What is Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive, uncontrollable sweating in the armpits. This is natural during physical activity or when exposed to high temperatures, but those with hyperhidrosis often find themselves sweating through their clothes at inopportune or inappropriate times. Hyperhidrosis treatment can eliminate sweating under the arms to enhance a patient’s comfort and quality of life. We may recommend one of the following treatments for hyperhidrosis:
How Much Does Hyperhidrosis Treatment Cost?
If you elect to have hyperhidrosis treatment at Baldone Reina Dermatology, you will first have a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During this consultation, we will assess your current condition in order to determine the best approach for your treatment. In some cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. Once these variables are considered and your eligibility for insurance coverage is determined, we will be able to provide you with the cost of treatment and any associated fees.
How is Hyperhidrosis Treatment Performed with Botox®?
Botox® is known for its ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles. Botox® does this with botulinum toxin, which blocks nerve signals to the brain that are responsible for triggering muscle contractions. Similarly, the Botox® formula can block nerve signals in the armpits that trigger activity in the sweat glands. After injection into the armpits, patients can enjoy a significant reduction in underarm sweating for as long as a year. Plus, there is no downtime from this treatment, making it a convenient option for most patients.
Which Treatment is Best for Me?
There are multiple treatments available for managing hyperhidrosis. This is a good thing, as patients can receive the treatment that is best suited for them. During your consultation, we will assess your condition to determine the best treatment, or combination of treatments, for your hyperhidrosis. Our priority is to provide you with the most effective and convenient treatment possible.
