Do you feel like your armpits sweat more than others? Do your sweat stains or odors keep you from enjoying certain activities? You are not alone. An estimated 2%-3% of Americans suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms, which is medically termed axillary hyperhidrosis. Don’t worry – there’s a solution, and it is a permanent one!
As an FDA-approved treatment, miraDry is used to reduce the excessive underarm sweat caused by hyperhidrosis. This advanced technology uses electromagnetic energy to neutralize the sweat and odor glands that exist beneath the surface of the skin. It is a quick and painless treatment with instant results!
When your sweat is excessive, you likely deal with both visible sweat as well as undeniable odor coming from your armpits. This can lead to some very significant social setbacks. Many sufferers feel like they are held captive by their hyperhidrosis condition, avoiding dancing at parties, being afraid to raise your hand in class or avoiding certain clothing.
Fortunately, miraDry technology is able to eliminate sweat glands as well as the odor glands in the armpit. Here are some top reasons to consider miraDry at Olanksy Dermatology:
No More Pit Stains
Not only can you feel sticky and stinky when your armpits produce excessive sweat, but your condition can also be very noticeable to others as the appearance of dark circled stains appear on your clothing under your arms. Hyperhidrosis sufferers may have sweat stains, deodorant stains or both. This can be embarrassing as well as drive up your dry-cleaning bills.
No More Restricted Wardrobe
If you have excessive underarm sweat, you probably know the materials and colors that are off limits when it comes to your shirts. Many avoid silk and colors that will show sweat stains more easily. This can be especially devastating for women who enjoy picking out clothes and showing off their personal style. It can also be very difficult to avoid if you are a man that must wear a suit for work.
No More Hiding or Holding Back
Your social life can really take a hit if you suffer from hyperhidrosis. You may be too embarrassed to dance (raising your arms or getting too close to someone), or you can even feel self-conscious about meeting someone new and shaking their hand or giving them a hug. miraDry can mean you no longer have to hide from social situations.
No More Deodorant Concerns
It is common for patients who have excessive underarm sweat to have a hard time finding a deodorant that works. This can be frustrating and expensive. In addition, you may be concerned about the toxins and chemicals you are applying to your skin every day (or multiple times a day) in an effort to stifle your sweat and odor. With miraDry, you can go ‘au naturale’ or use a milder, more toxin-free variety of deodorant.
