Miradry For Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)

Conveniently located in Bala Cynwyd, PA, The Falcone Center serves patients from Philadelphia, Maple Shade, New Jersey, and surrounding areas in Pennsylvania. With a focus on helping you look and feel better on the inside and outside, we concentrate on practicing medicine that is cosmetic, functional, and integrative, and proudly offer miraDry® as a long-lasting solution to hyperhidrosis, or excessive underarm sweat and odor.

Stressing Over Sweat?

You know the feeling. You’re in a meeting or on a date and you feel yourself begin to sweat.

Maybe it’s excitement, or just being too warm, but you can feel the sweat in your underarm area begin to build. Now you’re afraid to lift your arms or take off your jacket, and the whole thing begins to feel awkward. And the worst part? This isn’t the first time this has happened to you. In fact, this happens all too often on dates, in social gatherings, at work: everywhere.

Sweating is perfectly natural, but sometimes it can be excessive. Some people just sweat much more than others. No doubt you’ve been in a situation where you were sweating profusely while someone with you wasn’t sweating at all.

You know the heartbreak of throwing out clothes you love because they have been ruined by sweat stains and odor issues.

When people see large wet spots from sweat they may get the impression that you are overly nervous, which is the opposite of what you are trying to convey in a professional or social setting.

And if you’re a heavy sweater or have embarrassing odor, you have probably found that even the most extra strength antiperspirants don’t solve the problem for you.

You are not alone. There are 37 million people in the United States who suffer from excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). Fortunately, miraDry offers a permanent solution for you to feel clean and dry.

This safe, non-invasive treatment reduces the sweat glands and odor glands in your armpits. It has saved thousands of patients from the embarrassment caused by excessive sweating and odor.

What Is miraDry®?

miraDry is a revolutionary, FDA-cleared procedure to help patients permanently reduce underarm sweating and the embarrassing problems associated with it.

This safe, non-invasive and non-surgical procedure uses electromagnetic energy to precisely target sweat glands in the underarm area and eliminate them. The heat from miraDry treatment permanently shuts down these sweat glands for long-term results in only one or two treatments.

The treatment takes about an hour and the results are almost immediate. You may feel mild tenderness or swelling afterward for a few days. However, side effects are minimal and you can resume your daily activities soon after the procedure.

An added benefit for most people is a reduction of hair in the treated area.

Tackle the root of your problem, and live comfortably in a way you may have never known. Free to lift your arms without fear of embarrassment.

But Don’t I Need To Sweat?

Of course! But not from your underarms. You are born with approximately 2-4 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. After your miraDry treatment you will experience the many benefits of dry underarms, and you will continue to perspire normally elsewhere.

Benefits Of miraDry

While results vary slightly from patient to patient, common results following a full miraDry® treatment include:

  • Permanently reducing the underarm sweat and odor glands
  • Results in as little as one treatment
  • Avoid antiperspirants that often contain harmful toxins like aluminum.
  • Save time and hassle changing clothes and bringing extra back-up change of clothing everywhere you go.
  • Save time replacing clothes that have been ruined by sweat stains.
  • Non-Surgical and requires little to no downtime or change in your daily routine
  • Little to no discomfort during the miraDry treatment process
  • The ability to go straight from the gym to work or other engagements without showering and changing
  • No more chalky white deodorant stains
  • Stay clean, confident, and carefree forever

What Is The Procedure For Miradry®?

The procedure for miraDry® usually lasts only about an hour. The customized area for treatment will be marked. That area is then numbed with local anesthesia. The handpiece is placed on the underarm following the customized treatment marks. miraDry® is activated, vacuum suction from the handpiece stabilizes the skin and brings the sweat glands closer for treatment, protecting deeper tissue. Energy is delivered non-surgically through the skin and tissue of the underarm. The energy penetrates to the region where the sweat glands are located. At the same time, a cooling system protects the skin and keeps the energy at the sweat glands. The glands are heated and then permanently reduced. Since sweat glands don’t grow back, results are immediate and very long-lasting.

When Will I See Results?

Results are almost immediate. You will notice within a few days that you are sweating much less, or not at all, in situations where you would have previously sweated out your shirt.

How Much is Sweat Costing You?

Not only can miraDry treatment make your life more enjoyable, but it may save you quite a bit of money over time as well. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What does your water bill look like with excessive or multiple showers (more than one per day)?
  • How much antiperspirant do you go through each week?
  • What does your dry cleaning bill look like after dropping off your sweat-soaked shirts?
  • How much money do you spend replacing clothing that has been ruined by sweat stains?
  • Are you paying for doctor visits and prescriptions that are related to sweating?
  • Have you spent money on other forms of treatment that require routine maintenance visits, such as Botox injections?

While it is relatively easy to determine the monetary cost of excessive sweat, there are also intangible costs to consider as well:

  • How much time do you devote to extra showers each day?
  • How much time do you spend changing from shirt to shirt and packing extra shirts?
  • How much of your time is wasted shopping for replacement clothing?
  • Are you constantly anxious or depressed over your appearance?
  • Do you dread or avoid a lot of social engagements, such as dates or nights out with friends, because you’re too embarrassed or worried about your sweat stains?
  • Has nervous perspiration negatively impacted your professional opportunities?

In short, sweating is costing you time, money, and positive life experiences.

Calculate these financial and emotional costs and compare them to the cost of a single miraDry treatment. If you’re like most people who suffer from excessive sweating, the answer is obvious.

As for your emotional well-being, miraDry provides long-lasting relief. Just ask yourself how your life would change for the better if you no longer had to worry about excessive sweating.

Preparing For miraDry

You will likely be asked to shave your underarms 4 days prior to your miraDry® treatment day. You should also show up to your appointment free of deodorant or any antiperspirants. On the treatment day, wear a sleeveless shirt or one with loose armholes. You may be given a topical numbing cream or gel just beforehand, to keep you as comfortable as possible during your procedure. Any other directions that might pertain to your unique needs will be discussed in full well before your scheduled treatment appointment. Plan to spend approximately 1-2 hours for the complete treatment process.

Miradry® Aftercare

Most patients can return to their normal lives soon after receiving miraDry® treatment. It is normal to experience a small amount of swelling, tenderness or soreness for a short time, but it is generally mild and easily treated with ice and over-the-counter pain medications. Some patients may benefit from more than one treatment or multiple treatments over the years to maintain optimal results. Your personal care and treatment plan will all be planned out in advance as you consult with Dr. Falcone and determine the best course of events for your personal needs, goals, and lifestyle.
Post-treatment recommendations:

  • Ice underarms for the next 24 to 48 hours(20 min on/ 20 min off)
  • Keep treated area clean
  • Refrain from any vigorous activity for a few days
