Many choices for hyperhidrosis treatment

+2

Many dermatologists treat hyperhidrosis. If medical treatment such as topicals and oral medications are not successful, drionic devices utilizing electrolysis or BOTOX can be employed. If these fail, surgery is another approach.

Either dermatologists or plastic surgeons are trained to administer Botox for hyperhidrosis.

Doctor for hyperhidrosis

I would stick with Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologist.  In either case, I would do the research to see if they address this concern, particularly if you are doing any other area than the armpit.  I would also look for providers that offer a multitude of options such as prescription meds, Botox, Dysport, miraDry and surgery.  In our office, we have both a Plastic Surgeon and a Dermatologist and together we offer a comprehensive set of solutions for hyperhidrosis.

dermatologists are the skin experts and most will properly diagnose the condition and treat it appropriately...most people with so-called primary hyperhidrosis (persistent, annoying, long lasting sweating unrelated to medical disease like an overactive thyroid gland or diabetes) can easily be treated by botox infections about once or twice a year...and when the sweating is limited to the underarm area, some of the topical medicines might be of some benefit and may be worth a try before resorting to botox...but botox for sweating is so nifty and works so well and frees you from worry and the possibility of side effects from pills that's its often the best shot...no pun intended...

Seek someone who performs or offers more than one treatment for hyperhidrosis. We offer A-Z services, i.e. everything from medical therapy (hoemopathic, oral prescription, topical prescrition), iontophoresis, Botox to suction curettage to miraDry to sympathectomy - seek someone who offers something other than Botox so that they can give you informed consent ...  Just offering one treatment like Botox is not good enough.

Dermatologists usually treat hyperhidrosis.  Aluminum chloride anti-perspirants, iontophoresis, glycopyrrolate orally or topically, surgery to clip the nerves that cause the sweating, and Botox Therapeutic injections are all possible treatments for hyperhidrosis.
