Sweating is a natural process that helps regulate body temperature, but excessive sweating in the underarms can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. You’re not alone if you avoid specific clothing or social situations because of sweaty underarms.
Many people suffer from this common condition, which is medically known as axillary hyperhidrosis. Fortunately, several effective treatments are available to help manage sweaty underarms and improve your quality of life. Let’s explore the causes of sweaty underarms and discuss some treatment options available.
Various factors can cause excessive sweating under the armpit. Here are some of the most common causes:
BTX is a treatment used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face, but did you know it can also reduce excessive sweating in the underarm area? Known medically as hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating can be uncomfortable and embarrassing, but BTX injections can effectively reduce the amount of sweat produced by the body in this area.
It works by blocking the signals that are sent from the nerves to the sweat glands, preventing them from producing sweat. This effect can last for several months with no downtime!
So how does the treatment work? The procedure involves a series of small injections of BTX into the underarm area, administered by a qualified medical professional. The process is relatively quick and painless; most patients can return to normal activities immediately afterward.
It is important to note that BTX is a temporary solution; repeat treatments will be required to maintain the effects. However, many patients find that the benefits are well worth the investment, with reduced sweating and body odor leading to increased confidence and comfort in social situations.
Micro-needling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure involving tiny needles to puncture the skin and stimulate collagen production. While it is typically used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, it can also help reduce underarm sweating.
Micro-needling helps to reduce underarm sweating by targeting the sweat glands with tiny punctures. These punctures trigger the body’s natural healing process and stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin in the area. This process can help to shrink the sweat glands and reduce the amount of sweat produced.
The procedure is relatively painless and typically takes less than an hour to complete. A numbing cream is applied to the underarm area to minimize discomfort. After the treatment, the underarms may be slightly red and swollen, but these side effects typically subside within a few days. Multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired results, and the effects may last several months to a year.
Other than sweaty and smelly underarms, what if you have dark underarms? Pico laser is a solution to it!
Pico laser is a non-invasive treatment and safe procedure that targets the dark pigmentation in your underarm area. Pico laser is known for effectively targeting pigment without overheating the skin. This is because of its ultra-short pulse duration and high-speed laser shockwave, which shatters the pigment while minimizing energy conversion into heat. This reduces the risk of the pigment flaring up under heat. Additionally, the Pico laser allows more laser shots to be delivered in time, resulting in a more effective treatment per session.
To get brighter underarms with Pico laser, you must undergo a series of sessions, typically 4-6 treatments about 4-6 weeks apart. The number of treatments required will depend on the severity of the pigmentation and your skin’s response to the treatment.
After the treatment, you may experience mild redness, but these side effects typically subside within a few hours to a few days. It would be best to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen on the treated area to prevent further pigmentation.
