Excessive sweating and body odor can make people feel self-conscious and hold them back in their social and professional interactions. Instead of just applying antiperspirant in the morning, people with hyperhidrosis spend all day trying to disguise or control their excessive sweat. They can find relief with miraDry, the only treatment to put a stop to hyperhidrosis.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
Excessive sweating is called hyperhidrosis, and it can affect almost anyone. People with this condition can sweat up to four times more than normal, causing constant problems with wetness and odor. The condition often has a genetic cause and, while not physically harmful, can be socially and emotionally difficult to cope with. Hyperhidrosis most commonly affects the soles, palms, and armpits.
How Does miraDry Work?
As the only FDA-cleared treatment to significantly improve hyperhidrosis of the underarm in one treatment, miraDry treats the armpit area by targeting the sweat glands. The area will be numbed by the physician before treatment, so you feel no discomfort. The handheld device applies energy to the skin that targets and deactivates the sweat glands. The process takes about an hour. MiraDry reduces sweat by an average of 82% and odor by an average of 89% with just a single treatment. And results last forever.
One great reason to use miraDry to treat your hyperhidrosis is that it lasts permanently. The rest of the sweat glands in your body will continue to function normally to cool you when necessary, but almost all armpit sweating will stop. The energy damages the treated sweat glands enough that most never produce sweat again. The only treatment to permanently treat hyperhidrosis, miraDry can put a stop to excessive sweating and make sure you never have to think about it again.
