Treatment for Excess Sweating

Many patients have a genetic tendency to sweat excessively from the underarms. The glands that secrete perspiration are located in the lower part of the skin and upper part of the fatty layer. Liposuction of this area can reduce the quantity of these glands and significantly decrease sweating. This procedure is particularly effective for people who have tried prescription deodorants, Botox, Xeomin, and other treatments without success. Best of all, the results of liposuction of the underarms are usually long lasting. Another alternative is the new MiraDry technique which uses microwave energy to melt sweat glands. Drs.William and Patrick Coleman were part of the research team which developed this procedure.
