Perspiration helps regulate the body’s temperature. When temperature rises, we sweat to keep our bodies cool. Under normal circumstances, the body’s cooling mechanism kicks in to counteract overheating due to warm environment or physical exertion, then shuts off when the body temperature normalizes. Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, occurs when the body’s thermoregulatory system is overactive, causing a person to sweat unpredictably. This excessive sweating can cause embarrassing moments such as underarm sweat stains during a social gathering. Science & Beauty in New York is pleased to offer ThermiDry, an advanced, minimally-invasive injectable treatment that can treat excessive sweating.
Individuals who have tried other forms of antiperspirants and failed to control or maintain their sweat are good candidates for ThermiDry. If excessive sweating is causing a hindrance on your lifestyle, ThermiDry might be the solution for you.
A straightforward and effective procedure, ThermiDry can alleviate the embarrassment of abnormal sweating. ThermiDry uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to disable sweat-producing glands. During the treatment, a heat-emitting probe is inserted near the axillary sweat glands located in the underarms. The heat produced by the radiofrequency energy causes the sweat glands to shut down. To ensure patient comfort, a local anesthetic is administered prior to the injectable treatment. The treatment typically takes about one hour to complete and does not require any downtime. ThermiDry is an excellent alternative to surgery and lasts longer than other minimally-invasive treatments, such as Botox.
