Treatment of Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)

Do not let avoidable excessive sweating affect your life negatively. Sweating, a physiological mechanism that keeps the body temperature constant is an extremely natural state for some people, while some others experience it badly to the same extent. Excessive sweating in the armpits, hands, feet and face may cause psychological problems and lack of self-confidence, by adversely affecting the personal and social lives of people. Excessive sweating, an annoying problem for both the individual and people around him/her, is one of the most common problems encountered in hot summer days.

The "Excessive Sweating" problem suffered by one out of every 100 people is seen in every season of the year, and its severity varies from person to person. The excessive sweating problem, whether local or general, creates a big problem in the life of a person who suffers from it. Sweat does not smell in an excessive sweating problem; however, when it remains on the skin for a long time, it meets with bacteria and causes the emergence of bad odors.

What kinds of applications are made as a treatment?
Certain techniques intended for the treatment of excessive sweating that negatively affect daily life, has begun to be used quite commonly. The most preferred methods are MiraDry technology and Botox procedures.

Treatment of Hyperhidrosis with Botox Injection
For years, Botox applications have been the most preferred method for the elimination of excessive sweating. Botox injection that we use with intent to temporarily paralyze the facial expression muscles can also temporarily block the functions of the sweat glands. Botox injection appears as one of the methods developed for the treatment of excessive sweating. With the Botox treatment, preferred especially for underarm sweating, the simulation effects causing sweating in that region are blocked and the nerves are paralyzed for a period of 6 months. We can only apply it to the underarm region (the axillary cavity). We do not prefer it for any other regions. In the iontophoresis treatment performed by physical therapists in 20-to 30-minute sessions, the sweating area is placed into a container that contains a metal plate, and then a low-voltage current is applied.
