If you suffer from excessive sweating, you may be tired of having to constantly hide your armpit stains. After all, you want to enjoy the freedom of lifting your arms without wondering if others will see your underarm sweat. Plus, you’d really like to keep your favorite shirts around for longer – you’ve lost more than a few to underarm stains!
If the above sounds familiar, you may be a good candidate for miraDry, an FDA-approved treatment that uses laser energy to target overactive sweat glands in the armpit region. With just a single miraDry treatment, most patients see a significant reduction in underarm sweating.
So how exactly does miraDry work – and how can it reduce underarm sweat and stains on clothing?
Excessive sweating – also known as hyperhidrosis – is a condition that occurs when sweat glands misinterpret the brain’s signals to regulate body temperature. Sweat is a reaction to the body’s efforts to cool down, but if you suffer from hyperhidrosis, your sweat glands think it’s hot all the time. As a result, you sweat even when you’re feeling chilly in the middle of a winter evening.
miraDry targets those overactive sweat glands by damaging them with laser heat energy. The glands are no longer able to produce sweat; as a result, patients are able to enjoy drier, sweat-free armpits. Best of all, the results from a miraDry treatment are permanent, so you don’t need to worry about those sweat glands coming back to stain your clothing.
Speaking of which, miraDry is an excellent solution for patients who may feel self-conscious about the appearance of underarm stains. So whether you’re tired of getting rid of your favorite shirts or just want to lift your arms without worrying about what’s lurking underneath, miraDry could be right for you.
