Excessive Sweating Treatment

Sweating for many people may be annoying but it generally does not interfere with their everyday lives. For some people, however, excessive sweating causes embarrassment and frustration. This common condition, known as hyperhidrosis, can result in excessive sweating in the underarm region (axillary hyperhidrosis) as well as the hands and feet. Advanced Aesthetics offers laser treatment for excessive underarm sweat in Idaho.

Candidates for Treatment

Candidates for laser treatment are women and men in Idaho with severe axillary hyperhidrosis that are looking for an alternative to topical treatments and surgical methods. At Advanced Aesthetics, Dr. Johnson can determine whether you qualify as a candidate for laser treatment.


Our laser treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis in Idaho is less invasive than surgical methods, and more effective than topical antiperspirants. Patients report that this procedure usually results in little discomfort.


A pulsed 1,064-nm Nd-YAG laser system is used to treat the area and a numbing solution is placed under the skin. The laser energy is conducted to the subcutaneous tissue through a fiber optic strand delivered through a small hollow cannula. The tip of the fiber optic strand is extended beyond the end of the cannula. This small, hollow cannula guides the laser beam at an angle, reaching the dermal/subdermal junction where the sweat glands are located. The procedure is repeated on both sides. To prevent discomfort, a cold gel dressing or air cooling system can be applied before, during, and after the procedure.

Recovery & Results

A small dressing is applied to the treated area for 24 hours following the laser treatment. Although a temporary decline in the sensitivity of the area can occur for a few weeks, the result is significant reduction in hyperhidrotic activity.
