Hyperhidrosis (Treatment for Severe Underarm Sweating)
We offer treatment for excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis)! Treatment options include:
Hydrosal Professional Antiperspirant Gel®
Hydrosol Professional is a unique product that contains 15% aluminum chloride and 2% salicylic acid. It is applied at night and the results last through the next day. It is recommended to be used nightly for a week, then used as needed (generally 2-3 times per week to maintain results). Common side effect is skin irritation, but that will generally go away as you continue to use the product. This is a great way to stop the yellow “armpit stains” on your clothing!
Botox is now FDA approved for excessive sweating! This is an effective treatment that works by blocking the stimulation of sweat glands, The treatment lasts over 6 months, and patients should notice improvement within 4 weeks. It requires about 15 injections in each underarm with a tiny needle. The treatment takes about 15 minutes, but you will be in the office for about 45 minutes. The clinical studies on Botox for excessive sweating found that 80% of patients reported a 50% reduction of underarm sweating at 4 weeks after the treatment.
