Everybody sweats. Sweating is a natural body function that helps us stay cool when we are in danger of overheating. However, if your sweating is becoming excessive, or you are sweating when you do not need to, you may be suffering from hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis can be embarrassing for sufferers to live with, especially if even prescription deodorants fail to keep the affected area dry.

Fortunately, at Dermasurge, we offer hyperhidrosis excessive sweating treatment for reducing excessive sweating, allowing patients to live an ordinary life free of unsightly damp patches.

Treatments to blocks the nerve impulses to the sweat glands, preventing them from producing sweat until the effects wear off can be done after a thorough consultation with Dr Hiba, our resident consultant dermatologist at Dermasurge Clinic
At Dermasurge, all aesthetic treatments, including hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) treatments, are performed by consultant dermatologist Dr Hiba Injibar. Prior to treatment patients are required to undergo an in-depth consultation so that a detailed, bespoke treatment plan may be agreed upon.
