Facial Hyperhidrosis

Slight increases in temperature and humidity are the stimuli for facial sweating. The sweating usually involves the entire scalp and face. It affects both men and women. They find themselves soaking with sweat on the face and scalp, while doing the most minimal of activities. This is believed to be genetic condition and is not related to being overweight. The severe sweating causes embarrassment and frustration to those who have this condition; however, it is difficult to explain it to those who do not suffer from it. Many people avoid outdoor social functions and prefer to stay in very cold rooms, to minimize the chance of this sweating. To avoid sweat in their hair, women often resort to wear their hair short; they cannot wear makeup,because it runs.

Sometimes, both men and women will wear towels around their neck, as a method of absorbing the excess moisture. The uncontrolled and embarrassing condition of facial sweating and blushing can be effectively treated with Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy (ETS), a surgical procedure with an 80 – 85% success rate for facial hyperhidrosis. The same, exact, procedure is mainly performed to cure sweaty hands and armpits. Our doctors specialize in the control of Facial Sweating and Blushing, in addition to Underarm Sweating, Sweaty Feet, and Sweaty Hands.

Facial Blushing

Individuals with Severe Facial Blushing, or, facial hyperhidrosis characteristically experience blushing that is intense, constant, and lasts for a prolonged period of time. Prior to onset, patients usually experience intense facial heat. The face and neck will usually glow a bright red color. The glow may start over the cheeks, radiate onto the forehead, then the neck, and finally, cover the ears. Individuals with facial blushing may respond, in an exaggerated way, to a multitude of stimuli. In extreme cases, those affected with severe Facial Blushing may develop an anxiety condition called, “Social Phobia”. The condition, stemming from hyperactivity of the sympathetic nervous system, often causes the skin to appear greasy. It may occur, alone, or in combination with facial sweating.

I dreaded attending church or social gatherings because it meant I had to face others. Also, I had difficulty handling tools at work because everything I touched became wet.

Helena, Montana
“I tried medicines– from Beta Blockers– to lotions– to antipsychotics, but to no avail. I was using Drysol. At the beginning, it was great. I had dry hands for two weeks in-between doses. Then slowly, the medication started to lose its affect on me. Instead of applying once every two weeks, it was once every two days. I started to look on the Internet for other alternatives and found the website for treating hyperhidrosis.”
