Every once in a while a technology is developed that signals a real breakthrough. miraDry is trailblazing the market as the non-invasive and no-downtime solution to underarm sweating.
While many of us look forward to summer, it can be tinged with anxiety for others. With increased temperatures comes increased sweating – sometimes to the point where it becomes socially awkward.
Sweat is the body’s way of regulating temperature and has many health benefits.
Sweating can be a response to extra heat from physical exercise, over-stimulated nerves due to stress, consuming hot food or drink, or from high air temperatures. Generally, the amount you perspire is determined by the number of sweat glands you have.
However, many people suffer from excessive perspiration, also called hyperhidrosis, which can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. For some, profuse sweating can negatively impact on their everyday life to affect their emotional wellbeing and self-esteem.
Thankfully, there’s now a solution to excessive perspiration.
miraDry is a non-invasive, in-clinic treatment that uses precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to eliminate underarm sweat glands. These destroyed sweat glands are not believed to grow back after treatment, so results are long lasting – and immediate.
During treatment, the handheld device is positioned over the sweat glands in the axilla (underarm). The controlled microwave energy then destroys the targeted sweat glands.
In one or two treatments, the device can destroy 22,000-30,000 underarm sweat glands, reducing sweat volume by an average of 82 percent.
“Many patients have reported that the results are life-changing,” says Dr Mary Dingley. “I’ve personally had the procedure, so I can provide first-hand knowledge of its effects.”
Whether you sweat excessively (hyperhidrosis), suffer from body odour (bromhidrosis), dislike the yellow stains on white clothes or white marks on black clothes, have sensitive skin that doesn’t tolerate deodorants or just don’t like to have the inconvenience of underarm sweat, miraDry is proving an effective sweat-busting solution.
With miraDry you can feel more confident during the hot summer months and say goodbye to embarrassing sweat patches – for good!
