When people think of excessive sweating, if you’re old enough, the movie Broadcast News probably comes to mind where Albert Brooks finally was given his on-camera anchor shot and proceeded to sweat a river. Truth is, approximately 7.8 million people around the world, 4 million in the U.S, suffer from severe excessive sweating.
This isn’t just a wet shirt or blouse under the arms, it’s a degree of sweating that can be disabling and thoroughly inhibiting. To a person suffering from excessive sweating, the condition can dictate their lifestyle and undermine their emotional well-being.
In the past, treatment options have included topical applications that had little effect, Botox injections, and invasive surgery that usually involved recurrence. But thanks to the new Precision TX™ treatment at Creative Image Laser Solutions, your underarm sweating can be a thing of the past.
What is the Precision TX treatment?
The Precision TX system utilizes a unique, focused deliver of laser energy to target and ablate the function of sweat glands in the axillae, the underarms. The design of the laser allows the energy to be directed upward toward the under surface of the skin, exactly where the sweat glands are located.
The Precision TX system is the newest application of the Sidelaze800™ side-firing laser by Cynosure®. This is the same company behind SmartLipo™ and Cellulaze™, so their track record of success is second to none.
Treatment times and results
A Precision TX treatment takes less than an hour, and only local numbing anesthetic is needed for patient comfort. There isn’t any downtime.
Results show that after six months, patients who have received just a single Precision TX treatment report a 78% to 96% reduction in sweat in their underarms. After their treatments, patients could control any future perspiration with normal over-the-counter antiperspirants.
