Excess sweating (hyperhidrosis) can be an embarrassing issue. The skin experts at Trillium Creek Dermatology & Surgery Center can help you effectively treat your excess sweating with Botox injections or prescription topicals.
Botox is an easy and effective, FDA-approved treatment for excess sweating of the underarms.
Botox injections prevent the release of the chemical that signals sweat glands to activate. Results can last 6 – 12 months with optimum treatments.
miraDry® is a newer, non-invasive hyperhidrosis treatment. Using microwave technology, miraDry targets and eliminates sweat and odor glands from the armpits. The treatment uses a hand-held device to deliver electromagnetic energy below the skin, targeting sweat glands. The device heats and destroys the underarm sweat glands while cooling and protecting the top layers of skin.
The procedure is relatively painless, but it does require local anesthesia in the form of lidocaine injections. Most people can continue normal activities, return to work right after the procedure, and resume exercise within a couple of days.
