Treatments for excessive sweating

Many people in the area of Williamsville, NY who deal with excessive sweating, or “hyperhidrosis,” may not realize that it is a medical condition that can be treated with multiple solutions. Dr. Jack Bertolino and his associates are excited to educate patients on their options to keep them from dealing with perspiration that can be damaging to clothes—and self-esteem! This embarrassing condition can be treated using several different modalities at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics.

Understanding hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that can be extremely embarrassing for patients. While it is perfectly normal to sweat in high temperatures and during exercise, other patients may deal with sweating regardless of what they are doing and how warm it is. This sweating affects 2-3% of the general population and can occur:

  • In the underarms
  • On the palms
  • On the soles of the feet

What can be done about hyperhidrosis?

Patients who struggle with hyperhidrosis on a regular basis are often curious to learn about the treatment options available to them. Below are just a few of the more common treatments used at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics may suggest for individuals in the practice:

  • Topical products. There are many over-the-counter and prescription strength antiperspirants that are available to patients to choose from to reduce sweating. Many of these work for patients with mild hyperhidrosis and are used each day to control perspiration.
  • Injections. Some patients choose to use Botox or Dysport injections. These neuromodulators can significantly reduce sweating under the arms for several months before reinjection is needed. This treatment needs to be done regularly to maintain results.
  • Vaser treatment. We also offer a permanent solution to hyperhidrosis with Vaser treatment. The sweat glands are destroyed and then liposuctioned out. Minimal pain is experienced and some patients choose to have oral sedation during their procedure.
