The body was designed to sweat when it’s hot or nervous. Profuse sweating for no reason may mean you have hyperhidrosis.
Do you feel like you’re sweating way too much?
Are you soaking through your clothing even when the weather is cool or when you’re sedentary?
Are the sweat stains and damage costing a fortune in dry cleaning and ruined wardrobes?
Stop sweat from messing with your confidence on the job, at school, on dates, and in other everyday situations. Take back control and end the hassle, embarrassment, and expense. This is a treatable medical condition and we’ve got solutions.
The medical term for excessive sweating is hyperhidrosis and the causes are many. That’s why we always begin by fully assessing your health and risk factors.
What Is Hyperhidrosis? There Are 2 Types:
Primary focal hyperhidrosis
There tends to be a genetic component to this type of hyperhidrosis. In such cases, the body sweats excessively from one or a few areas only while remaining dry elsewhere. This condition most commonly affects the feet, hands, underarms, and face/head. It’s annoyingly odd to be dripping and slippery in such a localized way.
Secondary means there’s an underlying condition responsible for your sweats such as an infection, diabetes, menopause, gout, or an overactive thyroid. Side effects from medications and supplements can also be at play. Usually, the entire body sweats excessively in this scenario accompanied by sweating in bed while you sleep.
How To Control Sweating: Your Treatment Options
Hyperhidrosis can resolve when the underlying cause is properly assessed and treated. For this reason, it’s important to go to a medical doctor. Dr. Robin Evans is a great diagnostic detective!
Botox® for Hyperhidrosis
For many, the most elegant and effective solution is injections of Botulinum toxin into the affected areas. Treatment typically results in effective reduction—and sometimes even the complete elimination—of excessive sweating for a period of 6 months. The application of a topical anesthetic makes the injections virtually painless.
Iontophoresis can be performed with a device that passes a mild electrical current through water to treat the affected areas. Iontophoresis improves excessive sweating with repeated, life-long treatments.
We also offer prescription-strength antiperspirants, but hyperhidrosis is poorly managed with topical therapies alone.
