Hyperhidrosis is a chronic medical disorder that results in excessive sweating. Common areas where patients seek dermatology treatment are the palms of the hands, underarms, and the soles of their feet. Experiencing excessive sweating can result in embarrassing pit stains and body odor, which may interfere with your normal daily activities, both socially and professionally.
SkinSpeaks is excited to offer miraDry®
a safe, clinically proven, FDA-cleared solution for the permanent elimination of underarm sweat and odor glands. miraDry is a non-invasive medical dermatology treatment that works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area. For those suffering from excessive sweating, miraDry is a sweat-stopping solution for all—from those with uncomfortably high sweat production to those simply wanting to shelve the daily deodorant drill. This dermatology procedure has minimal to no downtime, and you’ll notice a reduction in sweat immediately after the initial treatment.

Drysol is a prescription only skin care medication, which is moderately effective in treating hyperhidrosis. However, it may cause a severe skin rash. Initial success rates are positive, but long-term results are less satisfactory than other dermatology treatments like miraDry.
Robinul is an oral medication that works by decreasing the number of sweat glands. However, since the effects of this medication are not localized, side effects such as dry mouth, dry eyes, headache, and others common side effects are possible.
Botox Therapeutic treatment involves the injection of Botulinum toxin type A (Botox) under the skin, below the dermis, to reduce excessive sweating. The injections temporarily block the neurotransmitters that stimulate glands to produce sweat. Treatment results average 6 months.
