Do you suffer from excessive underarm sweating? You may think you have a reprieve over the winter months, but the truth is, those holiday parties can be a real challenge. Those that suffer from axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating) may even avoid social gatherings because of embarrassing armpit stains. Or perhaps you have had to avoid wearing your favorite shirt because you knew it would expose your excessive sweating problem.
Until recently, hyperhidrosis sufferers were forced to cope with their disruptive condition or undergo ineffective, painful treatments. However, there is now a breakthrough solution called miraDry that is both a highly effective and permanent answer to your problem.
The miraDry System delivers precise and controlled energy to your underarm sweat glands and eliminates them. The good news is that once they are eliminated, sweat glands do not grow back. You can once again feel confident reaching for something on the top shelf or wearing that favorite silk blouse.
Not only are the results long lasting, but the procedure itself is fairly quick. You can expect your arms to be numbed before the treatment and your dermatologist may recommend a mild pain reliever as well. Otherwise, most patients return to normal daily activities immediately and can exercise within several days. Some temporary minor soreness or swelling is normal with this treatment. For an added benefit, you may also experience a reduction in underarm hair and odor following miraDry.
For maximum results, you should plan on at least two treatments, spaced three months apart. This short treatment time is a very small price to pay considering the disruptive condition you’ve had to endure for months or years. Olansky Dermatology Associates is proud to offer the miraDry system to patients who suffer from excessive underarm sweating. Your condition may be just as hard or more difficult to withstand during the winter months, while most people are in sweaters or standing around a fire. Fortunately, there is a solution – and it’s available to you!
