Hyperhidrosis is the condition of excessive sweating. Sweating is your body’s normal mechanism to cool itself, but some people produce more sweat than is needed for cooling – called hyperhidrosis. This condition affects about 2 to 3 per cent of the population.
There are 2 categories of hyperhidrosis – primary and secondary.
In primary hyperhidrosis, the most common type, the cause of the excessive sweating is not known. It often starts in childhood or adolescence and tends to affect the palms, soles, armpits and sometimes the face and scalp. Rarely, primary hyperhidrosis may affect the whole body.
Stress and anxiety can make the sweating worse, and although the condition occurs in both warm and cool climates, it is usually worse at higher temperatures. Many people with primary hyperhidrosis have a family history of the condition. Sometimes hyperhidrosis improves on its own over time.
Secondary hyperhidrosis occurs when the excessive sweating is due to an underlying medical condition. It may affect the whole body. Some of the possible causes include diabetes, an overactive thyroid gland, obesity, menopause, infections, damage to nerves from disease or injury, some medicines (especially antidepressants) and, rarely, some tumours.
Excessive sweating can be socially embarrassing. It may stain the clothing. Hyperhidrosis of the soles may not only result in smelly feet, but may also damage footwear. People with hyperhidrosis of the palms are often embarrassed by a cold, wet handshake. They may have trouble using keypads and other electronic equipment.
Excessive sweating can also predispose you to skin infections such as warts and tinea. Certain other skin conditions, including eczema and rashes, occur more often in people with hyperhidrosis.
If you suffer from excessive sweating, you should discuss it with your doctor. He or she can determine whether you need to have any tests for secondary causes, and can also advise you on options for treatment.
Botulinum toxin type A (Botox) injections have been found to be effective for hyperhidrosis of the armpits. Botulinum toxin stops the sympathetic nerves (which normally control sweating) from stimulating the sweat glands, and the effect may last between 4 and 12 months. Side effects are generally minimal but may include pain at the injection sites and compensatory sweating in other areas.
Botulinum toxin type A injections have also been used for hyperhidrosis of the palms and soles, although this treatment is more complicated. Local anaesthetic is generally required for these injections, and side effects from botox injections to the palms may include temporary weakness of the hand muscles.
Using New Technology – The Plexr plasma soft surgery system was launched in the UK marketplace in 2014, and is manufactured by the GMC Group, which is based in Italy.
Plexr offers an alternative to invasive surgical cosmetic procedures, reducing recovery time and any complications that can arise before and after surgery.
It is an innovative development in aesthetic medicine and rejuvenating treatments, by utilising the fourth state of matter: Plasma.
The system is very precise and doesnt spread heat to surrounding areas, meaning it is perfect to operate on areas (such as eyelids), that are not really suitable for other devices, like radiofrequency scalpels or lasers. It is therefore marketed for use as a non-surgical blepharoplasty, or soft eyelid surgery.
There are a number of studies that have shown Plexr has positive results in the treatment of acne, excess eyelid skin and wrinkles around the mouth1-3.

Varicose veins are abnormally swollen and tortuous veins, often visible just beneath the skin. They can vary in size from quite small (2-3mm across) to very large (2-3cms across). Very small veins are called “thread veins” or “spider veins”. These veins are different to varicose veins because they are situated much closer or within the overlying skin.
Although they may be unsightly, they are not the same as varicose veins and can be more difficult to treat. Reticular veins are obvious varicose veins which are present beneath the skin and easily visible, but rather smaller than the larger knobbly veins. Reticular veins may only bulge the skin slightly if at all, whereas varicose veins tend to produce marked bulging of the skin.
Statistics suggest that 1 in 3 of all Australians less than 30 regret they ever got a tattoo. This has led to the rise in tattoo removals under that hands of trained and skilled medical professionals. Or Doctors use Laser to remove tattoo ink. The rapid absorption of Laser Light energy is absorbed by the tattoo pigment. This causes the tattoo ink to be shattered into tiny pieces, which are then removed by the body through its own natural filtration system
