The Facts about Hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a condition that affects millions of people around the world. Uncontrolled sweating can occur in various parts of the body including the face, hands, feet or underarms. Although high temperatures or stress can increase perspiration, they don’t cause hyperhidrosis. Instead, hyperhidrosis may be an inherited trait that stops the body from properly regulating its temperature. Until now, excessive sweating has been difficult to control. At Cosmos Clinic we offer a non-surgical treatment for hyperhidrosis that delivers long-lasting improvements.
