Vibrant colors light the sky in light of spring’s arrival. As nature flaunts a new look, so too do clothing stores, updating hangers and shelves with the seasons latest trends. For people who suffer from excessive sweating however, clothing choices seem limited.

People who struggle with excessive sweating of the armpits, for example, often gravitate to darker colored clothing, jackets, and even double shirts in hopes of hiding sweaty armpits. While popular deodorants promise a solution to hyperhidrosis, patients often find they need a stronger solution. If you struggle with hyperhidrosis, talk to our NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine about hyperhidrosis treatment in New York

Hyperhidrosis affects over 8 million people in the United States alone. The causes of hyperhidrosis vary and may include neurologic, metabolic, or other systematic diseases, anxiety, hyperthyroidism, and menopause.   

At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, offers BOTOX in Manhattan to temporarily stop and control sweating.  BOTOX, commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, works to stop excessive sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals between the nerves and sweat glands. Excessive sweating will significantly reduce four weeks following treatment. Patients should schedule approximately one to two BOTOX injections per year in order to maintain results. 

While one of the most common areas of hyperhidrosis is the underarm, many people experience excessive sweating of the forehead, palms, and feet.  Both men and women benefit from treatment of excessive sweating. Sometimes men shy away from hyperhidrosis treatment in New York, as sweating is commonly associated with masculinity. However, it is perfectly normal and not uncommon for men to take control of excessive sweating.

Take control of your hyperhidrosis and enjoy being able to wear your new outfit without the worry of limited arm movement, stains, or embarrassing sweat marks.
