The Science Behind Sweat Control: How Brella Patches Work


Sweating is a natural and essential bodily function, essential for regulating temperature. But for many people, especially those with hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating can be a real source of discomfort and embarrassment. Traditional sweat control methods often contain harsh chemicals or leave residue. 

Thankfully, innovative solutions like the Brella patch offer a safe and effective alternative. Let’a dive into the science behind Brella sweat control patches, explaining how they work to manage sweat production without compromising your health.

Understanding Sweat Production

Sweat glands are located throughout our skin, with the highest concentration under our arms (axillae). When our body temperature rises due to exercise, hot weather, or even stress, the nervous system triggers these glands to produce sweat. Sweat is a watery fluid containing electrolytes and waste products. As it evaporates from the skin’s surface, it cools us down.

Brella’s Targeted Approach

Unlike traditional deodorants that mask sweat odor, Brella takes a targeted approach to sweat production. The patch utilizes a unique technology called Targeted Alkali Thermolysis (TAT). Here’s how it works:

  • The Patch Material: Brella is a thin, single-use patch containing a layer of pure metallic sodium with a silicone backing. Sodium is a highly reactive element that readily interacts with water.
  • Sweat Activation: When the patch is applied to the underarm, it comes into contact with sweat produced by the sweat glands.
  • A Controlled Reaction: The sodium in the patch reacts with the water in sweat, generating a small amount of heat. This localized heat creates a microthermal reaction within the sweat gland.
  • Long-Term Reduction: This controlled thermal energy is precisely targeted to inactivate some of the sweat glands. The inactivated glands are significantly less productive for a period of 3-4 months, resulting in a dramatic reduction in underarm sweat production.

Safety and Effectiveness

Brella’s TAT technology is a safe and effective approach to sweat control.Here’s why Brella stands out:

  • Non-invasive: No needles or lasers are involved.
  • Aluminum-free: Unlike some antiperspirants, Brella avoids using aluminum, which can raise safety concerns for some users.

Clinically Proven: Brella has undergone clinical trials and is FDA-cleared, demonstrating its effectiveness and safety.

Long-Lasting Results for Confidence on the Go:

A single Brella treatment offers significant sweat reduction for 3-4 months in most individuals. This extended period allows you to enjoy sweat-free confidence during workouts, social events, or simply while navigating the summer heat.
