Tired of wearing only light-coloured clothes when your friends out there can wear whatever they want? But you feel like you have no other options. Clear sweat stains are easily visible over any dark-coloured clothes, especially on your back, under your breasts, on your neckline and yes, how does one forget? Of course under your pits. Summertime is a nightmare for you and you have just about accepted defeat.

What if we tell you that you can still win this fight? Yes. There are a lot of solutions that can easily solve your problem. You can easily opt for excessive sweating treatments. Though you might think you are all alone in this, that is completely false. The excessive sweating syndrome is much more common in people than you think. Of course, your excessive sweating problems can easily be solved here at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors. 

Let us look at what exactly is this condition. Hyperhidrosis is the syndrome where many people suffer from excessive sweating in several parts of their face and body like their underarms, hairline, under breasts, upper lips, inner thighs, forehead, hands, and feet. There are sweat glands present on the surface of your face and body, which are responsible for making you sweat. These glands secrete a fluid to flush out toxins from your body, and to keep your body temperature on balance. But too much sweating can hinder your daily lifestyle and make you feel overly self-conscious. 

Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors offer cosmetic remedies that can cure everything nowadays; including excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis. A lot of our patients are candidates for excessive sweating treatments, and after the treatment is completed, they are happy with the noticeable results. But before you commit to extensive therapies, minor forms of hyperhidrosis can be kept under control by making a few changes in your lifestyle choices. 

Here are some steps you can try at home to keep your sweating under control :

  • Shower every day: Taking a shower regularly helps to reduce the number of odour-producing bacteria on your body. Dry yourself well, especially the parts of your body that you think sweat excessively.
  • Use non-prescription antiperspirants: Antiperspirants can temporarily block your sweat secretion on the applied area. These products contain an aluminium-based compound which helps in sweat reduction. Use an antiperspirant every day after a shower to help with minor hyperhidrosis.
  • Wear suitable clothes: Wear light or neutral colours, and natural fabrics like cotton and wool. Avoid synthetic materials like polyester, crepe and others. Natural fabrics allow your skin to breathe, and stop you from feeling hot and stuffy, thus reducing your sweat.
  • Shoes: If you feel like your feet sweat excessively, try wearing open shoes like sandals or slippers. You can even go barefoot at home. Try to avoid stuffy shoes like sneakers as much as possible. Wash and dry your feet well. Shoes made of natural materials like leather can also help keep your sweat in check. If you are exercising, wear moisture-absorbing shoes.
  • Socks: Socks may be a part of your problem. The residue of sweat in your socks gives birth to odour-producing bacteria, which can be a big hindrance. You should change your socks often, and wash your dirty socks in a solution of detergent and anti-bacterial liquid. Cotton socks are better for your feet than synthetic socks.  
  • Try relaxation techniques: Sweating may also be the result of extreme nervousness or anxiety. If you are a nervous person by nature, you must consider several relaxation techniques such as meditation and yoga. These can help you learn to control the stress that triggers sweating.

If you feel like simple home remedies are not being able to keep your sweating under control, you need to pinpoint your hyperhidrosis to the parts of your body where you feel you sweat excessively. You may also want to consider if there are any special conditions under which you sweat more than others. You should consult our experts at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors, in Melbourne to get a proper diagnosis of your condition. After determining your situation, our Cosmetic doctors will consult you on the best possible excessive sweating treatment options available for your condition.

Based on your needs, our doctors may suggest treatments such as :

  • Minor Hyperhidrosis: Minor Hyperhidrosis can be treated with small changes in your lifestyle such as food habits, shower routines, using antiperspirants and wearing light cotton clothes made of breathable fabric.
  • More serious Hyperhidrosis: Your doctor may prescribe you oral medications to treat your excessive sweat problems better. These may include Anticholinergic drugs, beta-blockers and even antidepressants in some cases if the cause for hyperhidrosis is determined to be Psychological or emotional stress.
  • Extreme Hyperhidrosis: Extreme forms of sweating may have to be treated through more thorough cosmetic treatments like Iontophoresis, Microwave Therapy or Botox Injections. Through these methods, the nerves of your sweat glands can be disabled.

 

If none of these excessive sweating treatments works for you, consider a sympathectomy surgery to remove your sweat glands from the affected areas. This is a permanent solution, but in the long run, this might affect your health in a negative way as sweat glands are still needed by your body to keep it cool and flush out toxins.

Excessive sweating treatments usually begin to work 3 – 6 days after the session of the therapy. Two weeks after therapy, there is a complete reduction in your sweating. Other upsides to these therapies are that they pose minimal downtime, and almost all activities of normal life can be resumed from the day after. People are advised to stay in a cool atmosphere generally after this. 

Depending on your diagnosis, you may have to go through 1 year of these treatments for complete results. At Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors, here in Melbourne, we use high-grade Botox injections to treat Hyperhidrosis. Candidates are mostly satisfied with the results. Now, you can get rid of your sweat stains after getting this excessive sweating treatment as well.

These injections are also pain-free, causing just some mild discomfort for a few hours after the treatment. Non-surgical treatment is also relatively much safer and risk-free than surgical alternatives; which require incisions to be made on the targeted areas.  

We cater individually to your concerns here at our expert clinic, Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors as we know that every skin, everybody and every person is unique with individual needs. Contact us today to know more about the solutions to all your cosmetic problems.
