Hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating, can be an embarrassing problem for many. At Persona, we are able to treat this issue in a couple of different ways. For some, Botox injected into the area(s) prone to excess sweating, such as the armpits, palms of the hands or soles of the feet, can be very effective. Botox works to prevent the release of a chemical that signals sweat glands to activate. Patients treated with Botox injections may experience relief and results that last up to a year.
Precision Laser™ is a minimally invasive procedure that delivers laser energy by a fiber through a small cannula to ablate the axillary glands in the armpit that cause excessive sweating. This is a one-time, one-hour procedure that is ideal for great results with little downtime. The precision laser is specifically designed to deliver energy to targeted tissues in the axillary gland area of the armpit. The precision laser delivers heat energy at the depth that treats axillary hyperhydrosis, also known as underarm sweating. Small incisions, the size of a pen tip, are made after the area to be treated is locally anesthetized and clients can expect to be back to normal activities quickly.
