Sweating from heavy exertion or stress is perfectly normal. People with a condition called hyperhidrosis perspire beyond what is normal for temperature regulation, however. Hyperhidrosis can affect any body area but is more common in the underarms, feet, palms, and face. Excessive sweating can be embarrassing and interfere with normal daily activities in both social and professional settings. Dr. Marc DuPéré offers relief for men and women suffering from hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in Toronto.

Sweating is caused by secretion from the eccrine, or sweat, glands. The cause of excessive focal sweating is not known, but it may relate to nerve overactivity. Hyperhidrosis treatment consists of focused injections meant to reduce:
Although many topical treatments exist, most are aluminum-based products that are either ineffective or very irritating to the skin. There are injectable treatments that not only weaken muscles and soften wrinkles but they also block the sweat gland secretion. Dr. DuPéré treats hyperhidrosis successfully by using these injectables, sweat-blocking agents, for the problematic underarm sweat glands. These injections block the nerve signals that cause the glands to produce sweat.
This procedure requires no downtime.
Sweating is important to the body's ability to regulate its temperature. Fortunately, sweating in the underarm and hand areas is not the only mechanism to regulate body heat. Inner body heat adjustment and regulation can occur via the respiratory, digestive, and urinary systems. These mechanisms can work harder in response to elevated body heat.
