AXILLARY HYPERHIDROSIS TREATMENT REVISITED
Treatment for excessive underarm sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is now possible through a cutting-edge procedure utilized by Dr. Obi and is available exclusively at our Jacksonville plastic surgery center.
Since employing this unique treatment for excessive underarm sweating, Dr. Lewis Obi has developed a unique population of new patients in the area of axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating from the armpit) with a high degree of success.
The axillary hyperhidrosis treatments may be performed with local anesthesia and with minimal downtime. Dr. Obi learned of this new application last year while presenting at an Advanced Symposium in New York City with fellow faculty member Dr. Afschin Fatemi from Germany. Dr Fatemi has the largest population of patients and he reports significant improvement in 90% of patients after one hyperhidrosis treatment. Only the SlimLipo laser platform has exhibited this degree of success with treating excessive underarm sweating and is less expensive long term than the use of Botox injections. Botox has been the main solution for hyperhidrosis treatments in the past.
