ThermiDry is a minimally invasive medical procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to treat excessive underarm sweating, a condition known as axillary hyperhidrosis. The treatment aims to target and disable the sweat glands in the underarms to reduce or stop excessive sweating.

 

Key points about ThermiDry for excessive underarm sweat:

 

1. Procedure: During the ThermiDry procedure, a small probe is inserted into the underarm skin, delivering controlled RF energy to the sweat glands. The heat generated by the RF energy selectively damages the sweat glands, leading to a reduction in sweating.

 

2. Targeted Treatment: ThermiDry is a targeted treatment that focuses on the sweat glands, leaving the surrounding skin and tissues unaffected.

 

3. Local Anesthesia: The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia to minimize discomfort during the treatment.

 

4. Safety: ThermiDry is considered safe when performed by a qualified and experienced medical professional. The procedure has a low risk of adverse effects, and there is minimal downtime associated with it.

 

5. Results: Some patients may experience a reduction in underarm sweating immediately after the treatment. However, the full results become noticeable gradually over several weeks as the sweat glands are affected by the RF energy. Results can vary among individuals, and some patients may require additional treatment sessions for optimal results.

 

6. Duration of Results: The results of ThermiDry can last for several months to a year or more, depending on the individual and the severity of their hyperhidrosis. Periodic maintenance treatments may be recommended to sustain the benefits.

 

7. Candidate Suitability: ThermiDry is most suitable for individuals with axillary hyperhidrosis who have not achieved satisfactory results with other conservative treatments, such as antiperspirants, oral medications, or botulinum toxin injections (Botox).

 

8. Considerations: While ThermiDry can effectively reduce excessive underarm sweating, it is essential to have realistic expectations about the treatment outcomes. As with any medical procedure, there may be potential risks and complications, such as skin irritation or infection, which should be discussed with the treating physician.

 

As with any medical procedure, individuals considering ThermiDry for excessive underarm sweat should have a consultation with a qualified dermatologist or a licensed medical professional who specializes in hyperhidrosis treatments. The provider will assess the severity of the hyperhidrosis, review the patient's medical history, and determine if ThermiDry is the right treatment option for them. They will also provide pre- and post-treatment instructions to ensure a safe and successful procedure.
