Spring has sprung, and summer is just around the corner. This means the resurgence of bike rides, beach volleyball, and pool days. Outdoor activities are what make the warmer months so enjoyable. However, these higher temperatures can also make us feel less comfortable and confident in our own skin.
Many individuals have hyperhidrosis and feel its effects, particularly in the summertime. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that involves the excessive sweating of body parts, including but not limited to the underarms and face. The sweat glands overact when they are triggered by the nerves in the body. As a result, more sweat is produced than necessary, leaving individuals feeling uncomfortable. Hyperhidrosis can be caused by a myriad of factors, including certain medical conditions, heat, and strenuous exercise regimens.
According to a report by the National Library of Medicine, 15.3 million people in the United States suffer from excessive sweating. Luckily, a new procedure allows patients to take control of their situation and feel confident year-round.
Meet SweatZap™—a premium cosmetic treatment offered by Dr. Sam Assassa at Beverly Hills Aesthetics. As one of the first luxury beauty experts to offer this procedure in the United States, Dr. Assassa is committed to providing his clients with a safe solution to hyperhidrosis.
How It Works
SweatZap™ is a minimally-invasive laser procedure also known as “Smart Lipo.” In just one-hour, Dr. Assassa eliminates the overactive sweat glands by passing a laser underneath the skin. Its light and energy do a top-notch job at preventing bleeding and stimulating collagen, leaving skin feeling rejuvenated. Local anesthesia is injected directly into the source to keep the procedure virtually painless.
Once anesthesia is applied, the laser reaches the sweat glands through a small tube. This tube enters through a small incision in the skin. Once the laser is in the perfect spot, it seamlessly removes the sweat glands and sucks them into the tube. After that, patients can go home and begin the aftercare process.
Clients should expect about two days of localized minimal discomfort if they experience any symptoms at all. While slight bruising and swelling can occur, symptoms commonly dissipate within 48 hours. After that, patients can throw on their favorite swimsuits and enjoy the sun without worries. Clinical studies show SweatZap™ reduces excessive sweating of patients by 80%.
About The Doctor
Dr. Assassa’s attention to detail allows clients to see and feel immediate results after their procedure. As the president of the American Association of Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery since 2006, Dr. Assassa puts the comfort and happiness of his patients first. In addition to SweatZap™, he has introduced many minimally invasive procedures to the west coast, including the CosmoFaceLift™ and the Smart Liposculpt™. In the luxury beauty space, patients and specialists alike look to Dr. Assassa as an authority in the field of cosmetic surgery. This is because of his innovative approach to keeping his treatments simple and natural.
“I discovered that there was an increased demand for minimally invasive non-surgical cosmetic procedures,” he says. “It was then I realized that my passion and market demand could be combined, and I opened the Beverly Hills Aesthetics in Beverly Hills, California. My goal was to make it the elite center for nonsurgical specialists and best-in-class for our industry.”
Dr. Assassa sees the luxury beauty space as moving into the field of aesthetic regenerative medicine. In other words, he believes that anti-aging procedures will continue to blend surgical techniques with natural remedies. He explains his theories by describing another one of his procedures, Juvelift™.
“I believe the future of facial rejuvenation and delaying the aging process will be in the field of aesthetic regenerative medicine. Using autologous (your own tissue) to “regenerate” human tissue to restore youth,” he begins. “It consists of three components called the “Triad of Regeneration.” The first two components are taken from your own body by extracting a small amount of fat and a blood sample that holds Growth factors. The third component is an “Anti-Aging Network,” a blend of essential amino acids, anti-oxidants, minerals, and multivitamins.”
The Importance of Self-Love and Confidence
In the modern beauty industry, there are always brands that are placing unrealistic expectations on physical beauty. Natural beauty can be complex for companies to market when they are selling products meant to hide or alter it. However, Dr. Assassa believes that beauty is about finding harmony in oneself. He designed procedures like SweatZap™ to improve both the confidence and health of those who suffer from excessive sweating. These cosmetic surgeries are about restoring and accentuating the natural—not covering it up.
“As they say, ‘Beauty is the eye of the beholder.’ You have to feel beautiful inside and out,” he says.
With a 4.7 star rating and many positive reviews under his belt, Dr. Assassa’s premium care is helping his clients feel like the best version of themselves.
