Marshfield, MA – Dr. Edwin Ishoo of Boston Cosmetic Surgery Center is pioneering the use of the Smartlipo Triplex system to treat axillary hyperhidrosis in New England. The technologically advanced system is intended to provide a gentle, minimally invasive and permanent alternatives for treatment of excessive underarm sweating, a medical condition known as “severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis”.
Approximately 1.4% of the population or about 4 million people in the U.S. are affected by significant excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), usually involving the palms, the armpits, the soles of the feet, and sometimes the face. Axillary hyperhidrosis is a common but difficult-to-treat medical condition with major social, labor, and emotional consequences affecting work productivity, daily activities, emotional well-being and personal relationships. Clothing becomes damp and unsightly and must be changed several times a day. Wet skin folds are prone to irritating rashes. Because of this problem, people often shun social contact.
Generally antiperspirants are the first-line treatments for hyperhidrosis, but these frequently fail. Up until now, one of the only minimally invasive procedures to help stop sweating was through the use of Botox®, which blocks the nerves that controls sweating. However as new nerves grow back, the sweating begins again and at up to $1500 per set of injections, this can be a costly process. In contrast, Dr. Edwin Ishoo’s technique, the Laser-assisted Axillary Sweat Termination (L.A.S.T) method, uses the Smartlipo Triplex to destroy and remove the sweat glands from the armpits. Without sweat glands no sweat is produced in the area thus the excessive sweating is stopped for good. L.A.S.T. costs around $2000 and is a permanent solution for around 80% of patients and usually there is no need of repeating the procedure permanently.
The L.A.S.T. method using the Smartlipo Triplex Laser offered exclusively at the Boston Cosmetic Surgery Center, destroys and removes most of the underarm sweat glands and is the most effective and gentle method of permanent treatment of excessive underarm sweating. Dr. Edwin Ishoo states “The procedure is done under local anesthesia in our office. Downtime is very limited and risks are very rare. Treatment can be a tremendous and immediate improvement in your lifestyle and transform your life if you are affected by this condition”.
“Boston Cosmetic Surgery Center is committed to bringing innovative and progressive techniques such as the Laser-assisted Axillary Sweat Termination using Smart Lipo™ Triplex to provide safe and affordable services with superior results,” said Dr. Edwin Ishoo, founder of Boston Cosmetic Surgery Center.
