We're honored to receive this prestigious award and to have Brella's sweat control technology recognized as a Breakthrough by Allure's world-renowned beauty experts," said Niquette Hunt

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Candesant Biomedical ("Candesant"), a private medical device company focused on developing and commercializing non-invasive treatments for primary axillary hyperhidrosis or excessive underarm sweating, is thrilled to announce that Brella™, the only 3-Minute SweatControl Patch, has been named a 2023 Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award Winner. Brella is the first in-office sweat control innovation to receive a Breakthrough Award, which recognizes the most innovative new products in the aesthetic market.

Niquette Hunt, Founder and CEO of Candesant. "For the one in three U.S. adults bothered by excessive underarm sweating, Brella provides a new treatment option to significantly reduce underarm sweating and improve confidence without pain or downtime."


Sue Ellen Cox, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist, founder of Aesthetic Solutions in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and past President of The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), said, "My patients love the results they are seeing with Brella. Many have suffered with sweating that soaks their shirts, ruins their day, and undermines their confidence. I am excited to offer Brella as a true breakthrough technology in sweat control."

About Hyperhidrosis or Excessive Sweating
Approximately 5% of Americans (15.3 million) report having hyperhidrosis,3 and many experts believe these numbers are an underestimation because the condition is underreported and underdiagnosed.3 Indeed, data show most adults with hyperhidrosis have never spoken to a healthcare provider about it. Further, only 18% are actually diagnosed, meaning the vast majority of the population (82%) remains undiagnosed.3 Additionally, the International Hyperhidrosis Society (IHHS) estimates one in three U.S. adults (85.2 million 4,5) are bothered by their excessive underarm sweating.Among consumers seeking aesthetic treatments, a recent survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found 58% stated they are bothered by excessive sweating.6
