Do you sweat much more than your friends and family? You may have Hyperhidrosis.
Hyperhidrosis is abnormal sweating in excess of the body’s normal cooling requirements. In some people the sweat literally drips off of them, even while a friend nearby may be completely dry. It is estimated that 2-3% of the population suffers from this condition.
Many people find the condition socially awkward. Some may even avoid certain social situations because of it. It can affect the whole body. Most people find the palms, feet, face, and underarms the most troubling.
How Much Sweating is Normal?
Everyone sweats. The body uses sweating for temperature regulation through evaporative cooling. So the hotter it is, the more you are exerting yourself, the more you should sweat. But some people sweat abnormal amounts when they aren’t hot or exerting themselves. There are different ways of testing the amount you sweat, like collecting and weighing it. But these tests usually aren’t performed. Great advances in non-invasive treatments have come in recent years. So the bottom line is this. Whether your sweating level is above average or not. If you find sweating problematic, you can easily solve the problem.
What Treatments Are Available for Hyperhidrosis?
Of the 2 -4 million sweat glands in your body only about only 2% of those are in your underarms. But it is the underarms that typically cause people the greatest concern. Most of the treatments below focus on this area.
MiraDry is a new generation of FDA approved, non-invasive technology that uses focused energy to eliminate the apocrine glands. Results are immediate and it is not necessary to keep repeating the treatments over and over. Often only a single treatment is required, sometimes a second.
Botox works by blocking your body’s signals that tell the sweat glands to activate. Treatments must be repeated and results may last for up to a year between treatments.
Precision Tx is an FDA approved, minimally-invasive technology that uses laser energy to eliminate the apocrine glands. Results are immediate and it is not necessary to keep repeating the treatments over and over. Often only a single treatment is required, sometimes a second.
