This young medical student suffered from axillary hyperhidrosis which is the fancy way of saying she sweated buckets. She had been controlling her problem with Botox injections every 6 months. She wanted a more permanent solution. I removed her sweat glands in her axilla using a special currette. She is now dry and no longer worries about dampness, odor or dry cleaning bills.
