Hyperhidrosis, what’s that?
Sweating is a totally normal and even essential phenomenon in the thermoregulation of the body. The body temperature rises internally, due to stress, physical effort…and the sweat glands produce sweat, which, when evaporating, cools the body from the outside. Hyperhidrosis is a production of perspiration that exceeds the needs necessary for the simple regulation of body temperament. It becomes uncontrollable and uncomfortable.
Treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis
At Skincenters, we have the alternative to botulinum toxin, and unlike the latter, the effects are permanent. Lutronic’s INFINI device uses radio frequency and micro-needles, this procedure targets and reduces the size of your sweat glands; however, the glands remain intact and will allow the body to continue the sweating process, but in reasonable amounts. The procedure does not require any interruptions or changes to your lifestyle routine. Each treatment lasts approximately 15 minutes, allowing you to get in and out quickly. 45 minutes before the treatment, we will anesthetize the area with a cream, and then use the device to target the sweat glands and reduce their size. Usually two passes over the armpit area at three different levels or parameters are performed. A single treatment may be sufficient in some cases, but on average we have found that 2-3 treatments offer the best effects. The results can be felt after a few days, but in general it takes 3 weeks to 1 month.
