At Skin Wellness Center, we’re pleased to offer a new solution miraDry for anyone who is bothered by underarm sweat and/ or has axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating in the underarms) Excessive sweating can be embarrassing.
Now you can wear those blouses, tops, and shirts without fear of embarrassing underarm stains and order! Did we mention that an added benefit of this procedure is a permanent reduction in underarm hair growth! (50-75%)
In the Florida heat, a little bit of sweat is inevitable, but if you’ve tried everything on the market from medical strength deodorant to Botox, it may be time to take a more effective and permanent approach.
This innovative solution is the first and only non-surgical treatment that is FDA-cleared to permanently reduce underarm sweat and odor, so you no longer have to sweat it. In as little as one session lasting about an hour, you’ll be able to reduce your underarm sweat and odor!
However, the best part of miraDry? You can expect immediate and lasting results. The miraDry treatment is clinically proven to eliminate the sweat and odor glands for good. On average patient’s experience 82% sweat reduction, and 89% odor reduction. The treatment uses thermal energy (heat) to eliminate the sweat and odor glands. If you have any concerns about how this treatment would impact your overall sweat production, keep in mind that your body has 2-4 million sweat glands and only about 2% are found in your underarms. So don’t worry, in fact, you’ll continue to sweat regularly from other parts of your body.
Prior to the procedure, a local anesthetic is administered to the underarms for pain management. Don’t worry though — most patients only experience mild discomfort.
During treatment, the miraDry hand piece will be placed under your arms. You may feel a slight suctioning and tingling, but this is perfectly normal. The device heats the glands until they are destroyed, all the while providing a cooling sensation to the area to minimize your discomfort.
The procedure itself only takes about an hour, and patients are cleared to return to work and regular activity immediately. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to rest for a few days before returning to exercise.
miraDry’s side effects are temporary and mild. Some patients may experience soreness, bruising, and swelling in the treated area for the first couple of weeks following the treatment, and some patients may experience an altered sensation in the skin immediately after treatment. Both of these effects are temporary.
