Excessive Sweating Concern

Excessive Sweating Concern

Sweating is a normal bodily function needed to regulate temperature. Some people, however, suffer from excessive sweating beyond what’s required for thermal regulation. This condition is called hyperhidrosis.

The underlying cause is the overactivity of the sweat glands. Primary hyperhidrosis causes excessive sweating for no apparent reason. It most commonly affects the underarms, palms, soles of the feet, and face.

Excessive underarm sweating can be embarrassing, causing visible wetness and odors on shirts. It may also trigger skin irritation, chafing and infections. Those affected may be anxious about social activities and physical contact.

Several factors can trigger increased underarm sweat including stress, hormonal changes, certain foods and medications, obesity, and hot humid climates. Heredity also plays a role, as hyperhidrosis often runs in families.

Excessive Sweating Treatment

Excess sweating usually begins in childhood or adolescence. Without treatment, it tends to persist and affect quality of life. Thankfully, modern medical therapies like BTX and Secret RF can provide lasting relief by controlling overactive sweat glands.

Underarm BTX

Injections of botulinum toxin (BTX) temporarily block the nerve signals to sweat glands in the armpits. This dramatically reduces underarm sweating for 6-9 months.

FAQ for Excessive Sweating (Underarm & Hand) Treatment

The two leading options are BTX injections or Secret RF microneedling. BTX temporarily blocks sweat signals for 6-9 months. Secret RF destroys glands more permanently but requires 3-5 sessions.

Unfortunately, no treatment eliminates sweating 100% permanently. Secret RF can provide 1-2 years’ reduction before glands regenerate needing re-treatment. BTX lasts 6-9 months.

BTX injections involve minimal discomfort as the treatment area will be iced before starting. Secret RF also includes some pinpoint tenderness during and after the microneedling procedure. Pain is minimal as numbing cream will be applied.

BTX requires repeat sessions every 6-9 months. For Secret RF, most patients need 3-5 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal long-term sweat reduction.
