TREATING HYPERHIDROSIS WITH LASER SURGERY TREATMENTS
In order to keep your body temperature regulated your body produces sweat. It is a process that helps your body stay cool in hot and humid environments like New Jersey but it should never really interfere with your ability to interact or function. Once sweating becomes excessive, hyperhidrosis, it can interfere with your daily life and eventually lead you to seek out options for hyperhidrosis treatment in NJ.
WHAT IS HYPERHIDROSIS?
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition where excessive sweating occurs due to overactive sweat glands. Sweating is unpredictable and goes beyond what is needed to keep the body’s temperature regulated and for you to stay cool. Severe sweating can even occur during sleep for those who have hyperhidrosis. Issues that can occur from hyperhidrosis are dehydration and skin problems like strong body odor or infections. Some people sweat so much that they need to change their clothes several times a day in order to stay feeling fresh.
WHAT CAUSES HYPERHIDROSIS?
Most cases of hyperhidrosis occur because the person is unhealthy but many people have neurologic or genetic issues that cause them to suffer from this condition. Some who suffer from this condition have outbreaks when they are emotionally stressed or overheated while others can suffer from it every moment they awake, regardless of their environment or any triggers that may be involved.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR LASER SURGERY?
Having a consultation with your doctor they will be able to help you determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedure. If you suffer from excessive sweating that inhibits you from functioning then you could be a good candidate for laser surgery treatments.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM LASER SURGERY?
Once you’ve had laser surgery you can expect to have dryer armpits immediately and very little to no downtime at all. There are few complications that have been seen with laser surgery and patients experience minimal discomfort.
Many people find that having this condition can be extremely embarrassing often staining clothes and causing awkward social and business interactions. Severe cases can even make it difficult to shake hands or even get a good grip on practical things like a steering wheel or a pen or pencil.
