Abstract

Hyperhidrosis is the production of sweat above and beyond normal physiological needs, regardless of the ambient temperature, and it affects >4% of the population. In addition, a poll showed up to 21% of the population is bothered on a daily basis by their amount of underarm sweating. Despite the large number of patients who suffer from hyperhidrosis, there are relatively few effective nonsurgical treatment options. A new, nonsurgical, lasting treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis has now been developed using microwave technology to eliminate sweat glands.
