Sweating is a natural function that aims to regulate body temperature. It generally happens during activities that can increase blood pressure and raise your heart, causing your internal temperature to rise. Exercise, being in hot weather, hormonal shifts, and stress are all common triggers for sweating, which is generally manageable and ceases once the body gets back to a comfortable temperature.

Unfortunately, this is not the case for everyone. Hyperhidrosis is a condition where people excessively sweat, often with no real cure, and it is not always related to overheating or exercise. Hyperhidrosis is caused by excessive sweat glands, generally in hot-spots like the underarms, feet, palms, neck under the breasts, and upper lip.

It is triggered by overactivity in the nerves connected to the sweat glands that cause excessive sweating. For patients, this can be difficult to manage and cause them to sweat through or stain clothes and feel embarrassment or discomfort in certain settings, leading to social anxiety or mental strain. Sweat reduction treatments can be a huge relief for patients who struggle with hyperhidrosis in the Midwest and throughout Michigan, including Grand Rapids, Lansing, Kalamazoo, Bloomfield Hills, Detroit, and the neighboring communities.

While there are ways to treat and reduce the cause and symptoms of excessive sweating, what works for one patient may not have successful results with another.

Ideal Candidates

Am I an Eligible Candidate for Sweat Reduction?

There are two main types of hyperhidrosis that patients may have: primary focal hyperhidrosis, which causes the nerves responsible for signaling to become overstimulated, even without traditional triggers.

Stress and nervousness can increase symptoms, which can lead to a problematic cycle. This type of hyperhidrosis generally has identifiable underlying causes. Secondary hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating due to a medical condition, such as diabetes, thyroid issues, infection, low blood sugar, menopause, etc.

Seeing a doctor can help you rule out what type of hyperhidrosis you have and how to manage it. From there, you can determine if a cosmetic sweat reduction procedure will work for you. Candidates include men and women in overall good general health who have been cleared for a sweat reduction treatment. Schedule a consultation at the Bengtson Center to learn more about our procedures and whether you are an eligible candidate.
