Are you tired of armpit sweat getting in the way of your life? If excessive sweat is making you feel insecure and embarrassed, and you’ve tried antiperspirants without success, you may be anxious to find out how to treat excessive sweat.
What causes excessive sweat?
Excessive, unpredictable sweating also known as hyperhidrosis, most often affects the underarms, hands, and feet. It is typically caused by overactive sweat glands. Excessive sweating in the armpits is known as axillary hyperhidrosis.
How to Treat Excessive Sweat
It is possible to treat excessive sweat with miraDry. miraDry is a safe, clinically proven FDA cleared treatment that uses microwave technology to get rid of sweat and odor glands in the armpits. It is a quick, non-invasive procedure that takes about 1 hour to complete.
How miraDry works
The miraDry handpiece is used to deliver precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the area where the sweat and odor glands are located. The heat that is created kills the sweat glands.
How long do the results of miraDry last?
miraDry eliminates the sweat glands for good, so patients experience a long–lasting reduction in underarm sweat.
Is miraDry painful?
miraDry is performed under local anesthesia, so patients don’t usually experience any pain.
How many treatments will I need?
Some patients see results after just one treatment, but others may need an additional session.
When will I see results with miraDry?
Most patients notice about an 80% reduction in underarm sweat after the first treatment.
