Dealing with hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by excessive sweating, can be extremely embarrassing and socially challenging. Whether it’s sweaty palms, underarms, or feet, the constant and often uncontrollable sweating can lead to self-consciousness and anxiety in social situations. It can impact daily activities, professional interactions, and personal relationships, making individuals feel isolated and uncomfortable.
At TKI, we provide non-surgical treatments to help people regain control and confidence in their daily lives.
How can TKI help me treat hyperhidrosis?
At TKI, we provide:
BOTOX® is an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis, as it works by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that stimulate sweat glands. When injected into the affected area, typically the underarms, BOTOX® inhibits the excessive sweating response. This minimally invasive procedure provides relief from sweating for several months, allowing individuals to regain confidence and comfort in social and professional settings. BOTOX® is a safe and proven method to manage excessive sweating, providing long-lasting results with minimal discomfort and downtime.
What causes hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is primarily caused by overactive sweat glands. It can be classified into two categories: primary (idiopathic), which has no identifiable underlying cause and is often hereditary, and secondary, which results from underlying medical conditions or triggers such as certain medications, hormonal changes, infections, or metabolic disorders. Primary cases usually affect specific areas like the underarms, palms, and feet, while secondary cases tend to involve more generalized sweating.
Can excessive sweating be related to underlying health conditions?
Excessive sweating can be related to underlying health conditions. Secondary hyperhidrosis, in particular, is often associated with medical issues or triggers. These may include hormonal imbalances, such as hyperthyroidism or menopause, infections, neurological disorders, diabetes, obesity, or medications. Identifying and addressing the underlying health condition is crucial in managing this condition effectively. For primary hyperhidrosis, where there’s no apparent underlying cause, genetics and family history often play a significant role. Seeking medical evaluation can help determine the cause of excessive sweating and guide appropriate treatment options.
