We’re officially in the throws of summer and the heat is here! For those of you who are dealing with excessive underarm sweat, we know it can be a plaguing time of year, but we’ve also got a permanent solution to help you get through it. Miradry is the only FDA approved procedure to help eliminate sweat AND smell glands with an easy in-office appointment! By eliminating the sweat and odor glands, you can feel confident that your underarms will remain dry in any situation. We know that this may seem too good to be true, so here are some frequently asked questions about miraDry and why we love it!
While there are other options to treat excessive sweat, like drysol deodorant and Botox injections, Miradry is the only minimally invasive permanent solution. We love that our patients see lasting results immediately after the treatment.
- Don’t I need sweat glands? Not in your armpits! You are born with approximately 2 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. After your miraDry ® treatment you will experience the many benefits of dry underarms, and you will continue to perspire normally elsewhere.
- How does it work? The miraDry system uses proprietary miraWave energy that targets and destroys sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are destroyed they do not grow back so that means once they are gone, they are gone for good.
- Is it safe? Yes, miraDry has been used in over 55,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record.
- Is there downtime? Depending on what your typical day is like, downtime can be minimal. Most patients return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately, while exercise and vigorous activity is typically resumed within several days. You may experience discomfort in your armpits up to a week and will experience swelling and tenderness post treatment, but we promise, its worth it!
If you think this may be the procedure for you, don’t sweat it, feel free to contact us for a complimentary consult and we’ll be happy to discuss the treatment in-depth with you. Say goodbye to your sweat today and schedule your appointment with us!
