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.
Thankfully, today’s technology offers a long term solution to hyperhidrosis: Precision TX™, a cosmetic surgery laser treatment.
How Does Precision TX™ Work?
The unique Precision TX™ device targets the sweat glands in the underarm area and uses focused laser energy to ablate their function. This innovative and minimally-invasive treatment is the latest application for the Sidelaze800™ bi-directional laser (created by Cynosure®, the makers of Cellulaze™ and SmartLipo™).
In the past, treatment for hyperhidrosis varied from BOTOX® Cosmetic injections and topical 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.
Leading the Industry in Laser Technology
Dermatologist Dr. Bruce Katz, director at the JUVA Skin & Laser Center, is currently leading an approved IRB study using Precision TX™ for hyperhidrosis treatment. “The JUVA Skin & Laser Center has been at the forefront of laser technology for years," and "I am thrilled to be able to offer patients this revolutionary approach to hyperhidrosis treatment,” says Dr. Katz – who has also been also a pioneer in the use of SmartLipo™ and Cellulaze™.
Dr. Katz’s study shows that Precision TX™ provides significant sweat reduction in 80% of patients six months after a single treatment. Once treatment has been completed, patients can then control sweating through standard over-the-counter anti-perspirants. No follow-up treatments are required.
