Excessive sweat can negatively impact your life in a number of ways. Luckily, there is a non-surgical option that is both FDA-approved and immediately effective. Rather than constantly trying to cover up sweat, miraDry® actually works to eliminate sweat and odor glands.
The miraDry® Treatment Process
This simple procedure can be done right in the office. There are three simple steps involved with miraDry®.
- The skin is marked in the pre-determined and customized treatment area.
- Your underarm skin is numbed.
- miraDry® is done under the arms and you are ready to live sweat-free!
When the miraDry® handpiece is turned on, you will feel a slight suction of your skin. This is done to bring the skin and glands closer to the surface, making it more effective. Energy, in the form of heat, is applied to eliminate the unwanted sweat and odor glands.
The effects of this treatment are instant. Many people find they only need to have it done once. At your consultation, how many treatments you may need can be determined.
Who Is a Good Candidate for miraDry®?
Anyone who wants to be done dealing with sweat should give serious consideration to this treatment. This is a perfect option for anyone sick of the discomfort and embarrassment that comes from sweating. Those who have primary axillary hyperhidrosis, which is a fancy term for excessive sweating, are particularly good candidates.
Is miraDry® Safe?
You may be concerned that getting rid of your sweat glands is not safe. While you do need to have some sweat glands, only 2% of them are actually located underneath your arm. Eliminating these will have no negative impact on your health. Having miraDry® done does not impact sweat glands anywhere else on your body.
