Underarm Sweating Overview
Excessive underarm sweating, a condition known as axillary hyperhidrosis, can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. Excessive sweating is caused by overactive eccrine sweat glands. The consumption of specific foods, stress, anxiety, and emotional stimuli can all contribute to and worsen the problem. The excessive perspiration can stain clothing, create an underarm wet spot, and lead to anxiety and embarrassment. Many times, layers of clothing, no matter how dark, are not able to conceal the underlying problem. If you are seeking relief from excessive underarm sweating, consider innovative treatment options at Hogue Cosmetic Surgery.
A list of effective treatments for excessive underarm sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis) at Hogue Cosmetic Surgery include the following:

This sweat gland ablation procedure is painlessly performed with the skin and underlying tissues completely numbed using infiltrative dilute local anesthesia. The duration of sweat gland suppression may last for several years or longer, depending on the reparative and regenerative capacity of the person receiving treatment.
