ind yourself with a little too much sweat on your hands? If you’re perspiring throughout the day, you’re constantly anxious. You feel obliged to continually check your underarms and back for stains. You lose shirts to the unsightly sweat splotches that linger even after washes, hiking up your shopping budget. And you just can’t engage with your work days or personal life the way you’d like, because you’re spending so much time and energy on worrying about your sweat.
If you’re sweating even at room temperature, without any kind of exertion, things can feel somewhat hopeless. How do you stop unwanted perspiration from controlling your life?
Today, Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville can offer a source of relief. If you’ve tried and been disappointed by other sweating treatments, we’d like to introduce you to miraDry. This revolutionary sweat gland heating method gets right to the source of your sweat problem, effecting long-term results. Stuck in an ongoing state of sweating anxiety? It’s time to embrace a new, dry reality.
Understanding Your Hyperhidrosis
“Hyperhidrosis” is the medical term for excessive sweating. For individuals with hyperhidrosis, sweating occurs even when they are at a standard body temperature, and are not engaging in physical activity. The sweating tends to occur at the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and underarms.
In most people, sweating takes place when the body needs to cool down and return to a lower temperature. It can also be a by-product of anxiety. But with hyperhidrosis, the nerves that trigger sweat glands are overactive. Because many sufferers then become nervous about their sweating, this stress initiates further sweat response and kicks off a vicious cycle. While hyperhidrosis can be genetic, it may also be caused by a medical condition, medication, or menopause.
Hyperhidrosis can cause other physical complications, like a heightened risk of skin infections, eczema, and inflammation. But its most frustrating effect is the way it impacts your daily comfort and confidence levels. It’s time to make a change and leave your sweating in the past.
Excessive Sweating Treatment that Actually Works
To be fair, many sweating treatments work – it’s just that they don’t last. Why spend money and energy on a treatment if it’s only going to remain effective for six months, tops? Prescription-strength antiperspirant and Botox do manage to curb sweating, but they need to be continually readministered. With miraDry, once treatment is complete, your sweat glands remain calmed.
miraDry gently heats your sweat glands, eliminating some of those of glands to lower your sweat levels. Rather than having to reapply or reinject (as with other sweating treatments), patients need only undergo two procedures. After that, the sweat glands will not regenerate, and you will see an average 82% reduction in sweat at the treatment area. Without those glands (which comprise only 2% of the body’s sweat glands), your body will still be able to cool itself – you’ll simply remain dryer under the arms, and more confident in your daily life.
Treatment is comfortable and convenient – you’ll be able to return to your regular activities immediately afterwards. You should be careful with vigorous arm exercises, but will be able to experience daily life without a hitch.
