Has excessive underarm sweating caused you to feel embarrassed more than once? If so, you’re not alone. Millions of people suffer from what is technically called hyperhidrosis, or excessive underarm sweating. It’s a difficult condition to deal with in today’s image-conscious society.
Thankfully, Rockstar Wellness Clinic in Hot Springs has a solution. MiraDry is a treatment that can eliminate the sweat and odor that comes from hyperhidrosis. It was FDA-approved in 2011 and has helped thousands of people combat the condition.
What Is MiraDry?
MiraDry is an FDA-approved treatment that tackles excessive underarm sweating using a non-invasive technology. A handheld device is used to send electromagnetic energy underneath the skin of the armpit. The energy produces heat that eliminates the sweat glands.
The MiraDry treatment is a quick, hour-long process in a physician’s office. There is no down time and you’ll be back at work and your normal activities right away. MiraDry has a 90% satisfaction rate with patients who have been treated.
Does MiraDry Keep You from Sweating in Other Areas of the Body?
MiraDry is a treatment for excessive underarm sweating. It does not eliminate sweating completely on the body, but rather focuses on underarm sweat glands that produce sweat and odor.
Eliminating sweat glands in the armpits may leave you wondering if the procedure affects your body’s ability to regulate temperature. The answer is no. The sweat glands located in the armpits have less than 2% of the entire body’s sweat glands, therefore the elimination of these glands have no effect on the body’s ability to thermoregulate.
When Will I See Results?
MiraDry is a permanent solution for excessive underarm sweat and odor, making it a great option without the need for follow-up treatments in most cases.
Patients will see results, that is less armpit sweating, almost immediately after one treatment. Severe cases may require two treatments.
The results are permanent, so once the sweat glands are gone, the sweating will cease to exist.
Is MiraDry Right for Me?
MiraDry may be a great option for you if you suffer from excessive underarm sweating that has not been relieved by “clinical strength” antiperspirants.
