Do you see yourself reapplying deodorant and avoiding certain clothes to mask the effects of excessive sweat? Excessive sweat can be embarrassing when the body sweats more than needed. This noticeable condition is referred to as hyperhidrosis. Read more to learn about the causes, side effects, and treatments of hyperhidrosis.

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is an excessive sweating condition not always linked to heat or exercise. Hyperhidrosis happens when the body sweats more than needed for heat regulation. You may sweat more than average, causing your clothes to become drenched and your skin wet. Hyperhidrosis typically occurs within a specific type of sweat gland called the eccrine glands. There are more eccrine glands in areas where excessive sweating generally arises. Hyperhidrosis typically occurs in the hands, feet, armpits, and face.


Hyperhidrosis can be triggered by heat, exercise, movement, emotions, hormones, and nerves. Excessive sweating may also occur as a side effect of medications and other health conditions. These may include but are not limited to heart disease, overactive thyroid, menopause, low blood sugar, infections, and stroke.

Side Effects

Hyperhidrosis can cause discomfort both physically and emotionally. Hyperhidrosis may cause dripping skin, sweat-stained clothes, embarrassment, distress, social anxiety, body odor, painful and irritated skin, and fungal infections. The emotional effects may cause you to avoid certain clothes, wear only darker colors, and stay away from anything tight-fitting to minimize the visibility of your sweat. You may also notice yourself worrying about the visibility of sweat on your body, getting self-conscious about your body odor, becoming reluctant to make physical contact, changing clothes, and wearing pads under your arms.

Due to the distressing nature of this condition, hyperhidrosis symptoms can overflow into other more critical areas of your life, including your career, relationships, and hobbies. When this becomes an issue, you know it is time for a solution.

Sometimes, even the most potent antiperspirants don’t cut it. When all else fails, there are more solutions to excessive sweating. Treatments include medication that lowers the body’s ability to sweat, Iontophoresis, where electricity temporarily turns off the sweat glands, and underarm surgery or Botox treatment.

At Aesthetic Evolution, we provide Botox containing the botulinum toxin that blocks the nerves that stimulate sweating. This is only effective in the area where it is injected.
