At SkinSmart Dermatology, we understand how some dermatological conditions can be embarrassing. Rosacea and acne are two skin problems that can cause patients to feel self-conscious. However, patients in the Sarasota, FL area who are dealing with excessive sweating, or “hyperhidrosis,” also find themselves in situations where they are embarrassed by their condition. Hyperhidrosis can cause substantial sweating in the underarms, regardless of how calm they are or the temperature of the space around them. This can lead to pit stains that can damage clothing—and confidence.
What can be done about hyperhidrosis?
The answer to this varies depending on the severity of the condition. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that can be mild or severe. Mild hyperhidrosis can be addressed with specialized antiperspirants that are available either over-the-counter or with a doctor’s prescription. Drs. Elizabeth Callahan and William Adams work directly with patients to determine the most conservative option for them. If these products do not work, another option is Botox injections.
Botox is formulated from botulinum toxin type A. It is often thought of for its anti-aging benefits. However, it can also be injected into the underarms and reduce the amount of sweating the occurs. This makes it a wonderful solution for patients with hyperhidrosis.
How long does Botox work?
Botox is not a permanent solution, though it does offer several months of less sweating and embarrassment. With routine injections, patients can take charge over their hyperhidrosis and feel more confident in their own skin! No more hiding their clothing or wearing all black to avoid staining, allowing patients an all new lease on life!
