Don’t Sweat It ~ Treatments for Hyperhidrosis

Do you suffer from excess sweating, also known as Hyperhidrosis?

If so, you know the embarrassment and inconvenience of dripping foreheads, soaked shirts, and sweaty palms.

Sweat is a naturally occurring cooling system to help the body regulate and maintain a normal body temperature. In this process, the brain signals the nervous system to prompt sweat glands to release liquid to combat the heat generated from the environment, exercise, or stress.

But, in some patients, nerves regulating this system can go into overdrive and result in extreme and excessive sweating in the underarm, scalp, palms, feet, and other body parts. Studies suggest that about 3% of Americans suffer from Hyperhidrosis.

Despite environmental conditions and levels of exertion or stress, the body produces soaking amounts of sweat that can be hard to hide.

Your first line of defense against Hyperhidrosis is antiperspirants. Several good over-the-counter options include Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid, Certain Dri Clinical Prescription Strength Antiperspirant, and SweatBlock Antiperspirant, all available on Amazon.

Some top prescription antiperspirants include Xerac AC, Odaban, and Drysol. These potent formulas require careful application and usage. Your physician should review those instructions with you based on the product chosen.

In many of our patients, even prescription-strength antiperspirants are just not enough to curb sweat production, and the outcomes can be challenging to live with.

These patients constantly must blot or change clothing throughout the day, making it hard to maintain a calm, cool, and professional appearance. Sweaty conditions can also be a significant source of embarrassment, low confidence, and self-esteem at the workplace, at school, or in social situations.

At RX Aesthetics, we offer a proven way to treat and control Hyperhidrosis and give our patients the confidence to live their days without the embarrassing body-soaking and odor-causing conditions it causes.

Dysport and Botox injections have proven to be most effective in eliminating excessive sweat. Both are neurotoxins, muscle relaxants that diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face and forehead. But they also go far in helping to prevent Hyperhidrosis.

These injections block nerve impulses from the brain that signal the sweat glands to produce sweat. They relax muscle activity to halt the production of secretions, alleviating severe sweating in the treated area without harming the nerves and muscles.

The treatment involves a series of injections with a tiny needle just below the skin’s surface at the afflicted area. These medical injections are fast and painless and require no post-treatment downtime.  Results appear within two to three weeks and can last from six to nine months. And your body will tell you when you are ready for the next visit.

We have achieved outstanding results for both men and women.

Up to 90 percent of patients with underarm sweat report a ninety-percent decrease in sweating.
