If underarm sweating causes you discomfort, embarrassment, and anxiety, visit the Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery in Rochester for PrecisionTx™. Our patients from Syracuse, Buffalo, and throughout New York choose this minimally invasive in-office procedure because it treats sweating in the underarm area with just a single treatment.1

Individual results may vary.
PrecisionTx™ targets the source of the problem by applying heat energy underneath the skin directly on the sweat glands. Downtime is minimal, and only a local anesthetic is used.
A board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Koenig's experience and gentle bedside manner help put patients at ease and build an uncommon level of trust. He meticulously customizes each procedure, and sculpts beautiful results that consistently exceed his patients' expectations.
A talented artist and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kalnoki specializes in plastic surgery after weight loss or pregnancy and other body contouring procedures. As a woman, Dr. Kalnoki brings a unique perspective to the Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery.
A local anesthetic is used to numb the underarm area so patients feel little to no discomfort during their treatment. A pain medication may be prescribed by the doctor at their discretion based upon the patient's level of discomfort.
For your comfort, we recommend that you have a ride to and from the treatment. If you have pain medication at the time of the treatment, you will need a ride.
The treatment is done as an in-office procedure in one of our medical exam rooms.
