Laser Treatment for Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

There are several treatments available for excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, but most require several sessions to achieve an acceptable level of sweat reduction, and few offer permanent results.

A 924nm laser fiber can be used to permanently reduce the number of hyperactive sweat glands in the same way that it reduces the number fat cells during laser liposuction procedures. This is why you may sometimes see this procedure referred to as “SweatLipo”. There is no actual liposuction involved in treating excessive sweating, but the laser fiber that is used can be the same or similar in both procedures. We use the SLIM Laser platform at MAS, and have had excellent results with a procedure that is quick, comfortable, and has essentially no downtime.
