What is Excessive Sweating?

Excessive sweating, medically known as hyperhidrosis, is a condition that results in a lot of sweating whether or not a trigger is present. For example, someone may sweat excessively even though the temperature is cool and they are not overheating. Excessive sweating is not only uncomfortable, it can also be embarrassing and limit the type of clothing you choose to wear.

How to Reduce Excessive Sweating Without Surgery

The Allura Skin, Laser & Wellness Clinic locations in Fort Collins and Loveland offer FDA-approved Botox® for the reduction of excessive sweating. Botox is used to stop overactive sweat glands that produce too much sweat by blocking the nerve signals for sweating. Studies report that patients who are treated with Botox in the armpits (axilla) noticed a reduction of sweating a few days post treatment. Dryness usually lasts anywhere from four to twelve months. This treatment can change your life! Consider Botox treatments for excessive sweating and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have or to schedule a free consultation.

What Causes Excessive Sweating?

Excessive sweating may be a primary or secondary condition. Primary hyperhidrosis means that you excessively sweat and have no other underlying medical conditions causing the sweating. In this case, it is likely that hyperhidrosis runs in your family.

With secondary hyperhidrosis, the excessive sweating is a side effect of another underlying medical condition. Medical conditions that can result in secondary hyperhidrosis include: hyperthyroidism, menopause, cancer, spinal cord injuries, and more.

In either case, you can treat hyperhidrosis and live a life free of excessive sweating.
