"I am 12 weeks post-op from a breast reduction & lift. A surgery I’ve wanted for years, but was afraid of the procedure/recovery due to past experience with anesthesia. I had a few prior consultations, but knew exactly what I was going to do when I left Dr. Dauwe’s office. Preparation was thorough. Recovery was a breeze. Never one nauseous spell & only used pain meds for 2 days. This surgery changed my life. I would do it a hundred times over again."- K.T. / Google / Feb 02, 2024

Will Sweat Reduction Treatment Work for Me?
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.
How Does Sweat Reduction Treatment Work?
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.
When Will You See Results From Sweat Reduction Treatment?
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.

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.
