Reduce the impact of excessive sweating at Luna Dermatology

At Luna Dermatology, we understand the impact that excessive sweating (aka “hyperhidrosis”) can have on your daily life. Our expert dermatology team is here to provide you with effective treatment options to help you regain your confidence and comfort, whether you’ve had extra sweat for years, or if it’s a relatively new occurrence. Ultimately, with the use of Xeomin, Dysport, Botox or other injectables, we can effectively manage hyperhidrosis for a drier look and feel. We treat excessive sweating across the body, including key areas such as:

  • Underarms
  • Face
  • Hands
  • Feet 
  • And more!

Understanding Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by heavy sweating beyond what is necessary to regulate body temperature. It affects millions of Americans and can occur in specific areas such as the palms, soles of the feet, underarms, and face. While not considered dangerous, this condition can significantly impact one’s quality of life, leading to embarrassment, social anxiety, and decreased self-esteem.

The causes of hyperhidrosis can vary. Primary hyperhidrosis is thought to be caused by an overactive nervous system, leading to excessive sweating even in the absence of triggers such as heat or physical activity. Secondary hyperhidrosis, on the other hand, is often a symptom of an underlying medical condition, such as hormonal imbalances, thyroid problems, or diabetes.

Injectables for Hyperhidrosis

  • FDA Approved
  • Long Lasting
  • Safe, In-Office Treatment
  • No Downtime

One of the most effective treatments for hyperhidrosis is the use of injectables. These neuromodulators work by blocking the chemical signals that stimulate sweat glands, thereby reducing sweat in the treated areas. It is a safe and minimally invasive procedure performed right here in our offices. Even better, these treatments provide long-lasting relief from excessive sweating. The treatment is FDA approved specifically for hyperhidrosis and is a particularly good option for those who have tried over the counter or prescription antiperspirants without relief.  

During the treatment, our medical providers will carefully administer small injections to the affected areas, targeting the sweat glands. The procedure is relatively quick and requires no downtime; allowing you to resume your regular activities immediately.

 For your convenience, we offer injections for excessive sweating in both our New Paltz and Kingston offices. Moreover, we can treat hyperhidrosis in the underarms, palms of the hands, and soles of the feet. Please note that treatment is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or for people with a history of neuromuscular disorders.

Post-Treatment Expectations

After receiving injections for hyperhidrosis, you can expect a gradual reduction in sweating over the course of several days and you should notice the full effects within one to two weeks. Body odor will decrease as well, given that odor-causing bacteria thrive in the moist environments like our armpits. However, as with all treatments, it is important to note that individual results may vary.

You may experience mild redness or swelling in the treated areas, but these effects are temporary and typically subside within the first day. Also, contrary to some ideas floating around out there, just because you sweat less in the treatment area does NOT mean that you will sweat more in other areas, and it won’t impact your body’s ability to cool itself. 

Overall, in clinical studies, treatment with injectables has high patient satisfaction rates of over 90%, and you can resume normal daily activities after the treatment.

Your Path to Comfort Begins at Luna Dermatology

We understand the impact that excessive sweating can have on one’s daily life, and we are committed to helping you regain your confidence and comfort. At Luna Dermatology, our team of experienced skincare professionals can help you address hyperhidrosis with a treatment plan tailored to your goals.

For most patients, the results of injections for hyperhidrosis are highly effective and long-lasting. On average, patients can expect relief from excessive sweating for approximately six months or more. Over time, as the effects of your injections wear off, you may notice a gradual return of sweating. At that point, you can schedule a follow-up appointment at Luna Dermatology for a repeat treatment to maintain the desired results.
