Sweating is a normal biological function that helps the body cool off and stay hydrated. However, when you sweat too much, you may suffer from embarrassing and inconvenient complications like odor and clothing stains. You can regain your confidence, wear your favorite clothes and join in any physical activity by undergoing miraDry® treatments to treat your excessive sweating today.
What Is miraDry®?
MiraDry® is a medical procedure that treats excessive sweating, which is also known as hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is a moderately serious medical condition that results from more than just exercise or nervousness. It occurs because of a malfunction in the sweat glands under your arms.
The treatment eliminates excessive sweating by inactivating the underarm sweat glands. This treatment is approved by the FDA and performed on an outpatient basis. It is safe, non-invasive and requires little to no downtime. You should experience immediate improvements in your hyperhidrosis and no longer suffer from the excessive underarm sweating that made carrying out your normal routine difficult or impossible.
How Is miraDry® Performed?
MiraDry® is performed on an outpatient basis right here in our office. It is non-invasive. However, it does require you to undergo mild anesthesia before the procedure can begin.
Our trained provider will first numb your armpits with a mild anesthetic so that you do not feel any sensation during the process. After your armpits are numb, we will mark the areas to be treated.
Next, our specialist will use a handheld device that will emit waves of energy over and into the armpit sweat glands. This energy will inactivate the glands and eliminate their ability to produce sweat.
During this part of the procedure, you may feel the sensation of tugging or suctioning. However, these sensations should not be uncomfortable.
The final stage of the miraDry® treatment involves a cooling period. The energy waves will be hot and cause the glands in your underarms to heat up, making this cooldown period necessary for your own safety and to avoid injury to the skin.
After you are deemed stable enough to return home, you can be discharged from the facility. You should expect immediate results from your treatment. You no longer should suffer from the excessive sweating that stained your clothes, caused noticeable body odor and made you feel embarrassed about going out in public.
