Sweating is healthy. However, having an abundance of underarm sweating and odor can be disgusting. If you have this situation and have tried several conservative options to control the sweating and odor without success, then it’s time to explore more revolutionary non-invasive options at A Beautiful You Medical Spa. Have you thought of eliminating the problem permanently? That is what MiraDry permanent sweat reduction is all about. With this treatment option, you will get to go through your life without being self-conscious about the excessive sweating and smelling.
This is a groundbreaking treatment option cleared by FDA that can help you forget about sweaty and smelly armpits forever. It involves sending thermal energy into your hair, odor, and sweat glands through your skin using an innovative handheld MiraDry device. The energy destroys the glands for good reducing the sweat and odor. Studies have shown that you can get up to 82% sweat reduction, which is a good result.
However, note that this treatment option only treats 2% of your body’s entire glands. This means that the procedure does not affect your body’s cooling ability as the body has about 4 million sweat glands, and only 2 % are found on your underarm. This means that you will enjoy the benefits of the MiraDry procedure and continue to sweat in other areas of your body.
Preparation for MiraDry Treatment
During your consultation appointment, your provider will give you the necessary instructions to help you get ready for the procedure. You will need to shave your armpits about 4-6 days before your procedure appointment day. When the day comes, you can wear your loose clothes and ensure that your underarms are exposed. It would help if you also avoided any antiperspirant or deodorant when going for the treatment procedure.
The MiraDry Treatment Procedure
Once you are set for the procedure, your provider applies a local anesthetic to your underarms to get started. This ensures you much comfort during the procedure, as most patients say that the procedure is entirely painless. Your provider prepares the treatment area by sketching a temporary tattoo to mark the specific area to release the energy. Your provider then moves the MiraDry device in the treatment area as the device releases the thermal energy into your glands.
What You Can Expect After the Treatment
You can get back to your routine, including work after the MiraDry treatment. After only a few days, you can also resume your exercises. However, you might experience some sensitivity in the treated area for a few days after the procedure. However, you can easily manage this using ice packs and ibuprofen. You might also experience some localized swelling or soreness, which should also clear up within a few weeks.
The results are relatively instant where you will leave the office while you are already enjoying the dramatic reduction in sweat and odor production. Although you may experience the results with just one treatment, you might require another treatment, but your provider will determine the best protocol to be used to achieve your desired goals.
If you are sick of that excessive sweating and unpleasant odor from your underarms, it is time to seek expert help from the MiraDry permanent sweat reduction specialists. This is a procedure that will eliminate your problem with no pain or downtime.
