We all have things about our bodies that embarrass us or make us uncomfortable, but does that mean we have to live with them? What if there was a way to fix what bothers you about your body? Would you take that fix, in order to be more confident and lead a more fulfilled life? The good news is, many embarrassing body problems are not hard to fix, if you know where to go.
- Excessive sweating can undermine your confidence. If you’ve tried clinical strength antiperspirants and still can’t control your underarm sweating, you may have severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis. This condition causes the body to sweat more than is necessary to regulate body temperature, and it can really interfere with a person’s daily activities. Does this sound familiar? BOTOX® may be the solution. If BOTOX® is right for you, your doctor will make 10-15 injections in the underarm area, reducing underarm sweating significantly within just four weeks.
- Hair loss can be embarrassing. It can also leave you feeling helpless, as you try to figure out how to look your best, avoiding the dreaded comb-over look. The good news? There’s a non-surgical, effective way to slow hair loss and promote the regrowth of a patient’s own natural hair. Platelet Rich Plasma hair restorative therapy, or PRP, involves the injection of your own platelet-rich plasma into your scalp, stimulating natural hair growth. Unlike other hair restoration therapies, it can even change genetic baldness! Most patients experience improvement after just a few treatments, and the process only takes about 20 minutes.
- For a man, breasts can negatively impact self-esteem and even cause depression. Over-development of breast tissue in males is called gynecomastia, and it can be caused by several different factors. It could be a hormone imbalance or an excess of estrogen caused by obesity. It can happen at puberty or as a man ages because these are both times of hormonal shift. Gynecomastia can even be a side effect of certain medications or the result of drinking too much or indulging in illegal drugs. Sometimes, a health condition like kidney failure, liver disease or even an infection in the testicles can be the problem. How is it treated? There are surgical and non-surgical solutions, and your doctor can help you decide which options are best for you. You may need medication to adjust your hormonal imbalance, or you may need liposuction or an excision. Whatever the case, your doctor can help you find a solution.
