Seattle, WA, April 15, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Seattle Dermatologist, Dr. Jennifer Reichel, specializes in today's top medical and cosmetic skin procedures. Among her practice's list of featured services is a highly sought-after treatment known as Ultherapy;. An effective approach to combating the signs of aging, Dr. Reichel explains how Ultherapy has now become a popular treatment against excessive underarm sweating.
"Most patients know of Ultherapy for its remarkable ability to tighten, tone and uplift the face and neck," explains Dr. Reichel. "Now, this cutting-edge treatment is becoming well-known for its ability to decrease underarm sweating." A condition known as "hyperhidrosis," excessive sweating is thought to affect at least 211 million individuals worldwide, explains the International Hyperhidrosis Society.
Asked to explain how Ultherapy works to combat underarm sweating, Dr. Reichel offered this: "During an Ultherapy session, safe ultrasound energy is used to selectively target and destroy sweat glands. This, in turn, reduces underarm sweating." Ultrasound - which is essentially high-frequency sound - has long been used in the medical field, particularly in diagnostic sonography.
Dr. Reichel also cited new research that looked at Ultherapy's effectiveness in treating underarm sweating. "In a small recent study, hyperhidrosis patients were given two Ultherapy sessions, 28 days apart. Two months after treatment, researchers found a nearly 80% reduction in sweating," explains Dr. Reichel. "These figures give new hope to those living with the condition."
Offering advice to those looking for more information, Dr. Reichel concluded with this: "Hyperhidrosis is a condition that affects individuals both physically and emotionally. This is why we encourage anyone dealing with excessive sweating to meet with a board certified dermatologist and find out more about their treatment options, including cutting-edge Ultherapy."
