Are you tired of sweating through your clothes every day? A nonsurgical solution to excessive sweating is available. Learn more about the many benefits of noninvasive miraDry® treatments.
Everybody sweats. It’s your body’s natural response to cool off your overheated body and prevent health complications. But if you sweat so much that it interferes with your life, you may have a condition known as hyperhidrosis that needs medical intervention.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive perspiration not related to physical activity or heat. Typically, those with the condition sweat so profusely that their clothes become saturated and sweat actually drips off their bodies.
Primary hyperhidrosis is related to dysfunction in your sweat glands. The glands become overactive for no specific reason. If you have secondary hyperhidrosis, your excessive sweating can be due to underlying medical conditions, such as hormone changes, a thyroid condition, or diabetes.
The excessive sweating of primary or secondary hyperhidrosis can reduce your quality of life, limit your activities, and leave you with low self-esteem and a lack of confidence.
The initial treatment for hyperhidrosis usually includes prescription-strength antiperspirant designed to control your sweating. If that doesn’t work, then medications or Botox® injections may be used to alleviate your symptoms.
These treatment options are effective for some people, but if you still suffer from excessive sweating after using these methods, it may be time to consider miraDry®.
MiraDry is a treatment that uses microwave technology to safely and effectively destroy dysfunctional sweat glands. It’s the only noninvasive treatment approved by the FDA to address excessive sweating.
The in-office treatment is noninvasive, and results are usually achievable with just one or two treatments. Dr. Bopp applies the laser device to your underarm area to eliminate sweat and odor glands. During treatment, you shouldn’t feel any pain, and side effects after treatment are rare.
Within an hour, your sweat glands can be destroyed for good, ending the struggle to stay dry.
The majority of people are born with about 2 million sweat glands all throughout their bodies. The sweat glands in your underarms make up only 2% of those glands.
Even though it may seem like most of your sweat comes from your armpit glands, the reality is you can live a healthy, happy life without them. The other sweat glands in your body will take over after you’ve undergone a miraDry treatment.
MiraDry treatments are highly effective and will last a lifetime, because once your glands are gone, you can expect an immediate reduction in sweating. By destroying your sweat glands, you can eliminate excessive perspiration resulting from both primary and secondary hyperhidrosis.
Excessive sweating can finally end without pain or any downtime. Because treatment is nonsurgical, you won’t have the added worry about visible scars or recovery from incisions and anesthesia.
Of course, the biggest advantage to the end of sweaty episodes is that you can rebuild your self-confidence and get back to the social activities you enjoy. You no long have to worry about ruining your favorite clothes or feeling unclean throughout your day.
