Underarms (Axilla)

Underarms (Axilla)

The underarms are frequently exposed in warmer months or when wearing sleeveless fashions. Common conditions that can make the armpit or axilla a source of embarrassment to some people are hairy armpits and excessively sweaty armpits. Fortunately, there are treatments available for both.

Underarm Sweating

Occasionally, sweaty armpits are nothing more than a passing condition, but some people suffer from excessive underarm sweat (axillary hyperhidrosis) even when they are in a state of rest. Axillary hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by abnormally sweaty armpits which can cause sufferers a lot of embarrassment. People with the condition develop almost compulsive coping routines to hide the problem: carefully choosing clothing that doesn’t show the sweat stains, covering up under layers of clothing (even in warm weather), wearing tissue beneath clothing, sneaking off to dry the area, or worse, avoiding social situations. that can provide long lasting relief from excessive armpit sweat.

Hairy Underarms

In our culture, most women (and many men) consider hairy armpits unattractive, unsightly and slightly embarrassing. Shaving, plucking and waxing are short terms solutions that are not only inconvenient and time consuming, but frequently cause irritation, bumps and infected follicles, known as folliculitis. Anti-Aging Medical & Laser offers laser hair removal to Vancouver and Lower Mainland clients. We use Elos ™ laser technology, which provides permanent hair reduction compared to other epilation methods including shaving, waxing, or home-use laser systems. More about hairy underarms.
