Many people are bothered by excess underarm sweat and odor. It is a problem that can negatively impact many areas of your life. miraDry® is a revolutionary, non-surgical option that can help. Deodorants work by trying to cover up sweat, but the miraDry® treatment actually eliminates the glands causing underarm sweating and odor. You get immediate results that last several years.
How Does miraDry® Work?
This quick and easy treatment is done in the comfort of our office. A treatment plan is custom designed for you before beginning. Your underarm will be marked based on that treatment plan to ensure you get the best results possible. The skin is also numbed prior to treatment to ensure your comfort.
The handpiece is then used on the target areas. You will feel a slight suction, but this is considered a pain-free procedure. The suction is actually bringing the sweat glands closer to the surface, making the treatment more effective. Heat is used to destroy the unwanted sweat glands. A soothing cooling is also used to help protect the outer layers of your skin.
You will notice the difference after miraDry® right away. The eliminated sweat and odor glands will not grow back. Most patients find that one session produces results. For those who sweat excessively, two treatments are recommended separated by at least 3 months. How many treatments you will need is something that can be discussed at a consultation. You will also lose some of your underarm hair with the treatment so it is like getting laser hair and sweat removal at the same time.
Is miraDry® Safe?
The short answer to this question is absolutely. Although it is true that you need sweat glands in order for your body to cool properly, only 2% of the ones you have are located underneath your arm. Losing this small percentage has no negative impact on your health. The rest of the sweat glands on your body will remain undamaged after treatment.
Who Should Consider miraDry®?
Anyone who is negatively impacted by their excess underarm sweat and odor should consider this treatment. It is widely used in the treatment of primary axillary hyperhidrosis, which is just a fancy way of saying excessive sweating. At the Falcone Center, we also have the Precision Tx, Thermi and Botox treatments available for underarm sweating but miraDry® is the patient favorite.
Those who are sick of deodorant are good candidates for this procedure. Many people are concerned about the chemicals found in them. Others are just sick of having to reapply it all of the time in order for it to be effective. No matter your reasoning, miraDry® can help eliminate your need to keep wasting money on deodorant.
