Hyperhidrosis

Reduce excessive sweating

Hyperhidrosis is a disease characterized by excessive and inadequate sweat production. It is absolutely normal to sweat if you are in a hot environment or practicing intense physical activity. However, if you discover that during a normal day, and for no apparent reason, you are sweating a lot from your hands, feet, armpits or head, then you are likely to suffer from hyperhidrosis.

There is primary hyperhidrosis, the most common situation, and there is secondary hyperhidrosis. There is no truly known cause for primary hyperhidrosis as it can appear during adolescence and has an inherited mark. Secondary hyperhidrosis usually appears after adolescence and has an associated underlying medical condition. In these cases, further investigation should be done by your physician to determine the cause(s).

The treatment options for hyperhidrosis are varied, depending on the parts of the body involved. Your physician should assess the location and severity of the situation and select the best option.

It is common practice for any corrective action to begin with medical prescriptions to reduce sweating and can move on to more complex treatments such as, for example, iontophoresis (where small electrical currents are used) or injections of botulinum toxin. Surgery can be seen as the last resort to treat this condition.

In the first treatment session, an assessment of the patient’s condition is carried out, in order to understand the degree of impact of hyperhidrosis on his or her life. The procedures used are non-surgical, performed by means of iontophoresis and will act as a “buffer” on the sweat glands. The treatment is completed with an appropriate laser technology that will enhance the effects of the previous procedure. Treatment may also be carried out with botulinum toxin (Botox).

The consultation is indicated for people who experience excessive sweating at any time, regardless of external factors.

Most people generally get good treatment results, reducing sweating considerably.

Proceeding with the remaining sessions beyond the first is essential for a significant improvement of results. As this is a non-definitive treatment, maintenance sessions are necessary.

The success rate, according to what is proven and referenced, is around 80% effective at the axillary level. However, since the condition of excessive sweating can be conditioned by several intrinsic and extrinsic factors, the improvement may not be as expected in certain people.
