Excess sweating can be a nuisance and cause embarrassment. Excess foot sweating can lead to a buildup of bacteria and cause smelly feet.
There are many options to treat Excessive sweating, but it does depend on the site :
• Antiperspirant: strong antiperspirant such as Driclor can be used to reduce sweating, but can cause skin irritation in some people.
• Iontophoresis – this involves placing the hands or feet in in an electrically charged water. It is considered first-line therapy for hand and feet sweating. It requires repeated treatment.
• Wrinkle relaxer injections used normally for facial wrinkles can be injected in areas such as the underarms/hands. The average duration of effect is 8 months.
• Surgery – a procedure is known as an ‘Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS)’ This is a keyhole procedure and needs to be performed under anaesthetic. The surgery involves ablating the nerve that supplies the sweat glands in the hands. It can, however, result in compensatory sweating elsewhere after the surgery is performed
At Jeunesse MedSpa® we offer wrinkle relaxer products to reduce excessive sweating.
