Excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis) can have negative effects on people’s social lives, special moments, and professional careers. Underarm sweating is one of the most common problems encountered today. It leads to an unpleasant physical appearance due to the constant need for individuals to control themselves psychologically.

While underarm sweating can be highly bothersome for some individuals, such conditions generally arise from genetic factors and hormonal imbalances. For those who do not experience excessive sweating genetically, problems arising from the heat during the summer months become apparent. Underarm sweating treatment can eliminate sweating issues for both women and men.

Therapeutic Methods for Underarm Sweating

Treatment methods for underarm sweating can be divided into two categories: simple and advanced, for those seeking a solution to the problem of underarm sweating. As a simple solution for underarm sweating, the use of lotions, creams, gels, and soaps can be mentioned as examples. While these products may reduce underarm sweating, they are not entirely effective in eliminating the problem. Advanced methods for underarm sweating treatment include Botox, clamping ETS surgery, and iontophoresis therapy.

Underarm sweating therapy performed using the Botox method involves marking and injecting the areas where sweat is produced at 15-20 points. Although the effects are temporary, the procedure needs to be repeated every 6-7 months. The application process may cause discomfort and it is also an expensive procedure.

Iontophoresis is an alternative method for underarm sweating therapy. It is based on applying direct current to the underarms. By creating a shock effect on the sweat glands through the application of electricity, it helps alleviate sweating. It is applied in sessions of 2-3 times per week and typically requires a total of 20-30 sessions to complete.
