Medical background and objectives: Hyperhidrosis primarily affects 2,8% of the American population. It is a condition that makes an impact on the social development of the individuals affected thus provoking a social phobia. A variety of options are available to treat Hyperhidrosis which include topical, systemic, injectable and surgical medication. The objective of the literature’s systematic revision is to determine the effectiveness and safety-assurance of the devices emitting microwaves, non-ablative radio frequencies and a micro focused ultrasound systems for the treatment of primary Hyperhidrosis. Materials and methods: A systematic revision of articles obtained from the database was carried out: Medline, Cochrane, Embase, Ovid and Scielo. Randomized controlled clinical articles were included and quasi-experimental essays dating back to 2011 where the use of these devices and the management of the primary Hyperhidrosis was evaluated.. Results: Total selected items were 21. It was found that with the three devices the marks between 1 and 2 within the Hyperhidrosis Severity Scale in 3 studies we found improvement in the quality of life; the adverse events are transitory. It is more frequent with microwave emitting device Conclusion: First systematic revision of the literature dealing with this three devices for the treatment of primary Hyperhidrosis. It is expected to provide to the existing literature recommendations regarding the effectiveness and assurance so that they can be applied on patients diagnosed with primary Hyperhidrosis.
