If you’re sweating incessantly, you’re not living life as usual. And feeling comfortable, confident, and dry under the arms is something that every one of us deserves. Unfortunately, chronic, excessive sweating takes a toll on one’s life – and it can be tough to tame.
Although past excessive sweating treatments were either temporary or surgical, there’s now something delightfully in-between. Laser Skin Solutions offers miraDry, a new kind of sweat treatment. It’s non-surgical, non-invasive, and yet permanent.
Working to diagnose and understand your own hyperhidrosis, and learn more about whether miraDry could be the answer? Read on for a little sweating FAQ, and then contact us to get started with treatment.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
This term is the medical world’s way of describing sweat that just won’t quit. Normal individuals sweat only when there’s a reason to do so, whether it’s the body trying to cool itself off or excessive anxiety. But if you have hyperhidrosis, you sweat for seemingly no reason. Your sweat glands are active even when there’s no physical trigger – at normal body temperature, and without anxiety present. This is most commonly a problem at the hands, feet, and underarms.
Nonstop sweating makes you uncomfortable throughout the day. You obsessively check your underarms for signs of sweat, both at work and in social situations. Your sweaty palms make you nervous to shake hands, or touch other people. Sweat glands in the feet may prevent you from wearing sandals or other revealing footwear. Overall, there’s a significant increase in your day-to-day anxiety.
In addition to causing the daily discomfort of unnecessary sweat, hyperhidrosis can cause other issues:
- Skin infections
Why Can’t I Stop Sweating?
The cause of hyperhidrosis is overactive sweat glands. They may be prompted into action by:
- Ongoing anxiety
- Some medications
- Low blood sugar
- Overactive thyroid
- Some cancers
…or they may just be sweating excessively, without a more serious underlying cause.
What are my Hyperhidrosis Treatment Options?
As we mentioned in the introduction, hyperhidrosis treatments have been around for some time. The problem is that they don’t accomplish everything the patient is truly looking for. Options like Botox paralyze the sweat glands, but these effects wear off, and treatment needs to be repeated. Surgery will remove the problematic sweat glands, but this is complicated, expensive, and requires downtime.
This is why we’re so excited to offer miraDry. This treatment heats the sweat glands, destroying a portion of them. The treatment site experiences a significant reduction in sweat, and the patient gets back to life as usual – right away. miraDry requires only a few treatments, and then the results are permanently in place.
With miraDry, you gain total confidence in your dry underarms. And that confidence changes the way you work, socialize, and live your daily life. Stop feeling controlled by nonstop sweating, and seize miraDry as a hyperhidrosis solution.
