Excessive sweat can cause several issues in your daily life. Sometimes, deodorant is not enough to deal with the problem. This is where non-surgical, non-invasive miraDry® can really save the day. Rather than trying to fight off the symptoms of sweating, this treatment can stop it from happening all together by permanently destroying the glands that cause the moisture and odor.
How Does miraDry® Work?
The miraDry® process is designed to destroy the sweat glands underneath your arms. As you know, sweating actually plays an important role for your body. The reality is that you do need sweat glands, but of the 2 million on your body, only 2% are actually located underneath your arms.
When you have your treatment, a map will be created of the glands in your armpits. Next, the glands will be marked on your arm, ensuring that your treatment is effective. Your underarm will be numbed before the miraWave handpiece is used to treat the area. You will notice a slight suction as the device pulls your skin and glands closer. The highly effective miraWave energy is delivered, destroying both the sweat and odor glands under your arms. While all this is happening, a cooling action is happening to keep you comfortable.
