Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is uncomfortable and annoying for several reasons. Sweating too much can make you uncomfortable in certain types of clothing and fabrics. Not to mention, you may even feel embarrassed about it in social situations.
It’s normal to perspire when you’re working out, are in higher temperatures, or even in times of stress. However, it’s not normal to sweat without a “reason.” Sweating for no reason is a symptom of hyperhidrosis.
While everyone knows that sweating is a natural part of being human, it doesn’t feel good to bare your underarm sweat stains for all to see. The good news is that you don’t have to live with excessive underarm sweat. We offer two great options for underarm hyperhidrosis treatment in Rogers!
Before we discuss these treatments, let’s go over some basic information about hyperhidrosis.
Hyperhidrosis is the condition of excessive sweating in unusual scenarios where sweating shouldn’t occur, like in cold weather. The purpose of sweating is to help cool your body down when it needs it, such as during exercise.
There are two types of hyperhidrosis: secondary generalized and primary focal.
Secondary generalized hyperhidrosis is when the excess sweating is a secondary symptom of a condition or side effect of medication. There are many medical conditions and medications that can cause secondary generalized hyperhidrosis. Therefore, it’s important that you speak with your doctor about treatment for this condition.
Primary focal hyperhidrosis is when excessive sweating occurs in specific areas of the body, including feet, hands, face, head, and underarms.
Common symptoms of hyperhidrosis include:
- Family history of hyperhidrosis
- Sweating that affects your daily activities and relationships
- Excessive sweating in unusual conditions without environmental factors. (Basically, sweating for no reason.)
- Antiperspirants and deodorants not helping the sweating and odor
- Need for a frequent change of clothes
Now that we have an overview of the symptoms of hyperhidrosis, let’s go over treatment options.
Underarm Hyperhidrosis treatment in Rogers
Below we discuss how each of these treatments works, their benefits, and more.
miraDry® is the only non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that significantly reduces the size of underarm sweat and odor glands to treat axillary hyperhidrosis. It uses thermal energy to generate heat in the underarm and safely eliminates sweat and odor glands in the area.
Our underarms’ sweat glands account for 2% of the body’s total sweat glands. So, you can still sweat for the natural benefits of it WITHOUT the bothersome effects of excessive underarm sweat.
Bonus: miraDry® can also work as an effective hair reduction treatment! It leads to a 70% reduction for all hair colors after one treatment. You will notice a change in the amount of hair growth and the thickness and density of hair present after treatment.

Botox®️ for underarm hyperhidrosis treatment
Another clinically proven treatment for hyperhidrosis in the underarms is Botox®️. You may know Botox®️ for its cosmetic use, but its success as a treatment for excessive armpit sweating is noteworthy.
We inject Botox®️ to treat axillary hyperhidrosis when topicals like antiperspirants aren’t enough. It is a neurotoxin, which is an effective treatment that temporarily paralyzes muscles, and it can also treat neuromuscular conditions.
