Approximately 8 million Americans suffer from a condition known as hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. If you’re embarrassed that your underarms are always wet, tired of body odor or want freedom to wear what you want without worrying about underarm staining, come on in; hyperhidrosis is common, but it’s also treatable.

Precision Laser Treatment- Kiss Excess Sweating Goodbye

While deodorants and topical treatments work from the outside in, the Precision laser treatment fights excess sweating from within, where the sweat is actually formed. The powerful laser inactivates sweat glands and can provide long term relief from excess sweating.

Patients are generally quite pleased with the results of Precision laser treatment for excess sweating; 80% found that sweating levels normalized with treatment in one study. Only one treatment is needed for results. Stop feeling embarrassed by hyperhidrosis and take control of your body today.

A Quick Look at the Procedure

The Precision laser treatment for hyperhidrosis is a unique treatment option that attacks sweat glands from under the skin. A small incision is made to the underarm area through which a thin laser fiber is inserted. Treatment is relatively quick; some patients even come in on a long lunch. Any pain from the procedure is numbed with local anesthesia and the incision is so small that it won’t even need stitches.

Most people are back to their regular activities almost immediately after treatment. There may be some soreness and swelling for a few days, but overall the recovery process is quite minimal. After treatment regular antiperspirant and deodorant will typically control any sweating.

Not Just for the Underarms

Armpits might be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of sweat, but other areas can be affected as well. Sweaty palms and stinky feet are two other common problem areas when it comes to sweat. The Precision laser can be used to control excess sweating on the hands and feet as well as the armpits.

Other Treatments for Hyperhidrosis

Other treatment options for hyperhidrosis are available as well. Some people find relief through Botox treatments. While these results are not as long lasting as the Precision laser treatments, Botox is FDA approved to treat excess sweating in the underarms, hands and feet.

If you’re still feeling sweaty even in the dead of winter, maybe you have hyperhidrosis. Stop fighting the losing battle with sweat with the Precision laser. Raise your arms high with confidence; we’ll help you get your hyperhidrosis under control.
