What Can I Do About Excessive Sweating?

Is excessive sweating causing you to feel insecure in social settings? You aren’t the only one. Over 15 million Americans suffer from excessive sweating. Unfortunately, no deodorants or powders can keep this condition under control. 

Excessive sweating, or primary hyperhidrosis, doesn’t have a known cause. It occurs in people who have overactive sweat glands. While this condition isn’t life-threatening, it can significantly lower your quality of life and increase your risk of bacterial infections. 

Research shows that patients with primary hyperhidrosis are more likely to suffer from anxiety and avoid social settings. People with primary hyperhidrosis report that the condition has a significant impact on what they wear, what hobbies they engage in, and how they plan their days. Many of them exhibit higher levels of anxiety due to the constant fear of sweating in public. 

At the Anti-Aging Institute, we want to improve your quality of life and make you feel confident in your skin. To help you out, we’re sharing the latest in the treatment of excessive sweating: PrecisionTx®, a minimally invasive treatment that gets rid of overactive sweat glands for good. 

How PrecisionTx treats excessive sweating 

PrecisionTx is a minimally invasive procedure that switches off your sweat glands via laser ablation.

According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society, patients have a 78% reduction in perspiration after sweat gland ablation. Because sweat glands don’t regenerate, the procedure offers permanent results.

You might be wondering whether it’s dangerous to reduce sweating in the underarm area. Worry no more: Because you have sweat glands all over your body, a reduction in underarm sweat won’t impair your body’s ability to control body temperature. 

Why PrecisionTx is superior to other treatments 

The biggest advantage of this minimally invasive laser procedure, of course, is the permanent results. The second-biggest advantage is the safe and painless recovery process.

The procedure lasts about an hour, and it’s not painful because local anesthesia is used to numb the treated area. Dr. Bachal makes a small incision in your skin to allow the laser to reach the sweat glands underneath and ablate them. 

However, the incision is so small that stitches are unnecessary and scarring is minimal. Most patients can return to their everyday activities right after the treatment. 

There are no side effects, but some people may experience soreness that subsides in a matter of days.

Don’t allow excessive sweating to ruin your confidence 

At the Anti-Aging Institute, we want our patients in Lexington, Kentucky, to feel good in their skin. 

Excessive sweating can carry a number of stigmas. Many hyperhidrosis sufferers carry several shirts with them everywhere they go and plan their days around their sweating issue, while many others give up on exercising in public or wearing clothing that may expose their sweat stains.

However, you can put all of this stress behind you. Call the practice, send us a message on our website, or book online to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bacha and find out if you’re a good fit for PrecisionTx.
