HOW miraDry PREVENTS EXCESSIVE SWEATING
FROM RUINING YOUR LIFE
You sweat when it’s hot and even when it’s cold. You sweat when you run, but also when you’re at rest. You even sweat even when you’re wearing light and airy clothes.
If these situations sound familiar to you, then you might have hyperhidrosis.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
miraDry: The Revolutionary Solution to Hyperhidrosis
You don’t have to miss out on life’s exciting events because of extreme perspiration.
It is the first FDA-cleared device that dramatically lessens underarm sweat, stops hair growth, and eliminates odor-producing glands.
With miraDry, you can permanently reduce underarm sweat, hair, and odor the non-invasive way.
HOW DOES miraDry WORK?
WHO’S A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR miraDry TREATMENTS?
Anyone who’s 18 years old and above can get a miraDry treatment.
Paraben is an artificial preservative that mimics estrogen activity and is often found in breast tumors.
Propylene glycol has been discovered to cause contact dermatitis and was also found to be toxic to both the liver and kidneys.
Take note that this procedure cannot be used for hyperhidrosis of the hands and feet since it’s still awaiting approval from the FDA.
WHAT ARE THE RESULTS OF miraDry?
The results of miraDry are immediate and long-lasting, but they vary from person to person.
Around 93.8% of those suffering from foul underarm odor also experienced noticeable improvement. However, some patients get results right after the first treatment, while others had to get a third session to make miraDry work for them.
The results of that study echoed earlier research by the University of British Columbia in 2012 showing that miraDry can reduce underarm perspiration in more than 90% of patients. In fact, patients rated their treatment satisfaction at 90%.
It’s normal to have absolutely no sweat in your armpits right after the treatment. But expect some sweating to return in about two to three weeks after the procedure, though it’s not as profuse as before.
You should also remember miraDry only treats your underarms, so you’ll continue to sweat in other parts of your body.
Is there significant downtime and recovery?
Since miraDry is a noninvasive procedure, there’s usually no downtime.
Patients experience little to no discomfort during and after the procedure.
But if you’re planning to exercise, it’s recommended to postpone it for a couple of days. You should also avoid scheduling an important event right after your miraDry treatments.
Are there any risks and side effects?
Contrary to popular belief, getting rid of your underarm sweat glands won’t pose any harmful effects to your body. That’s because only 2% of the body’s almost four million sweat glands are found in your armpits. Thus, removing your underarm sweat glands won’t affect your body’s ability to cool itself.
But like other procedures, miraDry has its own set of minor side effects. You might experience underarm swelling, soreness, bruising, and redness, which may last for days or weeks. The swelling also varies from person to person—it might lead to minor irritation or the development of large lumps.
It’s also normal to experience changes in skin sensation, numbness, and tingling in the upper arm or armpits up to five weeks.
HOW MUCH DOES miraDry COST?
At Face + Body Cosmetic Surgery, the price starts at $2,250, with additional treatments costing $995. Payments starting as low as $62/month.
Because miraDry gets rid of sweat glands in your underarms, you can expect less sweating that leads to uncomfortable moments. It can boost your confidence and self-esteem.
