What is the “sweat-free” treatment? The “sweat-free” treatment is the only non-invasive, FDA cleared aesthetic treatment that safely removes underarm sweat and odor glands. It’s a quick in-office procedure that provides a permanent solution for underarm sweat.
Don’t I need sweat glands? Not in your armpits! You are born with approximately 2 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. With the “sweat-free” treatment you will experience the many benefits of stopping sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat elsewhere.
What is the procedure like? Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment to assist in increasing comfort. Some patients describe the initial anesthetic injections as the most painful part of the procedure. There are no incisions or cuts. Treatment is customized to each underarm with multiple placements of the “sweat-free” treatment handpiece. An office visit appointment will generally last about one hour.
How does it work? The “sweat-free” treatment’s proprietary technology is the ideal wavelength for eliminating sweat and odor glands in the underarm. It non-invasively targets the area where the sweat glands reside and safely destroys them while simultaneously cooling your skin for added comfort.
What results can I expect? You can expect immediate and lasting results - sweat glands don’t come back after treatment. The amount of sweat reduction you desire should be discussed with your treatment physician. Recent clinical information confirms an average of 82% sweat reduction in most patients. As with any aesthetic treatment results will vary by person.
How many treatments will I need? You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your expected results.
Is the procedure painless? Since local anesthesia is administered to the underarm prior to treatment, most patients experience little to no pain. Patients rated treatment pain on an average score of 2 on a scale from 1 to 10 (1 = no pain, 10= worst pain).
Is there any downtime? Most patients experience minimal downtime and return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days post-treatment.
Are there any side effects? The “sweat-free” treatment has a strong safety record. Some localized soreness or swelling will occur, and typically clears within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
How much does it cost? Pricing can vary depending on your specific treatment protocol and will be discussed during your consultation.

Needles are nothing to be afraid of anymore! Microneedling is a revolutionary skin treatment that uses fine gold microneedles that penetrate the epidermis (skin’s surface), resulting in the production of collagen and the improvement of texture, tone and glow. Microneedling can either be done with a vitamin rich serum or with one’s own platelet-rich plasma(PRP) like in the Vampire Facial.
Looking to improve tone & texture of skin?
Our Microneedling and PRP treatments can improve your tone and texture and reduce brown spots and acne scars. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and provides overall rejuvenation.
What is Microneedling? Microneedling is a safe and effective, nonsurgical procedure that uses tiny needles to deliver serums deeper into the skin. This revolutionary skin treatment can stimulate collagen production and help create radiant-looking skin. This treatment can either be done with one of our serums or with one’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
What is PRP? Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP has been used for years for healing purposes. It is a natural product in the blood created from one’s own body to help the tissue to heal. When used in cosmetic procedures, it acts as a matrix that promotes the body’s own tissue to regenerate.
How It Works: Our centrifuge device separates the components of one’s own blood. Red and white blood cells are separated from the platelets and the plasma. Once the platelet rich plasma is separated, it is injected into to the area to trigger the body’s natural healing process. This will have an instant rejuvenation effect to give the patient a more youthful and vibrant look.
The Plasma Lift: The Plasma Lift incorporates Microneedling with platelet rich plasma and Juvederm, a dermal filler made of stabilized hyaluronic acid.
After separating one’s own platelets from the blood, they are then are injected using a special technique back into the area being treated. The platelets will activate and draw stem cells already inside the skin to the area, promoting the body’s own collagen to grow and regenerate tissue. This treatment naturally tightens the appearance of skin, soften wrinkles and creates smoother skin tone and texture. It also helps to reduce brown spots, acne scars or just dull & tired skin.
PRP Injections: PRP injections are platelet-rich plasma injected directly to a specific area to promote the growth of collagen and regenerate the tissue, creating a smoother, tighter, rejuvenated appearance.
PRP for Hair Rejuvenation: PRP is also now used as a treatment for hair loss conditions. It involves separating one’s own platelets and injecting it into the scalp. The PRP contains essential proteins to stimulate natural hair regrowth.
*To see the best results, it is recommended to come in for at least 3 treatments.
