Today we saw one of our patients 6 weeks after his LSA (Laser Sweat Ablation) at The Whiteley Clinic.
The patient is a 39 year old man who had suffered from very severe armpit sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis) all of his adult life (see picture above). He underwent LSA at The Whiteley Clinic in early December 2010.
10 days after his operation, he came back with an infection - and was prescribed antibiotics. After that , the healing continued to improve without problem. Today - 6 weeks later - he is sweat free (see second picture above).
When measured, he had reduced his sweat volume by 97% on the right and 95% on the left.
The patient told us in his own words:
"I don't sweat at all now. I have been to 5 job interviews since the operation - usually I get out of the interview and am drenched. I usually have to go home and shower and change straight away. Since having the LSA, I came out of each interview and as completely dry!!".
When asked if he was happy, the patient said:
"It was the best decision I ever made to have this done!"
