Hyperhidrosis Q & A

Findlay MedSpa

What is hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that involves overactive sweat glands. While it is normal for the body to produce sweat, if you suffer from hyperhidrosis, you sweat excessively. Sweat doesn’t give your skin a moist glow; it actually runs off of your body.

Treating the condition involves using lasers, specifically CynoSure’s Precision Tx® to ablate the sweat glands that are producing excessive amounts of sweat. Sweat gland ablation is minimally invasive and targets sweat glands that tend to produce an overabundance of fluid. It frequently involves the glands in the armpit and the groin. 

What causes hyperhidrosis?

The initial cause of hyperhidrosis isn’t known, but many different conditions and factors may influence how much you sweat. Anxiety and panic disorders may contribute to your excessive sweating, but many medical professionals believe that the sympathetic nervous system plays a direct role in how your body responds to stimuli and how much sweat it produces with each response.

Cancer, infections, the use of certain types of medications, and malfunctions within the endocrine system typically cause secondary hyperhidrosis. Your MedSpa professional will be able to determine a possible cause and formulate a treatment plan based on that information.

How is hyperhidrosis treated?

Your Findlay MedSpa provider can treat hyperhidrosis with laser ablation. Your practitioner uses this method to damage the sweat glands, so they no longer produce sweat. This technique is commonly used for sweat glands that are located under the arms.  Botox is also a technique to used temporarily reduce excessive sweating, however this must be repeated when results wear off.
