do i have hyperhidrosis?
No one likes being excessively sweaty. In fact, many of our patients with hyperhidrosis say that the condition hinders their lifestyle, embarrasses them, and requires a lot of time to manage their hygiene. To determine whether RF microneedling is right for you, please review the list below and then call us to schedule an appointment. Hyperhidrosis symptoms include:
- Changing your clothes multiple times a day because of sweat
- Replacing clothes often because of discoloration or sweat rings
- Trying various types of antiperspirants or deodorants that provide no relief
- Feeling embarrassed by excess sweating
How do you stop hyperhidrosis?
When preparing for your appointment, do not wear lotion or deodorant. Also, to avoid irritating your skin, you should avoid shaving or a couple of days before your treatment. One of our expert dermatologists will complete the procedure in a private treatment room. To start with, we'll clean your skin and then numb it with a local anesthetic. Next, we'll have you relax in a treatment chair so that we can easily access your underarm. Using a process called thermolysis, the device applies high-intensity heat to treat excessive sweat glands. The amount and frequency of the appointments required vary from patient to patient.
what to expect after hyperhidrosis treatment
Following your procedure, your underarms may appear inflamed and red or feel tender. Additionally, it’s very common to experience mild bleeding from microneedling. Once your body begins to heal, you should see a decrease in the amount you sweat. For at least six hours following your treatment, we highly recommend not washing or applying creams or deodorant to your underarms. You should also avoid swimming, using the sauna, and exercising for a day. Please call our office if you have any questions or concerns after your appointment.
