miraDry – the new way to stop excess sweat

March 03,2016 | Posted by: Maria Leahy

It’s been a long hot summer and, for most of us, keeping sweating at bay is becoming a daily battle. Thankfully, there’s now a solution for excess sweat: the miraDry hyperhidrosis treatment.

Hyperhidrosis, or excess sweating, is the production of sweat above and beyond normal physical needs, regardless of the temperature. It is a common medical condition affecting many Australians.  While many of us experience extra sweating during stress or anxiety, for some it is a daily experience.

Although sweat is associated with many health benefits, excessive sweating can often be embarrassing, uncomfortable and socially awkward. Whether it is the result of heavy exercise, stress or hot temperatures, profuse sweating can have a negative impact on your everyday life and self-confidence.

miraDry: the sweat solution

Finally there is a solution to stop excess sweat. miraDry is a TGA-approved, non-invasive approach for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis (underarm sweating). A handheld device that works by delivering controlled electromagnetic energy under the skin in the underarm region, miraDry  destroys and eliminates sweat glands. The procedure reduces underarm sweating by up to 82%.

Prior to the procedure, underarm skin will be marked to help guide the treatment. Sweat glands are markedly and reduced and do not regenerate after the procedure. Most patients will notice an obvious reduction in underarm sweating within 1-2 days of the treatment.

Most people will just need one treatment but some may choose to have a touch up 3 months later.  This is the standard protocol to ensure the best possible results.

The procedure typically only takes less than an hour to perform and, although each individual is different, is a well-tolerated treatment due to local anesthesia. There is no downtime post-procedure, however patients are advised to refrain from heavy exercising for 72 hours after treatment.

miraDry is a breakthrough treatment that brings with it a plethora of benefits reflected in the high patient satisfaction rate of 90%. It offers a long-lasting, non-invasive, no downtime solution to excess sweat, without the need for regular repeat treatments.

It’s time to embrace your confidence and say goodbye to the fear of sweating – for good!
