Although it’s rarely talked about, hyperhidrosis is a common condition among men and women. It refers to excessive sweating that is not related to exercise or heat. Hyperhidrosis causes your clothes to get damp, and impacts your quality of life. In addition to interfering with your everyday existence, this condition can take a toll on your confidence and deter you from social activities and even relationships.
The good news is there’s a safe, convenient treatment for hyperhidrosis. Here at Krauss Dermatology, we offer miraDry to help patients resolve excessive sweating in the armpit area and improve their quality of life. Let’s dive deeper into what miraDry is and how it works.
What is miraDry?
Through cutting-edge microwave technology, miraDry targets and damages the sweat glands under your arms. Before the treatment, you can expect one of our dermatologists to numb the area with a local anesthesia to alleviate any discomfort.
Then, they’ll use the patented miraDry device to deliver controlled energy to the area under your arms. The device will eliminate your sweat glands and prevent them from returning. While you may notice some swelling and bruising a few days after treatment, miraDry recuperation requires minimal downtime. You’ll be able to return to work and your daily activities within days.
The most noteworthy benefit of miraDry is that it’s a permanent solution to hyperhidrosis. It can give you the peace of mind of knowing you won’t sweat excessively from your underarms. With miraDry, you won’t have to worry about reapplying deodorant or antiperspirants and can go about your life in confidence.
Believe it or not, one miraDry procedure can put an end to your excessive sweating for good. Most patients enjoy 82% reduction in sweating and 89% decrease in odor in only one treatment. A second procedure is desired by about one-third of patients to improve their results from good to amazing. A very small percentage of patients do not improve with the procedure.
