Laser Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Sweating is a highly natural and healthy process that allows your body to maintain its temperature. However, some people tend to sweat excessively, and at times it can become a problem for them. It is usually due to overactive sweat glands, and this condition is known as hyperhidrosis. Generally, oral medications or clinical procedures, like Botox, help in treating excessive sweating. But these treatments only provide temporary relief from this embarrassing condition. Laser Hyperhidrosis Treatment in Dubai is an effective treatment that allows more permanent results for getting rid of over-sweating.

Earlier it was believed that there is no permanent cure for overactive sweat glands apart from surgery. However, this notion has changed with the arrival of laser treatments. Nowadays, different laser treatments, such as the Fotona Laser, are used for effectively treating hyperhidrosis. It is beneficial for excessive underarm sweating.

The Laser Hyperhidrosis Treatment is similar to any other laser treatment and is minimally invasive. Let’s learn more about how this treatment can help you get rid of the problem permanently.

The Procedure


The procedure of Hyperhidrosis Treatment in Dubai is quite simple and quick. Generally, the entire procedure completes within a couple of hours.

Below, we have mentioned the entire procedure step-by-step:

  • Firstly, the treatment area is coated with starch and iodine so that the exact locations of the sweat glands can be pinpointed.
  • After that, a tiny incision will be made that allows the insertion of the cannula with an optical fiber tip.
  • Then, the Nd:YAG laser beam is fired onto the sweat glands to destroy them.
  • The laser beams are used in particular wavelengths to ensure that they only target the sweat glands and leave the nearby skin and tissues intact.
  • After that, a grating cannula is used to remove the sweat glands that have been treated.
  • Lastly, the small incision is bandaged carefully, and the patient is allowed to go back home.

Post-Procedural Care

Although Laser Hyperhidrosis Treatment is not a surgical procedure, patients still need to perform post-procedural care. Due to this, they will get better results.

Below, we have mentioned some general aftercare guidelines:

  • Slight swelling, itching, and redness may occur in treated areas that are generally treated using cold compresses.
  • Avoid blood thinners and supplements for at least a week after the procedure.
  • Only take medications prescribed by the doctor.

  • Avoid applying cosmetic or skin irritants to the treated areas for at least a month.

Hyperhidrosis Treatment FAQs

What causes hyperhidrosis?

There are several causes of hyperhidrosis. Primary hyperhidrosis is caused when the nerves responsible for signaling sweat glands become overactive. It becomes worse due to stress and nervousness. Secondary hyperhidrosis occurs due to medical conditions and is less common. It is usually caused due to diabetes, menopause, thyroid, low blood sugar, cardiac problems, infections, nervous system disorders, etc.

How do I get rid of hyperhidrosis permanently?

Different treatments are available for treating hyperhidrosis. However, not all of them provide permanent results. Laser Hyperhidrosis Treatment in Dubai can help you get rid of excessive sweating permanently.

Which laser machine is used for sweating treatment?

The Nd:YAG laser beam used for Laser Hair Removal or hair bleaching is also used for hyperhidrosis treatment. But the key to the success of the procedure lies in the selection of the wavelength. Generally, a fixed combination of 924 nm and 975 nm continuous wave laser energy is used for treating hyperhidrosis.

Is the treatment painful?

There is some pain involved since there is some invasiveness in this treatment. However, it is countered with the help of local anesthesia that is administered before starting the treatment. The patient feels nothing during the procedure because the treatment area is numbed.

How much does hyperhidrosis treatment cost?

There is no fixed cost of Hyperhidrosis Treatment in Dubai.
