Axillary Hyperhidrosis


Axillary Hyperhidrosis

Excessive underarm sweating has a devastating effect on a person´s quality of life. In many cases, patients are affected emotionally and psychologically and have serious difficulties in their social and business interactions. Hyperhidrosis can lead to difficulties at work, limit career choices and even cause a person to loose their job. It is, therefore, a problem that affects all areas of the life of the person suffering it.

Hyperhidrosis is not a rare condition, on the contrary, according to different studies carried out by medical organisations, aproximately 3% of the world´s population is affected by some type of primary hyperhidrosis. Until recently, the available treatment options such as Botulinum toxin, ultrasound, microwave, endothoraic and lumbar symphatectomy, iontophoresis and non-specific lasers, did not offer satisfactory results.

For two years now, at Insituto láser Dr. Díaz Yanes we have been offering a new and minimally invasive treatment that provides a permant solution to axillary hyperhidrosis. Our new SLIMLIPO laser emits specific dual wavelengths of laser light that selectively destroy axillary sweat glands. The procedure, which is carried out under local anesthesia, lasts aproximately half an hour and results are immediate and permanent. A small 1.5mm fibre reaches and destroys the sweat glands in the subdermis via a tiny incision. The patient can go home straight after the procedure and return to normal daily activities.

How would you rate the severity of your Hyperhidrosis?

Grade I:

My sweating is never noticeable and never interferes with my daily activities.

Grade II

My sweating is tolerable but sometimes interferes with my daily activities.

Grade III

My sweating is barely tolerable and frequently interferes with my daily activities.

Grade IV

My sweating is intolerable and always interferes with my daily activities
