Everybody agrees that excess sweating is unpleasant. However, we understand why sweating is necessary. It is part of our body’s cooling system. It’s a way that our body helps regulate our temperature when we are in a hot environment, when we are under stress, or when we are feeling frustrated. Unfortunately, people who are battling with hyperhidrosis sweat excessively for no reason. When everyone else is dry, an individual battling with hyperhidrosis is dripping with perspiration. Understandably, this is an uncomfortable and embarrassing situation for them. If you are dealing with hyperhidrosis, miraDry® may be the solution you’re looking for.
What is miraDry®?
miraDry® is a non-invasive treatment that has helped a number of individuals battling with hyperhidrosis to find the relief that they need. This treatment takes advantage of microwave technology. It is designed to eliminate sweat and odor glands in your armpits. This treatment is safe. It has been reviewed and cleared by the FDA since 2015 for use on individuals who have hyperhidrosis in their armpits.
During the treatment, a handheld device is used to transmit electromagnetic energy directly underneath the skin of the targeted area. The goal is to attack the sweat glands. The device creates heat, which ultimately destroys the underarm sweat glands. At the same time, a controlled cooling device is used to protect the external layers of the skin.
Once the treatment is done, you should be able to go right back to your everyday activities and resume your work as if nothing happened. You may need to wait to engage in vigorous exercise. However, once this very short waiting period has passed, you will be able to engage in vigorous exercise once again.
What are the Benefits?
This is a quick treatment that is performed in the comfort of our office. After this treatment, you will be able to better manage your hyperhidrosis. Individuals who have this treatment usually see a major reduction in underarm sweat.
For individuals who have been suffering with hyperhidrosis, this treatment is a game changer. It means that now they can wear dark clothing with confidence. They can go dancing and be close to other people and not worry that their excessive sweating is going to be a source of shame or embarrassment.
