Until recently, patients were affected by hyperhidrosis to treat your condition so painful and very short-lived. Fortunately, we have been improving the protocols of action gradually, taking into account the welfare of the patient.

Botulinum toxin, microwave gun and surgery have been the triad of treatments for hyperhidrosis:

  • Botulism usually causes pain in the injected area and even sacred.
  • Microwave gun: projecting a source of electromagnetic energy that causes heat in the treated area, leading to the patient to calm their pain with medication and applying ice to the skin.
  • Surgery: this has always been the extreme treatment of hyperhidrosis. After the intervention, the patient takes between 10 and 15 days to return to normal activity. It also tends to cause the so-called "compensatory sweating" transferred to other body areas.

Fortunately for patients affected by this disease, medical professionals and scientists have devised a novel painless, non-invasive technique for the treatment of hyperhidrosis and osmidrosis. This technique is called Sweat Off.

Sweat off it broadens the range of patients to be treated, to improve their daily lives and their daily. Without neglecting, of course, the simplicity and convenience of this technique.


What is the SudorOff treatment of hyperhidrosis?

This treatment is performed with a suitable dielectric and multifocal radiofrequency machine, which destroys damaged eccrine glands and apocrine. The following procedure is non-invasive, painless and welcomes all body areas affected.

Usually it has done in several sessions giving lasting results from the second session. Since then, maintenance and booster sessions are scheduled every 7-8 months.

An electromagnetic field causes rotation of the water molecules in the tissue located. This rotation creates friction that produces heat and selectively disable the sweat glands.

This whole process is carried out following the unification of the unipolar technology and coaxipolar, which allows you to control the depth of the heat and disable the action of the sweat glands selectively. The unipolar heat technology projects in the hypodermis at a depth of up to 20mm, and coaxipolar, heat the dermis up to 6mm depth.

A full treatment of technical Sweat Off, consisting of 6-8 sessions dielectric RF is about 600 euros. Although it seems a high price, other existing therapies are often higher than it costs.


Who should not be treated with Sweat Off?

This technique is not suitable for patients with implanted electronic devices. For example, those with insulin pumps, pacemakers and certain metal plates. Also, the patient should be advised that if the doctor does not have much experience, this treatment can cause some pain during application.


And osmidrosis patients (body odor)?

Patients with body odor or osmidrosis in areas such as the armpits and palms can also be treated with this technique. In fact, experts in Aesthetic Medicine say that all treaties with Sweat Off see a clear improvement in your problem in no time.
