Everyone sweats. It’s a fact of life. However, some people tend to sweat more heavily than others, leading to a frequent fear over sweat stains and body odor. Regular deodorants and clinical strength antiperspirants may be able to offer some marginal relief, but if bothersom underarm sweat and odor persist, you may be a good candidate for miraDry®. miraDry® is an FDA approved non-invasive procedure that provides relief for individuals who suffer from bothersome underarm sweating and are seeking a long-lasting solution.
Side Effects are Minimal
Many wonder if the miraDry® treatment is safe. The short answer is – yes, this treatment is entirely safe for men and women alike. Each miraDry® treatment takes approximately one hour. The handheld device utilizes miraWave™ energy to directly target and treat the sweat and odor glands present in the under arm area. As the miraWave energy penetrates the targeted sweat and odor glands are safely destroyed. The miraWave energy eliminates the unwanted glands, decreasing under arm sweat by an average of 82%, and reducing your daily worry.
One of the best aspects of miraDry® is that side effects are limited and mild. You may experience some localized soreness or swelling after your procedure. However, this will resolve within a few days.
The Treatment is Localized
Of course, sweating is the body’s natural way of keeping cool, so some sweat glands are important to maintain. However, the body has anywhere between two and four million sweat glands, with only 2% residing in the underarms. Rest assured, treating the sweat glands that cause bothersome sweating in the underarms, will not impact the sweat glands on the rest of the body. So, staying cool will not be a problem.
