What is miraDry®If you find yourself with constantly sweaty underarms, even when you’re not warm or exerting yourself at all, you might have hyperhidrosis, the medical term for excessive sweating. Over 37 million people in the United States have hyperhidrosis, and it can cause stress and embarrassment. While we need to sweat when trying to stay cool, people with hyperhidrosis sweat even when not necessary. As an FDA-cleared treatment for excessive sweating, miraDry® requires no invasive procedures and often gets results in only one session.
How Does miraDry® Work?The miraDry® handheld applicator emits energy that targets the sweat glands in the underarm area without harming the surrounding skin. The energy transmits heat to the sweat glands, deactivating them, so they no longer produce any sweat. One treatment will dramatically decrease underarm sweating for most people. You can also stop worrying about odor since odor-causing bacteria in the underarm need sweat to survive.
