Some people tend to sweat a lot and at times it can become a problem for them. It is usually due to overactive sweat glands and the condition is known as hyperhidrosis. Typically treatments like Botox are used to provide temporary relief. Mostly, there is no permanent cure apart from surgery. Most people use Botox or oral medications to keep the issue at bay.
With the arrival of laser treatments, however, that has changed. The Fotona laser machine is used in order to treat the hyperhidrosis problem to a good effect. It is especially useful for hyperhidrosis in the under arms. The treatment is similar to any other laser treatment and is minimally invasive. Let’s learn more how this treatment can help you get rid of the problem permanently.
How does it work?
The treatment is pretty simple. The whole process is completed within a couple of hours. The area to be treated is coated with starch and iodine so that the exact locations of the sweat glands can be pinpointed. The next step is making a very small incision which allows the cannula with optical fiber tip is inserted.
The Nd:Yag laser beam is fired on to the sweat glands for the purpose of destroying them. The laser beams is used in very specific wavelengths to ensure that not only do they take down the glands but also not damage the skin nearby. A grating cannula is later used to remove the sweat glands that have been treated.
How to prepare for laser hyperhidrosis treatment?
•Stop intake of blood thinning medicines – Aspirin, ibuprofen and beta blockers etc. – a week before the procedure
•Avoid supplements such as fish liver oil and vitamin E during the last week prior to laser treatment
•Call it quits on smoking and consumption of alcohol three days prior to the procedure
•Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated
•Take a good sleep the night before laser hyperhidrosis treatment
•Do not apply lotion/cream/ makeup or antiperspirant before coming for the treatment
Is the treatment painful?
There is some pain involved since there is some invasiveness in this treatment. However, it is countered with the help of local anesthesia that is administered prior to the start of the treatment. The patient feels nothing during the treatment process.
•Slight swelling and redness may occur in treated areas
•Use cold compresses to counter any swelling or itchiness in the treated area
•Avoid blood thinners and supplements for another week after the procedure
•Take medications prescribed by the doctor, if any
•Sun exposure should be strictly avoided, this can irritate treatment sites
•Avoid applying cosmetic or skin irritants to the treated areas for a month
•Do not rub or scratch the treated areas
Side effects and downtime
Side effects are not very severe and can be managed with ease. Rest will be needed after the treatment. There is no downtime but a rest of a couple of days can surely help you recover very quickly.
