Hyperhidrosis Treatment Buffalo, NY

Why You Don’t Need to Sweat the Small Stuff: Vaser for Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis Treatment Buffalo, NY With summer just about here, you probably have a list of things you want to do; go on some new hikes, try some new places for brunch, spend time by the pool, and have some friends over for a barbecue may be a few of the fun things that you have at the top of your list. And although all of those things are fun, if you suffer from a condition like hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating— all of those fun scenarios can suddenly turn into something a bit more embarrassing. Here at our office, Dr. Jack Bertolino and his staff have got you covered with a treatment called Vaser.

What’s Vaser?

Vaser initially gained popularity as a body contouring procedure. However, here at our office, we use it for more than just body contouring— we use it to treat patients with hyperhidrosis. Vaser uses ultrasound technology to break up unwanted fatty sweat gland tissues that contribute to your excessive and incessant sweating. Once the fat has been broken up, it is liquefied and then sucked out with a device called a cannula.

Why Not Just Get Botox?

You may be surprised to learn that Botox is another alternative to treat hyperhidrosis. Botox works to temporarily block the nerve signals that stimulate your sweat glands. And although Botox can be effective in treating hyperhidrosis, the only problem is that it’s temporary whereas Vaser is permanent.

If it seems like you are constantly having to change your shirt because of excessive sweat or if you get embarrassed all of the time by the amount of sweat you have on your clothes, then you may have a condition called hyperhidrosis. Luckily, Dr. Jack Bertolino can help you find permanent relief from this condition so that you can live a more normal, confident life.

Hyperhidrosis Treatment Buffalo, NY

Get Rid of Excessive Sweating

Hyperhidrosis Treatment Buffalo, NY Sweating after running a big race or taking a spinning class is one thing, but excessive sweating for no rhyme or reason may be due to a condition called hyperhidrosis. Not only is hyperhidrosis embarrassing, but it can be a nuisance as well. If you suffer from excessive sweating— especially under your arms—  you are not alone. In fact, it is estimated that around 2-3% of Americans suffer from this conditions. Luckily, we have a solution for you.

How Can Hyperhidrosis Be Treated?

Hyperhidrosis can be treated with a variety of treatments including Botox, but here at our office, Dr. Jack Bertolino likes to use a treatment called Vaser. To start out, we will fill the underarm area with a saline solution which numbs the area and shrinks the blood vessels. Then, a small Vaser probe will release sound technology into the sweat gland tissues to destroy them while also breaking up unwanted fatty tissues without damaging surrounding tissues. Once the probe is injected, the fat liquefies and dissolves into a tumescent solution. After which, small cannulas are inserted through a small incision to help remove the sweat gland and fat which reduces sweating.

Why Get Vaser Instead of Botox?

Although Botox is effective, it only lasts about 3-4 months on average. The biggest benefit of Vaser is that it’s permanent, which means you won’t have to worry about scheduling Botox injections every couple of months.

Does Vaser Hurt?

Scrub-a-Dub: Why Exfoliating Is Important

PearlYou know that one of the biggest no-no’s in the skincare industry is going to bed with makeup on your face because it causes breakouts. And although you may be aware of some basic skin care tips and recommendations, make sure that you don’t forget to exfoliate. Whether you choose to use an exfoliating face scrub, mask, or get a skin care treatment done by Dr. Jack Bertolino at Smooth Solutions, there’s one thing that’s worth talking about: the benefits.

It Can Breathe

Even though your heart, lungs, and the lady at church are likely the first things that come to mind when you hear the term “organ,” your skin is actually the largest organ on your body. As such, it’s important that you ensure that it can breathe properly. As dead skin builds up and dry patches form, however, it can make it harder for your skin to breathe— which is where properly exfoliating comes into play. By helping you get rid of dry, chapped skin, exfoliating is one of the best ways to improve oxygen flow and help your skin breathe.

It’s Clearer

Everyone is prone to getting a pimple or two at least every so often— if not more. One of the best ways to fight blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples? With an exfoliator. By getting rid of trapped dirt, germs, and bacteria on your skin, exfoliating can helps stabilize the oil production on your skin and get rid of that acne.

It Helps Moisturize

If you are spending hundreds of dollars on skincare products, but you aren’t properly exfoliating, your moisturizer isn’t going to be able to penetrate your skin. By getting rid of dry, chapped skin, exfoliating helps your moisturizer reach into the layers of your skin and hydrate it from the inside out.

Here at our office, we offer a variety of exfoliating skincare solutions including exfoliators and treatments. To schedule your consultation, call 716) 633-6100.
