PrecisionTx for Hyperhidrosis (Underarm sweating)
The first one-time treatment for excessive sweating that has lasting results.
Do you sweat too much? Get your freedom back!
Severe excessive sweating is estimated to affect approximately 7.8 million in the world and more than 4 million in the United States. The condition can be disabling and inhibiting within everyday situations affecting lifestyle and emotional well-being. Previous treatment options varied from topicals, injections of Botox, and significantly invasive surgical options with considerable recurrence and compensatory sweating.
Precision TX is different. It utilizes a unique and focused delivery of laser energy to target and ablate the function of sweat glands within the axillae (underarms). This revolutionary, minimal invasive procedure is the newest application for the Sidelaze800 side-firing laser by Cynosure®, the makers of SmartLipo and Cellulaze. The design of the laser allows for energy and heat to be directed upward toward the undersurface of the skin, directly at the sweat glands (and hair follicles).
- One time, one hour minimally invasive procedure
- Procedure performed in our office
- Minimal discomfort and downtime
Six months after a single Precision TX treatment quantitative calculations reported 78% sweat reduction in right axilla and 96% sweat reduction in the left axilla. After treatment, axillary perspiration could be controlled through a standard over the counter antiperspirant.
How does the procedure work?
The procedure is done under local anesthesia. Through a small incision, a cannula is inserted under the skin and thermally controlled laser energy is delivered directly to the sweat glands to ablate them.
What does it feel like?
Like any other minimally invasive procedure, you may feel a light pressure during the procedure and some soreness afterwards ... this will resolve rapidly. You will be able to return to your normal activities in a few days.
How long does it take?
The procedure takes about one hour.
