Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating, known medically as hyperhidrosis, may occur on the palms, underarms, feet, and face. Usually caused by overactive nerves or sweat glands, this is not typical heavy sweating due to stress, exercise, or heat. Excessive sweating can have a negative impact on self-esteem and cause embarrassment in business and social situations.

In mild cases, topical prescription-strength antiperspirants are effective. In more severe cases, oral medications or neurotoxin injections can be used to decrease the activity of the sweat glands.

Treatments

Brella™
No needles necessary!
The Brella patch is a prescription product designed to be applied at a healthcare provider’s office for approximately 3 minutes and works via a method called targeted alkali thermolysis (TAT) based on the principle that heat is generated when sodium meets water. The result is that when the Brella™ sodium patch is applied, there’s an interaction between the water in sweat and the sodium in the patch that generates a targeted amount of heat, causing microthermal injury to the sweat glands that inactivates those glands for some time. The process is non-invasive and does not involve needles. Results have been reported to last 3 to 4 months.

Neurotoxin
Tiny amounts of neurotoxin such as Botox or Dysport are injected into the underarms, groin, scalp, hands or feet. Neurotoxins block the nerve signals that instruct the sweat glands to become active. With long-lasting results, this safe and effective treatment can have a dramatic effect on your quality of life. Results are noticeable within 2-4 days after treatment, with full effect within 2 weeks. Each treatment can last for 4-12 months.

Genius RF Microneedling
Already an effective treatment for diminishing acne scarring, improving skin texture, softening wrinkles, Genius RF is also effective for treating hyperhidrosis. It combines the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency energy to treat the deepest layers of the skin. The heat generated by the radio-frequency energy effectively destroys the targeted sweat glands.
