Excessive Sweating Treatments
Excessive sweating which is also known as hyperhidrosis is a very real and embarrassing problem that individuals are facing. Sweating is a physiological function regulated by your nervous system. Most of us sweat normally to maintain our body temperature in warm/hot conditions. Although, it can become disordered and troublesome even in the absence of these factors.
Hyperhidrosis can be classified as either primary or secondary hyperhidrosis. Primary hyperhidrosis is not due to any particular underlying reason, and can result in excessive sweating in the palms, feet, underarms, face and scalp. There is usually an associated family history. Secondary hyperhidrosis is a result of an underlying medical condition such as infection, endocrine disorders, metabolic disorders, neoplastic diseases, neurological conditions, spinal cord injuries, cardiovascular disorders, respiratory disorders, anxiety and stress. The treatment of secondary hyperhidrosis will require treatment of the underlying problem or cause. There are many different treatments for excessive sweating. At Skin Club we focus on treating excessive sweating with anti wrinkle injections and medication.
Anti wrinkle injections are a new treatment option for people that suffer from hyperhidrosis. You may be a candidate for Botox if your sweating fails to improve with prescription antiperspirants and other forms of medication. Anti wrinkle injections have been FDA-approved for people who sweat excessively from their armpits. It may also be used to reduce sweating in other areas, such as the hands, feet, and face. These injections work by blocking the nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands. Normally, your nervous system activates your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. This is how your body automatically cools itself. In people with hyperhidrosis, however, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive. Anti wrinkle injections are a highly effective treatment for individuals who suffer from excessive sweating and can improve their quality of life significantly.
