Perspiration is a perfectly natural way your body regulates its internal temperature. Even the coolest customers sweat once in a while. But if you constantly find your shirts drenched whatever the situation or weather, you may have a condition called hyperhidrosis. Over-the-counter methods may not be effective for treating this condition, which is why The Dermatology, Laser & Vein Center offers ThermiDry for Hyperhidrosis.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
Perspiration is a mechanism that your internal thermostat uses to regulate your body temperature. Moisture forms under your arms and near other pulse points, evaporates, and cools your skin. It happens any time your temperature is raised, whether by heat, activity, or nervousness.
Those living with hyperhidrosis have overactive sweat glands. The cause can be genetic or due to a medical condition. Sufferers seem to constantly perspire regardless of external circumstances or activity. Showering and regular use of deodorants or antiperspirants have no effect. It’s a condition that can lead to self-consciousness, embarrassment, and frequent clothing changes. If it begins suddenly, occurs over a long period of time, or is accompanied by other symptoms, a checkup is in order to make sure there are no health concerns at the foundation of your hyperhidrosis.
How Does ThermiDry Help Control This Condition?
In the meantime, there’s help available if you’re living with hyperhidrosis. ThermiDry for hyperhidrosis is a minimally-invasive therapy that targets overactive sweat glands to deactivate them and limit their production of perspiration. The treatment employs radiofrequency technology that’s introduced using Thermal Image Guidance via a small probe to provide a natural, chemical-free solution.
Although ThermiDry for hyperhidrosis is not a surgical procedure, it is administered under local anesthetic. The treatment area is very inconspicuous, and there’s no scarring afterward or extended recovery time. What you will experience is the freedom to dress how you please and live your life without concerns about damp clothing or unsightly underarm stains. One session is all it takes to see a difference, and the results of the treatment usually last for several years.
