Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that makes many people suffer in silence. The condition can cause both excessive underarm sweating and a lingering odor that can discourage social contact. For hyperhidrosis patients, it can be a low quality of life. miraDry® is one permanent treatment option that can transform symptoms of excessive sweating and achieve relief without downtime or discomfort. Here’s what to know about miraDry and how it can help.
How Does miraDry Work?
miraDry works by administering microwaves to the sweat glands with a specialized handpiece. This process generates gentle heat which damages the sweat glands, causing them to gradually stop functioning. The result is a noticeable reduction in underarm sweat and odor – and the whole process is safe, effective, and non-surgical.
Is miraDry Safe?
It’s understandable to be concerned about your body’s ability to sweat after miraDry – after all, sweating is an important function! However, there are millions of sweat glands all over your body, and the sweat glands under your arms make up a small fraction of your body’s total sweat glands. You’ll see reduced sweating under your arms but still retain your ability to sweat normally everywhere else. In fact, patients report up to 80% reduction in underarm sweat with just a single treatment!
Is miraDry Right For You?
Many people with hyperhidrosis find the condition frustrating. They may shy away from talking about it with others or even with their doctor. This makes it a very underreported condition throughout the country. With miraDry, you can find life-changing results with just a single treatment, making it an effective option for nearly any patient struggling with excessive sweating. The best part is, it’s quick, effective, and produces long-lasting results.
