Hyperhidrosis, more commonly known as excessive sweating, can be a nuisance. It is a medical condition that can affect both the physical and emotional/psychological well being.Lucky for us, excessive sweating can be treated! We treat excessive sweating in a number of ways here at Pretty Faces Atlanta.
TREAT HYPERHIDROSIS WITH BOTOX®
BOTOX® has been well studied and documented to be effective in axillary excessive sweating (armpits) and excessive sweating of other parts of the body (hairline, palms, soles, buttocks etc.)
1 treatment, every 9-12 months, is adequate for Botox®.
FRACTIONAL RF MICRONEEDLING FOR HYPERHIDROSIS
Recently there have been studies that have found Fractional RF (Radio frequency) Microneedling is an effective alternative to treat excessive sweating. Other names for this popular treatment include Fractional RF CIT/Radio Frequency Collagen Induction Therapy, and Fractional RF Dermaroller.
In addition to treatment for hyperhidrosis, we utilize this procedure for patients with hidradenitis suppurativa occurring in the armpit region (excessive glandular growth and secretion).
Fractional RF Microneedling for hyperhidrosis can be applied to pretty much any part of the body, but best results are seen when used for armpits, hairline, palms, soles
For Fractional RF Microneedling, usually 6 sessions are recommended, with each session requiring about 20-30 minutes of treatment time (per area). Treatments are scheduled at 3-week intervals.
Patients report little to no down time, and with proper anesthesia, both Botox® and Fractional RF Microneedling are virtually pain free.
