Hyperhidrosis – a condition that causes excessive sweating – affects around 3% of the population, often causing embarrassment, discomfort, and anxiety. Over half of people with hyperhidrosis are never diagnosed or treated, despite the fact that it is considered a serious medical condition.
The unique Precision TX™ device targets the sweat glands in the underarm area and uses focused laser energy to ablate their function. In the past, treatment for hyperhidrosis varied from BOTOX® injections and topical creams to invasive surgical procedures – all of which only provided temporary relief. Precision TX™ not only gives patients long term relief from excessive sweating, but the procedure is also easily tolerated under local anesthesia with no downtime, minimal discomfort, and no side effects.
The 60 to 90 minute office-based treatment requires numbing with local anesthesia and mild or moderate sedation. The thin 2mm laser fiber is introduced through five micro entry ports, hidden below the chin, earlobes and lower edge of the sideburn. There is no cutting, no stitches and minimal downtime. Patients can return to work and normal activity within a few days. Bruising and swelling are usually easily covered. PrecisionTx is a one-time treatment and provides lasting tightening, lifting and contouring. Results continue to improve for several months following the procedure. Additional collagen builds in the deep layers of the skin for up to a year.
