Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis, is a troublesome and sometimes humiliating condition affecting the sweat glands. These glands are responsible for regulating the body’s temperature, but in the case of hyperhidrosis, the glands become overactive and trigger the body to produce more sweat than it needs or wants.

The disorder typically manifests both day and night in the underarms, the feet, the hands, the whole body or just the face and can seriously disturb one’s routine, especially at work or when one must present a professional image.

Primary excessive sweating is an ailment that is almost always inherited and has its onset during the pre-teen or teenage years. Its cousin, secondary excessive sweating, is simply a side effect of health problems such as an infection, an endocrine disease, a neurological condition, malignancy or a spinal cord injury.

What can I do about it?

There are both surgical and non-surgical solutions for hyperhidrosis. Rest assured that one of our skilled Beverly Hills med spa practitioners will meet with you in the comfort of our Beverly Hills offices to discuss your best options for treatment. He or she will answer all of your questions in depth at that time.

Non-surgical treatment options

Excessive sweating can be effectively treated with BOTOX, a compound usually used for the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines due to aging. BOTOX interrupts the signal that allows the sweat glands to produce, preventing perspiration before it happens. BOTOX results last up to seven months on average. Many of our patients rely on The Biomedspa for some of the best results from Botox Beverly Hills can lay claim to.

Another recent development is MiraDry, a non-surgical energy-based treatment that destroys the sweat glands, leaving you free from embarrassing sweating.

Surgical treatment options

In cases where the temporary relief of BOTOX isn’t sufficient, the sympathetic nerve links can be severed through thoracic sympathectomy, a delicate surgical procedure involving an endoscope.

Some doctors also suggest liposuction for excessive sweating, which can permanently reduce the amount of liquid secreted from the body.
