One skin problem that several people are facing today is excessive sweating. Also known as hyperhidrosis, this is a condition where people profusely sweat constantly. All of us sweat at times when we feel hot, exercise, feel nervous, or when we have a fever but this sweating is minimal and is your body’s response to managing temperature. Excessive sweating, on the other hand, is a crippling condition which makes life difficult for the sufferer.
There are many options today to deal with excessive sweating. While some are temporary options like antiperspirants, medicines, and the injectable Botox; we offer a permanent solution for your excessive sweating through the procedure known as MiraDry.
What is MiraDry?
MiraDry is a noninvasive procedure which uses microwave technology which helps to eliminate the condition of excessive sweating. During the procedure, your sweat glands are brought closer to the surface using a light suction and then the microwave energy waves are used to destroy the sweat glands. One advantage of the MiraDry procedure is that it permanently destroys your sweat glands. This means your hyperhidrosis is completely and permanently reduced. If you were struggling with this condition for years, you must book a consultation with us to understand the procedure more. Many people require 2-3 sessions to achieve their desired results.
Does the MiraDry procedure hurt?
There is some minimal discomfort during the MiraDry procedure. Your underarms will be made numb to make it more comfortable. The procedure has little-to-no downtime, many patients go about their normal day afterward. There may be certain side effects like swelling and soreness; however, these concerns resolve on their own soon.
