ThermiDRY™

Excessive sweat can be a source of embarrassment for many, and the thought of using toxins as a treatment may seem daunting. It’s time to consider ThermiDry™, a toxin-free, micro-invasive treatment for the reduction of excess sweat. 

 

What is ThermiDry™?

FDA-approved ThermiDry™ uses temperature-controlled radio frequency placed beneath the skin’s surface to precisely target the axillary sweat glands. ThermiDry™ utilizes ThermiRF™ technology 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 to help 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.

ThermiDry™ Recovery Period

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