Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is a medical condition that can affect both men and women and significantly interfere with daily life. It occurs primarily in the underarms, scalp, hands, and feet.
Although neurologic, metabolic, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause excessive sweating, most cases occur in people who are otherwise healthy. Heat and emotions may trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from it sweat nearly all the time, regardless of their mood or the temperature.
Note that hyperhidrosis is diagnosed by a physician and, as this is a medical procedure, you may be covered by your extended health insurance. The View Laser team is willing to assist patients with this process.
Affected areas:
Body, underarms, scalp, hands, and feet.

Botox® Therapeutic is not covered under the provincial health care plan. Private insurance may provide full or partial coverage. We recommend that patients inquire with their insurance about coverage prior to a consultation with Dr. Ray. Forms required to qualify for third-party coverage can be completed by your family doctor. Dr. Ray can complete necessary paperwork at a fee not covered under the medical plan; this fee will vary depending on application complexity. Please contact our office for more information.
