Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition causing your sweat glands to produce more sweat than necessary to cool down your body. It can occur with physical activity, exercise, hormones, stress, and emotional changes. Excessive sweat usually occurs in the underarms, palms of the hand, and bottoms of the feet. You don’t have to be diagnosed with hyperhidrosis to have an issue with excessive sweat. If find yourself uncomfortable or embarrassed on a regular basis, it is worth considering treatment.

Until more recently, there have been few effective treatments for managing excessive sweat. Medications and Botox may work for some, but they are temporary and come with the hassle of needing to repeat. They can also come with unwanted side effects. Additionally, Botox is very expensive and can be cost prohibitive.
Encino medspa director and practicing physician, Dr. Hadi, is pleased to offer patients Morpheus 8 for the treatment of hyperhidrosis and for excessive sweat that is bothersome.
Morpheus 8 uses radiofrequency energy combined with microneedling to effectively reduce sweat glands which in turn reduces the production of sweat. Optimal results typically require a series of two to three Morpheus 8 sessions spaced about four weeks apart. Morepheus 8 is non-surgical and requires just a topical anesthetic. There is also no downtime. Unlike the miraDry underarm elimination treatment, Morpheus 8 can also be used on the hands and feet.
If you are bothered by excessive sweat or hyperhidrosis, contact Dr. Hadi’s office today to find out more about Morepheus 8.
