The Hyperhidrosis can be treated. The sweat glands, responsible for liberating sweat, receive the stimulus of a substance called acetylcholine and therefore, the production of sweat. This treatment is considered to be a quick, safe and effective procedure and with a few significant side effects. In the armpits, the treatment is performed through a simple technique, quick and practically painless. The average duration of the effect in this region varies between 4 to 10 months, depending on the dose and technique applied. In the palm of the hand, it might be necessary to apply local anesthesia, and the average duration of the therapeutic effect is of 6 months, approximately. The studies prove that the reduction of sweat observed in the patients who went through a treatment with Botulinum Toxin Type A generates a high degree of satisfaction with the treatment.

Duo Dry

The PERMANENT solution for excessive AXILLARY Sweating

The Axillary hyperhidrosis had found its temporary solution with the Botulinum Toxin (Botox or Dysport) from 10 to 16 months and it is still and excellent, non-invasive and tested option to treat or palliate the annoying excessive sweating at least for a while.

Currently new techniques have been developed based on previously used Technologies for other objectives such as Microwaves, which are reported to be painful and multiple sessions are required to achieve the goal. Even more recently, the use of the combination of the simultaneous Bipolar Radiofrequency with Monopolar Radiofrequency in the same session has been published; both techniques have reported encouraging findings at a long term; however, much more sessions are needed to achieve a temporary decrease of sweating.

The DuoDry is an alternative; a safe, effective and painless technique which mixes the Monopolar Radiofrequency and the Optical Fiber Laser of Nd:YAG with optical fiber in an ambulatory and minimally invasive procedure in which only one session, and in a 20% in 2 sessions, will be needed to get rid in a permanent way the annoying Axillary Hyperhidrosis.

When the optic fiber of Nd:YAG 1064 is introduced under the axillary skin, it selectively destroys the sweat glands and it is helped with the Monopolar RF to destroy the remaining hyperactive glands.

Steps:

  1. Marking: Before the procedure Isodine or Iodine is applied in the patient’s armpits and afterwards ironing or ground starch is applied to delimit the zone with excessive sweating, since it takes a different coloring and allows us to recognize it. It is then marked.
  2. Anesthesia: Cream anesthesia is applied for 20 minutes to numb the area. Then a very effective mixture of anesthetics and saline solution is applied by a 2 mm incision.
  3. Removal: The Nd:YAG Laser 1064 is passed under the skin, from 15 to 20 minutes per armpit. The Monopolar Radiofrequency is applied for 3 minutes in each armpit. And all the destroyed glands are vacuumed with a special liposuction cannula.

Many physicians and patients are choosing DuoDry as their first election to treat in a permanent way the Excessive Axillary Sweating and for improving in a definite way the life quality of the Patient.

We will be glad to assist you in Cderma and we hope you can be one more of the ones who have been benefited with this technique.

First, a starch test is performed to set the limits to work with, afterwards, the starch is washed and a topical anesthetic gel is applied for 20 to 30 minutes and a Klein solution with Xylocaine, Naropin, physiological solution and 1/3 of adrenaline is infiltrated.

Once the area is anesthetized, the optical fiber is introduced through a small puncture and the scanning with the laser is done in all the armpit and afterwards there is a scanning with the long tip of the surgical Monopolar Radiofrequency, finally with a dermatological curette the gland and detritus is removed or swept after the surgical procedure is done. Some bandages and an arm sling are placed and the procedure is done.
