Hyperhidrosis

Are you always feeling the heat? Worried about a wet handshake? Is perspiration interfering with your job and relationships?

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive sweating, beyond what is required for normal thermoregulation. This condition usually begins in childhood or during teenage years. It most commonly affects the palms, soles, and armpits, but can affect other parts of the body as well including the face, scalp, chest and back.

In most cases, there is no trigger for hyperhidrosis. However, speak your doctor about potential diseases, metabolic disorders, febrile illnesses, or medications that might lead to excessive sweating.

Treatment

Don’t sweat the small stuff; treatment is available to those who suffer from excess sweating. Prescription antiperspirants, anticholinergicpills, iontophoresis, BOTOX® injections and surgery have been used depending on the severity.

miraDry® is a novel FDA approved treatment that uses electromagentic energy to permanently reduce underarm sweating and decrease perspiration levels by over 80%.
