Best Cleveland Excessive Sweating Treatment | Plastic Surgeon

Treatment for Excessive Sweating in Cleveland, Ohio

Excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis, can occur almost anywhere on the body, but excessive sweating is often localized to the hands or face (localized hyperhidrosis). Excessive sweating might be caused by a minor malfunction in the nervous system, and appears to be genetic. Regardless of the cause, excessive sweating can make you self-conscious and uncomfortable. The condition can impact the color and style of clothes you wear and influence the success of your career.

Normally, your nervous system activates sweat glands when your body temperature rises, creating an automatic cooling effect. In people with hyperhidrosis, however, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive.

Is there any permanent fix for excessive sweating?

Localized hyperhidrosis is the more common variety and specifically affects the palms, armpits, and face. It usually begins in adolescence, which makes onset sometimes hard to pinpoint, given the hormonal and body changes taking place in puberty

Botox injections have shown evidence of effectiveness in patients with chronic, excessive sweating. Botox injections block nerve signals and stop the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. As the nerves regenerate, retreatment is needed, typically in four to six months. Over time, patients may go longer between treatments.

  • Dr Ponsky’s staff are full of energy and very friendly. They are extremely personable, and worked to ensure that I felt comfortable and had everything I needed (down to a blanket during the procedure). Dr Ponsky is thorough, sweet, and gentle in her explanations. She made sure to explain the answers to each of my questions and I never felt rushed/forced to make a decision. I love the fact that we could do the entire procedure under local anesthesia.
