Sweating in the armpits is simply an irritation for most people, but it’s often uncomfortable and embarrassing for those that sweat a lot. If you sweat heavily and you’ve tried prescription antiperspirants, medications, and other treatments without success, you’re probably wondering – How can I stop excessive underarm sweating?
Excessive underarm sweating
Excessive underarm sweating, known medically as axillary hyperhidrosis, is a condition that is generally caused by overactive sweat glands.
How can you stop Excessive Sweating?
There was a time when only temporary fixes were available for excessive underarm sweating. However, those struggling to cope with the condition can now opt for a long term solution known as Precision TX.Precision TX is a revolutionary procedure that uses focused laser energy to target and destroy sweat glands in the underarm.
Precision TX for underarm sweating
Precision TX is a minimally invasive, in-office treatment for underarm sweating, and it only takes a single one-hour sessionto achieve long lasting results.
How it works
Tiny incisions are made in the underarms through which a very small cannula (tube) is inserted under the skin. The incisions are very small, so any scars are hardly visible after treatment. The cannula contains the laser fiber that delivers the heat directly to the sweat glands and destroys them.
What to expect
There is generally minor swelling and irritation after treatment, but these symptoms usually resolve within a few days. However, this does not prevent patients from resuming normal activities right away.
