The average person produces 1 ml of sweat in an hour. Others suffer from a condition called hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes a person to produce more sweat than the average person. The condition can worsen for some as they become older. The condition is prevalent in both men and women. People with the condition can produce as much as three times the normal amount in an hour.
Some people experiment with stronger deodorants to manage the condition. Others may wear armpit sweat pads to control the excessive sweating. A person can have botox injections administered or have their sweat glands surgically removed with laser surgery.
How does underarm laser surgery work?
The laser is used to treat the soft tissue and reduce the amount of liquid produced in the sweat glands. The laser removes the sweat glands completely. The sweat glands are removed by a process called vaporization, a process that burns the glands. Once the surgery is performed, the incision site is allowed to properly drain.
What can patients expect with laser surgery?
Patients can expect to have dryer underarms as a result of the procedure. Within days, the person will have completely recovered from the simple procedure. Very few complications are reported by patients who have had the laser surgery. The procedure produces no significant scarring. Patients are instructed to avoid shaving or wearing deodorant for several days. Within six months, the patient can begin to see a noticeable improvement in the amount of sweat produced.
When a patient has experimented with heavy deodorants and has seen no improvement in their underarm sweat problems, the laser surgery may be beneficial. The minimally invasive procedure has been performed on many patients successfully with no complications.

Treatment for hyperhidrosis primarily focuses on reducing excessive sweating. Methods can range from prescription antiperspirants to surgical interventions. Non-invasive treatments like Botox injections temporarily block nerve signals that trigger sweat glands, offering relief for several months.
The longevity of treatment effects can vary. For instance, Botox injections may offer relief from excessive sweating for around 6 to 12 months, while surgical solutions could provide more permanent results. Ongoing maintenance treatments are often required for optimal benefits.
There is evidence to suggest that hyperhidrosis can run in families, indicating a possible genetic component. However, not everyone with a family history of excessive sweating will necessarily develop the condition.
Recovery time varies depending on the treatment method. Non-invasive options like Botox usually have minimal to no downtime, while surgical methods may require a few days to weeks of recovery.
