What is excessive sweating?
Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is when your body produces more sweat than it needs to. Sweating is the mechanism your body uses to cool down.
If you have excessive sweating, you have overactive sweat glands that cause you to sweat too much, and at times when you normally wouldn’t sweat. Many people with excessive sweating find it hard to control their condition, negatively affecting how they live their life.
Symptoms of excessive sweating vary and affect everyone differently. People with excessive sweating may experience:
- Sweat pooling under the arms
- Sweat soaking through the back of their shirt
- Beads of sweat on the forehead or cheeks
- Moist hands or feet
How does miraDry reduce excessive sweating?
MiraDry® uses thermal energy to reduce excessive sweating. The heat energy destroys the sweat glands under your arms, stopping all activity, including sweating. miraDry is the only FDA-cleared procedure for permanently reducing excessive sweating.
You have sweat glands all over your body, so decreasing activity in the sweat glands under your arms doesn’t affect your body’s ability to stay cool.
How does miraDry impact underarm hair?
In addition to eliminating excessive underarm sweat, treatment with miraDry® reduces odor and underarm hair growth. It removes up to 60% of armpit hair regardless of skin color or hair color! miraDry® is far superior to standard laser and IPL units that are not effective in removing light body hair and are typically not safe to use on darker skin!
Your provider at OWM Integrative Wellness reviews the details of your excessive sweating treatment at your initial consultation, so you know what to expect.
While you relax in the treatment chair, your provider cleans the skin under your arms with an antiseptic agent and injects a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. They also inject a saline solution under the skin, lifting the sweat glands away from any underlying nerves. We thoroughly anesthetize the underarm area by injecting a lidocaine mixture before the procedure.
The miraDry® sophisticated handpiece uses a vacuum to gently pull the skin to the applicator. A cooling plate provides comfort and prevents heat-related injury during the procedure. Then, they activate the thermal energy. It takes about 90 minutes to treat both underarms.
You can resume your normal activities after your treatment. Most people experience significant improvements in their symptoms after one miraDry session.
