Excessive sweating and odor after laser hair removal treatment?

Sweating After Laser Hair Removal
This is not common. It may have been caused by the sweat glands being over stimulated with the treatment. This can be controlled with Botox. I recommend seeing an expert to have this evaluated. Best of Luck!
Excessive Sweating Solutions with Botox
This is unusual, it may be that the sweat glands were over-stimulated with treatment. Excessive sweating can be controlled with Botox or clycopyrolate. Multiple areas may require nervous system surgical treatment. Please see an expert for evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer
My sweating after LHR smells worse
I don't see how this occurred. However, there are ways to treat excessive sweating. A temporary but effective treatment is with Botox injections. For long term control, I use the Infini. It takes about 2 treatments for the Infini to work well.

It may be that the laser that was used for hair removal stimulated the apocrine glands in the area and caused them to go into high gear. These glands can be treated with periodic injections of Botox or can be permanently treated with a minimally invasive procedure with a laser. I use the Precision Tx 1440 nm wavelength through one tiny incision under each arm. The procedure takes about half an hour and is done under local anesthesia. It has been very successful. Good luck to you with this issue.
