Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating refers to a tendency of abnormally high sweating, particularly in the axillary or underarm area. The degree of sweating in this condition is in excess of what is required to regulate the body temperature. Hyperhidrosis affects about three percent of Americans, which is more than 10 million people.

Infini for Hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis is typically managed with prescription topical medications, but they may not be very effective in the long run. Botox injections are also used to treat this condition, but repeat treatments may be required every six to nine months. Some surgical options are also available, but many patients are reluctant to choose surgery to treat hyperhidrosis.
Infini is a cutting edge, non-surgical solution for hyperhidrosis. The Infini procedure is designed to destroy the sweat glands in the affected area by using advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology. The treatment is fantastic, golden, 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. Thereafter, the provider will apply a topical numbing cream for about 20 to 30 minutes. The provider will then expose the affected area to Infini. 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, the provider will take about 15 minutes in all with Infini. 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. The provider may use a skin cooling technique along with topical anesthetic to ensure complete patient comfort.
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 over some other hyperhidrosis procedures is that Infini does not cause any hair loss, which is a beneficial aspect for male patients in particular.
