Beat the Summer Heat with Minimally Invasive Treatments

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JULY 17, 2014 AT 5:15 PM  by Dr. Jody Levine

Summer is in full swing! Although the warm, summer sun baking on your body is a welcomed part of the season, it may be having some unwelcoming affects, such as revealing excessive sweating and unwanted hair growth usually covered by garments. Our NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, offers minimally invasive procedures to eliminate sweating and remove unwanted hair growth. These procedures are a solution to help you look and feel better for summer!

Botox for Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis, commonly referred to as excessive sweating, can affect your underarms, the palms of your hands, and the soles of your feet. Not only is excessive sweating embarrassing, it can also cause rashes, stain clothing, and make social gatherings a stressful occurrence. Although you may sweat most of the time, the summer season brings warmer weather, increasing the occurrences and intensity of sweating. Our dermatologist, Dr. Levine, performs Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis. This natural, purified protein is injected into affected areas. Botox blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands and thereby stops the production of sweat. The procedure is outpatient, lasting only twenty minutes and requires zero downtime. The treatment will initially need to be repeated a few times a year, but within time, the frequency of treatments will decrease.

Laser Hair Removal

Shaving, plucking, and waxing are common methods of hair removal that are time consuming, ineffective, and leave your skin feeling soft for only a short period of time. Using a laser-emitted, pulsated light, laser hair removal is able to absorb the pigment in the hair, transmitted all the way down to the root. The heat produced by the laser damages the unwanted hair follicle, inhibiting future hair growth. Laser hair removal is often used by women to decrease hair growth in the legs, armpits, face, and bikini line, allowing for a more flawless appearance and eliminating ingrowns. Laser hair removal is virtually painless, with the laser treatment described as a “pin prick” or “prickling”. Results from laser hair removal vary, and a series of multiple treatments are required to achieve long lasting results.
