Everybody sweats. Sweating is just a natural part of life. We sweat when we exercise, we sweat when it is hot out, we sweat when we are nervous and we sweat when we exert ourselves in some way. A little bit of sweat can be a good thing. Unfortunately, some people have the problem of excessive sweat. They sweat regardless of what they are doing. They sweat so much that their clothing is constantly drenched. It affects their confidence, and it affects the way that other people view them. miraDry® is an FDA-approved treatment that has been shown to help individuals who are dealing with overactive sweat glands underneath their arms. This procedure allows a person to completely eliminate the sweat and odor glands underneath their arms, giving them the confidence that they need.
Many people wonder if they need the sweat glands under their arms. No, not necessarily. Humans are born with around two million sweat glands all over their body. The sweat glands underneath your arms only account for around two percent of your body’s total sweat glands. After the miraDry® treatment, you will not have to worry about excessively sweaty armpits. However, you are going to sweat normally everywhere else. So, your body’s ability to perspire, to remove toxins via perspiration and to keep you cool via perspiration will not be hampered.
Before the treatment even starts, your underarms are going to be numbed. As such, you’re not going to feel much of anything during the treatment. The miraDry® system uses a proprietary form of energy that targets and removes the sweat glands under your arms. Once these glands are safely destroyed, your body does not produce them again. When they’re gone, they’re gone for good, and so is your problem with excessive underarm sweating.
You are going to notice immediate results. Since the sweat glands have been destroyed, your armpits are not going to sweat at all, or at least not nearly as much. The results should be permanent. The amount of sweat reduction that you achieve will depend on a variety of factors.
Excessive sweating can be embarrassing, and it can make you feel self-conscious. With miraDry® treatments at Ozark Regional Vein Center, excessive sweating will become a thing of the past. Our office is conveniently located in Rogers. Contact us today to schedule a consultation for miraDry®!
