What is Hyperhidrosis?
Board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Renee Snyder, and her team of skilled physicians treat excessive sweating in adults. Also known as hyperhidrosis, this is a condition that causes an exuberant amount of sweating, most commonly in the area under the armpit, but it can also affect the hands, feet, and a variety of other body areas. Excessive sweating may be episodic or continuous, and it may also be caused by warm weather, emotional stress, or for no reason at all. In some individuals, the condition may be due to an underlying medical condition such as obesity, menopause, thyroid, or a psychiatric disorder. However, the vast majority of patients have what is known as essential hyperhidrosis, for which the cause is unknown. Excessive sweating can be extremely embarrassing and can significantly undermine your confidence in day-to-day interactions with others. It is our goal to help you control and treat the unwanted symptoms of hyperhidrosis and eliminate worry in the workplace and in your everyday life.
"As usual, Dr. Aranda goes above and beyond in providing a personable care that is difficult to find. She takes the time to discuss various treatment options, discusses the pros and cons of each and genuinely values your input to collectively determine the best outcome. I feel so strongly about Dr. Aranda, Dr. Snyder and their professional staff that I still went to them last year when they were out of network. Thank you Dr. Aranda, you're just great!"- B.J. / Google / Mar 25, 2017

"I didnt know what to expect coming here because some of the reviews on here say the staff is so rude. But i had the most pleasant experience here. From the moment i opened the door, i felt welcomed. The doctor herself was such a delight. She talked to me in a manner that made me feel so comfortable. She diagnosed me with something i kind of thought i had already, so now to see what the treatment does. I will see her again in three months. So overall, im glad i chose this office for my dermatology needs."- E.G. / Google / Feb 14, 2019

"Dr Cervantes is great!!!! She is very easy to talk with and I feel she did a thorough skin exam... I have had to do regular skin exams for about 10 years due to precancerous spots on my face and back. I started going to Snyder dermatology 2 years ago and feel Dr Cervantes is the Best I have seen!!"- J.H. / Yelp / Feb 13, 2019
In order to determine if a patient suffers from hyperhidrosis, a physician must perform a physical exam to get a more in-depth look at the areas in which there is excessive sweating. There will also be a series of questions that will help the doctor understand your condition. If it is determined that there is an underlying medical condition that is causing the excessive sweating, then additional diagnoses and treatments need to be completed.
How to Treat Hyperhidrosis
There are multiple options for treatment of hyperhidrosis, including prescription-strength antiperspirants, oral medicaions and/or the use of BOTOX®.
While antiperspirants and BOTOX may reduce the sweating in the areas that they are applied to, both of these treatments are considered a temporary fix. The antiperspirants must be applied every day, while BOTOX must be injected into the affected areas every 4 – 6 months.
Oral medical medications such as glycopyrrolate can be taken orally or made into a topical preparation to successfully control symptoms.
