Individuals with mild hidradenitis suppurativa needed for research study

Individuals with mild hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) affecting the underarms are needed to participate in a research study to analyze the tolerability and potential efficacy of a radiofrequency-based treatment on skin. In this study, we will treat the underarm skin area with a radiofrequency-based device that has been commonly used in many cosmetic procedures and skin disease treatments like facial acne and wrinkles. Topical numbing cream will be applied prior to treatment. The study involves standard photographs and skin readings before and after treatment.
