Vaser for axillary hyperhidrosis

Dr Jacobus A. Vlok at Liposuction International uses VASER® ultrasonic technology to help patients, both men and women who have problems with excessive underarm sweating. This disorder is called Axillary Hyperhydrosis.

If you suffer from excessive underarm sweating you are not alone. While sweating is normal and necessary to keep the body cool, excessive sweating in public can be an uncomfortable nuisance. Severe underarm sweating, axillary hyperhydrosis, can affect how you dress and what activities you feel comfortable doing. Contact Liposuction International to learn more about this treatment option.

The Vaser® Procedure

First, the underarm area is filled with a special saline solution (tumescence fluid) that helps numb the site and shrink the blood vessels (to minimise bruising). This solution wets and fills the area to be treated, making it easier to break up tissue with the VASER System’s ultrasonic energy. Then a small probe is inserted. This transmits sound energy (similar to that used for cataract removal from the eye) to break up fatty tissue and mobile the sweat glands on contact. With the application of a specialized technique, the ultrasonic energy is concentrated on the sweat glands in the armpit while preserving other tissues. Finally, the liquefied fat and sweat glands are removed through a gentle suction process designed to target the sweat glands

The Vaser treatment does not eliminate all of the sweat glands under the arms (there are millions), however it will eliminate the majority resulting in a more “normal” pattern of sweat rather than an excessive pattern of sweat.

The Recovery Period

After the treatment, some patients experience pain for about three days and require paracetamol or prescription pain medication. Others do not require any pain medication at all. Some lumpiness might develop; it always subsides after a few weeks.
