Frequently Asked Questions
What causes excessive sweating?
Excessive sweating can be attributed to overactive nerves that trigger your sweat glands to output copious amounts of perspiration even when it's not needed. This condition is termed primary hyperhidrosis. Primary hyperhidrosis is predominantly hereditary. It’s also important to note that excessive sweating can be a foretelling sign of underlying health conditions such as leukemia, hyperthyroidism or diabetes.
Are Sculpsure and Botox safe treatments for sweat reduction?
Injections of Botox are FDA-approved for patients experiencing excessive sweating from their armpits. Botox is also commonly used to reduce sweating in other areas, such as the hands, feet, and forehead. Sculpsure laser treatments are also safe and effective at reducing underarm sweat. The use of the laser’s energy, reduces the production of sweat glands under your arms to address the root of the problem area.
Where should I go for Sculpsure treatments to reduce sweating?
JUVA Skin & Laser Center is the premiere place for addressing your sweat concerns. JUVA is proud to announce that we have conducted a clinical trial of Sculpsure for sweat reduction; 100% of the patients involved continued to experience a reduction in underarm sweat even one year after the Sculpsure treatment.
Are injectables and laser treatments for sweat reduction painful?
Both treatments are virtually painless. Rest assured that the needles used for Botox injections are relatively small so pain is usually minimal. We offer to numb the target area(s) with a topical anesthetic making the treatments practically effortless.
When will I see results from the sweat reduction treatments?
You will experience results immediately from both Sculpsure and Botox treatments. Sweating will reduce and become effectively non-existent over time.
How long will results last?
Botox injections to combat excessive sweating typically last for 4-6 months, and Sculpsure treatments can last at least a year and often for several years.
