Revival Dermatology Introduces Brella: A Game-Changer in Sweat Control Treatment

Managing perspiration is more than just a matter of comfort—it’s about confidence and quality of life. Recognizing this, Revival Dermatology is proud to be one of the first dermatology practices in the DFW area offering Brella, an innovative breakthrough in under arm sweat control technology. Brella’s cutting-edge approach offers a promising solution to individuals struggling with primary auxiliary hyperhidrosis (excessive under arm sweating).

Understanding Excessive Sweating and Its Impacts

The challenge of excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is more than just physical discomfort. This condition, marked by an overactive sweat response, can place patients in a frustrating cycle of self-consciousness. For many, the anticipation of a handshake or the choice of wardrobe becomes a strategic decision, aiming to mask the visible signs of sweat. The condition often instigates a search for remedies, from prescription antiperspirants to wardrobe adjustments, yet the search for an effective, long-lasting solution can seem unattainable. Hyperhidrosis can be a significant disruptor of quality of life. Seeking control over this condition is more than a pursuit of comfort—it’s a step towards regaining autonomy over one’s body, highlighting the critical need for innovative, effective treatments in the field of sweat management.

Brella: Revolutionizing Sweat Control

Brella introduces an exciting new approach in managing excessive sweating. This SweatControl Patch treatment, distinguished by its FDA approval, is a departure from conventional approaches and has shown to significantly reduce excessive underarm sweating and significantly improve quality of life in adults with primary axillary hyperhidrosis.1,2

“The mechanism (patch) is quite clever,” says Robert Anolik, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City. “It’s a completely novel method of sweat reduction compared to other modalities.”

Utilizing Brella’s simple and safe three-minute/in-office application, Brella redefines the paradigm of sweat control, merging convenience with effectiveness in an unprecedented way. 5

Prioritizing Patient Experience: A non-invasive, needle-free, aluminum-free and affordable treatment with results lasting three to four months, and longer in some patients*.3Proven Science: A 3-Minute SweatControl Patch using Candesant’s patented targeted alkali thermolysis (TAT) technology to precisely target your overactive sweat glands and significantly reduce sweat production. 4

The Science Behind the SweatControl Patch

The scientific foundation of the SweatControl Patch is a testament to the marriage of dermatological expertise and technological innovation. It’s a thoughtful approach to sweat management that respects the body’s integrity while providing a powerful solution to those grappling with hyperhidrosis. 

The mechanism at play involves a non-intrusive application that gently yet effectively moderates the glands responsible for sweat production. By addressing the root cause of excessive sweating at its source, the SweatControl Patch achieves a significant reduction in underarm perspiration. This scientific strategy is not only about suppression but about bringing the body’s sweat production into a balanced state, aligning with an individual’s lifestyle and comfort needs.

The Non-Invasive Procedure: What to Expect

Revival Dermatology understands and appreciates the simplicity of this patient-centric approach. Upon scheduling an appointment, patients are welcomed into a comfortable setting.  The procedure itself is remarkably straightforward, requiring only a brief three-minute session that seamlessly fits into even the busiest of schedules. This efficiency does not come at the expense of effectiveness; instead, it highlights the advanced nature of the technology and design of the treatment process.

Your appointment will unfold as follows:

  • A Revival Dermatology provider will apply one single-use, disposable 3-Minute SweatControl Patch to your underarm, for up to three minutes. 
  • The treated area may start to feel warm as the time passes, after the Patch is applied.  You may also feel some sensations such as pins and needles or stinging, which is an indication that the Patch is interacting with your sweat. 
  • The Patch will be removed after the first underarm is treated and a new Patch will be applied to your other underarm.3

Following the treatment, you can expect a dramatic reduction with sweat production cut nearly in half after one single treatment. 2 With no downtime required, patients can continue with their day, unencumbered.

Real Results: Longevity and Effectiveness

The promise of Brella is not fleeting; it’s an enduring shield against the challenges of hyperhidrosis. Patients who embark on this journey can anticipate a significant respite from excessive underarm sweating, with the following effects lasting from three to four months, and in certain cases, even longer.

  • Significant improvement in confidence including reduced feelings of frustration and embarrassment. 2 
  • Reduced sweat production may lead to a reduction in the number of showers multiple times a day, high dry-cleaning bills, frequency of applying antiperspirant, need to frequently replace stained shirts and tops, or need to carry extra change of clothing.
  • A safe, effective, and versatile treatment for all skin types with no downtime, so you can resume your normal routine following your treatment.

In clinical studies many patients noticed improvements within several days of their treatment.5
