Axillary Hyperhidrosis is the pathological excessive secretion of sweat from the axillary (armpit) sweat glands. Hyperhidrosis laser is the most advanced treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis, with permanent results.
Laser treatment of Hyperhidrosis
Smartlipo Laser is recommended for cases of axillary hyperhidrosis. It may be performed before or after a hyperhidrosis botox treatment, if the patient seeks permanent treatment of the problem.
Smartlipo achieves permanent treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis. The laser penetrates the area under the skin and inactivates the axillary sweat glands. The laser’s specific wavelength is selectively absorbed by the subcutaneous tissue of the armpit, where sweat glands are located. It inactivates them without affecting the surrounding tissues.
With hyperhidrosis laser we can achieve permanent treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis.
The hyperhidrosis laser treatment procedure is simple, painless and effective. Prior to the treatment, the areas are mapped with an iodine starch test and outlined with a marker.

As many as 2 sessions may be required to fully achieve this goal.
The entire process is performed at the office; it lasts 40 minutes and is painless.
