What is Axillary Odor?

Axillary Odor (armpit smell) is a normal physiological phenomenon and isn’t classified as a serious affliction that needs treatment. However in reality axillary odor causes inconveniences for those with it and people around them. People with Axillary Odor will often have hyperactive sweat glands under their armpit and this results in unpleasant odor after the sweat surfaces their skin and comes into contact with bacteria from the external environment.

For some, their axillary odor can be too intense that cannot be overpowered by conventional cosmetic and hygiene products.

But why?

An average person has sweat glands that are distributed around their body, their main task is to secrete sweat to regulate body temperature, extrude wastes as well as for a few other minor benefits .

Sweat glands are divided into two types: smaller eccrine glands and larger apocrine glands, and the armpit is the location where the apocrine glands are extremely active.

These larger sweat glands excrete thicker fluid containing fat, protein and iron – which is consumed by bacteria outside the environment to create a musky and sour odor that is considered unpleasant by most.

Especially for people who regularly enjoy greasy, hot and spicy food, it unintentionally stimulates the larger sweat glands to work harder, producing sweat with even more of the sustenance that promotes bacterial growth that results in the characteristic body odor.

Permanent Axillary Odor Treatment at Gangwhoo Hospital

Gangwhoo Hospital offers solutions to axillary odor both non-surgical and surgical.

  • Laser Non-surgical Axillary Odor treatment:

For this procedure, doctors use a laser to destroy the sweat gland structure under the skin, then proceed to use a non-invasive method to remove the gland that has been destroyed from the armpit.

When performing the procedure, the doctor will numb the area using an anesthetic cream, rendering you painless and unaware of any traces of invasion.

  • Non-surgical Axillary Odor treatment using slimming injections:

Doctors inject slimming agents directly into the armpit area of patients to numb the overactive nerves to help inhibit the process of sweating.

This helps reduce around 75% axillary sweating within half a year, possibly even longer as treatment continues with repeated injections and the process for each is rather fast, safe, minimal pain and leaves no scarring.

  • Surgical Axillary Odor treatment:

Surgically remove sweat glands using advanced endoscopy while being minimally invasive. The doctor will make a very small incision, just below the armpit, then destroy the sweat glands using a plasma scalpel.

The procedure is quick, easy and not very painful due to being done under local anesthesia. It also leaves a small stitch after doctors sutured the puncture wound
