Be like the Stars: Keep Underarm Sweat to a Minimum with miraDry

miradryOne of Hollywood’s biggest secrets is starting to become more accessible. If you’ve ever wondered how celebrities can walk the red carpet and stand under all those hot lights without sweating all over their expensive clothes – the answer is miraDry! MiraDry works where deodorants don’t, by eliminating sweat glands. Many celebrities now use it, including talk show host Wendy Williams, who battles hyperhidrosis AKA excessive sweating.

There’s nothing worse than being too sweaty all the time. It’s never ending: any small amount of exertion and suddenly you have noticeable patches of underarm sweat on your new clothes. Anything from being nervous to wearing a coat can trigger flop sweats. There has to be something better than the dozens of kinds of deodorants and antiperspirants you’ve already tried, right?

Try miraDry

What makes miraDry so safe is its use of electromagnetic energy to eliminate sweat glands. After they are eliminated, your sweat glands don’t regenerate, so your results will last for a long time. It doesn’t just remove sweat glands, either, miraDry also removes odor glands that cause embarrassing body odor.

Although there are treatments like Botox and oral medications to help with underarm sweating, they don’t come close to the long-lasting results and efficacy of miraDry—and they don’t even address body odor issues that come with excessive sweating.

Won’t it Hurt?

The entire procedure takes less than an hour, and since it doesn’t require surgery or suturing you can get it done in your doctor’s office. The procedure’s incredibly easy too: your underarm will be numbed so that you won’t feel anything, and the only thing you have to do is relax and lie down.

You can return to regular activity almost immediately after the treatment. It’s easy, so don’t sweat it!

Does miraDry Change how You Sweat?

Fun fact: your armpits only contain 2% of your body’s sweat glands. After miraDry, your body will still sweat normally from the rest of your sweat glands.

What About Side Effects?

You might experience some mild side effects immediately after the procedure: some tingling, numbness, soreness, and swelling have been common side effects. Don’t worry, these side effects are temporary and should go away soon enough.

Sweating can be a perpetually repeating condition; even being nervous about sweating can start to trigger more bouts of sweating. If you decide to get miraDry, you’ll be saying goodbye to all the worry and anxiety you get from excessive underarm sweat; you’ll be a lot more confident knowing that your shirt will stay dry no matter what. If you want your miraDry procedure from a respected dermatology practice, contact Abadir Associates now for a consultation.

Sweat Happens! Luckily, miraDry Can Help

miraDry

Embarrassing armpit stains happen to the best of us–even celebrities. The good news is, they don’t have to. You can banish underarm sweat for good and avoid red carpet disasters like these with miraDry. You don’t have to be a celebrity to lift your arms with confidence. Someone needs to tell these leading ladies about miraDry.

What Is miraDry?

miraDry dramatically reduces underarm sweat with lasting results. It applies precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the area where sweat glands reside and eliminates them. Since sweat glands don’t regenerate, results will last. If you have excess underarm sweat, ask us about miraDry.

Is Excessive Sweating Common?

If you suffer from excessive sweating, you aren’t alone. It is estimated that approximately 20% of the U.S. population sweats more than they would like. Although excessive sweating is common, most people just suffer in silence. Of those with severe sweating, only 5% have talked with their doctor. Solutions are available. Ask us about miraDry.

Don’t I Need Sweat Glands?

You might be surprised to learn that you don’t need sweat glands in your armpits. Your body has about two million sweat glands—far more than it needs. The miraDry treatment is safe, effective, and FDA approved. The procedure is highly targeted and only treats specific sweat glands.

Is miraDry Invasive?

The miraDry procedure is non-surgical and non-invasive. The treatment area is numbed to ensure your comfort. It takes about an hour, after which you can resume your regular activities with no downtime. You may experience a bit of tingling, numbness, etc. in the first days after treatment, but this should fade quickly.

Am I a Good Candidate for miraDry?

Many of our patients are good candidates for miraDry. If you’ve tried other sweat-reducing treatments (like prescription antiperspirant or Botox), miraDry may be a better solution for you. Ask us about this treatment if you feel embarrassed by your underarm sweat.

Celebrity or not, excessive underarm sweat is the pits (pardon the pun!). Say goodbye to embarrassing underarm wetness. Ask us about miraDry!

miraDry: The Safe and Effective Cure for Excess Sweating

miraDry: The Safe and Effective Cure for Excess Sweating

What is miraDry?

A safe, FDA-cleared sweat reduction solution, miraDry is a non-surgical treatment that is clinically proven to reduce sweating. Prescription antiperspirants, botulinum toxin A injections and oral medications just temporarily reduce the problem, whereas miraDry provides long-lasting relief without surgery.

The treatment uses electromagnetic energy to heat the sweat glands under the arm, eliminating them. Sweat glands do not regenerate, making the results of this procedure very long-lasting. It is non-invasive (no cuts or incisions needed) and requires no downtime. Results can be seen immediately after treatment. In one clinical study, patients experienced an average of 82% reduction in underarm sweat.

Is miraDry Painful?

Before your miraDry treatment, we will numb the underarm area using a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. You may feel pressure, a pulling sensation and feelings of warmth. On a 1 to 10 pain scale (10 being the highest), the average discomfort level is 2. Treatment takes about an hour and is typically well tolerated, both during and after treatment.

After treatment, you may experience some discomfort, but this is usually controlled quite easily with over-the-counter pain medications and ice packs. You can return to normal activities (including most careers) immediately. Avoid exercise for a few days.

Is miraDry Effective?

Does it feel like you’ve already tried every other option to control your sweat, without the results you’ve been hoping for? miraDry is different. Most patients experience dramatic, long lasting sweat reduction after treatment. Typically, two treatments are needed for optimal results. Of course, results can vary, but overall the procedure has an 89% “Worth It” rating from realself.com. For many, miraDry treatment means the end of too much sweat.

Do I Need miraDry?

How much should I sweat? Many people wonder if their sweat levels are normal. If you sweat more than you’d like, come see us and find out if miraDry is right for you. In general, you may have excessive sweating if:

  • You’re embarrassed by your sweat.
  • You find yourself applying antiperspirant multiple times a day.
  • You change your clothes due to sweating.
  • You choose clothing based on how well it hides sweat.
  • You’re embarrassed to lift your arms in public.
