About Sweat Reduction

Dallas, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe is pleased to offer radiofrequency (RF) microneedling for the treatment of excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis. RF laser remedies have existed for a number of years and are popular in the aesthetics industry for its noteworthy results in skin rejuvenation. However, this innovative method is also used to destroy sweat glands in the armpit area to reduce disproportionate sweating. This specific sort of laser therapy utilizes heat to create a thermal reaction that eliminates sweat glands. At Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery, we have helped many men and women with hyperhidrosis with RF microneedling.

Ideal Candidates

You may be an ideal candidate for sweat reduction treatment with RF microneedling if you suffer from hyperhidrosis. It is a great option if you have tried other treatments without success and desire a long-term solution. Men and women who are interested in RF microneedling must undergo a thorough consultation with Dr. Dauwe to determine if this is the best procedure for you. Patients should also be in good health.

Procedure Technique

RF microneedling utilizes a handheld device that emits focused radiofrequency energy to target sweat glands. Once a topical anesthetic is applied to the underarms, the device is gently glided along the area. The heat from the RF system reaches the deep layers of the dermis to specifically reduce sweat glands. Most patients notice a 50 – 75% improvement in their sweat production after just one treatment. Sessions usually take about 15 – 20 minutes per underarm. Once the treatment is done, patients will be free to return to their normal routine.

What to Expect

After your treatment, you may experience minimal swelling and redness in the underarm area, but these symptoms usually dissipate in a day or two. Many patients have reported noticeable results within a few days, but most usually see great outcomes around 5 – 7 days. If you have any questions or concerns after your treatment, please do not hesitate to call our office. We are here to help.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?
The cost of your sweat reduction treatment will vary on your condition and the number of RF microneedling sessions needed to achieve the best results. During your first visit, our team can go over all your questions and estimate the cost of your treatment.

How many treatments will I need?
Each patient is unique and some individuals may need more treatments than others. Dr. Dauwe will take his time to perform a thorough assessment to help determine the appropriate number of sessions for you. On average, patients will need 1 – 3 treatments spaced one month apart.

Benefits?
Compared to other popular treatments such as miraDry, RF microneedling offers less downtime, swelling, and discomfort. Patients often prefer RF microneedling because of its affordability as well. Another downside of miraDry is hair loss, which may be desirable for female patients, but not as much for male patients. With RF microneedling, there is no hair loss.

Does it hurt?
Since a topical numbing cream is applied to the target area, most patients experience little to no discomfort during treatment.

Other options?
Dr. Dauwe also offers BOTOX for the treatment of excessive sweating. However, this is a temporary solution (lasting around 4 – 6 months) compared to the long-lasting results of RF microneedling. It can also be more expensive as multiple syringes will be needed per treatment area. At your first consult, Dr. Dauwe can discuss which option may be best for your specific needs.
