How is Vaser better than BOTOX for reducing underarm sweat?

The use of Botox or Dysport as an underarm injection is expensive and only lasts 3-4 months. Vaser is permanent.

Is it safe?

Vaser is a safe, minimally invasive way to remove sweat glands lodged in the axillary fat.


What Causes Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis can be caused by a number of factors. There are two types of hyperhidrosis: primary and secondary. It occurs when a person’s nerve signals are triggering their sweat glands to be overactive. When this happens, the palms, underarms, face, and soles of the feet become sweaty. Primary hydrosis has no definitive cause, but it is genetic.

Secondary hyperhidrosis is caused by a medical condition, such as diabetes and thyroid issues. It is also possible for women going through menopause and people with nervous system problems to experience secondary hyperhidrosis. 

Is Botox a Safe Treatment For Hyperhidrosis?

Yes, Botox is a safe treatment for hyperhidrosis. If you opt for Botox injections, it can help block the nerves responsible for triggering the excessive sweating. You will, however, require multiple injections.

How Does Vaser Help Treat Hyperhidrosis?

As mentioned before, Vaser is a minimally invasive procedure. This means there are no incisions or injections involved during the treatment process. Vaser works by producing ultrasonic waves throughout the target area, which break up the sweat glands and fatty tissue. Once the Vaser treatment is complete, the tissue and sweat glands are gently suctioned out. 

What Are The Risks of Vaser?

Although Vaser is a fantastic way to treat hyperhidrosis, there are risks to be aware of. Knowing what risks are involved can help you make a definitive decision.

Below are the risks involved with Vaser:

  • Bleeding
  • Bruising
  • Scarring
