For anyone who deals with excessive sweating, it’s something that you may not care to admit. A hush-hush topic and major cause of stress and concern, you likely spend more time sweating and worrying if people are, in fact, seeing you perspire excessively.

Hyperhidrosis—AKA excess sweating—is a medical condition that affects 2-3% of Americans today. For those living with hyperhidrosis, the most commonly affected areas are the underarms, hands, palms, and even the soles of a person’s feet.

Thankfully we live in the modern-day and age where there are proven treatment options available to those who want to put an end to their excessive sweating once and for all. If you’re a person living with hyperhidrosis, then the FDA-approved MiraDry technique can be the perfect solution for you to treat excessive underarm sweat—for good!

What causes hyperhidrosis?

Although it’s debatable for what is the exact cause of hyperhidrosis, many believe that it comes as a result of genetics. For most, it begins during adolescence, but there are a few medical conditions/life situations that can trigger excessive sweating, such as anxiety, stress, excessive alcohol consumption, and diabetes. Many people who live with hyperhidrosis are embarrassed and ashamed, and the condition can greatly affect their everyday life and lower their self-confidence.

What is MiraDry?

First cleared by the FDA in 2011, this treatment option for hyperhidrosis can work wonders. The first of its kind to treat excessive armpit sweat, the MiraDry device has the unique capability to halt unwanted underarm sweat and hair growth while also eliminating odor-producing glands.

How does the MiraDry procedure work?

This non-invasive method to treat excessive underarm sweat is performed using a handheld device that delivers “precisely controlled electromagnetic energy beneath the underarm skin to the specific area where sweat glands are located, resulting in thermolysis (decomposition by heat) of the sweat glands.”

Additionally, while the sweat glands are eliminated, the top layers of skin are simultaneously cooled and protected throughout the process. Almost instantly, results will be seen as the sweat glands are immediately killed off.

While there are other treatment options available on the market, none of them offer a permanent solution to excessive underarm sweat the way that MiraDry can. This selling point speaks for itself if you’re tired of stressing over your underarm hyperhidrosis.

Are my MiraDry results really permanent?

The results of the MiraDry procedure are immediate, and they are also long-lasting. Most patients achieve results in a single treatment, but in some cases, up to three treatments must be performed to achieve lasting and desired results. Once your treatments are completed the result is permanent.
