Hyperhidrosis is a condition which makes an individual sweat more than needed, and seemingly for no reason. The body contains 2.5 million sweat glands, a number of which ordinarily activate to cool the body down or when a person feels fear. Individuals with hyperhidrosis tend to sweat profusely due to neither stimulus. This excess sweating can make life needlessly uncomfortable and sometimes even exasperating. Fortunately, we at the office of Sharon Giese, MD offer internal ultrasound to combat hyperactive sweat glands. We invite you to learn more about this treatment and how it may be able to help you.
How Can an Ultrasound Reduce Sweating?
Unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic, which offers only temporary relief from excess perspiration, and liposuction, which can cause scarring, internal ultrasound provides a safe and effective solution for those struggling with hyperhidrosis. It is performed as a minimally invasive, one-time procedure that lasts for about an hour and requires very little downtime. Local anesthesia is administered for the duration, and the patient can resume normal activities after about one or two days. The results are swift and dramatic, with 50-60% of people experiencing a 75% reduction of perspiration in the treated areas. By stemming your excess sweat, you can regain a great deal of confidence in the process.
