Sweating is your body’s natural mechanism for cooling you off. While it is appropriate to be sweaty after a long run or basketball game, if you find that your underarms are soaked throughout the day or with minimal activity, you may have a condition known as hyperhidrosis or excessive underarm sweating. While your over-perspiration isn’t necessarily going to harm your health, it can be a significant threat to your self-confidence and quality of life. Besides the abundance of visible moisture, there is often an unmistakable odor that comes along with it. In fact, many people with hyperhidrosis avoid wearing certain shirts and may even dodge social gatherings due to their condition.
If you suffer from excessive underarm sweating, the summer heat can be a nightmare. You probably already know that even the strongest deodorants don’t combat your issue. However, there is another treatment that does work. Many dermatologists are now offering a revolutionary treatment for hyperhidrosis, called miraDry.
What is miraDry?
MiraDry is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment to permanently eliminate underarm sweat and odor. MiraDry uses targeted laser energy to destroy the glands that cause axillary hyperhidrosis. Patients can gain an 86% reduction in their underarm sweat with this simple, in-office procedure.
MiraDry offers the following value:
- Eliminates both sweat and odor
- Minimal pain with the use of local numbing cream
- Quick procedure
- Immediate solution
- Permanent results
