Excessive sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis) is an embarrassing condition that affects thousands of people across the world. The areas most prone to gathering of excessive sweat include the hands, underarms and feet. The accumulation of excessive sweat in these areas does not serve any cooling function in our bodies unlike the regular perspiration in other areas. The condition can cause emotional distress, as well as medical problems such as fungus infections and hand eczema.
Although neurologic, metabolic and other systematic diseases can sometimes cause excessive sweating, most cases occur in people who are otherwise healthy. Heat and emotions may trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat nearly all the time, regardless of their mood or the weather.
We bring the latest breakthrough in treating the excessive sweating condition. The Drionic treatment works on excess sweat without affecting functional sweating. It is a simple battery operated device containing no chemicals. The mild currents from Drionic cause a temporary plug to develop in the sweat duct keeping underarms, hands or feet comfortably dry for six week periods. The device can be re-used following the first treatment cycle for another six weeks of treatment. Based upon the patient’s condition, we may also use Botox® injections and topical antiperspirants.
