WHY AXILLARY SHAVING?
Axillary shaving is often offered to patients who have failed conservative and medical treatments for excessive sweating and body malodor from the armpits. Common effective non-surgical treatments are antiperspirants, anticholinergics, and botulinum toxin injections. The effects of these treatments, however, are not long lasting and require continual usage to prevent symptoms from returning, in additional to their various side effects. Axilliary shaving has proven to be an effective, long-lasting, and minimally invasive surgical treatment for this condition.
