miraDry is a treatment that uses microwave energy to reduce or remove the sweat glands under the arms without surgery. The waves safely destroy excess sweat glands, which renders them permanently disabled. This helps to address the issue of uncontrollable sweating.
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms necessitating miraDry include those with uncontrollable sweating that is often accompanied by body odor and a feeling of constant sweat.
Who gets it?
Uncontrollable sweating can affect almost anyone, including skinny people and those in great shape. miraDry benefits individuals who have had no luck with prescription or industrial strength deodorants, or for anyone who is embarrassed by unsightly sweat marks and potential body odor issues.
Forefront dermatologists trained to administer this procedure use a device to target sweat glands beneath the underarm skin. The electromagnetic technology zaps the excess glands while simultaneously cooling and protecting the top layers of skin.
