Axillary hyperhidrosis сorrection

Axillary hyperhidrosis – a physiological condition characterized by excessive sweating underarms.Often, this condition needs to be corrected only when there are social prerequisites for this: fear of appearing in public in a warm time of year because of the visible wet circles on clothing, odor, leading to social isolation and lack of confidence.Axillary hyperhidrosis is sometimes combined with excessive sweating of the palms and soles of the feet. Typically, this condition does not cause any pathological processes, but in obese people could lead to specific complications – erythrasma (skin infection). There are several ways to get rid of this problem: Dysport (but this is a temporary solution to the problem – 2-3 months); Endoscopic thoracoscopic sympathectomy – a surgical violation of the innervation of apocrine glands (effective method , but has the side effect of excessive sweating of other areas of the body); and surgical curettage of the axillary regions. This method is most effective and absolutely safe with no side effects. The result is an extremely long-term. Can be combined with liposuction armpits
