Hyperhidrosis in New York, NY
While hyperhidrosis may not be serious, it can affect every area of your life and lead to embarrassment and anxiety. It's time to finally say goodbye to excessive sweating with hyperhidrosis treatment in New York City, Brooklyn Staten Island, and Queens with the caring staff at Dr. Dennis Gross Dermatology.
What Is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis refers to excessive sweating unrelated to exercise or heat. If you have hyperhidrosis, you may be bothered by hyperhidrosis symptoms, such as sweat that drips off your hands, soaks your clothing, and causes embarrassment. This condition can be a sign of a serious health condition, but it can also be unrelated to any underlying health problems. It typically affects the underarms, face, hands, and feet and may be experienced as episodes at least once per week.
How Much Does Hyperhidrosis Treatment Cost in New York, NY?
Hyperhidrosis treatment in New York is generally cost-effective when performed with neurotoxin injections like Dysport®. Most forms of health insurance also cover treatment for hyperhidrosis, a recognized health condition. At Dr. Dennis Gross Dermatology, we will work with you to create a tailored treatment plan and prepare an individual cost. If you have insurance coverage, we will submit a claim to your insurance provider on your behalf.
How Is Hyperhidrosis Treatment Performed?
Neurotoxins like Botox® aren't just for cosmetic purposes; they can also be used to effectively treat excessive sweating. How to treat hyperhidrosis with neurotoxin injections depends on the area affected, whether you have received injections in the past, and how well you responded.
Botulinum toxin treatments work by temporarily blocking the sympathetic nerves that are responsible for the exaggerated sweat response. After treatment, the chemical that signals activation of the sweat glands will no longer be released. After numbing your skin, several injections will be performed in the treatment area. While Botox® and other treatments are approved for hyperhidrosis of the underarms, they can also be used to treat excessive sweating of the feet and hands.
Because one brand of botulinum toxin may work better for you than others—or you may no longer respond as well to the same brand over time—Dr. Dennis Gross Dermatology carries all brands of neurotoxin injections to treat hyperhidrosis:
How Long Will Hyperhidrosis Treatment Results Last?
For most people, the results of Botox® or another botulinum toxin can last for six to 12 months to dramatically reduce or stop sweating in the treatment area. You will need to have the treatment repeated as the effects wear off and normal function returns to the nerves.

"I have been cared for by Dr. Dennis Gross for many years, and always receive thorough, professional care. Since I was a sun lover for many years, I develop skin cancers, especially on my face. Dr. Gross is such a great surgeon, my scars are barely visible. Plus he is so kind and reassuring, as is his staff."
