What is Hyperhidrosis?
Excessive sweating, known as “hyperhidrosis,” affects approximately 2% to 3% of people in the United States. The perspiration most often occurs on the feet, hands, and underarms, but other areas may include the chest, genital area, and back. In addition to the emotional effects of hyperhidrosis, the constant moisture of sweat can make day-to-day tasks difficult, such as the ability to hold a pen or to grip a steering wheel.

What Can I Expect from Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
We offer two treatments for hyperhidrosis.
Botox® is an injectable treatment that is most commonly known for helping with wrinkles, but it is also approved by the FDA to alleviate excessive perspiration. The product is injected into the treatment area where it works to prevent specific chemicals from being released by the body. These chemicals are responsible for triggering sweat glands.
MiraDry® is a non-invasive treatment for hyperhidrosis. It works by destroying odor and sweat glands with the innovative miraWave™ energy.
Am I a Good Candidate for Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
The symptoms of hyperhidrosis are:
- Clammy palms or soles of the feet
- Sweating that soaks your clothing
- Frequent episodes of excessive sweating
If you experience any of these symptoms, you may be a good candidate for hyperhidrosis treatment, and we encourage you to schedule a consultation at our office.
How Much Does Hyperhidrosis Treatment Cost?
Hyperhidrosis does not pose a medical risk and treatment is considered elective. During your consultation, Dr. Newall helps you decide which hyperhidrosis treatment is best for you. We can then provide pricing for the procedure of your choice. If you would like to make monthly payments for the services, we offer financing options for qualified patients.
Hyperhidrosis is much more than occasional sweating in social situations. The condition causes excessive perspiration that is embarrassing and costly.
