Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a medical condition caused by hyperactive sweat glands. Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis is often misdiagnosed or goes untreated. Botox®, prescription strength antiperspirants and oral medications may be used for treatment. Botox® treatments have been FDA approved to minimize hyperhidrosis. Botox® works by blocking chemical signals from nerves that stimulate sweat production and is commonly used on patients’ hands, palms and armpits.

As an alternative to Botox and other medications, Wilmington Dermatology Center is excited to introduce MiraDry.  A revolutionary new treatment that is proven to eliminate the sweat glands in your armpits.  After one to two noninvasive treatments, patients report a 90+% efficacy rate in sweat reduction and the treatment has over a 90% satisfaction rating.  MiraDry results in real results for patients who no longer want to deal with the embarrassment and the inconvenience of under arm sweating.  For more information on this treatment, schedule a free consultation or read more on our miraDry page.
