Clammy Hands? Feel Confident Again with Axillary Gland Ablation

If you never shake hands with other people because your skin always feels clammy or sweaty, you may have a condition called hyperhidrosis.

Heripsime Ohanian, PhD, MD, understands how embarrassing persistently clammy hands can be. Dr. Ohanian offers minimally invasive treatments at Bergen Aesthetics that not only relieve your symptoms but also address the underlying cause of hyperhidrosis.

How hyperhidrosis affects your hands

The hallmark symptom of hyperhidrosis is abnormal and excessive sweating, even when you’re cool and relaxed.

Normally, your body sweats in response to heat and helps you cool down quickly to prevent health complications. When you have hyperhidrosis, the nerves that trigger your sweat glands are too sensitive and cause your body to sweat even when you’re not overheated.

When you are physically active or anxious, your body may produce even more sweat, and you’re likely negatively impacted by the resulting sweat stains and the increase in body odor.

The extra-sensitive nerves controlling your sweat glands may be triggered by:

It’s also possible that your hyperhidrosis is the result of no identifiable, underlying cause.

Regardless of what’s causing your hyperhidrosis, Dr. Ohanian can use laser energy to treat overstimulated nerves in the sweat glands during a procedure known as axillary gland ablation.

Axillary gland ablation to stop excessive sweating

Axillary gland ablation is a laser treatment that targets the sweat glands that are producing too much sweat. Dr. Ohanian uses the PrecisionTx® laser system that’s powerful enough to destroy sweat glands without harming surrounding tissue.

This laser treatment eliminates excessive sweating at the source within just an hour. Destroyed sweat glands can no longer produce sweat, and you won’t need to undergo invasive surgery as part of your treatment.

Instead, the laser energy penetrates through your skin to reach your sweat glands, so there are no resulting scars and no recovery period required after treatment.

The many benefits of axillary gland ablation

The PrecisionTx laser system works quickly to destroy sweat glands during an in-office procedure. After your treatment is complete, you can go home to relax and should be able to resume your usual activities soon after.

Other benefits of axillary gland ablation include:

Minimal side effects

Axillary gland ablation causes minimal side effects, with many people experiencing only some mild soreness in the treatment areas that goes away without additional treatment.

Long-lasting results

Because the ablation destroys the root cause of your excessive sweating, you can enjoy the immediate and long-lasting benefits of your treatment. You won’t have to worry about trying to cover up excess perspiration or body odor before going out socially, and you’ll be happy to shake hands without fear of embarrassment.

Customized treatments

Dr. Ohanian customizes individual treatment plans using the PrecisionTx laser technology to maximize your results. Once she treats your sweat glands, you won’t need to schedule any additional treatments or follow-up visits to maintain your results.

If you’re looking for a nonsurgical solution for clammy hands or excessive sweating, schedule an evaluation with Dr. Ohanian by calling Bergen Aesthetics or by requesting an appointment through the online booking system.
