Hyperhidrosis is defined as an excessive sweating, hyper sweating. People with this disorder have an abnormally high amount of sweat either on a specific part of the body like the armpits, feet, hands or face (it is called localized hyperhidrosis), either it can be located all over the body, and in this case, it is called general excessive sweating.

Can hair removal reduce excessive sweating?

Even though the link has not yet been strictly identified, some assumptions claim that hair removal can be a trigger of hyperhidrosis.The reason is that hair retain moisture in the body. Thus maintaining a body temperature of 37°C. It is therefore possible that hair removal contributes to the development of the disease.

Since there are various hair removal techniques, some may more favour hyper sweating than others. As indicated above, hair play an essential role in the regulation of body temperature. However, depending on the type of hair, it may take more or less time to grow, which can lead to an imbalance.

Benefits of hair removal on sweating

Waxing is fundamental to have a good personal hygiene. You should know that sweating is accompanied by a greater or lesser odour, for instance genitals have the strongest odour. On the one hand, hair trap perspiration and on the other hand, their presence is not hygienic.

Effect on the smell

Hair removal avoids the growing of bacteria generating odours. Without hair, sweat evaporates better and sweat secreted by the apocrine glands no longer stagnates on the skin. Also, this type of treatment immediately eliminates embarrassing odours.

What kind of hair removal choose?

The less hair, the better. According to this, permanent hair removal is most effective. It is better to do without traditional hot wax and razors. For some people, however, using machines operating with laser is to be avoided since it accentuates the perspiration.

Contraindications for hair removal?

To be sure not to err on the right type of hair removal, a visit to a dermatologist is needed. As a specialist, the dermatologist will indicate the right things to do, explain the good and bad habits, determine or enumerate the things to avoid at all costs not to accentuate excessive sweating.
