Laser Assisted Reduction

 

The Laser Assisted Hyperhidrosis Procedure is designed to produce the permanent removal of underarm sweat glands, using a technique very similar to the commonly performed Laser Assisted Liposuction.

The procedure was first performed and described by Dr. Diego Schavelzon and Dr. Guillermo Blugerman (Buenos Aires) who used an Nd:YAG laser to treat 52 patients between 2003 and 2007 period with excellent results

The Laser Assisted Hyperhidrosis Procedure was Launched in UK in 2009

There are several very significant advantages in this procedure over other Hyperhidrosis treatments:

Most noticeable, perhaps, is the fact that the treatment offers the potential for a permanent solution of underarm sweating (as opposite to today’s most common method – botox gland fixation, which typically lasts for 4-8 months)

The procedure is relatively speedy, being completed in an hour, and uses local tumescent anaesthesia so can be performed in an outpatient setting.

From the clinician’s point of view, it is quick, cheap and relatively easy, with a low level of complications or side effects.

Results to date show a high success rate and the combination of all these factors make it a great solution for patients.  Read a clinical reveiw of Hyperhidrosis treatment with Nd:Yag laser
