Everybody sweats, but some people sweat more than others. In fact, some people sweat a lot more than others. Hyperhidrosis, the technical name for excessive sweating, impacts almost 8 million people in the United States alone. The phenomenon can go from being a frustrating inconvenience to a life-disrupting problem.

An overabundance of underarm sweat regardless of the weather can create constant wet spots on shirts, necessitating frequent changes of clothes that add unnecessary hassle and discomfort to the day. Patients seeking relief from hyperhidrosis in Grand Rapids, MI, can find it at the Bengtson Center.

Dr. Brad Bengtson offers both temporary and long-lasting hyperhidrosis treatments. The temporary solution involves BOTOX injections, while the long-lasting treatment involves miraDry - a non-surgical, precise electromagnetic energy treatment. The end result of either treatment is fewer changed shirts, a boost in confidence, and the peace of mind that comes from knowing clothes will stay dry. miraDry is an innovative, non-surgical treatment for underarm sweat, odor, and hair.

BOTOX for Temporary Hyperhidrosis Treatment in Grand Rapids

Long known as a wrinkle-stopping injectable, BOTOX is gaining increasing attention for its other benefits, including the fact that it's also a sweat-stopping injectable.

The active ingredient in the cosmetic that prevents forehead muscles from receiving messages telling them to contract is the same ingredient that prevents sweat glands from getting chemical signals that prompt them to produce sweat. The effects from a hyperhidrosis treatment session will gradually improve over the course of a week. Shallow injections made into the underarm area can stop sweat from streaming down for four months up to more than a year. At this point, the sweat associated with your previous active hyperhidrosis will gradually return. Our Grand Rapids hyperhidrosis patients who want to maintain dry underarms can return for follow-up treatments and enjoy the ongoing benefits of botox.

At the Bengtson Center in Grand Rapids hyperhidrosis treatment begins with a consultation.

During your consultation for hyperhidrosis treatment Grand Rapids plastic surgeons at the Bengtson Center will examine the patient, conduct an interview that includes a medical history and the patient's goals, and determine the most effective projected course of action. Injections for a temporary reprieve from the moisture may work well for one patient, while precision-directed energy to curb it may represent the best call for another.
