Hyperhidrosis Treatment Q & A

Plastic Surgery Associates of Southern Indiana

What is hyperhidrosis or ‘excessive sweating’?

Excessive sweating occurs when you sweat beyond what is normal. While everyone needs to sweat a certain amount to survive, those who suffer from excessive sweating may experience sweat even when it’s unnecessary for cooling or removing toxins from the body.

Hyperhidrosis can make even the most everyday activities, like turning a doorknob, more difficult. Both children and adults can have hyperhidrosis as it can develop at any age.

The most common areas of the body to experience hyperhidrosis are the feet, palms, head, or underarms. It’s possible that you may feel excessive sweat in these areas, but won’t be sweating elsewhere on the body.

What causes hyperhidrosis or ‘excessive sweating’?

A variety of factors can cause hyperhidrosis. In some cases, hyperhidrosis is more likely to occur for those who have a relative with the condition. Medical conditions like diabetes or a tumor can also cause hyperhidrosis, as can certain medications or food supplements.

Dr. Wise and Dr. Weber will help you determine the cause of your hyperhidrosis and develop a plan to treat it safely and effectively.

How is hyperhidrosis or ‘excessive sweating’ treated?

At Plastic Surgery Associates of Southern Indiana, Dr. Wise and Dr. Weber use PresicionTx™ laser therapy technology and Botox injections to reduce hyperhidrosis symptoms effectively.

PrecisionTx laser therapy directly targets sweat glands and ablates (eliminates) their function. This minimally invasive treatment requires no downtime and causes limited discomfort.

Botox® injections reduce sweating by blocking the nerves that cause it. Botox can help reduce symptoms for up to one year, after which the injections are repeatable.

In addition to laser and Botox therapy, prescription antiperspirants and creams may be used to treat hyperhidrosis topically. Nerve-blocking medications can help ease hyperhidrosis symptoms, too, as can lifestyle changes that make dealing with your condition easier.
