Miradry much better and non-invasive!

Our office specializes in Miraday. Miradry just got FDA clearance for elimination of all hair colors under the arm. It also has clearance for the elimination of underarm sweating and odor. Much cheaper than botox and permanent.

I would recommend Cellulaze for hyperhidrosis

several experienced plastic surgeons, including myself, have had excellent results in treating excessive armpit sweating with the cellulaze laser by Cynosure. there is 1-2 very small incisions (2-3 mm) per armpit. it takes about 30 minutes to perform and you can go to work the next day. it is too early to say if it is truly permanent but there are follow ups now that have shown it to last over 3 years.

Hyperhidrosis effect

The effects of treatment with the Cellulaze Sidelaze laser for the armpits are imediate.  One week of post op swellling and mild discomfort are the discomforts.  The procedure lasts one hour under local anesthesia

Move Over to miraDry ! miraDry is a Better Option than Suction Curettage or SmartLipo for Underarm Hyperhidrosis

miraDry has supplanted these prcedures and is FDA approved and uses no incisions and there is no scarring in the underarms as in suction curettage or SMART Lipo. miraDry is highly effective for underarm sweating.

Laser Lipo for Hyperhidrosis

SLIM lipo has been used successfully to treat hyperhidrosis recently int he US.  It is new but a safe procedure. The length of effect is noted to be extensive but still being evaluated. Please stay tuned for updates!

There seems to be some anecdotal evidence to support the use of laser lipo in the armpits to reduce sweating. 

i am not certain of the success and percentage of decrease in sweating but if it works it would cost alot less than botox.
