It is said that about 10% of all Japanese people suffer from armpit bloating and hyperhidrosis.
What is hyperhidrosis
Why do you sweat a lot?
Hyperhidrosis is caused by eccrine sweat glands.Eccrine sweat glands are a symptom associated with the activity of the sympathetic nerve, which is one of the autonomic nerves, and refers to an abnormal increase in sweating that exceeds the range necessary for regulating body temperature.Symptoms are often seen in the armpits, palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and head.If there is no odor, a common way to suppress sweat is to administer anti-perspirant injections regularly.If it is accompanied by an odor, it may be accompanied by armpit irritation.In addition to eccrine sweat glands, the fatty acids secreted by apocrine sweat glands mix with bacteria such as bacteria that are resident on the skin, producing odor.
Surgery carefully!
If you simply undergo other treatments, your hyperhidrosis may not be cured, and you may suffer from scarring for the rest of your life.At our hospital, we provide treatments tailored to each patient's concerns, and we also have treatment methods that make scars less noticeable, so please feel free to contact us.

Eliminate your sweat problems with hyperhidrosis treatment that leaves no scars.At our hospital, we offer treatments that do not leave any scars, such as EL (electrolysis), HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound), and antiperspirant injections.We have treatments that are effective not only for sweat, but also for accompanying armpit irritation, so it is effective not only for sweating, but also for odor and yellow stains.We can also treat excessive sweating in areas other than the armpits, such as the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and head.
For those worried about hyperhidrosis recurrence
Approximately half of our patients have been treated at other hospitals.These include people for whom instrumental treatment or surgery has not been effective, or for those who have developed complications.Our hospital's EL method allows for re-treatment, and many doctors themselves visit our clinic as patients.
How to treat hyperhidrosis
At our hospital, we provide treatment using the following three methods:
EL method (electrolysis method)
This is a treatment method that uses high-frequency energy to pinpoint the source of odor, sweat, and yellow stains, and is less stressful on the body.
HIFU (High intensity focused ultrasonic method)
This is a wakiga treatment that irradiates the sweat gland with the focus energy of ultrasound in a pinpoint manner and destroys it. Ideal for low to moderate wakiga, no skin damage.
Sweat injection
Easily reduce sweat and odor with injections.The effect will vary from person to person, but it will last about half a year.

About EL method
Director is in charge of everything
The director is responsible for everything from counseling to treatment.
Less scarring and less pain after surgery
The scar is scarcely left because the hair follicle is treated with pinpoint.
Can be treated from children
We encourage parents to take care of their children so that they do not feel anxious.
Possible to deal with recurrence
More than half of our patients will be re-treated if wakiga recurs.
Medical expenses deduction
Those who have paid more than a certain amount of medical expenses will return part of the tax paid by filing a tax return.
Daily life possible from the same day
There is no downtime so you can work or exercise without any restrictions on your daily life.
Treatment options that doctors also choose
When the doctor himself receives, the EL method is selected from many treatment methods.
Less risk from anesthesia
The use of anesthetics at 1/10 the normal concentration reduces the burden on the body.
Notes on EL method
Because the anesthesia is injected, internal bleeding may occur temporarily, but this will subside in about a week. The EL method uses a thin needle to generate heat, which causes mild inflammation that matches the hair follicles, and redness may remain for 1-1 weeks.In addition, the surrounding tissue under the skin also shrinks due to heat coagulation, so you may feel a taut and uncomfortable sensation for about 2-1 weeks.There may be temporary pigmentation that matches the hair follicles, but this will disappear after a short period of time.
Mechanism of EL law
The EL (Electrolysis) method uses high-frequency energy to precisely destroy apocrine sweat glands (the source of odor), eccrine sweat glands (the source of sweat), and sebaceous glands (the source of yellow spots).This is a method to reduce sweat, odor, and yellow stains.It can also be used for hem and chichiga (areola armpit ga). The EL method is a treatment that puts less burden on the body.The reasons why it has not become more widespread are that it is extremely difficult to learn the technology, requires the purchase of special equipment, is much more labor-intensive and time-consuming than surgery, and is unlikely to generate profits for medical institutions.
EL method treatment flow
1.Blood test
We conduct blood tests to prevent nosocomial infections and eliminate risks.
2. Disinfect the affected area
We perform disinfection to perform hygienically.
3. Anesthetic injection
Use extreme care to avoid pain.
4. Implementation of EL method by the director
5. Cooling and application of ointment
Apply ointment and cool to prevent redness and folliculitis.
High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is intensively applied to the apocrine and eccrine sweat glands, and the two sweat glands can be destroyed due to thermal coagulation, and can be used simultaneously with the EL method. Ideal for mild to moderate wakiga, with little post-operative pain and little skin damage.
Treatment time About 20 minutes
Number of treatments 3 times effective
pain None
Side effects Report does not.
Sweat injection
Just by giving an anti-perspirant injection, you can suppress the function of eccrine sweat glands, which are the source of sweat, and reduce sweat and odor.There are almost no restrictions on your daily life from the day you receive the treatment, and it is very simple as all you have to do is get an injection.The effect lasts for about half a year, so it is recommended for those who want to suppress sweat and odor only during a limited period of time, such as during the summer, and in combination with the EL method.

pain None

Countermeasures against hyperhidrosis you can do yourself
Deodorant measures
Commercially available deodorants are used to reduce sweat secretion by plugging the sweat glands that cause the condition.We recommend the ointment type.If sweat is left untreated, bacteria will grow and cause odor, so one way to prevent this is to wipe it off frequently.​
Taking herbal medicine
The cause of hyperhidrosis is related to sympathetic nerve activity.Taking Chinese herbs that calm the nervous system can help.
Improvement of daily life
Nicotine and caffeine, which are found in tobacco and coffee, stimulate the central nervous system, which in turn stimulates the sympathetic nervous system.Be sure to refrain from consuming large amounts on a daily basis, as it may stimulate sweat secretion.
How to treat hyperhidrosis
At our hospital, we provide treatment using the following three methods:
EL method (electrolysis method)
High frequency energy destroys the source of odor, the source of sweat, and the source of yellow spots.
HIFU (High intensity focused ultrasonic method)
This is a wakiga treatment that irradiates the sweat gland with the focus energy of ultrasound in a pinpoint manner and destroys it. Ideal for low to moderate wakiga, no skin damage.
Sweat injection
Since you only need to give an injection, you can reduce sweat and smell very easily in a short time. However, the effect is about half a year, although there are individual differences.
