The best treatment is knowledge.
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition described as: sweating beyond what is necessary to cool the body. The most common areas affected are the hands, feet, groin, face and underarms.
Hyperhidrosis can have a serious impact on self-confidence, personal relationships and even career success. But today's treatments offer hope. Innovative non-surgical approaches allow you to specifically treat the affected area painlessly and easily.
Does Everyone Sweat Like Me?
Almost every one sweats as a normal reaction to stress such as heat and exercise. However, hyperhidrosis is a medical condition described as: sweating beyond what is necessary to cool the body causing severe social and psychological embarrassment. It affects one in twenty people worldwide. Some people are so embarrassed by this condition that they never seek help from their medical doctors.
Sweating Is Treatable
Contrary to what many believe, excessive sweating is treatable.
Traditional therapies include:
- antiperspirants (applied on top of skin)
- surgical removal of sweat glands
- severing the sympathetic nerves linked to the sweat glands (sympathectomy)
- blocking the sweat glands with small galvanic electric currents (iontophoresis).
Although effective for most people, removal of sweat glands can lead to scarring in the underarms and other complications. Similarly, sympathectomy, which also is quite effective, carries the risk of unintended surgical side effects and rebound sweating in previously unaffected areas (compensatory hyperhidrosis).
In addition to these choices, some people can benefit from taking medicines (anticholinergics) by mouth that block the neural transmitters controlling the sweat glands. Although effective for many people, this therapy has the severe drawback of causing side effects in other body systems such as blurred vision, dry mouth, feeling bloated and constipation.
Conquering Your Sweating Problem the Easy Way
Botox® and Dysport, which have rapidly become one of the most commonly used anti-aging remedies, also blocks the sweat glands.
Since it is applied locally there are no widespread side effects. It works for almost every one. Each twenty-minute injection session can stop sweating for four to twelve months. For most people, this therapy is a delightful change, liberating them from daily worries of sweating in the wrong place at the wrong time.
