People all over the world deal with and worry about excessive sweat. If you are one of these people, miraDry might be the answer. Rather than constantly using deodorant to fight the symptoms of sweating, miraDry aims to eliminate it completely. The process was designed with people who suffer from hyperhidrosis, but can be done for anyone over 18 who worries about how much they sweat.
The miraDry treatment is cleared by the FDA. It is the only non-invasive option available to people who want to reduce the amount they sweat. It can be done right in our office. Appointments are often as short as an hour and then you can go right back to your life.
What is the miraDry Process?
This treatment attacks and eliminates the sweat and odor glands under your arms. It prevents sweat from happening in the first place. A doctor works with the patient to map out their glands and decide where to treat. The first step is to mark the underarm. After that, the area is numbed so there is no pain during or after treatment. Next, the hand-piece that does the work is placed directly on your skin. You will probably notice a slight suction. This is because the device pulls the glands and skin closer so it can be even more effective. Finally, miraWave energy is used on your skin. While this is happening, a continuous cooling process is happening in order to protect the delicate skin under your arms.
Who Can Benefit From miraDry?
On top of sufferers of hyperhidrosis, the miraDry process is a good option for people who are sick of deodorant. Many people are starting to question how healthy the chemicals in those antiperspirant products are. Additionally, they usually do not last throughout the day. Deodorants can leave unsightly marks on dark clothing. They also sometimes leave the wearer feeling sticky by the end of the day.
Is it Safe to Get Rid of Sweat Glands?
While it is true that sweat glands are necessary, that does not mean you need them under your arms! Of the 2 million sweat glands you have on your body, only about 2% of them are actually located in the armpit. The miraDry procedure will not affect the sweat glands anywhere else on your body.
How Quickly Does miraDry Work?
You can expect to see results after just one treatment. The effects of miraDry are instant. As a matter of fact, some patients only need one treatment. This is something that can be determined during a consultation with a doctor.
