Where Do You Sweat?

Underarm (Axillary) Hyperhidrosis

The two types of sweat glands, located in the underarm, the apocrine and eccrine glands, work in conjunction to produce fluid to aid in thermoregulation of the body, giving sweat its distinctive odor. When excessive sweating occurs, these two glands go into overdrive, soaking through shirts and rendering most antiperspirants useless.

The Hyperhidrosis Center at Thoracic Group provides the solution for combatting excessive underarm sweating with miraDry® technology.

Hand (Palmar) Hyperhidrosis

Palmar hyperhidrosis is the most common form of hyperhidrosis (occurring in about one percent of the population). Excessive hand sweating begins in childhood and can make simple everyday tasks such as driving or opening a door nearly impossible to accomplish.

When all other conservative treatments for this condition have failed, the dedicated surgeons with The Hyperhidrosis Center at Thoracic Group utilize video assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) sympathectomy, a minimally invasive treatment with a 98 percent success rate for curing palmar hyperhidrosis.

Facial Blushing and Sweating

Though known as facial blushing, the blushing and sweating commonly originate around where the upper chest and neck meet. Then, they extend upward to the forehead and ears.

At The Hyperhidrosis Center at Thoracic Group, our world-class surgeons are the leaders of video assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) sympathectomy, a procedure performed to effectively treat sweating and discoloration of the face, head and neck.
