Everyone sweats. In fact, sweat stains can often be unpleasant and embarrassing. The human body has two to four million sweat glands. There are two types of sweat glands: the eccrine and apocrine gland. The eccrine sweat glands are found in large numbers including the soles of the feet, the palms, the forehead and cheeks, and in the armpits. Eccrine glands secrete an odorless, clear fluid that helps the body to control its temperature by promoting heat loss through evaporation. Apocrine glands, on the other hand, are mainly found in the genital area and produce a thick fluid. When this fluid comes in contact with bacteria on the skin’s surface, it produces a potent body odor.
The use of antiperspirants helps reduce body odor and the production of sweat. Antiperspirants contain active ingredients such as aluminium or zirconium. However, many studies claim that amounts of aluminium from antiperspirants absorbed in the body increase the risk of cancer. Of interest the use of antiperspirants doesn’t prevent the body from sweating altogether — it only reduces sweat by 20 to 30 percent depending on the strength.
At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we conducted a clinical trial investigating SculpSure laser treatment to decrease sweat production. The subjects were followed for one year and were asked to return to the office for follow-up visits. At the conclusion of the study, 100% of patients continued to see reduced sweat production at their one-year follow-up. We are the first center in the country to offer this innovative solution to unwanted sweat!
