MIRADRY SWEAT REDUCTION

Reduce Underarm Sweat And Odor

The medical term for excessive sweating is hyperhidrosis. It is estimated that nearly eight million Americans suffer from this condition. miraDry is a unique, non-invasive procedure for treating hyperhidrosis. miraDry makes use of cutting-edge microwave technology to eliminate odor and sweat glands in your armpits. In 2015, miraDry was FDA-cleared to treat axillary hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive underarm sweating.  The treatment provider will use the miraDry handheld device to aim electromagnetic energy at the sweat glands underneath your skin. This device gently heats up the sweat glands under the arms and eliminates them. At the same time, the technique cools and protects the upper layers of skin.

Proven Effectiveness

According to research published in 2013 in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy, miraDry effectively cured axillary osmidrosis (foul-smelling sweat) as well as axillary (underarm) hyperhidrosis.  The clinical evidence obtained from the University of British Columbia in April 2012 indicated that more than 90% of patients experienced a reduction in underarm sweat after the miraDry treatment. There was an 82% average decline in sweat. The satisfaction rating given to the treatment by the patients was at 90%. 

Candidacy

A majority of patients with axillary hyperhidrosis will qualify for the miraDry treatment. People with electronic pacemakers and those who have similar implanted electronic devices are not eligible for this treatment. Some experts suggest that patients who cannot tolerate anesthesia such as epinephrine and lidocaine should avoid this treatment. miraDry is also not for people who rely on supplemental oxygen. 

Procedure  

A non-invasive handheld gadget will be used to transmit electromagnetic energy to the specific spot beneath the skin of your underarms to target the sweat glands in that area. This heat will lead to thermolysis (breaking up by heat) of the sweat glands. The upper layers of the skin will be cooled and safeguarded even as the elimination of sweat glands takes place.   Researchers believe that sweat glands do not grow back once they are removed. Therefore, the outcome with miraDry will be visible immediately while the results will endure. Some people require only one session but the best results are ensured if you undergo two sessions with a spacing of three months. In rare instances, the treatment provider may recommend a third session.  The procedure is performed in our medspa, and it will take about one hour. Local anesthesia, normally lidocaine injections, is administered before the treatment commences. You are unlikely to experience any discomfort during the procedure. The post-treatment downtime is almost non-existent for most patients.  You may be advised to take mild over-the-counter pain medication for a couple of days. The majority of patients return to work and resume regular activities soon after the procedure. You may also go back to exercising in a few days.
