Excessive sweating in the armpits can lead to self-consciousness and body odor. Where antiperspirants and deodorants fall short, there is ThermiDry™. At Youthful Endeavors, this treatment can be used to reduce underarm sweat without any harsh side effects or downtime.
With two convenient locations in Green Bay and Manitowoc, Youthful Endeavors is led by Dr. Nolan Hetz. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how our treatments can keep your underarms drier for long-lasting results.
What is ThermiDry™?
Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, in the underarms affects millions of men and women per year. Rather than relying on over-the-counter treatments with minimal to no results, ThermiDry™ outlines and targets your specific sweat pattern to significantly reduce the amount of sweat produced in your underarms.
How Does this Treatment Help Correct Excessive Sweating and Hyperhidrosis?
This micro-invasive procedure begins with a starch iodine test to identify your axillary sweat glands and map out your unique sweat distribution. The area is then numbed, and a small point of entry is created for the insertion of a very thin probe beneath the sweat glands. The ThermiRF™ system then delivers non-invasive radiofrequency energy to targeted areas, where it converts to heat and effectively disables sweat glands.
During treatment, the temperature of your skin is continuously monitored, preventing the skin from overheating. This procedure takes about an hour and typically requires no anesthesia.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Most patients feel immediate relief after treatment and experience no restrictions to normal activities. Results can last from one to two years with optimal treatment, but results may vary. During your consultation, Dr. Hetz and our medical team will assess your individual condition and outline a treatment plan that best suits your needs.
Who is a Good Candidate for this Treatment?
When the sweat glands under the arms sweat excessively in normal temperatures and when the body is relaxed, you may be experiencing hyperhidrosis. Once this has been properly identified and diagnosed by Dr. Hetz and our medical team, we will assess your health, medical history, and other factors to determine if this treatment is right for you.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Radiofrequency energy has been used in medicine for many years and has advanced into a safe and effective therapy that has been clinically tested with a high rate of patient satisfaction. Connective tissues and the skin surface are unharmed during this treatment, requiring no downtime or healing period.
