ETS can be performed on teenagers and adolescents. Dr. Gorenstein will meet and discuss the procedure with the patient to be sure they fully understand the procedure and any its possible side effects namely compensatory sweating. Providing the patient has the maturity to understand the procedure there is no absolute age restriction.
miraDry® can be performed on teenagers. The trials to obtain FDA approval for the device were performed on adults over the age of 18. Dr. Gorenstein has treated many teenagers with axillary hyperhidrosis with Miradry, and believes that the procedure is safe and does not pose any different risks in younger patients.
