If you avoid certain situations because you’re worried about visible and excessive sweating, it’s likely you have hyperhidrosis. This is a medical condition which causes sweating beyond the normal and appropriate amount for any situation, and it can have a big impact on your lifestyle and confidence. Fortunately, there are options for treatment. miraDry is one non-invasive option that can achieve long-term, effective results with just a couple of treatments, so here’s what to know about it.
How Does miraDry Work?
miraDry uses a specialized handpiece to administer electromagnetic energy to the underarm area. This process causes the sweat glands to cease sweat production without pain or discomfort. Excessive sweating is often caused by sweat glands being continually active outside of situations where it’s appropriate to sweat. miraDry stops this activity while still allowing the millions of other sweat glands on your body to function as normal. The underarms account for just 1% of your sweat glands. It also eliminates the odor that comes from sweat glands and after the second treatment many report not needing to use deodorant any longer. Many choose Miradry treatment for this reason alone.
Loved by Experts
miraDry is FDA-approved to treat hyperhidrosis and has a long history of great results. In fact, a single treatment can reduce sweating by as much as 80% in patients with hyperhidrosis. This means you can get quick, easy treatment that lasts and can greatly reduce your symptoms. Additionally, many experts find that patients don’t realize their excessive sweating has a name or easy treatment option until learning about miraDry. This makes it one of the best options on the market for hyperhidrosis. Many individuals report no longer needing deodorant after the second treatment, a decrease in dry cleaning, and no longer have the yellowing that can happen in underarms of white t-shirts.
A Rare Condition
Research shows that over 30 million Americans have hyperhidrosis. However, only a small percentage of people seek medical attention. Experts estimate that the number of people with this condition is almost the same as acne. However, hyperhidrosis has quick and effective treatment in the form of miraDry, meaning patients are more likely to seek out help.
Treatment for Everyone
Hyperhidrosis affects many different people and demographics, but miraDry comes with few risks. This makes it an effective option for nearly anyone who experiences excessive sweating and odor. Additionally, with significant results after a single treatment, it’s a much more affordable and effective treatment method than the traditional Botox regimen.
Why Choose miraDry Over Other Treatments?
Although you can manage hyperhidrosis using iontophoresis or Botox, patients often find mixed results with these options. They can also require ongoing treatment to maintain your results, taking a toll on your schedule and your wallet. When miraDry can achieve a drastic reduction in sweating with just a single, non-surgical treatment, it’s an excellent option over other traditional treatments. The added bonus is it eliminates the odor from the targeted sweat gland and the need for deodorant.
