Eliminate Excessive Sweating and Gain Control of Your Life
While excessive sweating is a common ailment, it is not one that you have to deal with on a daily basis. With the help of one of our board-certified dermatologists in Calabasas, we can get your sweating under control.
Treatment options for excessive sweating
While not as effective for everyone, prescription strength topical medications may help curb your sweating. Occasionally, a compounded formulation may be helpful, and this can be complemented by an oral medication as well, to improve efficacy.
Botox for excessive sweating
With Botox, a small needle is placed near the area where sweating occurs. Botox injections will target the sweat glands and the nerve signals that trigger the sweat glands. Botox is a very effective solution for this troubling, yet very common, condition.
This treatment is considered temporary and patients should expect 90% or more reduction in sweating for anywhere from three to sixteen months. To ease any discomfort, patients may request ice be applied to the area before injections are given, and we routinely use topical anesthetics to make it very tolerable.
SmartLipo for excessive sweating
SmartLipo is another tool used to stop excessive sweating. During this procedure, small incisions are made in the skin folds of the armpit. Once the incisions are made, an anesthetic solution is injected into the area. A laser is then placed over the area killing the sweat glands. Results can be permanent.
