What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis can stem from genetics, thyroid issues or stress and is difficult to treat without dermatological assistance. You can read more about this condition on Mayo Clinic’s website. Clinical strength antiperspirants and prescribed medications may slightly restrict perspiration, but they have negative side effects such as rashes, redness, and itchiness. Most patients prefer long term solutions that take care of the problem once and for all.
Treating your Hyperhidrosis
Drs. Gary and Kristina Goldenberg meet with each patient to determine the best treatment option based on their individual concerns and goals. They will often recommend using Botox to temporarily disable sweat glands. This is a great option for people who look for an affordable treatment that can be done in March to June and usually last till the end of the summer season. Botox treatments are delivered by Drs. Goldenberg personally via a series of gentle injections into the target area. This treatment is virtually painless and can be accomplished in just 10-20 minutes. You can resume daily activities immediately after. Unlike other practices, only board-certified dermatologists will inject Botox to effectively stop sweating.
