Vaser® Ultrasound Technology: A Breakthrough Solution For Excessive Perspiration
It’s summer time and a little perspiration is to be expected. But for between 1 – 2% of us, perspiration isn’t only a nuisance related to warm weather or physical activity. Instead, it’s a constant struggle against embarrassing telltale shirt stains, sweaty handshakes and odor. If your choice of clothing hinges on what does and doesn’t camouflage perspiration spots and when anti-perspirants and deodorants provide minimal if any relief, you owe it to yourself to consider the only permanent solution for excessive sweating - VASER® ultrasound technology.
Excessive sweating is a medical condition known as hyperhidrosis. Wikipedia defines the condition as being characterized by abnormally increased perspiration in excess of that required for regulation of body temperature and it has a multitude of causes ranging from genetics and anxiety to menopause. But regardless of the cause, hyperhidrosis has a profound impact on the professional and social aspects of life.
Prescription strength anti-perspirants have a short-lived and sometimes negligible impact on hyperhidrosis. Botox offers relief by disabling the sweat glands, but the results last less than a year and can be expensive over time. Pharmaceuticals are an option, but the side effects can be relatively severe and unpleasant. But now thanks to a breakthrough laser technology, hyperhidrosis can be treated with permanent and life-changing results.
Laser sweat ablation is an unprecedented state-of-the-art treatment for hyperhidrosis. The in-office procedure is performed under local anesthesia. The process involves making a 3mm incision in which a laser or VASER® is passed directly underneath the skin to destroy the sweat glands. The difference between a laser and the VASER® is that laser uses light to destroy the sweat glands, while the VASER® uses ultrasound. The risks are extremely minimal, post-procedure discomfort is manageable lasting for a just a few days and most clients return to work and normal activity the following day.
It wasn’t too long ago that Botox was met with skepticism and lasers were kept in the context of sci-fi and spy movies. But as the science of beauty and medical technology progresses, conditions like hyperhidrosis can be easily treated with permanent results. Today, a life-long problem with excessive sweating can be solved quickly, affordably and safely.
Your inner beauty simply can’t stay hidden any longer.
