Excessive Sweating: What’s the Best Treatment Option?

If you feel like you sweat excessively, you may have a medical condition called hyperhidrosis.  This condition can impact your daily life and social interactions.  However, there is hope for those with this condition.  At Advanced Skin and Laser Center, we have treatments for excessive sweating in Nashville that can help you to feel more comfortable and confident!

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive sweating beyond what’s required  for regulating your body temperature. This could could mean excessive sweat in your underarms, hands, feet, or face. The exact cause is unknown.  Most people will have at least one episode of excessive sweating a week.

Hyperhidrosis can cause anxiety and embarrassment in social situations and the workplace and consistent dampness can cause chafing and rashes, making it a medical issue that should be addressed with your doctor.

Treatments for Excessive Sweating

Thankfully, there are solutions to manage hyperhidrosis and and help you regain control of your sweat:

  • Botox Injections: Botox works by temporarily blocking the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. Injections are typically made in targeted areas like the underarms, hands, and feet. Results can last several months, and repeat treatments are needed.
  • Brella SweatControl Patch: Brella is designed to address excessive sweating in the armpits. A patch is applied by your medical provider for up to three minutes.  The Brella SweatControl Patch consists of a thin sodium sheet with an adhesive backing.  When the sodium comes in contact with your sweat, it creates localized heat that targets the sweat glands to reduce sweat production.  Results typically last for around three months.
