What is hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis, also known as polyhidrosis or sudorrhea, is a condition characterized by excessive sweating. The sweating can affect just one specific area or the whole body.
The excessive sweating associated with hyperhidrosis is normally most active in the hands, feet, armpits, and the groin because of their relatively high concentration of sweat glands.
Focal hyperhidrosis: When the excessive sweating is localized. For example, palmoplantar hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating of the palms and soles.
Generalized hyperhidrosis: Excessive sweating affects the entire body.
Hyperhidrosis plagues many women. Most women are uncomfortable speaking to anyone about this problem. We have a solution for this condition.
Hyperhidrosis is excessive underarm sweating that is not helped by deodorants, powders, or other topical treatments. By using BOTOX® in the underarms every three months, the sweating is significantly decreased. Dr. Polcino will provide a BOTOX consultation to see if this is the right option for you.
BOTOX® is administered with a tiny needle in areas under the arm. It is not painful and is performed by Dr. Polcino in our office. It is important to remember that this procedure is covered by most insurance plans. Read more about BOTOX.
