Hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating, is a problem experienced by many. Up until recently, excessive sweating has been managed by certain medications, antiperspirants, and even surgery. However, Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego is proud to offer a new, non-invasive treatment option for the management of axillary (underarm) hyperhidrosis—Ultherapy!
How Does Ulthera Treat Excessive Sweating?
A laser treatment originally developed to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin to promote collagen growth from ultra-sound waves, non-invasive Ultherapy has been hailed recently as one of the best treatments for underarm sweating.
Ulthera can permanently reduce the amount of perspiration excreted from a patients underarms in as little as two treatments. The treatment works by targeting the overactive sweat glands found in the underarms with ultra-sound energy. This in turn greatly reduces the amount of perspiration a person experiences. An Ulthera treatment for hyperhidrosis can be performed by a board certified dermatologist in as little as forty minutes under local anesthesia at our office in San Diego. The best part about the treatment—no one will know you’ve had anything done, and there is virtually zero recovery time!
