Summertime brings with it the promise of heat. If you would describe yourself as one who sweats, this time of year may bring up a heightened sense of anxiety. Sweating may be something that we do naturally, but it can get a bit excessive. When the glands under the arms seem to work with extraordinary power, sweating takes on a whole new meaning. Why go through another summer having to pack extra shirts or avoid outdoor activities? With miraDry®, excessive underarm sweating can be a thing of the past.
What is miraDry?
People who suffer from hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, have had to rely on medical-grade antiperspirant in years past. At one point, it was discovered that Botox could diminish the amount of sweat produced in overactive parts of the body (seriously, is there anything Botox can’t do?). As innovation goes, medical science has now discovered a way to permanently disable easily-excitable sweat glands under the arms.
The miraDry procedure is now widely used to safely stop excessive sweating in just a few treatments. The way it works is by targeting sweat glands with electromagnetic energy. Similar to laser treatments on unwanted hair, the electromagnetic waves emitted by the miraDry device transfers into sweat glands as heat. This is not uncomfortable because the device has a cooling mechanism that simultaneously chills superficial tissue while sweat glands experience thermolysis. After just one treatment, the destruction of targeted glands is set in motion. Once glands die off, they do not grow back.
Why People Get miraDry Treatment
Underarm sweat can be distracting even under normal circumstances. When sweat causes persistent and noticeable wetness on clothing, a vicious cycle of sweating-nervousness-more sweating often occurs. This cycle is disruptive to professional who want to impress colleagues and clients. It is socially inhibitive when sweating causes so much anxiety that invitations are turned-down.
