Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, can be a frustrating and embarrassing condition that affects many people. It can occur in any area of the body, but is most commonly found on the palms, soles of the feet, and underarms. While it is normal for the body to sweat in order to regulate temperature, those with hyperhidrosis produce much more sweat than is necessary for this purpose.
There are several causes of excessive sweating, including genetics, hormonal imbalances, and medical conditions such as hyperthyroidism or diabetes. In some cases, it may also be a side effect of certain medications.
The good news is that there are effective treatment options available for those suffering from hyperhidrosis. At our cosmetology clinic, we offer several options for reducing excessive sweating, including:
Antiperspirants: Antiperspirants are a simple and effective option for reducing sweating in the underarms. They work by blocking the sweat glands and preventing sweating.
Botox injections: Botox injections can be used to block the nerves that stimulate sweat production in the underarms, palms, and soles of the feet. These injections are usually administered every six to nine months.
Iontophoresis: This treatment involves the use of a machine that delivers a low electrical current to the affected area. The current helps to block the sweat glands and reduce sweating.
MiraDry: MiraDry is a non-invasive treatment that uses microwave energy to destroy the sweat glands in the underarms. This treatment is permanent and requires little downtime.
