How can I treat my hyperhidrosis?

How can I treat my hyperhidrosis?

Lets start with what hyperhidrosis technically is defined as: The condition characterized by abnormally increased sweating, in excess of that required for regulation of body temperature. It is associated with a significant quality of life burden from a psychological, emotional, and social perspective. Hyperhidrosis can either be generalized, or localized to specific parts of the body. Hands, feet, armpits, groin, and the facial area are among the most active regions of perspiration due to the high number of sweat glands in these particular areas.  1 in 5 Americans say they sweat excessively.

How can I treat hyperhidrosis?  There are a number of treatment options for excess sweating ranging from special deodorants you can wear to Botox injections.  While these are usually effective treatments, they are all temporary. Miradry is the only FDA-approved non-surgical permanent treatment option for excess sweating in the axillae.

MiraDry works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, heating and subsequently eliminating the underarm sweat glands and smell.  In just 1 short treatment, you can have significant improvement.  The miraDry system eliminates the underarm sweat glands, and the sweat glands don’t grow back after treatment.  This results in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.  In a clinical study, patients experienced an average of 82% reduction in underarm sweat.  You should notice a reduction in sweat immediately after your first treatment, and can expect to be tender and swollen for about a week post procedure.

If you think you may be a candidate, contact our office today and we would be happy to setup a consultation to discuss the procedure in more detail. 910-256-4350

 

 

Don’t Sweat the Holidays, try miraDry!

It’s about that time where some start to stress the holidays and all that they entail, but WDC has the sweat free solution for the season. miraDry ® is our permanent sweat and odor reduction device for the underarm area, exclusively at WDC.

miraDry ® is the only noninvasive, FDA-cleared treatment that will free you from the bothersome problems of underarm sweat. 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 ® to give you a better understanding of the treatment.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Is it safe? Yes, miraDry has been used in over 55,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record.
  4. Is there downtime? Depending on what your typical day is like, downtime can be minimal to none. Most patients return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise and vigorous activity is typically resumed within several days. You may experience discomfort in your armpits up to a week.

MiraDry Me: The permanent sweat reduction treatment

If you’re bothered by your sweat, tired of ruining nice shirts, or just don’t want to deal with antiperspirants, then MiraDry is the perfect lasting solution for your needs! MiraDry is the first and only non-invasive treatment to permanently destroy underarm sweat and odor glands. That’s right…this non-invasive procedure is permanent.

The MiraDry system works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, heating and subsequently eliminating the underarm sweat glands. These glands are permanently destroyed and do not grow back, nor does your body compensate by sweating more in other places.  The treatment is a one-time treatment, unless there is a diagnosis of hyperhydrosis from a doctor, it occasionally may require one addition treatment.

One of our favorite things about MiraDry is not only the sweat elimination, but the destruction of the odor glands as well. You can eliminate the use of antiperspirant deodorant and not have to worry about smelling.   Another perk of MiraDry is that is does eliminate some of the underarm hair as well.  One treatment that is focused on sweat reduction, but does a number of other things as well!  What’s not to love?

1 in 5 American’s say that they sweat excessively, so if you’re interested in learning more about a sweat free life, contact our office for additional information or a free consultation!

Patient Review: Miradry

As we have mentioned in the past, our miraDry ® system has come out with a new protocol for treatment.  Instead of two treatments separated by 3 months, we can now stop sweat in just one-single treatment!  The miraDry ® system uses energy that targets and destroys the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are destroyed they do not grow back—so that means your treatment is permanent and lasts forever.  We are focused on our patient satisfaction, so here’s a review from a real patient on her experience with miraDry ®.

“My experience with Miradry was extremely exceptional!!! I was very nervous going into the procedure thinking that the pain would be too much to handle and it was the complete opposite. I was in and out of the office within an hour and a half and in just a couple days back to the gym.  Although my work outs were limited due to range of motion in my under arm area, Miradry is something you can have done and continue your daily routine! At about a month’s time the range of motion has completely come back and I am able to raise my arms as normal! I highly recommend this to all my friends and family especially the ones with busy life styles who do not have the time to deal with under arm sweat and the damaging stains it can leave to your clothing!” _Katherine Y.

miraDry ® is a procedure that is suitable for anyone dealing with excessive underarm sweat, smell, or stained clothing.   If you’re interested in learning more on miraDry ®, contact our office today to setup a complimentary consult!

Miradry Educational Event

The days are slowly getting warmer which is nice, but for some presents a frustrating and sometimes embarrassing problem. For those of you dealing with excessive underarm sweat now is the time to take action! The MiraDry treatment is safe, quick, non-invasive and performed in our office. MiraDry works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the underarm sweat glands. After just 2 treatments, the result is a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.

Some of the results mentioned included significantly less sweating immediately after the first treatment, no need for deodorant, and the ability to wear colorful shirts.

Why do I sweat?  Our bodies produce sweat to help us cool down when we’re overheated.  Some people have overactive sweat glands, meaning they frequently turn on when they should be at rest, and they produce much more sweat than what’s needed to cool the body. Some people’s sweat glands can produce four or five times more sweat than normal.

How do I know if it’s right for me?  That’s easy…if you answer yes to any of the following, then the MiraDry treatment may be what you’re looking for.

  • Does your underarm sweat make you feel embarrassed?
  • Does underarm sweat interfere with your daily activities?
  • Do you frequently apply antiperspirant?
  • Do you worry someone will notice your sweat stains?
  • Do you change your clothes more than once a day due to underarm sweat?
  • Do you wear fabrics, colors and styles of clothes that do not show sweat easily?
  • Are you frustrated over constantly ruining clothes?
