Sweating

Our team at Face Forward Medical Aesthetics in Lexington, MA, can create a personalized excessive sweating treatment that meets your goals and improves your overall quality of life.

What is Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)?

Hyperhidrosis affects 3% of the general population. With this condition, sweating occurs disproportionately to the outside temperature and does not correspond to the level of physical activity or anxiety you are currently experiencing. 

Excessive sweating can affect certain areas or the entire body. Underarms, palms, soles, and the face are the most commonly affected regions. The condition occurs when the nerves responsible for triggering sweat glands become overactive. In some patients, the condition is hereditary.

Solutions for Excessive Sweating

BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin

Neuromodulators such as BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin work by temporarily blocking the chemical signals that tell the sweat glands to overproduce moisture. Once the sweat glands have been blocked, the patient enjoys peace of mind and dry clothes. In some studies, injections with BOTOX have been shown to reduce underarm sweating by up to 87%, with results lasting 4-12 months. 

BOTOX and other neuromodulators are injected painlessly in a grid pattern with an ultra-fine needle. An ice pack can be used if needed to minimize discomfort. Patients return to their normal activities directly after their sessions.

RF Microneedling

While RF microneedling is commonly used to combat the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and volume loss, it can also be useful in treating hyperhidrosis by destroying the sweat glands. The treatment targets both the odor-producing glands (apocrine) and the moisture-producing glands (eccrine).

FDA-approved and gentle, RF microneedling takes just 20 minutes to perform. The armpits are numbed and readied to receive the radiofrequency energy. The sweat glands are targeted and disabled, leading to a drier, more manageable patient experience. There is no downtime after RF microneedling. Patients can return right away to their normal schedules. Results are typically long-lasting and sustainable over time.
