MiraDry treatment provides a safe and lasting solution for excessive underarm sweat, an embarrassing condition called hyperhidrosis. The FDA cleared this effective treatment after reviewing a robust, randomized, and blinded clinical study of 120 patients at seven clinics across the U.S. Other studies support the safety and success of treatment, showing 90 percent efficacy and 90 percent patient satisfaction.
Physicians perform miraDry in the comfort of their office. The procedure takes about one hour from start to finish. Precisely controlled and targeted electromagnetic energy disables the sweat glands in the armpits. Results are permanent, because sweat glands cannot regenerate. Treatment is non-invasive with little to no downtime, patients can return to normal activities after treatment. People diagnosed with hyperhidrosis may require two treatments to get best results. Those who dislike sweating for cosmetic reasons may only need one treatment.
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes more underarm sweat than what is needed to cool the body. Over 20 percent of the American public suffers from excessive sweating. This embarrassing condition frequently causes work anxiety, frustration in relationships, and avoidance of more physical activities.
Other treatment options exist but they are temporary. For example, Botox injections can temporarily relieve excessive sweating. However, miraDry treatment eliminates underarm sweat glands safely and non-invasively.
A patient in a local practice remarked, “I recently had the miraDry procedure done, and can honestly say it has changed my life. I have dealt with pit stains since I was 13 years old.” This comment shows the impact of hyperhidrosis, and highlights the value of the miraDry procedure.
One extra bonus of this innovative treatment is that up to 70 percent of all armpit hair is permanently removed with one treatment. This happy finding includes hair of all colors. MiraDry treatment gives you a successful two-in-one option for smooth and dry underarms.
