Underarm Sweating and Odor is part of life, but for some people, it causes embarrassment and discomfort. If you are someone who deals with excessive underarm sweating or underarm odor or is just ready to stop wasting money on ineffective deodorant, consider miraDry®. It is one of the only non-surgical and non-invasive treatments for this issue that has been cleared by the FDA. So effective, this revolutionary treatment can dramatically reduce sweating after just one appointment.
How Does miraDry® Work?
miraDry® is so effective because it eliminates sweat glands under your arms. When you come in for treatment, we perform a starch-iodine test to precisely determine your exact sweat areas. The area is then thoroughly numbed. We then precisely mark where the treatment should be administered. The handheld miraDry® device is then moved over the area, effectively destroying the sweat glands. The treatment can also result in a loss of underarm hair, which some patients view as a positive. It is like getting laser hair removal and underarm sweat removal in the same treatment! Thermal energy is used to accomplish this by heating the glands to the point that they can no longer survive.
If you are concerned about what happens if your body can no longer sweat under your arms, fear not. While it is true that you need to sweat to cool off, there are actually millions of sweat glands on your body. Of those, only 2% are actually located under your arms, so removing these is completely safe.
The Benefits of miraDry®
There are many reasons to give this treatment serious consideration. Some of the benefits of miraDry® include:
- It is safe with minimal discomfort
- Surrounding tissue is protected and unaffected
- Treatments are quick and easy
- There is little to no downtime after treatment. We recommend that you don’t exercise for 3 days and ice the treatment area on and off for the first 24-48 hours. This treatment is well tolerated.
- Many people see dramatic improvement after just one treatment.
- It is non-surgical and non-invasive. You can drive yourself home after the procedure.
In clinical trials, participants saw an average of 89% reduction in odor and an 82% reduction in sweat after two treatments. These results are immediate and can last a lifetime.
Excessive sweat, more technically known as hyperhidrosis, can bring with it many embarrassing issues. People end up dealing with deodorant stains, sweat marks, and unpleasant odors. If you are sick of deodorants, many of which have questionable chemicals and wear off way too soon, miraDry® may be the solution you have been waiting for. It can save you time, money, and unnecessary stress!
