You’ve learned to manage your excessive sweating by different means — carrying an extra shirt, doubling up on antiperspirant, keeping your hands close to your sides. Not only are these efforts exhausting, but you’re tired of the constant threat of embarrassment that often comes with excessive sweating.
At Elite Skin Center in Fort Worth, Texas, our highly skilled team of aesthetic specialists understands the problem, which is why we offer a number of different treatments and advanced technologies that tackle excessive sweating.
Under normal circumstances, your body produces sweat to maintain an optimal body temperature. When you have hyperhidrosis, which is the medical term for excessive sweating, your body produces far more sweat than is necessary to control your body temperature.
While you might think that your excessive sweating is due to too many sweat glands, this isn’t the case. In reality, the problem lies in the sympathetic nerve that controls your glands.
There are two types of hyperhidrosis:
Whatever the underlying cause of your excessive sweating, you’re left with an embarrassing amount of sweat that typically develops in your underarms, hands, face, trunk, or feet.
If you’ve been struggling with excessive sweating, you've likely found ways to work around the problem as it arises, but you’d like a longer-term solution. At Elite Skin Center, we offer a number of different hyperhidrosis treatments, which include:
The prescription antiperspirants and creams we offer are far stronger than what you’ll find at your local pharmacy, and they can go a long way toward keeping you more dry.
If you’d prefer a solution that doesn’t require a daily effort, you might consider Botox injections. We inject this neurotoxin to quiet the nerves responsible for creating the excessive sweating. A Botox treatment typically lasts for 3-6 months, at which point you can return for another round of injections.
Our Morpheus8® radiofrequency (RF) microneedling system is another great, long-term solution for underarm sweat. Using tiny needles that deliver RF energy, we desensitize and disrupt your sweat glands, causing them to produce far less sweat.
If you’re worried that these treatments will affect your ability to control your body temperature, consider that only 2% of your body’s sweat glands are located under your arms.
