Don't Sweat It: Treating Hyperhidrosis
The good news is that you sweat. After all, perspiration is a great way to regulate body temperature. The bad news may be that you sweat a little too much. It is estimated that 2-3 percent of the American population suffers from some form of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). While some have a problem with excessive underarm sweating, others sweat from other part of their bodies, such as their palms or feet. Experts aren’t sure if the cause is neurologic, metabolic, or systemic, but the outcome is the same. Excessive sweating can be embarrassing, complicate social interactions, hinder your confidence, and cause you to shy away from public gatherings.
At Laser Cliniqúe in San Diego, hyperhidrosis – excessive sweating is treated with BOTOX, a medication injected into the skin. Botox works by temporarily blocking neurotransmitters that stimulate the production of sweat. It can be used wherever excessive sweating is a problem, and it simply feels like a pinprick. Although repeat treatments are needed every three to six months, this revolutionary technique can squash your fear of sweating through that new outfit, or embarrassing yourself at a meeting.
You can rest assured that you’re in good hands when treated by P. Alexander Ataii, Medical Director of Laser Cliniqúe.
