The summer heat has officially arrived! Summertime is the time to grab some sunscreen and toss on shorts and t-shirts to make the most of the warmth while it lasts. Unfortunately, with heat also comes sweat.
For some people, summer sweating lasts all year long. Excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis, is commonly caused by overactive sweat glands and doesn’t always happen as a result of temperature, exercise, or nerves. Excessive sweating can be uncomfortable and embarrassing, and many people with it often try to hide it by wearing dark clothing or slathering on antiperspirant.
The great news is that these days there are non-invasive treatments that can address excessive sweating issues. Say goodbye to summer sweating with these great treatments AFYA offers.
Fractora for Excessive Sweating
Fractora is an amazing treatment that can be used to address a number of skin issues. It’s commonly used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, body scars, stretch marks, sun damage, and enlarged pores, while also improving skin laxity.
In addition to all of that, Fractora can also be used to treat excessive sweating. Fractora RF uses radiofrequency waves to induce heat into the lower layers of skin tissue that surround sweat glands. The heat helps diminish the sweat gland’s ability to produce sweat, which will treat hyperhidrosis.
Most clients will notice a 60-99% decrease in sweating within 1 to 2 treatments! Treatments only take about 45 minutes and can last 2-5 years. The great thing about Fractora is that you can resume your normal life within 24 hours post-treatment.
Wrinkle Injections for Excessive Sweating
Another popular treatment to reduce excessive sweating is to use wrinkle injections. By targeting certain areas, wrinkle injects will help control sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals to the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. This prevents sweat from being produced in the treatment areas.
Wrinkle injections for excessive sweating are best used to treat the underarms and along the forehead/hairline. Treatment only takes 10-20 minutes and you should begin noticing a decrease in within the first few days, although it can take a week for it to become fully effective. They’ll last for around 6-8 months.
