Axillary Hyperhidrosis Clinical Trial
Patient Quality of Life and Safety of Treatment With Microwave Technology for Axillary Hyperhidrosis
Primary localized hyperhidrosis is a dermatological disorder that involves excessive sweat
production without an underlying cause. The disease usually affects the axillae but can also
involve palms, soles of the feet or face and causes major problems in many social situations
with a negative impact on quality of life and mental health.
In this study, the investigators want to investigate the effect of microwave therapy (MiraDry®) on self-rated sweating, quality of life and anxiety in participants with severe axillary hyperhidrosis. The study also aims to evaluate the safety (side effects) of the method and long term effects over 1 year of follow upp.
The study is conducted during several visits or telephone follow-ups at the clinic over a
period of 12 months and each patient receives a maximum of two treatments with MiraDry® (at
3-month intervals). 100 participants are planned to participate in the study.
The primary objective is to evaluate the effectiveness of the miraDry ® treatment measured by Hyperhidrosis Disease Severity Scale(HDSS).
Secondary objectives are to evaluate the side effects and the quality of Life by assessment of The Dermatology life Quality Index, The Hyperhidrosis Quality of Life Index, and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale. ;
