Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is an embarrassing condition that can have dramatic negative effects on peoples’ lives.
Laser Sweat Ablation (LSA) is a revolutionary new technique to treat sweating from the armpits.
Unlike other procedures which offer a temporary solution, Laser Sweat Ablation (LSA) provides a complete cure from underarm and armpit sweating in about 70%-80% of people.
Laser Sweat Ablation is a local anaesthetic walk-in walk-out procedure with very low risks. It only takes an hour to perform in most people and there are no incisions or stitches.
The Laser Sweat Ablation (LSA) procedure starts with marking to show the exact areas of sweating in the armpit.
A local anaesthetic is injected into each side after which a small optical fibre laser in introduced. The laser is then fired, destroying the sweat glands. The skin heals within a week with no perceptible scar.
Most people are able to resume normal activities after the procedure, although it takes about 1 week to get back to exercise or heavy physical activity.
The same procedure is also equally successful in treating excessive underarm body odour.
