Hyperhidrosis: Causes, Symptoms, and Effective Treatments

Hyperhidrosis, commonly known as excessive sweating, is a medical condition characterized by uncontrollable and disproportionate sweating beyond what is necessary for the body’s thermoregulation. This condition can significantly impact a person’s daily life, causing discomfort, embarrassment, and, in some cases, social withdrawal. At Sculpt Medispa, we understand the challenges posed by hyperhidrosis and offer effective treatments to help you regain control over your perspiration.

Causes of Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis can be categorized into two types: primary and secondary.

Primary Hyperhidrosis:

This form has no underlying medical cause and is often localized to specific areas, such as the palms, soles, underarms, and face.

Genetics may play a role, as it often runs in families.

Secondary Hyperhidrosis:

This type is associated with an underlying medical condition or medication side effects.

Causes may include hormonal imbalances, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, or certain medications.

Symptoms of Hyperhidrosis

The primary symptom of hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating that goes beyond what is considered normal for environmental conditions or physical activity. Individuals with hyperhidrosis may experience:

Persistent wetness: Frequent and noticeable wetness in specific body areas.

Discoloration: Skin may become discolored due to constant moisture.

Odor: Excessive sweating can contribute to body odor.

Effective Treatments at Sculpt Medispa

Managing hyperhidrosis involves addressing both the physical and emotional aspects of excessive sweating. At Sculpt Medispa, we offer advanced and proven treatments to help you overcome the challenges associated with hyperhidrosis.

  1. Botox for Hyperhidrosis:

Botox injections are a highly effective and FDA-approved treatment for hyperhidrosis.

Botox temporarily blocks nerve signals in the treated area, reducing sweat production.

Commonly treated areas include the underarms, palms, and soles.

  1. Prescription Antiperspirants:

Stronger than over-the-counter options, prescription antiperspirants can be effective in managing localized sweating.

They often contain aluminum chloride, a potent sweat-blocking agent.

  1. Oral Medications:

In some cases, oral medications such as anticholinergics may be prescribed to reduce overall sweat production.

These medications should be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional.

  1. Microwave Thermolysis (MiraDry):

MiraDry is a non-invasive procedure that uses microwave energy to eliminate sweat glands in the underarms.

This long-lasting solution provides significant relief from excessive underarm sweating.
