For many people, excessive sweating is a struggle that changes the face of their day to day lives, affecting how they approach social situations. For others, the normal sweat and odor they have may be bothersome, especially for those who work in fields where there are high physical demands. miraDry is a treatment capable of permanently reducing or eliminating underarm sweat. It is non-invasive and toxin free. To find out if the treatment is right for you, contact the Advanced Laser & Cosmetic Center.
What Is MiraDry?
miraDry® is an in-office procedure used to permanently treat excessive sweating. It uses controlled energy, focused on the underarm area, to penetrate beneath the dermis into the area’s sweat glands. The process eliminates the glands responsible for making you sweat.
Sweat glands are not capable of regeneration, so the treatment produces lasting and significant results. The therapy is considered safe for the treatment of hyperhidrosis.
Eliminating the sweat glands under the arms will not affect your body’s ability to regulate its temperature, as only two percent of all the body’s sweat glands are located in the area.
What Happens During Treatment?
During treatment, local anesthesia is used on the treatment area to provide you with maximal comfort. The sweat glands in the target area will be neutralized once you are fully numb. The treatment typically takes about one hour to administer. Little to no downtime is usually needed following treatment.
You should be able to resume your regular daily activities. The exception is exercise and strenuous physical activity, which should be avoided for the first few days. Our team in Ohio will provide you with all the pre and post-care information you need.
What Are the Results Like?
Most patients experience an immediate reduction of underarm odor and sweating after treatment. An added benefit to treatment is that the area may experience reduced hair growth. The results are permanent, and one treatment is sufficient for most patients.
When needed, two treatments can be administered to maximize results. If you opt for two treatments, they will be spaced about three months apart, and our qualified team in Ohio will help develop the right treatment plan for you. It’s important to remember that results do vary as each individual is unique.
Am I A Good Candidate?
