Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that involves overactive sweat glands. Excessive sweating, can be distressing and affect a person’s quality of life. Fortunately, there are several treatment options available to manage this condition. The choice of treatment depends on the severity of the hyperhidrosis, the areas affected, and the individual’s preferences. Its treatment usually involves interventions that directly target the sweat glands or the nerve signals that stimulate them.
Many of our clients are now familiar with BOTOX® treatments for excessive sweating. But they may not realize that laser therapy can also treat underarm sweating. The Fotona® Axillary Hyperhidrosis Laser treatment by applying heat destroys the overactive sweat glands. Without damaging any of the surrounding skin and tissue.
Laser Axillary Hyperhidrosis Treatment is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive solution for hyperhidrosis. Laser treatments are among the least invasive of all surgical techniques, so scarring and patient immobilization are not a concern.
For treating hyperhidrosis, 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser light is used to permanently destroy axillary sweat glands by photoselectively heating sweat gland tissue without damaging the surrounding tissue. The procedure is performed under local anesthetic and is finished in less than an hour.
This is significant news for anyone who constantly battles wet underarms and staining of clothes. The treatment is non-invasive and extremely effective.
We also offer permanent improvement for armpit hyperhidrosis using Fractora. Fractora is a radiofrequency device that delivers energy through specially designed tips. These tips produce thermal (heat) damage under the skin. Fractora can permanently destroy the majority of the sweat glands in the armpit area therefore a single treatment reduces unwanted excess sweat and odor. Finally stop the overproduction of sweat. It is a safe and effective way to dramatically decrease excess sweating in the underarm area. The device is also an excellent option for skin rejuvenation and scar treatment. With the same radiofrequency technology helping to improve skin texture from the inside out.
