What Is Excessive Sweating?

Do you deal with excessive sweating in most situations? If so, you may be one of the many individuals dealing with the challenges of hyperhidrosis, a medical condition. This occurs when a person produces too much sweat, often in specific areas like the hands, feet, or underarms.

What Causes Excess Sweating?

This condition can occur at any age and affects individuals of all genders. The underlying cause of hyperhidrosis can vary, with one possible culprit being an overactive sympathetic nervous system. Certain medical conditions or specific medications can also contribute to hyperhidrosis. This medical condition is categorized into primary focal hyperhidrosis and secondary generalized hyperhidrosis. Let us explain the two categories.

Primary focal hyperhidrosis: This involves excessive sweating in specific areas like palms, feet, underarms, or the face. It typically occurs independently and is triggered by stress, heat, or certain activities.

Secondary generalized hyperhidrosis: This type is linked to an underlying medical condition or medication side effects, causing widespread or larger area sweating. Identifying and treating the underlying cause or adjusting medications can help manage it.

What Are The Excessive Sweating Solutions At MD Skin Lab?

At MD Skin Lab, we offer an effective treatment to help our patients with excess sweating.

Hyperhidrosis Botox

By targeting the sweat gland, the neuromodulator inhibits the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for stimulating sweat production. As a result, the injection of Botox® reduces sweat production in the treated area. This helps patients regain their confidence, improve their quality of life and significantly enhance their overall well-being. Results generally last 6-9 months, depending on the individual.
