Axillary hyperhidrosis is abnormally frequent sweating in the underarm area, in excess of that required to regulate one’s body temperature. It is a rare condition that affects about 3% of Canadians. Treatment usually is conducted using prescription topical medications. Botox is highly effective for this condition, but requires re-injection at least every 6-9 months and is fairly costly, at $1200-1500 per treatment.
Infini brings a whole new perspective to the hyperhidrosis treatment paradigm. Infini can treat all areas of hyperhidrosis (except for the hands and feet) with minimal risk. The heat from the Infini – High Intensity Focused Radiofrequency (HIFR) – is placed at the level of the sweat glands. These glands reside at the deep dermal layer or upper subcutaneous level. By using just topical anesthesia, the procedure can be performed with minimal discomfort in about 15 minutes for both axilla.
There is no post-procedure downtime or activity restrictions. Clients estimate that they get 50 – 75% improvement in their sweat in one treatment. Results will be permanent because once the glands are destroyed, they don’t grow back. Most people are happy after only one treatment, but up to 3 total treatments are safely allowed if necessary.
