Dermatology specialists recommend first testing less invasive solutions. If these do not work then the surgical methods must be passed. Just as long-term oral medication as anticholinergics, beta blockers and clonidine hydrochloride, as they produce side effects.

Antiperspirants to stop sweating is the first solution recommended by experts. They do not require a prescription and also count on the double deodorant function to reduce the odor. Another solution is Botox injections, in which small amounts of the botulinum toxin are injected just under the skin of the armpits. This solution eliminates hyperhidrosis temporarily (between 7 and 16 months), as it directly treats the sweat glands that are responsible for excessive perspiration. After this time the symptoms return progressively and a follow-up dermatologist with new injections is required.


Hyperhidrosis is a pathology that causes excessive sweating


Some clinics implement a new technique that involves using a high-tech radio frequency. During the treatment a disposable head is used that contains 25 micro-needles that cross the skin in variable depths. Its thermal action causes glandular destruction and achieving a decrease in sweating. The treatment lasts 15 minutes, is painless and the patient can continue immediately with their daily activity. It is performed once a month for 4 or 6 months, time in which a reduction of 70% of the sweating is calculated.
