Excessive sweating is an embarrassing problem. When you sweat excessively it is a medical condition termed as Hyperhidrosis. Approximately three percent of North American population suffer from excessive sweating. The excess sweat can be generalised all over the body or in more targeted areas such as the armpits, palms of the hands, and soles of the feet. Hyperhidrosis becomes mostly noticeable after puberty. Stressful situations such as examinations, job interviews, or an important date often aggravate sweating. Fortunately, Infini RF treatment works very well as most of over the counter antiperspirants do not control hyperhidrosis.
Infini for Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
Hyperhidrosis is typically treated with Botox injections on set interval of more or less every six months.
Infini RF is a cutting edge, non-surgical solution for hyperhidrosis available at Terra Atma Medi Spa. The Infini RF procedure is designed to destroy the sweat glands in the affected area by using advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology. The treatment is effective and completely non-invasive. Most patients will not experience any notable discomfort or downtime.
The Infini hyperhidrosis treatment begins with an application of the “Starch Iodine” test to the axilla in order to mark the specific areas of excessive sweating and apply a topical numbing cream for about 20 to 30 minutes covered under thin plastic wrap. The provider will then expose the affected area to Infini RF . The RF energy delivered through the device will cause heating and coagulation at the ends of its insulated needles. An expert will be able to perform the treatment at the right level in order to destroy the sweat glands in the targeted area. Multiple passes will be performed at varying levels in order to achieve more comprehensive outcomes. To treat both underarms, it will take about 15 minutes to treat affected area. No downtime is involved in this procedure. Results will start appearing in about one week, and will be permanent because the destroyed glands do not have the ability to regenerate.
In about one month, the provider will perform a repeat procedure to ensure any remaining sweat glands are also repeated. The patient will not need any pain meds during or after the procedure.
In a single treatment session, a patient can expect to achieve about 50 to 75 percent improvement in their sweat condition. While many patients are satisfied with just one treatment, some may choose to undergo two to three treatments for more comprehensive outcomes. Another advantage with Infini RF over some other hyperhidrosis procedures is that Infini does not cause any hair loss, which is a beneficial aspect for male patients in particular.
