Treatment of Hyperhidrosis With Microwave Technology

Carolyn Jacob, MD

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.
