Excessive Sweating Treatments in Westchester, New York
Sweating is a natural part of life. It can help to regulate your body temperature and cool you down when you’re hot. However, for many men and women, excessive sweating may be a cause for concern or embarrassment. Constantly sweaty armpits can dictate what you wear, where you go, and what you do. Whether it’s a lifelong condition or you’ve started to experience excessive perspiration after a major change like pregnancy or menopause, Dr. Karlinsky can help you manage increased sweat production safely and quickly.
What is hyperhidrosis treatment?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that brings about inordinate amounts of sweat in the armpits, hands, palms, feet, and face. This condition can be safely treated in the comfort and privacy of our Westchester, New York facility. The same botulinum toxin that makes Botox® and Dysport® so powerful on wrinkles is what makes for an effective way to curb excessive sweating in adults.
Why choose hyperhidrosis treatments?
You’ve tried all the antiperspirants and topical approaches out there, but you still have trouble controlling the excessive sweating. You may have experienced some fleeting results, but nothing that really worked for long. Now you can treat hyperhidrosis effectively for months at a time with Botox or Dysport injections. This minimally invasive treatment will allow you to sweat significantly less for three to five months after each treatment. While individual outcomes may vary, you’ll start to notice the sweat-reducing effects just a few days after your visit.
How are hyperhidrosis treatments performed?
After careful consultation with Dr. Karlinsky, either Botox or Dysport will be injected into the skin to treat the symptoms of severe sweating. There is usually no preparation necessary and each session lasts only about 15 to 30 minutes. You can be in, out, and back to your life in no time at all. Side effects are rare but could include infection, swelling, and bruising. It’s normal to see some redness and tenderness after the procedure, but your skin usually returns to its normal state quickly. You and Dr. Karlinsky can schedule a follow-up maintenance plan for further injections to keep your heightened perspiration at bay.
