Local law enforcement officer finds relief from severe hyperhidrosis at Avail Dermatology
Patient says the miraDry treatment changed his life for the better
An estimated 7.8 million Americans suffer from hyperhidrosis — a medical condition which causes excessive and unpredictable sweating. Avail Dermatology patient Jason Fetner is just one of those 7.8 million, but his story is a classic case of the struggle facing so many individuals with this condition.
As a sergeant in the Criminal Investigations Division of a local law enforcement unit, Fetner’s hyperhidrosis had serious negative effects on both his personal and professional life.
“It was a huge problem for me,” asserts Fetner. “Not only is my job very high-stress, but it requires me to constantly be interacting with other individuals in a very public way.”
With daily responsibilities like making court appearances, supervising investigations, and important face-to-face interactions, appearing cool, calm, and collected is a must for a professional like Fetner.
Having only been recommended very invasive and short-term solutions to his hyperhidrosis, Fetner had all but given up hope that he would ever find relief from the day-to-day struggle of excessive sweating. Luckily for him, he was just one appointment away from finding that relief.
“When my doctor at Avail Dermatology first started telling me about miraDry I thought it was too good to be true,” said Fetner. “She told me that it was non-invasive, quick, and most importantly, permanent.”
That’s when it all changed for Fetner. “After completing the miraDry treatment my sweat level went from one hundred percent to about seven percent. I use to start sweating the minute I woke up, and now I can go run five miles without having to worry about it.”
On top of these amazing results, Fetner said the care and treatment he received from the Avail Dermatology staff was unparalleled. “This was one of the very few times in my life that I’ve been given advice by a medical professional and had it work out one-hundred percent,” Fetner exclaims. “The Avail Dermatology staff really puts you at ease and makes you feel comfortable even when you’re coming in for something that feels embarrassing to talk about.”
Now with the weight of excessive sweating off his back, Fetner can put all his focus back into serving his community.
