If you wake with night sweats or find yourself dripping sweat even when you are not engaged in physical activity, you may have excess perspiration. The condition known as hyperhidrosis, commonly affects men. At ARC Plastic Surgery we strive to deliver the best hyperhidrosis treatments Miami has to offer. When your prescription antiperspirant isn’t cutting it, it may be time to look into other solutions.
At ARC Plastic Surgery in Miami, we understand how excess sweating can take a toll on your everyday life. To effectively reduce perspiration, we use Morpheus8 microneedling or Botox to stop clammy hands, sweaty feet, and wet underarms. Our Miami hyperhidrosis treatments are long-lasting and highly effective solutions for men plagued by profuse sweating.
Sweating is a necessary body function. It keeps your body cool and prevents overheating during warm temperatures and exercise. However, some men experience excessive sweating at inappropriate times. They may drip sweat even while resting or when the body does not need to be cooled down. Excessive sweating, medically known as hyperhidrosis, is a condition that causes too much sweat regardless of your activity level.
There are two types of hyperhidrosis. Primary focal hyperhidrosis can affect one or more areas of the body and often begins in early adolescence. The exact cause is unknown and may be hereditary. Secondary hyperhidrosis, or generalized sweating, is usually the result of medication side effects or underlying health conditions.
Possible Causes of Secondary Hyperhidrosis:
ARC Plastic Surgery can reduce perspiration with minimally invasive treatments such as Botox injections and Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling.
Botox for Male Sweat Reduction
Botulinum toxin (Botox) can lessen sweating by blocking the nerve signals that trigger sweat gland activation. Most patients enjoy drier underarms, feet, scalp, or hands for six to 12 months before needing another Botox hyperhidrosis treatment.
Morpheus8 Microneedling for Male Sweat Reduction
Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive treatment that combines microneedling, which creates tiny, grid-like channels in the skin to allow radiofrequency heat energy to reach the sweat glands. The heat desensitizes the sweat glands to permanently reduce perspiration in areas such as the hands, underarms, and feet.
Sweating palms and armpit stains lead some individuals to shy away from social interactions. It can also limit the types of clothing they can wear. In less severe cases, it is simply an embarrassing and annoying problem. However, some men have difficulty performing everyday tasks such as turning a doorknob, steering wheel, or buttoning their shirts since their hands are sweating profusely. When excess perspiration affects the feet, it can cause foul-smelling bacteria in shoes and fungal conditions such as athlete's foot. Our Miami hyperhidrosis treatments for men can eliminate these concerns to enhance your comfort, confidence, and quality of life.
Key Advantages to Hyperhidrosis Treatments
You may be a candidate for sweat reduction treatments if you have found prescription antiperspirants ineffective. Patients should be over age 18 to receive hyperhidrosis treatments such as Botox or microneedling. The ideal candidate does not smoke, is in reasonably good health, and has realistic expectations.
Concerns Addressed with Hyperhidrosis Treatments
When you sit down to discuss your concerns with our male sweat specialist, they will listen carefully and ask questions about health and lifestyle factors that may contribute to your excess sweating. A physical exam, blood or urine test, or iodine-starch sweat test can diagnose hyperhidrosis. However, it may be evident that you have the condition without a formal diagnosis. If you are a candidate for Botox or microneedling for hyperhidrosis, your treatment can begin the same day in most cases.
Male perspiration treatments are performed on an outpatient basis with no need for general anesthesia.
Botox Hyperhidrosis Procedure
Botox injections cause little-to-no discomfort. Your provider may apply ice or anesthetic cream before your treatment. They will inject Botox into the areas where you sweat most. The process only takes a few minutes.
Morpheus8 Hyperhidrosis Procedure
Before Morpheus8, we will numb the area with local anesthetic for enhanced comfort. Next, the device pricks the skin with micro-fine needles combined with radiofrequency energy to desensitize the sweat glands. Discomfort is minimized by using a numbing agent.
The recovery process after hyperhidrosis treatment is relatively easy. You may have pinpoint bleeding, swelling, mild bruising, or sensitivity post-treatment. These effects should subside quickly. There is no downtime. You can resume most daily activities immediately.
Botox Hyperhidrosis Treatment Results
It takes approximately two to four weeks for Botox to reduce perspiration at the treatment site. The results typically last six to eight months. Come to our office for a maintenance treatment once the effects wear off.
Morpheus8 Hyperhidrosis Treatment Results
Morpheus8 for hyperhidrosis treatment is a permanent way to reduce sweating. Most patients notice a dramatic decrease in perspiration within two to three months after completing their treatment regimen. Up to six treatment sessions may be recommended for best effects.
