What Is Hyperhydrosis?
Hyperhydrosis is a relatively common problem that affects many people. Although sweating is a normal body function, in some individuals it is unnecessarily excessive. Typically people with Hyperhydrosis have excessive sweating of their axilla (arm pits), hands or feet.
What Is The Treatment for Hyperhydrosis?
Until recently the most common treatment had been Botox® injections to the affected area, which can be costly and would require repeat treatments on a regular basis. There is now a more permanent solution for those suffering from excessive sweating of the axilla (arm pit). With the use of Laser Assisted Liposuction, the sweat glands can be removed from the affected area in just one treatment.
How Is The Procedure Done?
The laser procedure is done using a local anesthetic and takes less than an hour, with minimal discomfort and downtime. This treatment has been found to tremendously improve the quality of life for individuals affected by this condition
