A new procedure called laser sweat ablation promises to end embarrassing armpit sweat for good. The one-hour long procedure is being launched by a British surgeon and uses local anesthetic followed by a sweat-gland destroying laser before the treated tissue is removed. Surgeon Mark Whiteley says the treatment is effective immediately and that stopping the ability to sweat from such a small area only redistributes sweat to the rest of the body, while the “embarrassing build-up of sweat under the arms is cured.” In the past, celebrities like Madonna are rumoured to have Botox injections under the arms to temporarily stop sweat patches.
