LSA on TV - Patient has 96% reduction in under arm sweating

Regular readers of The Whiteley Clinic blog and Facebook will know that before Christmas, a young man was filmed having LSA for under-arm sweating (Axillary Hyperhidrosis) at The Whiteley Clinic -

96% reduction in under-arm sweating after treatment with Whiteley LSA cannula
Operation filmed for TV by Maverick

The LSA operation was performed by Professor Mark Whiteley using the patented Whiteley LSA cannula. The patient came back for his post operative follow up this Friday.

Sweat testing showed that he had a 96% reduction of sweating from his arm-pits.

He says it has revolutionised his life - he doesn't sweat at all now unless he goes for a run or plays sport.

Hopefully his story will be on TV later this year.

New Year - New Clothes. Arm-pit sweating cured by LSA

This 39 year old lady who had always suffered from severe arm-pit sweating underwent LSA in November 2013.

She had previously tried all sorts of sprays and roll-ons - but to no avail.

The Minor's starch and iodine test showed severe sweating distributed in the arm-pit (see picture above). Volumetric testing was performed measuring the volume of sweat in 1 hour.

8 weeks after LSA - no sweat at all is found on the Minor's test
Volumetric testing showed a 90% reduction in sweating
 Eight weeks after LSA using the Whiteley LSA Cannula, and the patient was thrilled with the result.

She was able to wear all sorts of clothes that she hadn't been able to wear before.

Under-arm sweating cured in time for Christmas - new wardrobe requested from Santa

A 24 year old lady has asked for nothing but new clothes for Christmas having had her under-arm sweating cured by LSA at The Whiteley Clinic - just in time for Christmas.

Patient asks for new clothes for Christmas!
Having suffered from under-arm sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis) for years, this patient had been stuck wearing a very limited wardrobe .... black, white and jumpers to cover the wet stains.
On 1st November 2013 she had LSA performed by Professor Mark Whiteley under local anaesthetic at The Whiteley Clinic.
The recovery wasn't perfect - with a wound infection needing antibiotics.
However, 6 weeks later the arm-pits are dry and the patient has a new lease of life.
When she had the final sweat test (above) showing the massive reduction in under-arm sweating, she said "All I've asked for, for Christmas is new clothes. I can't wait to wear all of the clothes that I haven't been able to over the last years because of my sweating".

LSA completely changed my life - hyperhidrosis cured

Patient C - 25-year-old male:

Testimonial received November 2013

"The (laser) sweat ablation procedure has completely changed my life. I cannot thank Dr Whiteley and his team and for their help.

Before the procedure my everyday life was dictated by my condition (hyperhidrosis). I would constantly worry about large patches appearing under my arms and this heavily restricted me in my choice of clothing. In every social situation, and even five minutes after a shower, my armpits would produce monumental amount of sweat, and I suffered in silence for nearly 10 years. You paragraph after trying prescription deodorants, plus laura of sprays, medication and Botox my problem still persisted.

The (laser) sweat ablation procedure performed has eradicated my problem. I now no longer even have to think about what to wear or check my armpits the patches. I only wish I'd had this procedure performed years ago!

I cannot thank you enough and will be eternally grateful for improving my life."

Patient had LSA (Laser Sweat Ablation) performed by Professor Mark Whiteley in Summer 2013.
