Are you bothered by underarm sweating?
You are not alone! Did you know that …
- More than 2.8% of the world’s population is affected by severe excessive sweating; that means more than four million people in the United States.
- In people who have excessive sweating, the sweat glands are over-reacting to stimuli such as physical activity, exercise, emotions or hormones and producing more sweat than is needed to cool the body.
- From physical discomfort to anxiety, embarrassment and the stress of always hiding your sweat from others, excessive sweating can impact nearly all aspects of your life.
Finally, there is a one-time procedure for your sweat glands: Precision Tx. Current treatments available for underarm excessive sweating include Botox and MiraDry. Botox stops the sweating for a four-to-six-month period and the injections need to be repeated. MiraDry uses microwave energy to shrink sweat glands, but two to three treatments three months apart are usually needed.
Precision Tx introduces a new minimally invasive laser procedure that is capable of destroying the sweat glands in our treatment. The treatment is done in our office under local anesthesia with oral sedation. These one-time, one-hour procedures make Precision Tx ideal for patients who are seeking the best possible results with the least amount of downtime.
