According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society, three percent of the world’s population suffers from excessive sweating. With over 220 million people affected, treatment options have ranged from special antiperspirants to surgical procedures.
With miraDry®, you can finally get FDA-approved treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis, which is the medical term for excessive underarm sweating.
Why Consider miraDry®?
There are a lot of different reasons for people to seek treatment for their excessive sweating, including:
- Boosting self-confidence. If you are always worried about pit stains or odor, you may be held back in your social and professional interactions.
- Clothing cost savings. Clothing can be stained and destroyed by excessive sweat, which can really add up over the course of your life. This is especially a problem for those who need to dress professionally for work.
- Resolving intimacy issues. How we smell plays a huge role in sexuality and offensive odors can hamper your love life. By getting proper treatment, you can feel more confident in the bedroom.
How Does MiraDry® Work?
miraDry® is a non-surgical procedure that heats sweat glands. Once they are destroyed, they cannot grow back. This leads to less sweating and less odor.
The energy is harmless to other tissues and leaves the top layers of skin cool and unaffected. For best results, most patients may have two treatments spaces a few months apart.
What Does the Procedure Entail?
miraDry® is done right in the office. The energy is applied in a series of bursts. Treatment time may vary. After that, you’re free to resume normal activities and can usually start exercising again within a few days.
You may want to take a mild over-the-counter pain medication or use ice packs, but the discomfort is usually quite mild and doesn’t last long.
What Are the Possible Side Effects?
For up to five weeks post-procedure, some people may experience tingling in their armpits or upper arms. Other than these issues, miraDry® is safe and effective.
You don’t have to worry about increased sweating in other areas to compensate, either, because your armpits only house about two percent of the body’s sweat glands.
