ThermiDRY™ in Detroit, MI

Excessive sweat can be a source of embarrassment for many and the thought of using toxins to treat it may seem daunting. It’s time to consider ThermiDry™, a toxin-free, micro-invasive treatment option for the reduction of excess sweat. Regain your confidence from profuse sweating with ThermiDry™. Birmingham Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Ahmet R. Karaca, M.D., offers ThermiDry™ for men and women who live in and around Detroit, Farmington Hills and the surrounding communities of Michigan.

What is ThermiDry™?

Using innovative radio frequency energy, ThermiDry™ targets axillary sweat glands to reduce excessive sweat in people who suffer from hyperhidrosis.

FDA-approved ThermiDry™ uses temperature-controlled radio frequency energy placed beneath the skin’s surface to precisely target the axillary sweat glands. ThermiDry™ utilizes ThermiRF™ technology, which is also FDA approved for nerve ablation and other cosmetic concerns.

How Does ThermiDry™ Work?

Treatment is micro-invasive and involves placing a tiny probe underneath the skin via a fine-gauged hypodermic needle. Tiny energy bursts from the probe help to disable the targeted sweat glands. Temperature is gauged and monitored by the probe and a specially-designed surface camera. This precise, dual monitoring allows for the exact, necessary energy level to be applied to the targeted treatment area in order to maximize results.

Am I A Candidate For ThermiDry™?

The following may qualify you as a candidate for ThermiDry™ treatment:

  • Managing underarm sweat is particularly time-consuming and difficult for you, or you simply cannot manage and control underarm sweat at all
  • You do not wish to use antiperspirant / deodorant products
  • You often find stains on your shirts as a result of excessive sweat
  • You must change clothes often because you have completely sweat through them
  • You find yourself dabbing away excess sweat from your underarms constantly
  • You do not wish to use toxin-based solutions to resolve excess sweat

What to Expect During Your ThermiDry™ Treatment

ThermiDry™ is micro-invasive and, therefore, a very gentle procedure. First, Dr. Karaca will apply a numbing agent or anesthetic to the area being treated to maximize comfort. Patients usually report a gentle warming sensation in the area during treatment. Depending on the size of the specific area treated, ThermiDry™ takes approximately an hour. Mild swelling can occur, but most patients will be able to return to their normal routine and activities immediately following the procedure.

Benefits of ThermiDry™

  • Find relief from excessive underarm sweat
  • Gentle, micro-invasive and doesn’t require surgery
  • Minimize or eliminate use of antiperspirants and deodorants
  • No recovery time necessary
  • Safe for all skin types

ThermiDry™ Results

Some patients may require a repeat treatment to ensure the longevity of results but typically, ThermiDry™ results last two to five years.

What Is ThermiDry™ Recovery Like?

ThermiDry™ can result in mild swelling and some discomfort, which can easily be treated with medication that you will be prescribed following the procedure. Most patients will be able to return to work and normal activity following the procedure. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor results. (One week, One month, Three months, Six months and One year)
