Possibilities with surgical intervention
Minimally invasive treatment
Botulinum toxin A (Botox)
Botulinomtoxin A is a naturally occurring bacterial protein. However, it is also a neurotoxin.
Botox helps with underarm sweating and reduces it for a few months because it inhibits the stimulation of the sweat glands. Depending on the frequency of use, the injections have to be repeated every 4-9 months.
Not for me. I don't want to be injected with a poison under my skin. Laulas® anti-sweat shirt was invented for exactly this reason. Not to prevent the natural flow of sweat. It is an important cooling function for our body! But the embarrassing sweat stains are completely prevented by laulas®.
Without interfering with our body
Endoscopic transthoracic sympathectomy
Surgical transection of the nerves responsible for the circulation of sweat.
Local sweat gland excision
Removal of the affected area of skin together with the sweat glands.
Liposuction - suction of the sweat glands
A tried and tested option with specialised doctors. But where should the sweat come from then? Again, the danger of compensatory sweating on the back or face? Again, I have read reports from sufferers where even a second suction did not solve the problem. However, there are also many positive reports about liposuction.
Sweat gland excision for underarm sweating
We have to sweat, just not as much. But do we have to stop it completely? And for good? I have read in reports from patients that you often have to reckon with compensatory sweating. First under the armpits and then perhaps on the back as a substitute.
Let it run
That's all I have found so far and I would like to point out here again that this personal information about sweating is NOT a substitute for medical advice.
The fact is that I have not found any sweat prevention technique that works for me (of those I wanted to try). That's why I came up with the idea of not preventing it anymore, but letting it run. Hence the name for our product: laulas®.
But let it run in such a way that you can no longer see it.
It's not the solution to the cause (I'm still looking for that), but it's a wonderful solution for everyday life. We can lift our arms freely again.
