Struggling with excessive sweating is so not fun. It may impact your social life, self-confidence, and overall quality of life. So let's get into it: what is hyperhydrosis and what options do you have to overcome excessive sweating?
What is Hyperhydrosis?
Hyperhydrosis is abnormally excessive sweating that may not be due to exercise or heat. Excessive sweating can damage your clothes, cause you social anxiety, and disrupt normal daily activities. The main reason for hyperhydrosis is that when you're moving, exercising, when you're body is overheated, or when you're feeling emotional, nerves activate your sweat glands. When those nerves overreact, it causes hyperhydrosis. Sweat glands are plentiful on the feet, hands, face, and armpits.
How to Stop Excessive Sweating with Aesthetic Procedures
If you visit the doctor's office for hyperhydrosis, they will usually put you on some sort of medication or recommend a certain prescription deodorant to stop your sweat glands from producing too much sweat. Sometimes these medications do not work for intense hyperhydrosis, but don't sweat it, our Medspa has two options available to mitigate excessive sweating.
Botox Injections for Hyperhydrosis: Botox injections use botulinum toxin to suppress the nerves responsible for triggering sweat glands. Each armpit receives about 50 units of Botox - 100 units total. Retreatment is typically needed within 4-6 months, but overtime, that window lessens. With an original value of $1200, The Lotus offers this treatment for $900.
RF Microneedling for Hyperhydrosis: This treatment is typically used for anti-aging and rejuvenation results, however, it is more common now to utilize RF Microneedling as a permanent solution to excessive sweating. Due to the thermal tissue reaction of your skin, RF Microneedling destroys sweat glands. Some patients may require up to 3 procedures to achieve complete sweat resolution, but some may only need 1. Treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart and a once a year maintenance procedure is recommended. The Lotus Offers this treatment for $650.
