Hyperhidrosis is one of the most physically and socially uncomfortable issues that a person can have. There are few things worse than constantly dripping sweat during professional presentations, in the middle of romantic encounters, or when simply traveling from place to place. If you’ve been dealing with excessive sweat, then you likely know that there’s very little that you can do on your own to prevent these humiliating episodes. Fortunately, however, professional treatment is making it possible for those who suffer from this condition to lead comfortable, confident and high-quality lives.
How We Can Help
Hyperhidrosis is caused by overactive sweat glands. While sweating is a natural reaction of the body to high heat, and a very efficient way to cool down, when the sweat glands kick into overdrive, this can leave people with soaking shirts, saturated socks, dripping foreheads, and many other embarrassing problems. Some people are able to limit the effects of their overactive sweat glands by simply applying prescription-strength antiperspirants to their affected areas. This, however, does not address the problem at its source.
Unlike prescription-strength antiperspirants, professional treatment is designed to address excessive sweating right at its source. It aims to disables the sweat glands in the treated area. As a result, sweating is put to a stop. Once you’ve received these treatments, you’ll be able to weather high-stress situations and engage in challenging physical activities without soaking your clothes and without having copious amounts of sweat run down your brow.
If you happen to be a long-term user of prescription-strength antiperspirants, you may be prone to developing painful bumps in or around your armpits. These typically form after heavy-antiperspirants have blocked the local pores. This won’t be an issue anymore about your hyperhidrosis treatment at our office.
Regain Your Confidence
Excessive sweating does a lot more than simply affect how people look on the outside. Although these events are common during times of high-stress, they can occur at any time. This makes it virtually impossible for hyperhidrosis sufferers to feel confident and relaxed in any social setting.
