Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Heavy sweating – or Hyperhidrosis – is a very common yet distressing physical condition that greatly impacts the life of both genders, but the good news is that Hyperhidrosis Treatment offers some effective ways to treat it.

Also called perspiration, sweating is the body’s way of regulating its temperature when exposed to heat and may accompany or follow physical activity, episodes of anger, nervousness, anxiety, fear and elevated stress. Although sweating in normal amounts is an essential process, perspiring to such an extent that it turns into a bothersome daily problem that limits the sufferer’s activities, wardrobe and confidence is a disorder that requires medical treatment.

At Cosmetic Derma Medicine, we provide our patients with the most proven and advanced Hyperhidrosis Treatment options, achieving favorable outcomes in the fight against this common disorder which produces a lot of unhappiness for an estimated 3% of the population.

Hyperhidrosis is divided into two categories:

  • Primary Hyperhidrosis:  This type of heavy perspiration often begins in childhood or adolescence, when the person is exposed to anxiety and emotional stress and seems to run in families, often affecting multiple family members. Additionally, it occurs on specific areas of the body and is usually described as symmetric, meaning that it affects both the left and right side of the body.
  • Secondary Hyperhidrosis:  Unlike Primary Hyperhidrosis, this type of excessive sweating can be a sign of a serious underlying health condition, endocrine, metabolic or other health disorders. It starts in adulthood, usually after age 25, and it occurs on larger, generalized areas of the body.

Further, it is also classified into two types:

  • Focal Hyperhidrosis: This is the most common type of Hyperhidrosis. It is usually Primary and involves excessive sweating of the hands, feet and underarms.
  • Generalized Hyperhidrosis: Secondary Generalized Hyperhidrosis is much less common and affects the whole body.

First-line-of-defense approaches to controlling heavy sweating using Deodorants and Antiperspirants, often have no substantial results. Older treatments, such as Iontophoresis, Surgical removal of sweat glands and Thoracoscopic Sympathectomy have been abandoned, as they offered no real solution to Hyperhidrosis.

We are pleased to provide long-lasting and minimally invasive treatments that target the cause of heavy perspiration, simply and effectively.

  • Laser Smartlipo Hyperhidrosis Treatment:  The most advanced, fast and pain-free treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis, with permanent results. We use the high-performance ND-Yag laser system to selectively target axillary sweat glands. During axillary Hyperhidrosis Treatment, a high-intensity (1064nm) beam of light is absorbed by the subcutaneous tissue of the armpit, inactivating axillary sweat glands, while surrounding tissue remains unaffected.


  • Hyperhidrosis Treatment with Neurotoxin Injections:  The treatment involves the injection of tiny amounts of Botulinum Toxin, stopping excessive underarm, palm, soles and face sweating, while leaving the natural process of sweating unaffected. Neurotoxin effects for Hyperhidrosis Treatment can last 4-6 months.

Hyperhidrosis Treatment results, although impressive, are highly dependent on the Pathophysiology of Hyperhidrosis and treatment method. In any case, patients get complete relief from annoying excess perspiration, while leaving the natural process of sweating unaffected.

Prior to treatment, the areas are mapped with Minor’s Starch-Iodine Test. In order to evaluate the intensity of sweating, an iodine solution 5% is applied to the sufferer’s skin and allowed to air-dry. Once dry, the area is dusted with cornstarch powder. 5 minutes later, the presence of sweat will cause the mixture to turn dark blue-purple in color, allowing sweat production to be observed and evaluated.

The Laser Hyperhidrosis Treatment procedure is simple, painless and proven effective. Prior to treatment, the areas are mapped with Minor’s Starch-Iodine Test and outlined with a marker. After a local anesthetic is infused into the armpits, a microfiber penetrates the subcutaneous tissue and inactivates the axillary sweat glands without affecting surrounding tissues. Laser Smartlipo is approximately 85% effective in treating axillary Hyperhidrosis, while a double-session therapy may be enough to fully achieve Hyperhidrosis elimination.
The entire process is a doctor’s office-based procedure, exclusively performed by a Dermatologist.

Hyperhidrosis Treatment with Neurotoxin Injections is ideal for treating all types of heavy sweating, especially for Palmar and Plantar Hyperhidrosis, as well as Facial and Axillary sweating. Prior to treatment, the areas are mapped with Minor’s Starch-Iodine Test and outlined with a marker. Then, small amounts of Neurotoxin are injected intra-dermally into the affected areas. While it is approximately 90-95% effective in treating excessive sweating, Neurotoxin does not cure Hyperhidrosis. The effect lasts about 6 months, although there have been noted more prolonged effects after several applications. In Palmar Hyperhidrosis, the duration of action ranges from 5-8 months.
