The Benefits of Thermi: Revolutionizing Sweat Control and Skin Tightening
August 8, 2014
Thermi-RF, our latest technology at The Advanced Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, tightens loose, sagging skin from the inside out, helping patients to have a sleeker, slimmer, more toned look… but that’s not all! Thermi injectable radiofrequency now gives skilled plastic surgeons like Dr. Newman the power to answer the prayers of patients suffering from excessive, unpredictable sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis.
What is Hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes people to sweat even when their bodies are at rest, even when the temperature is cool and comfortable. Excessive, unpredictable sweating due to overactive sweat glands can cause wetness to appear on clothing and may result in sweat stains and general discomfort. People suffering from hyperhidrosis may find that standard anti-perspirant products do not effectively treat their sweating problems. Excessive sweating also may impact one’s self esteem, confidence level, and emotional well-being.
How Does Thermi Treat Hyperhidrosis
The Thermi device treats hyperhidrosis in the underarm area, providing sweat control by effectively disabling the function of the sweat glands. ThermiDry treatments alleviate extreme perspiration by applying controlled radiofrequency energy-induced heat to the subdermal sweat glands. The targeted radiofrequency passes through the nerves and heats the sweat glands, rendering them inactive, resulting in long-lasting reduction in perspiration from the armpits. The procedure is almost completely noninvasive and delivers immediate results—a winning combination for patients who’ve already suffered enough.
What Else Does Thermi Do
Dr. Newman uses Thermi-RF to effectively tighten loose skin with a virtually noninvasive treatment that works from the inside out. Radiofrequency energy heats tissues inside the skin with a very fine probe, melting away fat and creating collagen—the perfect recipe for a slimmer, sleeker look. The skin becomes more elastic and patients regain their radiant, youthful skin. Thermi-RF treatments can be applied to almost any part of the body—thighs, tummy, back, arms, even the neck and face.
