Introduction

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can be a stressful condition that may lead to tremendous social embarrassment. When conservative treatments such as antiperspirants, medications, and botulinum toxin are only temporarily effective, there is a new minimally invasive surgical treatment provided in our San Antonio office. Past surgical treatment options using gland excision or liposuction have a long recovery time and complications that most would consider to be unacceptable for the treatment of sweating and odor. However, a new technique is now being offered by Dr. Nielson called Sub-Dermal Laser Ablation (SDLA®).

Underam Sweating.  Patient from Dallas, TX.
Before
Severe Armpit Sweat.
After
