Sweaty No More! Three Ways to Overcome Hyperhidrosis
Do you often find yourself stressed out by sweat? Do you suffer through embarrassing underarm sweat? Do you avoid shaking people’s hands because your palms are always sweaty? Are you embarrassed to take off your shoes because your feet stink from sweat? You don’t have to live with excessive sweat! We’ve got safe, effective treatments to help you overcome sweaty underarms, palms, and feet.
Sweating is a natural part of life, a bodily function designed to help keep our bodies cool when we’re active. It’s perfectly normal to sweat under your arms when you’re exercising or nervous, but for some people, that sweating becomes excessive. If you are bothered by underarm sweating that causes staining and embarrassment, you probably have a medical condition called hyperhidrosis.
• Sweaty underarms? Try miraDry. Are you concerned about subjecting yourself to toxic chemicals every day when you apply your deodorant? Have you found that natural deodorants don’t work for you? There’s a better way to control underarm sweat. The miraDry system is the only FDA-approved method for addressing the root cause of excessive underarm sweat and odor. Using thermal energy, miraDry targets and eliminates the sweat and odor glands under your arms. The treatment typically only takes an hour and, in most cases, yields immediate results. During the treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied, and then the miraDry applicator is passed over the skin. Using light suction to bring the sweat glands closer to the device, miraDry then uses light energy to target the sweat glands, leaving your skin’s surface cool. After the treatment, you’ll notice an immediate, long-term reduction in perspiration. In most cases, only one treatment is needed. However, in rare cases, two treatments may be required to achieve permanent results. After miraDry, you can ditch deodorants for good!
Hyperhidrosis can affect other parts of the body, too. Your palms are one such area, and excessively sweaty palms can lead to embarrassing social interactions.
• Sweaty palms? Botox and other similar injectables provide effective treatment for sweaty palms. When you hear “Botox”, you probably think about wrinkles. However, injections of botulinum toxin A (Botox) can also help with sweaty hands. Botox prevents the release of a chemical that signals the sweat glands to activate, and the results of Botox for hyperhidrosis can last for up to a year. And while Botox is the best-known injectable for hyperhidrosis, there are several other on the market. We’ll look beyond Botox if needed and find the treatment that’s right for you.
Feet that sweat too much can smell bad, but they may also be affected by health issues like athlete’s foot and toenail fungus. Fortunately, there are solutions for all of these hyperhidrosis problems.
• Sweaty feet benefit from injectables like Botox as well. Your doctor can target the right areas to prevent sweating, and the procedure is typically repeated every six months.
