Summer months are upon us, and it’s easy to get excited about the bright and shining sun. However, if you deal with excessive sweating or have a condition that makes you sweat, you may be dreading the extra heat. Excessively sweating can be embarrassing and uncomfortable and stain your clothes. No one wants to walk around with stains under their arms. That’s why services like MiraDry® exist to get rid of all the excess sweat. Let’s take a closer look at what MiraDry is and how it can help your sweating woes.
What Causes Excessive Sweating?
Sweating is usually a response to heat. However, excessive sweating is caused by other factors as well. Excessive sweating can be caused by anxiety, heart issues, diabetes, thyroid issues, some medications, or even hormonal issues. While the causes of excessive sweating can be extensive, MiraDry can help tackle to symptoms.
What Is MiraDry?
MiraDry is a non-surgical procedure that uses micro-waves to destroy sweat glands that are overactive. This procedure is specifically designed for the underarms. Your provider will numb the armpits before making markings to help assist in the procedure. Then the MiraDry device will deliver micro-waves in certain areas to permanently destroy the sweat glands.
Once the sweat glands are gone, your body will no longer be able to produce sweat in those areas. Afterward, you will likely experience redness, swelling, and possibly some discomfort. However, the recovery process is usually quick and uneventful.
Will I Still Sweat?
You will no longer sweat from your armpits. However, the rest of your sweat glands will still be usable and cool your body. While there is a chance some sweat glands aren’t fully destroyed from the treatment, it’s unlikely you’ll notice their production.
