Cleveland professional offers treatment for excessive sweating
At Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine in the Cleveland area, we believe that everyone should have access to treatments that make them look and feel their absolute best. A condition affecting many men and women that can be incredibly embarrassing is excessive sweating. The medical term for this is hyperhidrosis.
Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating commonly seen in the underarm area as well as the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Patients with hyperhidrosis may find that no matter what antiperspirant they use, they still sweat through their clothing in a matter of minutes. Patients with hyperhidrosis may find that they layer clothing, lean towards black or dark-colored outfits, and ruin many clothes due to staining. It can also be embarrassing in social situations to be sweating profusely even when they are cool and comfortable.
Treatment for excessive sweating will vary depending on the severity of the condition, and the most appropriate option can be discussed with one of our professionals.
For some patients, anticholinergic medication can help in reducing perspiration to a more manageable point. This can be used in conjunction with special prescription-strength antiperspirants that can be made available by our team of professionals.
Others may consider injectables such as Botox. Botox is a neuromodulator that can be injected for short-term relief. Reinjection should be done approximately every six months to ensure continued results. This can be done for patients who have moderate cases of hyperhidrosis.
As a last resort, some patients choose surgery. Surgery can be done to remove or damage the sweat glands for permanent treatment. Patients who have this done will not experience further issues with their hyperhidrosis and can live their life with much less perspiration at the forefront of their minds!
