Hyperhidrosis - serious perspiration problems
Excessive perspiration is so bad for many people that they feel hindered in their daily functioning. Many of them can only wear clothes for one day and some even have to change into a clean shirt or socks during the day. And someone with continuously sweaty hands has a problem, especially in social and business dealings (shaking hands).
We can treat excessive perspiration in several ways. We will discuss an appropriate approach to excessive sweating with you.
Treatment of excessive sweating
Various treatments are possible, of which we only offer the miraDry with lasting effect. Because most treatments are temporary. Such as injections that block the signal to the sweat glands for several months. Closing the sweaty mouth with iontophoresis (electrical impulses) works especially well for hands and feet, but should be repeated every three to four days.
A drastic approach is the surgical procedure. Like a thoracic sympathectomy, in which the surgeon cuts a nerve in the chest. Complete removal of the sweat glands in the armpits is also an option. As with all surgical procedures, this involves risks and can leave scars. dr. Hans Coveliers carries out these operations in Belgium. These treatments are not performed in our clinic. For more information, please refer to the General Municipal Hospital in Aalst.
The latest treatment for armpit sweat is to permanently disable the sweat glands with radio-magnetic radiation. You can contact us for that.
miraDry treatment against excessive armpit sweat
We perform the miraDry treatment against excessive armpit sweat at our Westerpark location in Amsterdam. The treatment takes place in two sessions, three months apart. After the second treatment you are guaranteed to have permanently dry armpits. This outpatient method works excellently and definitively, has no side effects and is also much cheaper than surgery or years of repeat treatments.
