Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a medical condition that can be embarrassing or uncomfortable. While everyone experiences sweating, those with hyperhidrosis have an overactive sympathetic nerve, leading to the overproduction of sweat. Even if the temperature is not warm, you are not excessively hot, or you are not physically active, you will most likely sweat.
ThermiDry is a ground-breaking treatment that addresses excessive sweating by destroying sweat and odor-producing glands, reducing the amount of sweat your body can produce. Discover how ThermiDry addresses excessive sweating, helping you feel comfortable and confident.
How Does ThermiDry Work?
ThermiDry is a radiofrequency device that utilizes heat energy to damage sweat and odor-producing glands. During the treatment, a small probe is inserted into the skin, and an electrode emits radiofrequency energy. The entire process is carefully monitored with a thermometer and camera that track the temperature inside and outside of the body. This allows Dr. Salzman to emit the precise amount of energy needed to target your sweat glands.
When the radiofrequency energy is used on the sweat glands, it damages them, making them unable to produce sweat. The result is that you will sweat less, and the targeted areas are drier.
Following the procedure, you should be able to return to your normal routine. Although you may experience some swelling or discomfort, this should subside in a few days.
Are the Results Permanent?
Results from your ThermiDry treatment are immediate and should last approximately two to five years. You can repeat the treatment to get long-term results.
