Treatment for Axillary Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
he ThermiDry® percutaneous ablation of axillary sweat glands has been designed for patients with excessive sweating called hyperhydrosis – a condition characterized by abnormally increased perspiration in excess of that required for the normal regulation of body temperature.
This condition affects 2.8% of Americans, some 7.8 million people, and half of these suffer from axillary hyperhidrosis. Botox® will help dry up these hyperactive sweat glands but very large quantities (100 units per side), high cost, painful and frequent injections are required to control this condition with Botox®. The ThermiDry® radiofrequency treatment can treat this condition equally effectively by heating the subdermal glands and knocking out their function during a one hour, minimally invasive procedure.
This is the most effective non-surgical single session treatment for armpit sweating. Thermi-Dry heats up the sweat glands to a temperature which damages them permanently, ending up with a dry armpit. The procedure takes about an hour.
Some swelling and soreness is expected during the following week, which will resolve uneventfully.
Thermi Dry is the ultimate solution for people who are tired of being injected on the armpits 2-3 times a year.
