If you’re looking for a permanent solution to the physical and social discomfort of underarm sweating, look no further. We eliminate underarm sweat and odour right at the source, applying the only technology approved by the US FDA for the purpose.

Understanding sweating

Sweating is an essential part of the body’s temperature control system. Your body is endowed with a complex system of 2 to 4 million sweat glands that work closely with your nervous system and communicate with your brain at the speed of light to switch the perspiration process on and off or faster and slower as needed to maintain ideal body temperature. This process isn’t just important; it’s critical. An overheated body could damage vital organs.

Sweating occurs not only as a response to physical stimuli such as warmer surroundings and exertion but to stress, social anxiety and other psychological triggers as well.

Although some measure of sweating is normal and necessary, many individuals experience excessive and seemingly unprovoked levels of sweating, especially in the underarm area. This condition is known as Hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis can be generalized or localized. Generalized Hyperhidrosis causes sweating all over body, wherever sweat glands exist. Focal Hyperhidrosis is localised, affecting only areas that have a large concentration of sweat glands — areas such as the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and the armpits. Excessive underarm sweating is termed Axillary Hyperhidrosis.

Understanding body odour

We generally think of sweat and odour as inseparable companions, and many believe, quite incorrectly, that sweat smells. Fact is, sweat — believe it or not — is actually odourless. The odour that develops is caused by bacterial activity for which sweat happens to be a convenient, supportive medium.

It is also important to focus on the characteristic underarm odour. Let’s understand what makes it different. Our skin contains two types of glands: Eccrine glands, which are found all over the body, and Apocrine glands which are located in the underarm and groin areas. Eccrine glands secrete clear, odourless sweat, while Apocrine glands produce a thick fluid which interacts with bacteria on the skin to produce that characteristic note.

Introducing Kaya Sweat-Free

We understand how bothersome armpit sweat can be, with those embarrassing patches that develop on clothing, the odour that begins to build up, and that sticky feeling at the end of the day. Anti-perspirants and deodorants bring along their own set of problems, such as residual stains and deodorant chemicals that are currently under the microscope for possible toxic effects on the body.

Kaya Sweat-Free focuses on two distinct solutions: Botox®for temporary but satisfactory relief from hyperhidrosis, and miraDry®for permanent and near-total elimination of odour and sweat.

Let’s take a closer look at how the treatments work to give you sweat-free and odour-free armpits.

Botox® blocks the release of acetylcholine, the chemical messenger through which the brain instructs the Eccrine glands to secrete sweat.  It is a safe and reliable way to deactivate underarm sweating for several months at a time. Clinical studies prove its effectiveness, with upwards of 88% of people achieving a 50-80% reduction in underarm sweating.

miraDry® actually eliminates the sweat and odour-producing Eccrine and Apocrine glands. miraWaveTMenergy is delivered directly to the targeted area, where sweat and odour glands reside, just below the dermis. While heat eliminates the eccrine and apocrine glands, the surface of the skin is kept cool to ensure comfort and avoid skin-burn.

Your dermatologist will assess your situation and recommend the ideal approach for your specific problem.

What to expect

Depending on which solution you choose, you will see a permanent end to odour and sweat, or a temporary stop to excessive sweating.

With Botox®the sweat will reduce within 14 days of the treatment. The injection needs to be repeated once or twice a year.

A single session of miraDry®, on the other hand, typically eliminates over 80% of the underarm sweat and odour glands. There may be some elimination of underarm hair as well.
