Sometimes there’s nothing like working up a good sweat. But when it gets in the way of your daily activities, it can become a real burden.
More than 211 million people around the world suffer from excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis.
Every day, people struggle with sweaty hands, soaked-through shirts, sweat-stained arm pits, soggy feet and other embarrassing, often life-disrupting symptoms.
A separate, though oftenrelated problem is unpleasant body odor , or osmidrosis. People who suffer from unpleasant body odor often feel shame, embarrassment, low self-esteem, isolation, anxiety and depression. When hyperhidrosis and osmidrosis occur together, the situation can become downright devastating.
At this levelof sweating, even strong antiperspirants won’t do. Drugs can be ineffective and cause unwanted side effects, and surgery has its own issuesandis expensive. What’s needed is a completely new type of solution. A treatment that’s revolutionary, yet proven to besafe, effective and affordable.

Alma SweatX breakthrough solution
Sweating is the body’s built-in mechanism for regulating its temperature and keeping cool. When your body begins to overheat, such as during exercise, when you are in a hot environment, or even when you’re in a stressful situation, sweat is released from the pores of your skin. Your body loses heat as the sweat evaporates into the air.Temperature regulation is so important, that the body has a highly efficient system built for the task- between two and four million sweat glands that cover the entire body.
There are two types of sweat glands:
Eccrine sweat glands and Apocrine sweat glands
The Eccrine glands, which are associated with excessive sweating, cover most of the body and are concentrated on the palms, the forehead, the soles of the feet and in the armpits. These glands secrete a clear, odorless fluid made up mostly of water and sodium, along with chloride and potassium. The body loses heat when the fluid evaporates into the air, leaving the salts and minerals behind on the skin (this is why sweat can have a salt
The Apocrine glands, which are associated with body odor, are located in areas where there is a high concentration of hair follicles, such as the scalp, the genital region and the armpits. The purpose of these glands is to secrete an oily fluid that decreases skin friction. This fluid is thick and made up of proteins, fats and carbs- a menu that is especially palatable to bacteria residing on the skin. When bacteria feed on this fluid, an unpleasant smell is produced, otherwise known as body odor.
Both the eccrine and apocrine sweat glands are activated by the nervous system in a variety of situations. For example, when the brain detects that the body is too hot or when the body releases hormones associated with certain emotions (such as fear, excitement or anxiety). In people who experience excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, the sweat glands either overreact in these situations or are simply over active in general, producing more sweat than what’s needed to cool the body. People with hyperhidrosis can produce up to four or five times more sweat than normal.

How it Works?
Alma SweatX is a completely new type of treatment for excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis and body odor, or osmidrosis. It is safe, painless, and clinically proven to be a lasting solution that can be performed in your physician’s office- without the use of drugs, toxins or surgical incisions. Alma SweatX works by delivering precisely controlled thermal energy to the treatment area, selectively deactivating the sweat glands. The treatment is quick and painless, and improvement is often seen after only one treatment , though up to 4 treatments are recommended for optimal results.
Alma SweatX works by selectively deactivating the sweat glands, leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected.This results in a dramatic and lasting reduction of sweat along with any associated body odor, with no pain and no side effects. The treatment does not cause any “compensatory sweating,” that is, it will not cause you to sweat more in other areas of your body.You should notice a reduction in the amount of sweating immediately after treatment, with continued reduction visible in the weeks that follow. After the treatment series, your doctor will ask you to come in for a follow-up appointment to determine whether additional treatment sessions are needed.
Quick Treatment and Results
For treatment of the underarm areas, each Alma SweatX treatment lasts approximately 10 minutes per underarm, with immediate improvement often seen after the very first treatment.
The Alma SweatX procedure is performed by constantly moving the handpiece over the treatment area, gradually building up heat in the target area. This gradual heating prevents superficial burns while an integrated cooling system cools the skin surface, preventing the sensation of pain.
No Side Effects
The Alma SweatX solution effectively deactivates the sweat glands without any side effects- including pain, soreness or altered sensation of the skin. You can return to your normal activities immediately following treatment.
Alma SweatX features a groundbreaking, innovative technology for the effective treatment of hyperhidrosis and osmidrosis- without the use of toxins.
