Sweat. To some, it’s no big deal—but to others, it’s a huge inconvenience. In fact, there are people who suffer from excessive sweating, having tried all the at-home remedies with absolutely no luck. If this sounds like you, it may be time to consider another option. Learn more about the excessive sweating treatments Palo Alto Laser & Skin Care has to offer!
Laser Sweat Ablation
Laser sweat ablation is an extremely effective treatment option, eliminating or significantly reducing underarm sweat in 80% of patients.
The procedure involves making a small incision in the skin, followed by a laser that destroys the sweat glands directly. The results of this treatment are permanent, but in some cases, a second session may be required.
Most people return to work after a laser sweat ablation treatment, however, it is normal to experience soreness for a few days after the procedure.
Botox, most commonly known as an injectable treatment for lines and wrinkles, can help with excessive sweating as well. One treatment is proven to provide about six months of relief!
While the formula of this injection is the same as what is used to correct wrinkles, there is a difference in how much is administered when it’s used for excessive sweating. Botox is proven safe and effective for severe sweating under the arms, so be sure to consult with a specialist if you are interested in a different treatment area.
