Hyperhidrosis? Don’t Sweat It
Don’t let excessive sweating a.k.a Hyperhidrosis take over your life and wear down your washing machine.
More than 200 million people around the world suffer from excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis. The condition is associated with the eccrine sweat glands which cover most of the body and are concentrated on the palms, the forehead, the soles of the feet and in the armpits.
Alma Zero uses the power of cryo-thermal therapy to treat hyperactive glands of the body, specially those associated with hyperhidrosis (and acne).
Treatment begins with a cold cycle where skin temperature is gradually lowered to between +5°C and -5°C, the point at which tissue freezes.
This low temperature destroys the eccrine glands through ischemia and crystallization of extracellular fluid, leading to cell leakage and wall rupture.
During the heat cycle, the reperfusion of previously ischemic tissues causes free radical formation which further damages cells and ultimately reduces the glands’ rapid rate of sweat production.
