What is miraDry?
miraDry is the only non-surgical, FDA-cleared treatment that treats hyperhidrosis of the armpits, permanently reducing excessive sweating. During the treatment, you will sit in a reclined position. Your provider will then mark the customized treatment area. Your underarms will be numbed to help ensure a comfortable treatment experience. Then, the special miraDry handpiece will be used to treat the underarm area. At our office, we have the latest miraDry model, so patients only need to undergo 1-2 treatments to eliminate excessive sweating!
What are the benefits of miraDry?
There are numerous benefits to choosing miraDry for your sweat reduction treatment. Those who experience excessive sweating often resort to deodorant and antiperspirant with aluminum components. Aluminum keeps the body from sweating, but some question its safety and have begun studying a link between aluminum and certain diseases like Alzheimer’s and cancer. Choosing miraDry eliminates the need for these aluminum deodorants and the possible health risks and high price tags they come with. As well as health benefits, miraDry can save you time, money, and stress when it comes to keeping your clothes clean from sweat. Having dry underarms can help you lead a more confident and comfortable life.
Who is a Candidate?
Individuals who are bothered by excessive underarm sweat, tired of seeing underarm stains on their shirts, and are seeking a natural, toxin-free lifestyle can often benefit from miraDry. However, a consultation is needed to help determine if this treatment is right for you.
How does miraDry Work?
After your underarm area has been numbed and is ready for treatment, your clinician will place the miraDry handpiece directly on the skin. Then, you will feel a slight suction as the skin glands are brought closer to the surface. miraWave™ energy is then delivered and the sweat glands are destroyed. Controlled cooling is applied to the treatment area the entire time to ensure your comfort.
Is there Downtime?
Downtime from miraDry is minimal to none, which makes this a great treatment option for those on the go. Most patients can return to regular activities, including work, immediately after treatment. Exercise and vigorous activity can be resumed within several days.
If you are tired of living with hyperhidrosis, contact our office today to schedule a miraDry consultation! We will work with you to ensure long-lasting results for a more comfortable you.
