Many people suffer from hyperhydrosis which is excessive sweating of the feet, hands and armpits. Treatment for this has been poor until now. The SmartLipo laser which uses two simultaneous wave lengths, 924 nm and 975 nm to treat excess fat and help tighten skin, now has a new application. Studies have shown treatment with these wave lengths significantly reduced sweating in the axilla or armpit area. This treatment can not be used for feet or hands. The procedure is performed through a small incision, under light sedation and with only minimal down time. Occasionally, a follow up treatment is needed and improvement rates are approximately 90%. Ask your board certified plastic surgeon if this treatment is right for you.
