Sweating is a natural bodily function to help regulate your body’s temperature when you have become too hot or overworked. While everybody is going to sweat when placed in the right environment, excessive sweating can still be extremely embarrassing. Nobody wants to lift up their arm to reveal a large pool of sweat. Excessive sweating can even affect people?s lives so greatly that it can lead to depression and anxiety. Avoiding exercise and stressful situations and changing your shirt excessively used to be the only ways to prevent excessive sweating under the arms, but that is no longer the case thanks to miraDry®.
miraDry® is a new, non-invasive procedure that will help you to not get embarrassed by having sweat stains in your armpits. It is able to prevent excessive sweating by eliminating most of the sweat glands under the arm. Since the underarms only account for less than two percent of the total sweat glands in the body, it is completely safe to remove the small number of sweat glands in the armpits. Your body will be able to easily produce sweat out of the rest of your sweat glands to naturally regulate temperature, so there will not be any harmful side effects associated with not sweating under your arms.
Sweat glands are part of the integumentary system and while your body eliminates waste through them, it is only a small fraction of glands we are removing as compared with the thousands located across most of our body. It is also important to mention that there will not be excessive sweating in other areas of the body by destroying these glands.
During a typical miraDry® appointment, a special device will be placed directly on the marked treatment area on your underarms. There will be a slight suction feeling on your skin when the miraDry® device is activated. This suction is helping to bring the sweat glands closer to the surface of the skin. The device will then deliver a specialized heat designed to remove sweat and odor glands. Numbing is used in the area to enhance comfort.
The entire miraDry® procedure should only take approximately two hours to complete. Since this is a non-invasive procedure, you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately. Although it will depend on your body type, we usually recommend a minimum of two treatments to achieve the desired results. Patients with hyperhidrosis may need three.
Since the targeted sweat glands typically do not grow back, you can experience 70 to 90 percent reduction in sweat after just two treatments. The sweat glands are also instantly eliminated during the treatment process, so you will be able to see the amazing results the next time your body starts to sweat. There is simply no reason to deal with excessive sweat in your armpits when it only takes about an hour of your time to get the completely safe and effective miraDry® treatment.
