Introduction | Excessive Sweating | FAQ

Is hyperhidrosis always inherited?

No, it is not always inherited. However, a family history of hyperhidrosis has been found in nearly half of recorded cases. Hyperhidrosis can also develop as a result of another medical condition such as menopause or hyperthyroidism, in which case the sweating is typically spread across larger areas of the body.

Does the insurance company cover for the new laser treatment costs?

No.

Do the treatments permanently cure hyperhidrosis?

LaserDry provides long term results although the experience of this treatment is still limited. Botox injections usually provide temporary results. Surgical treatments, although providing more long term results, usually involve greater risks and side effects.
