Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common disorder that can cause embarrassment and social isolation. People who suffer from hyperhidrosis often have to take measures to avoid sweat stains, such as carrying extra clothing with them or avoiding social situations. Fortunately, now there is a new treatment available for hyperhidrosis called miraDry! miraDry uses precise thermal energy to destroy the sweat glands, providing long-lasting relief from excessive sweating.
If you sweat excessively, you are definitely not alone. Hyperhidrosis affects an estimated 15 million people in the United States. It can be caused by a variety of things, including medical conditions, medications, and anxiety. Hyperhidrosis can be a socially debilitating condition, as it can lead to embarrassment and avoidance of social situations. It can also cause skin problems, as the constant moisture can lead to fungal infections or irritation.
Hyperhidrosis is often treated with antiperspirants, which work by blocking the sweat glands. However, antiperspirants are not always effective, and they can cause skin irritation. miraDry is a new treatment that uses thermal energy to permanently destroy the sweat glands. miraDry has been found to be effective in reducing sweating by up to 82%!
For best results, we typically recommend 2 sessions of miraDry, spaced 3 months apart.
There is little to no downtime after your miraDry appointment. However, you may experience some swelling or soreness in the area.
