Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is a debilitating issue for some people. Sufferers are unable to wear particular clothes because the problem of excessive sweating is so obvious and embarrassing. 

 

How can hyperhydrosis be treated?

Hyperhydrosis is a clinical issue that can be treated. Traditional approaches available include prescription drugs like Robinul, clinical strength antiperspirants, and topical aluminum chloride.

Botox and Dysport are options for treating hyperhidrosis of the underarms, but this is a costly option and requires regular re-treatment to be effective. We use this option to treat only the hyperhidrosis of the palms and feet because our preferred treatment RF Microneedling is not appropriate for these areas.

MiraDry, a device, has been  used to more permanently eliminate the issue of excessive sweating of the underarms. However, it is not always effective, and the cost is prohibitive to the patients to potential providers.

FAQs

What is the latest and best option available for treating excessive sweating?

Radiofrequency microneedling is highly preferred for its amazing anti-aging and rejuvenating results. It is also used for the destruction of the sweat glands due the thermal tissue reaction that can be created with radiofrequency microneedling.

This results in a decrease of functional sweat glands ending the embarrassment of excessive sweating.
