When it comes to reducing excessive sweat, you have many options from which to choose. Once it has become clear that regular and clinical strength deodorants and antiperspirants simply will not do the trick, you may want to consider something more powerful. Many of our patients wonder about the difference between miraDry® and Botox® for sweat relief. So if you are seeking answers about how each can serve you, here is what you need to know:
miraDry® Permanently Reduces Sweat and Odor for Life
When it comes to a comprehensive method for addressing your excessive sweat and odor, miraDry® does it all. This handheld device sends energy into the treatment area, permanently reducing the unwanted sweat glands in the underarms. Once removed, these glands cannot return, meaning that the results—82% less sweat and body odor–are permanent.
There are minimal side effects to this treatment, such as localized soreness and swelling. However, once these dissipate after a few days, you are left looking and feeling your absolute best, without ever needing to worry about your under arm sweat or smell again.
Botox® Stops Sweat Temporarily
Although it is most commonly associated with reducing lines and wrinkles, Botox® is also effective in keeping underarms dry. In this application, Botox® blocks the signals that tell the brain to produce sweat. That said, Botox® does not help reduce odor, and the treatments must be repeated every three to six months, in order to maintain effectiveness.
