Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which the body’s natural cooling mechanisms fail to function normally causing excessive sweating. This condition affects up to 3% of the population and can occur in the face, armpits, hands as well as groin. People with hyperhidrosis often complain of uncontrollable sweating in the armpits and a foul odor. This can be embarrassing and uncomfortable impacting daily activities and social interaction. For those with this condition, sweating can occur spontaneously or in response to stress and exercise. It can also occur during the middle of the night or in the middle of an important social gathering.
Numerous treatment options exist including topical over-the-counter and prescription deodorants. Other treatment options include Botox injections in the affected areas. This acts by blocking the nerves that activate sweat glands. However, Botox treatments can be quite costly and often only last for up to 4-6 months.
Neaman Plastic Surgery is proud to offer one of the newest innovative techniques in hyperhidrosis treatment. Resulting from overactive sweat glands, we treat excessive sweating utilizing the Infini microneedling machine. This device uses radio frequency energy to destroy sweat glands resulting in a reduction of sweating of up to 70 – 80%. Each treatment typically last 6 months but longer lasting results are common (up to a year).
