What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes you to sweat an abnormal amount. It’s not necessarily related to exercising or body heat, and you might sweat so much that it soaks into your clothes. Some might even sweat so much that it drips from their hands. Hyperhidrosis might just seem like a nuisance, but it can actually cause social anxiety or even embarrassment in some people.

While most people sweat when they exert themselves or when it’s hot, sweating from hyperhidrosis exceeds the amount of normal sweating. It usually affects the hands, underarms, feet and face. It often happens during waking hours and the sweating can occur all over the body. Most people simply deal with their hyperhidrosis by being more mindful and attempting to cool off their body, but it can become a serious condition especially if the sweating is accompanied by lightheadedness, chest pain and nausea.

Thankfully, there’s an effective solution that can help you treat excessive sweating; miraDry.

miraDry for Hyperhidrosis

miraDry is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for hyperhidrosis. It’s a noninvasive treatment that uses energy to target and ablating the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. By targeting those glands and disabling them, they won’t grow back and it will greatly reduce the amount you sweat to normal levels.

miraDry works by numbing your underarm and then placing a handpiece on the skin. Once activated, the handpiece will cause a slight suction effect on the skin. It will then send pulses of microwave energy that is aimed at the sweat and odor glands, disabling them completely. A soothing cooling effect is then applied to the skin to minimize discomfort.

miraDry offers immediate lasting results with minimal or no downtime. It’s also free of toxins, quick to perform and offers a dramatic reduction of underarm sweat. miraDry is also an affordable solution for dealing with hyperhidrosis. After the procedure, you can expect an immediate end to hyperhidrosis in the armpits. miraDry is a permanent solution since it targets the sweat and odor glands and they don’t grow back.
