One skin problem that a number of people are struggling with today is excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis. All of us have sweat glands that make us sweat when we feel hot, have a fever, exercise, or are feeling nervous; this sweating is minimal and meant to manage your body temperature. However, some people suffer from excessive underarm sweating which means that they perspire without a reason and in excess where the sweat drips off their bodies. Not only is this embarrassing, but it also makes everyday life difficult.
There are several treatments available to help you with hyperhidrosis. Some are temporary such as a Botox injectable, antiperspirants, and medication. We offer a permanent solution, MiraDry, to our patients.
What does MiraDry do?
MiraDry is a microwave procedure that is non-invasive and helps eliminate excessive sweating from the underarms. With a light suction, we bring your sweat glands closer to the surface and then the microwave energy destroys them. The best part about the MiraDry procedure is that your sweat glands are permanently destroyed. This reduces excessive underarm sweating permanently for those who have been suffering from it for years without a solution. With 2 treatment sessions, you can get an average reduction of 82% in sweating.
Does the procedure hurt?
The discomfort during the MiraDry procedure is minimal and there is little to no downtime. Before your treatment, we will numb your underarms so that your procedure is comfortable for you. After the procedure, you may experience some common side effects like soreness and swelling but these usually resolve on their own in some time.
