About Hyperhidrosis or Excessive Sweating
Approximately 5% of Americans (15.3 million) report having hyperhidrosis,3 and many experts believe these numbers are an underestimation because the condition is underreported and underdiagnosed.3 Indeed, data show most adults with hyperhidrosis have never spoken to a healthcare provider about it. Further, only 18% are actually diagnosed, meaning the vast majority of the population (82%) remains undiagnosed.3 Additionally, the International Hyperhidrosis Society (IHHS) estimates one in three U.S. adults (85.2 million 4,5) are bothered by their excessive underarm sweating.4 Among consumers seeking aesthetic treatments, a recent survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found 58% stated they are bothered by excessive sweating.6
