Axillary Gland Ablation

Many people suffer from bothersome sweating. If left untreated, it can be embarrassing—socially, functionally, and emotionally.

Historically, topical antiperspirants or oral medications have been recommended as the best treatment available. But now there’s another option: minimally invasive laser ablation of the axillary glands in the armpit area. This one-time, one-hour procedure is ideal for practitioners and patients who desire the best possible results with the least amount of downtime.²

Data Showing Longer-Lasting Results with Limited Downtime

Current procedures to treat bothersome sweating include invasive and noninvasive treatments, ranging from RF devices to Botox to targeted laser energy devices.

Many patients seeking the short-term results provided by Botox are unaware of the maintenance costs associated with this procedure. Laser energy devices, such as Cynosure’s PrecisionTx, offer longer lasting results with limited patient downtime.

Laser Energy and Absorption Coefficients

Based on the patient type and procedure selected, laser devices offer specific wavelengths that possess an affinity for unique chromophores (chromophores include hemoglobin, fat and water) and deliver energy to targeted tissue.
