Fractora for sweating is here!!!

What is Hyperhidrosis ? …

Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating of the skin. It can not only be embarrassing from an appearance stand point with soaked clothing, but it can also cause unpleasant body odor. Botulinum (Botox) injections have been fantastic for patients with hyperhidrosis of the armpits, hands, and feet. Unfortunately, they require repeat injections about every 6-12 months and are costly because of the cost of the product. There is now a new treatment that offers a more long-term if not permanent improvement for armpit hyperhidrosis using Fractora. Fractora is a radiofrequency device that delivers energy through specially designed tips that produce thermal (heat) damage under the skin. Typically, Fractora is used for cosmetic reasons providing outstanding improvement of skin lines and wrinkles and texture issues. Fractora is also used for treatment of hyperhidrosis of the armpits where it can permanently destroy the majority of the armpit area sweat glands in a single treatment thereby reducing unwanted and excessive sweat and odor. This treatment typically only takes one or two sessions. The armpit areas are numbed with local anesthetic then the Fractora treatment is performed. Treatments can take as little as 45 minutes.
