Hyperhidrosis

Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) is an embarrassing yet common condition that we treat in dermatology. It's a typically harmless condition with many treatment options. We usually start with a trial of a prescription topical solution that is applied at night, which can really help some patients. For those with more resistant sweating, treatment with neuromodulators such as Botox can be used. This is successful in most cases, with results lasting 6 months to one year. Iontophoresis is another effective at-home treatment option. Make an appointment to learn what the best treatment is for you.
