Do You Sweat Too Much? 6 Ways to Stop Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating is known as hyperhidrosis. If you're getting soaked—even when you're not working out—try these tricks for getting heavy perspiration under control.

Consider Surgical Options

If antiperspirants aren’t able to stop the floodgates, you could ask your doctor about getting Botox injections, which were FDA-approved in 2004 for treating hyperhidrosis. Another treatment known as the miraDry Procedure recently received FDA approval, and a handful of doctors are beginning to offer it across the country. “The miraDry Procedure eliminates sweat glands in the underarm safely and non-invasively, so people can expect lasting results and stop excessive underarm sweat from interfering with their lives," says Jeffrey Klein, MD, a dermatologic surgeon practicing in San Juan Capistrano and Newport Beach in Orange County, California. You can get the one- to two-hour treatment at a dermatologist’s office. The results are long-lasting since sweat glands don’t regenerate, but it calls for two treatments to reap maximum benefits.
