Excessive underarm sweating or hyperhidrosis is the result of over-active sweat glands. Many people suffering from underarm hyperhidrosis feel so self-conscious about their sweating that they avoid strenuous physical activity and close personal contact such as giving a hug. Excessive underarm sweating can also make a person appear to be nervous, when they're not.
PrecisionTx is a minimally invasive way to reduce armpit sweating. It targets the source of the problem by applying heat energy underneath the skin directly on the sweat glands. Sweat glands are permanently disabled (ablation).
There can be some discomfort and mild swelling for a week. Some light bruising can also occur. Most return to normal activities in a short period of time.
The incisions made for PrecisionTx are very small and easily hidden in the skin folds in your underarms. For most patients, they are very difficult to see.
Because the sweat glands are destroyed by PrecisionTx, most patients will require only one treatment for long-lasting results.
The human body has about 4 million sweat glands and only 2% of those sweat glands located are in the underarms. Ablating these sweat glands has little effect on the body's ability to maintain an optimum temperature.
