Sweating Treatments

Laser sweat reduction is an innovative technique for the permanent reduction of excess armpit sweating, also known as Axillary Hyperhidrosis. Using a procedure very similar to laser liposuction we can target the sweat glands of the armpit. During this minor procedure we use a fine cannula to deliver a safe, powerful laser to separate the layers of skin and reduce the number of active sweat glands.

  • Permanently reduces sweating by 50-70%
  • Immediate results
  • Minimally invasive and
  • Low downtime

How does laser sweat reduction work?

A 3mm cannula containing a laser optical fibre is inserted just under the skin. Our doctor slowly guides the laser through the treatment area. The layers of fat are separated by the laser which exposes the sweat glands. These can then be removed from the body using a light suction device. Due to the small size of the cannula, scarring and recovery time are kept minimal and as the procedure is performed under local anaesthetic, clients are able to leave the clinic within 30 minutes of the procedure. A compression garment is supplied and recommended to be worn for 2 weeks after treatment.

Is laser sweat reduction safe?

Yes, all the instruments used are blunt and the heat from the laser coagulates the blood vessels which reduces bruising normally associated with other methods of removing sweat glands.

How long does laser sweat reduction take?

The treatment takes between 1 and 3 hours.

When will I notice a reduction in sweating?

A reduction will be noticed instantly. Final results will be apparent at 2-4 weeks.
