Men and women in Marysville ask about treatments for hyperhidrosis
There are several ways excessive sweating can affect men and women. Constant sweating is known as hyperhidrosis, which can be embarrassing and make it difficult to interact socially. Hands can be so sweaty that holding a pen or shaking hands can be a struggle. Clothes can be ruined by underarm sweat stains. The North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics team understands the woes of patients in Marysville and the surrounding areas who suffer from hyperhidrosis. We provide gentle care and can tailor treatments to meet individual needs.
Stronger antiperspirants can be prescribed when over-the-counter solutions prove ineffective. Antiperspirants form a plug that blocks perspiration, which makes them effective in treating hyperhidrosis. They can be applied to the underarms, as well as other areas of the body, including the hands and feet. It is important to follow our instructions to ensure optimal results.
We also can prescribe oral medications to reduce sweating. Another treatment we offer is Botox, one of the most popular treatments in dermatology used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. In addition to its ability to restore youthful beauty, the FDA has approved Botox for treating underarm sweating. Results can last several months, however, touch-up sessions are recommended for maintaining optimal results.
In addition to highlighting our treatments, we are happy to educate patients about methods for reducing sweating. Our tips include:
- Avoid wearing heavy clothes that trap sweat. Wear light, breathable fabrics such as cotton. Socks made of polypro or merino wool wick moisture away from your feet. Bring a change of clothes to wear after exercising or going outdoors.
- Use antibacterial soap every day before applying antiperspirant.
- Limit your intake of spicy food, alcohol, and caffeine in drinks such as coffee and tea that can make you sweat.
