What Can I Do About Excessive Sweating?

miraDry Are your underarms sweaty no matter what you do? You’ve tried all the deodorants, antiperspirants, and sweat-resistant shirts, but you still have those stains you desperately want to hide. The FDA-approved treatment miraDry® may be right for you.

Causes of Excessive Underarm Sweating

There are several reasons why someone may sweat more than usual:

  • Genetic factors
  • Certain endocrine or neurologic disorders
  • Some prescription medications

Exposure to high temperatures and certain emotions can also trigger excessive sweating in some people. There is not always a definitive cause for hyperhidrosis — it often occurs in perfectly healthy individuals who, for some reason or another, are more prone to sweating profusely beneath their arms.

How Does miraDry Work?

miraDry is an FDA-approved treatment for two types of sweating conditions: axillary (underarm) hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and axillary osmidrosis (sweat with a foul odor).

Using electromagnetic energy, a qualified doctor performs miraDry by applying the device under your arms. The in-office treatment can eliminate almost all of your underarm sweat and odor glands in a single session.

The proprietary MiraWave energy technology uses microwave energy heat to destroy the glands, a process known as thermolysis. In addition to eliminating sweating and odor, patients can also get rid of up to 70% of their underarm hair!

How Long Do Results Last?

Here’s the truly amazing part — miraDry is permanent! You will not have to receive repeated injections or ongoing treatment. Once the sweat and odor glands are destroyed, they are gone for good.

This treatment allows patients to reclaim their confidence and enjoy freedom from excessive sweating. Although hyperhidrosis can affect someone for years, miraDry can eliminate all their problems in a single treatment.

How Do I Get Started?

Scheduling a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the first step. They can discuss your experience with excessive sweating to determine whether miraDry is the right treatment for you.

Ideal candidates are in good general health and primarily suffer from excessive sweating under the arms. If your sweating requires you to continually apply antiperspirant or negatively impacts your quality of life, then you are likely a good candidate for miraDry.
