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.

What kind of anesthesia is best for liposuction?

anesthesia for liposuctionOne of the most common questions we receive in our office is “What type of anesthesia is best for liposuction?”

This is a very important question because there are a variety of options available for a variety of reasons, not all of which have safety and comfort at the top of the priority list. That’s not to say that the more expensive option is always the better option because that’s not always true, but your decision about which anesthesia method to select should not be based on price alone, nor should it be based on the myth that local anesthesia is always the safest method (this is also not always true). The best anesthesia for liposuction should provide a good balance between cost, comfort, safety, and affording your surgeon the ability to do the best job he can so you get the best result possible.

The best anesthesia method will allow all of the above to be possible, so there is no need to cut corners as long as you have the facts. Keep reading to learn more about the anesthesia options for liposuction and other cosmetic procedures…
