ThermiDry is a micro invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency-derived heat to treat your over active sweat glands.
Axillary hyperhidrosis is the medical term used to describe excessive sweating due to overactive sweat glands.
Your ThermiDry treatment will begin with the precise identification of your axillary sweat glands with the use of a starch-iodine test. Once the exact sweat gland distribution has been mapped out, Dr Porcaro will numb the area with a local anesthetic. After Dr Porcaro makes a tiny needle puncture of the skin, a very thin probe will be advanced immediately beneath the sweat glands.
While Dr Porcaro carefully controls the temperature of the radiofrequency ThermiDry probe, heat will be safely delivered to your sweat glands, disabling them while your skin temperature is continuously monitored.
A ThermiDry treatment, which lasts about an hour, is painless and involves the use of a local anesthetic only; there’s no need for sedation. The recovery is immediate; you will have no restrictions after the treatment.
The results are also immediate and, so far, have lasted over one year!
The procedure is a less expensive alternative to Botox injections, which can become costly, since repeated injections are required to disable the sweat glands with Botox.
If you are troubled with severe underarm sweating, you may find long term relief with ThermiDry.
