A great little sundress is a summertime staple for the fashion savvy. But the right look can quickly go all wrong if the summer’s heat causes you to sweat excessively.
A moderate amount of controllable sweat actually is a good thing. It’s a healthy body’s way of cooling itself on hot days, during exercise or while experiencing anxiety. But for the nearly three million Americans who suffer a medical condition called hyperhidrosis, underarm sweating goes far beyond normal levels, leading to potentially embarrassing situations.
Though Northeast Florida’s hot summertime temperatures drive sweating in anyone, hyperhidrosis can hit at any time in any situation without any of the triggers involved in normal sweating, such as anxiety, anger, fear, etc. It can happen even when a sufferer is calm, at rest and in a cool spot, and affects not just the armpits, but hands and feet as well. Doctors are unsure what causes hyperhidrosis, though there is some research-based indication that it may be hereditary. It’s that unpredictability that proves particularly troubling. Plus, even doubling up on conventional sweat control tactics like wearing extra-strength antiperspirants offers little or no relief.
Fortunately, if you suffer hyperhidrosis, help is available, and the source may surprise you. SlimLipo Laser Liposuction is a patented cosmetic procedure that uses dual wavelengths of laser light to melt fat and tighten skin, giving patients a slimmer, smoother look with little downtime. But research shows that SlimLipo offers another benefit – controlling hyperhidrosis.
In studies using the SlimLipo platform, 91 percent of patients experienced a significant reduction in axillary sweating after a single laser treatment, and nearly all of them reported a drastic and permanent reduction with just two treatments. Delivered via a tiny incision, the patented SlimLipo laser gently and permanently closes sweat glands, eliminating their ability to secrete perspiration.
Imagine spending days out and about with friends or nights out on the town without having to worry about impending embarrassment. No more constantly checking for wet spots on your clothing or incessantly wiping your hands. Hyperhidrosis treatment with SlimLipo can free you from excessive sweating and the anxiety that goes with it for good.
