Although most sweating occurs during exercise or in a hot environment, for some, sweating occurs beyond what is expected. Hyperhidrosis, also known as severe underarm sweating, is a medical condition that involves abnormal, excessive sweating due to overactive sweat glands.
Do you have excessive underarm sweating?
While people with severe underarm sweating seek out different antiperspirants, these products may not work well enough. Hyperhidrosis can also cause a patient to feel embarrassed and self-conscious when out in public. Fortunately, we can treat your hyperhidrosis with injectable anti-wrinkle treatments, such as Dysport®, or XEOMIN®, to provide you with dry underarms.
Hyperhidrosis Ideal Candidates
Patients who wish to treat their hyperhidrosis with injectable treatments must be in good health and have realistic expectations regarding their results. A member of our medspa staff will assess your condition during your consultation to determine the best plan for you. Most patients who undergo this type of treatment are experiencing the following issues:
- Sweating is interfering with certain daily activities
- Sweating is causing emotional or social distress
- Excess sweating soaks through your clothes
- Night sweats for no apparent reason
These are FDA-approved, non-surgical treatments performed as an outpatient procedure. During your treatment, your skin will be anesthetized or iced. The anti-wrinkle treatment will then be injected multiple times into the armpits using a small needle to temporarily block the nerves in your body that are causing you to sweat.
Because this is a non-invasive procedure, no downtime is required. You can immediately return to all daily activities following your treatment.
Patients who undergo injectable treatment for their hyperhidrosis can expect long-lasting results that will provide them with dry underarms and boost their self-confidence. Results can last up to 12 months but patients will need maintenance injections once the effects wear off.
