Find Relief from Excessive Sweating

If you experience excessive sweating of the hands, feet, or underarms, you probably have primary hyperhidrosis. Primary hyperhidrosis typically starts in childhood or puberty, and our team is here to help you manage it. Dr. Chiang will outline a treatment ladder that advances from prescription-strength antiperspirants to oral medications, BOTOX, and MiraDry for underarm sweating.

Do I have Hyperhidrosis?

People who have excessive underarm sweating often wear dark clothing, change their clothing several times a day, and may suffer from embarrassment and social anxiety. Those with excessive hand sweating may also avoid shaking hands or have trouble with activities that require dry hands (opening a slippery jar). Similarly, sweaty feet lead can cause problems related to too much moisture: athlete’s foot, bacterial infections, dermatitis, and stinky feet.

Here at Integrated Aesthetics, our team will help you find the relief you deserve from this frustrating condition, so you can live your life in comfort.

What Causes Hyperhidrosis?

Under normal circumstances, sweating results in evaporation, and the evaporation works to cool the body in hot temperatures. Sweating, however, can also occur in response to mental stress, such as being nervous or anxious. We do not know exactly why some people are more prone to sweating excessively. We do know, however, that people with hyperhidrosis have overactive sweat glands that secrete excessively in response to social or physical stress. We also know that this condition seems to run in families. Whatever your cause may be, it’s our goal to find you a solution that enables you to truly enhance your overall quality of life.

How to Prevent Hyperhidrosis

Some people who suffer from primary hyperhidrosis can identify triggers for their sweating. Consider evaluating if avoiding common triggers such as hot showers, spicy foods, alcohol, stress, caffeine, and tobacco are helpful.

Clothing that wicks away moisture can help keep you comfortable. In addition to these preventative measures, we’ll also work closely with you to educate you on the various treatments we offer that can help with hyperhidrosis.

Treatments for Excessive Sweating

If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, rest assured that there are many treatments that can help control the condition. Dr. Chiang will outline a treatment ladder that advances from prescription-strength antiperspirants to oral medications, Botox, and even MiraDry for underarm sweating.

  • Antiperspirants: Prescription antiperspirants plug the sweat ducts to keep sweat from reaching the surface of the skin.  The active ingredient in antiperspirants, aluminum, works by making sweat proteins form a plug, blocking the sweat gland.
  • Anticholinergics: Oral anticholinergic agents work by decreasing the activity of your sweat glands. Their main drawbacks are that this may result in overheating in active patients, as well as side effects such as dry mouth.
  • BOTOX, Dysport, and other neuromodulators: Neuromodulators such as BOTOX and Dysport can be used to decrease sweat when they are injected into the excessively-sweating area. Common areas for treatment include the hands, feet, scalp, forehead, and skin under the breasts or groin. The procedure is typically effective for 6 months or more.
  • miraDry: miraDry is a permanent treatment that uses microwave energy to destroy sweat glands in the armpits. Typically, we find the best results with two treatments spaced about three months apart. On average, sweating is reduced by about 80%.
