For some, underarm sweat is just a minor annoyance that can easily be rectified by applying deodorant at the beginning of the day, but for others, excessive sweating in everyday situations requires more advanced care in order to be corrected. While this is nothing to be ashamed of, many sufferers understandably want a way to treat this problem, and MiraDry, the first and only FDA approved treatment for permanently eliminating sweat and odor glands, is here to help.
MiraDry is a noninvasive electromagnetic energy treatment designed to pull sweat and odor glands close to the surface of the skin, where they can then be destroyed with patented “MiraWaves.” Before the treatment is applied, the site of your most bothersome sweat glands is marked with a special marking pad, and the area is numbed. Once numb, the handpiece is placed on the site and the treatment begins. A slight tugging can be often be felt when the glands are pulled close to the skin, but the treatment itself is completely pain-free. Once the glands are close enough to the skin’s surface, they are then destroyed by MiraWaves, and an immediate cooling sensation is added to the skin to soothe and protect it. One treatment takes around one hour, and sweat reduction can be noticed immediately.
