Excess armpit sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis) is a condition that can interfere with daily living and social interactions.  In the past, treatments have included invasive thoracic surgery or painful Botox injections.  There is a new treatment that uses a laser to heat the sweat glands found inside the skin.  This laser treatment can provide relief for many who suffer from this condition.

A recent description of the laser armpit sweating treatment was published by Dr. Brett Kotlus in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy, linked here. The treatment is done under local anesthesia and takes approximately 30 minutes.
