What is hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. Whether the average person is truly diagnosed, both men and women suffer from hyperhidrosis, sometimes without even knowing it! About 3% of Americans suffer from Hyperhidrosis. Excessive sweating is most common in underarms, hands and soles of the feet.

How do you get Hyperhidrosis?

There is no real medical cause for how one gets Hyperhidrosis, however it can be inherited through genetics. The excessive sweating can take place at unexpected times with no real reason or rhyme. This can be frustrating, embarrassing and hard to manage. 

What can I do to help my Hyperhidrosis?

There are a few things that can help Hyperhidrosis. You can start by getting a strong antiperspirant prescription from over the counter. The over the counter antiperspirants are stronger than what you can buy off of the shelf. For some individuals this can be enough to help their hyperhidrosis. 

Targeted laser therapy is another option that can help block these glands. This laser therapy is considered minimally invasive, making it less appealing. This typically makes Botox be what works best and is most desirable.

Why is Botox the best to help with my Hyperhidrosis? 

Although Hyperhidrosis doesn’t need a rhyme or reason to kick in, it usually starts when the nervous system activates glands, which causes the body’s temperature to rise. When individuals have over-active glands, these glands don’t slow down or stop – yep you guessed actually causes one to sweat even more! This is how the term ‘excessive sweating’ comes full circle.

For most, Botox is the best type of treatment for Hyperhidrosis as it paralyzes these nerves, so they won’t be able to signal sweat glands, when sweat glands don’t get signaled, we don’t sweat! TADA!Botox lasts 3 – 6 months. So imagine only having a few appointments a year, that keeps you from sweating!
