With the weather heating up and summer just around the corner, it’s time to start preparing for the humidity and sweat that comes along with it. Whether you’re someone who sweats a lot no matter the temperature (hyperhidrosis) or only in extreme conditions, wet perspiration can be embarrassing. Sometimes even prescription strength deodorant doesn’t cut it.
We’re here to help you put a stop to excessive sweating with miraDry. These are the top 4 reasons you need to try this transformative treatment.
1. miraDry is safe and effective
The process is quite simple and scientific: miraDry uses thermal energy that targets and eliminates the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once these glands are eliminated, they don’t grow back — making this a permanent procedure and more than just a quick fix.
While your body needs sweat glands to cool itself down, the underarm glands make up only 2% of the body’s 2-4 million glands. Thus eliminating them is perfectly safe and you’ll continue to sweat normally in other places on your body.
Prior to the treatment itself you’ll be given lidocaine injections to decrease any discomfort from the miraDry device — this will be the most painful part of the procedure. After you’re thoroughly numbed the device will be placed on the area for 20 minutes on each side. During this time the glands under your arms are heated to extreme temperatures and destroyed.
Following the treatment expect to feel sore, bruised and swollen after the numbing injections wear off. The post-procedure pain may last up to a week, but once your body has healed the results are worth it.
2. miraDry treatment works quickly
A life-changing procedure, miraDry takes only one hour to perform from start to finish and offers a decrease in underarm sweat immediately. The treatment is clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction, meaning no more sweating through and ruining your clothes and no more embarrassment.
In fact, while some patients require a second treatment to see the full result, 90% of our patients are happy with their results after just one miraDry treatment.
3. miraDry blocks odor and reduces underarm hair growth
In addition to blocking sweat, miraDry also reduces 89% of odor after only the first treatment, and as an added benefit, you will also experience around a 70% reduction in underarm hair growth.
These results are not guaranteed because everyone reacts differently to the miraDry procedure, but they are typical.
4. miraDry is a great deal
