Excessive Sweating (technically known as hyperhidrosis) is a condition affecting millions of people around the world. Uncontrolled sweating can occur in various parts of the body including the face, hands, feet but predominantly in the underarms.
What are the causes of excessive sweating?
Although high temperatures or stress can increase perspiration, they don’t cause hyperhidrosis. Instead, hyperhidrosis may be an inherited trait that stops the body from properly regulating its temperature. Until recently, excessive sweating has been difficult to control. Anti Sweating Injections are commonly used to help offer a temporary solution however, a new technique known as Laser/ Vaser Sweat Ablation is leading the way in long term and permanent improvements.
The treatments available for excessive sweating can be classified into the following groups:
- Laser Sweat Ablation – provides a long term permanent improvement
- Vaser Sweat Ablation – provides a long term permanent improvement
- Anti Sweating Injections – offer a temporary improvement
Excessive Sweating Treatment using Laser Sweat Ablation
Laser Sweat Ablation is a technique that offers patients a permanent less invasive option for sweaty armpits. There is minimal discomfort and you can resume normal activities the same day. It is based on a infrared laser that generates heat to destroy the sweat glands and results in sweat-free armpits and an end to those socially awkward moments.
