Hyperhidrosis®

Are you tired of constantly being embarrassed by excessive sweat? Do you avoid shaking hands in the workplace or sweat through your clothes leaving sweat stains behind that are unconcealable? You may be suffering from a condition called Hyperhidrosis! But don’t fret, with the help of Skin365, you have options!

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is an overactive sweat mechanism that can make daily activities uncomfortable. Whether it is excessive sweat in your armpits, hands, or feet, simple tasks can be a burden. While most people sweat to cool off, people suffering from Hyperhidrosis sweat even when they don’t need to cool down, resulting in stained clothes, difficulty in the workplace, and even simply opening a door handle can become a chore.

Commonly Asked Questions

Hyperhidrosis refers to excessive sweating which can be resistant to conventional topical antiperspirants. We are referring to underarm or axillary sweating in this article.
Treatment options are topical antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride in high prescription strength concentrations, surgical removal of the sweat glands (very extreme!), iontophoresis and Botox.
Aluminum chloride side effects are common. These include skin irritation, burning, itching, and redness that can discourage regular use of the product. Results were not satisfactory for most people in terms of the level of dryness achieved, according to a study in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, March 2008, and many could not use the product regularly because of skin irritation. In addition, some people may be wary about using aluminum antiperspirants and their potential association with dementia development later in life—although studies have not substantiated this claim.
Iontophoresis is a time-consuming procedure that needs to be maintained several times a week in order to enjoy the benefits. It can also cause skin irritation—ouch! Who has time to sit for 30-45 minutes a day connected to a saline machine?
Surgery is the very last resort option, needless to say.
Botox! Safe and effective!
The FDA approved the use of Botox for the treatment of excessive axillary hyperhidrosis as Botox blocks the secretion of a chemical that stimulates the sweat glands. How easy is that!
Botox takes effect in 7-10 days after injections. Studies show that the duration ranges from 6 months to 10 to 14 months! Some studies have reported up to two years duration!
The dosage of Botox depends on the area of sweat, but ranges from 50-100 units per underarm, injected pretty superficially. Side effects are what one may expect with any injection. The tiniest needles are used so you may feel a little superficial tenderness for a day or so, and rarely bruising.

So, Botox not only will make us wrinkle free and feel younger, it will also make us feel dry and underarm stain-free! Botox is our newest BFF!
