How to Stop Sweaty Palms Los Angeles, CA

Sweaty palms during a handshake or dripping foreheads during important meetings are not always the result of Los Angeles’ sunny days. For about 4% of the population, this is a daily reality, courtesy of hyperhidrosis. At Rivkin Aesthetics, we understand the social and emotional hurdles that come with excessive sweating. Let’s delve into what hyperhidrosis is and the transformative treatments we offer, promising a new kind of freedom from sweat’s clutches.

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by excessive and unpredictable sweating, affecting areas like the palms, underarms, feet, or face. It’s not just about dealing with a bit of extra sweat; it’s about having overactive sweat glands that don’t know when to take a break. This condition can stem from anxiety, heightened emotional states, or simply genetics, making everyday activities a challenge for those affected.

The Rivkin Aesthetics Approach

Dr. Rivkin and our team at Rivkin Aesthetics in Los Angeles prioritize non-invasive treatments, ensuring patient comfort and satisfaction. Botox, our go-to solution for hyperhidrosis, provides a safe and effective remedy, but it’s just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what we offer.

Topical Treatments

For milder cases, we start with the basics: powders and strong antiperspirants like Drysol, containing aluminum chloride hexahydrate. These options can provide temporary relief, acting as a first line of defense against excessive sweating.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX Cosmetic is not just for wrinkles; it’s a game-changer for those battling sweaty palms and underarms. By targeting the nerves responsible for sweat production, BOTOX significantly reduces sweating in treated areas. The process is swift, with minimal discomfort, and the results can last from six to twelve months, offering a long-awaited respite for many.

Oral Anticholinergics

While not our first recommendation due to potential side effects, oral anticholinergics can reduce sweating by counteracting acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter responsible for triggering sweat glands.


For those with patience and milder symptoms, iontophoresis uses a small electric charge to deliver medication through the skin, offering another non-invasive option for managing hyperhidrosis.


As a last resort, surgery can be considered for extreme cases. Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy involves clamping or cutting the nerves controlling sweating. While effective, Dr. Rivkin stresses exploring all less invasive options first.

The Value of Dry Palms

Investing in treatments for hyperhidrosis at Rivkin Aesthetics goes beyond physical comfort; it’s about regaining confidence and freedom. The ability to shake hands, wear any color, or simply enjoy a warm day without worry can significantly improve one’s quality of life.
