Do you suffer from extremely wet underarms that leave your shirts soaked and discolored? Do you often have sweaty palms or feet, or sweat even when you are sitting down and not actively working out? If so, you may have hyperhidrosis. While the first step in treatment may be to try a prescription deodorant that offers high-powered, clinical protection, this is not enough for every patient. Instead, some respond better to newer treatments, such as ThermiDry.
ThermiDry can be used for hyperhidrosis by disabling the sweat glands in your underarms. With only a single treatment, you can experience lasting results that will have you feeling dryer in no time and more confident whenever you around others. You will no longer have to worry about how you look or smell whether you are at work, the gym or home.
A ThermiDry treatment uses a minimally invasive probe that is inserted in multiple spots throughout each of your underarms. The tiny probe is moved in and out of your skin and emits radio frequency energy the entire time. It is the radiofrequency energy that stops your sweat glands from working as they usually do.
Your treatment will begin with a consultation during which our provider will determine if you are a good fit for a ThermiDry treatment. If you are, we will immediately get you scheduled for your treatment and may even be able to treat you right away.
You can expect your treatment to last approximately one hour. When you arrive, we will cleanse the area, then begin using the ThermiDry probe throughout the affected area. Following the procedure, your underarms may look red, but this will quickly fade. You should notice results within two weeks as your sweat glands continue dying. Results should be long-lasting although some of our patients do have occasional hyperactivity of any of their remaining sweat glands. The length of results will be determined by how many of the sweat glands are deactivated.
ThermiDry treatment is very safe, and most patients are pleased with the results. In fact, many of our patients who have previously received Botox for hyperhidrosis are even more pleased with this treatment because of the long-term results. The treatment is quick and comfortable, and you can immediately go back to your normal daily tasks. If you are embarrassed over the amount of underarm sweat that you have or if you have to change your shirt several times during the day because of perspiration, we encourage you to contact us today at Youthful Endeavors to determine if ThermiDry may be right for you.
