Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
While sweating is a normal and necessary body function, excessive underarm sweating can be embarrassing. Always having a sweaty shirt is embarrassing and a nuisance. This condition of excessive sweating is called hyperhidrosis, and there are treatments available.
Injectables are available for non-surgical treatments. BOTOX Cosmetic is approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to treat hyperhidrosis. Also, Dysport, another botulinum toxin, is often used to treat excessive sweating. These will require multiple injections in the underarm areas in a single appointment. Both of these injectable treatments are temporary and last up to one year.
However, Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Dean Fardo, now offers another treatment to permanently decrease excessive underarm sweating. Dr. Fardo comments, “We have seen success with the patients coming to us for this condition, and we’ve decided to expand this procedure offering a real resource for people dealing with excessive sweating.”
Dr. Fardo utilizes ultrasound technology as an alternative to traditional liposuction because the ultrasonic energy helps stop the sweat glands from excessive secretion.
Using the ultrasonic energy, the fat deposits and sweat glands in the armpits are destroyed. This controlled damage to the sweat glands eliminates their ability to produce excessive sweat.
“The results of the ultrasound treatment are immediate and are often permanent, “says Dr. Fardo. “We have many patients who have had years of frustration dealing with this condition and leave our offices very happy knowing they won’t have to always think about their sweating and always have extra shirts with them. It’s just a relief and an improvement to quality of life.”
