What is Hyperhidrosis?

Do you sweat excessively even when you’re barely moving around? If a walk to the shop leaves you drenched in sweat, you might suffer from hyperhidrosis. Sweating is a normal reaction to your body temperature heating up as it is designed to cool you down. Nevertheless, it is not normal to sweat excessively in ‘normal’ conditions. This is what hyperhidrosis refers to, and it’s a condition that can cause body odor and a host of concerns in social situations.

How Does miraDry® Treat Hyperhidrosis?

miraDry® offers a non-invasive and non-surgical solution to excessive sweating. It works by getting to the root of the problem; your sweat glands. Everyone has sweat glands under their arms, and miraDry® will essentially remove them, stopping you from sweating under your armpits. 

The procedure involves a unique handpiece that does two different things:

  • When placed under your armpits it will attach to your skin and raise it upwards and away from the tissues beneath it. This raises the sweat glands closer to the outer surface, where the handpiece will then provide a burst of thermal energy directly to them. The glands absorb this energy and break down, becoming absorbed by the body. 
  • At the same time, the miraDry® handpiece also cools your underarm to keep the treatment as comfortable as possible. This provides a relaxing sensation, almost as though your armpits are being iced. 

Following the treatment, you no longer have sweat glands under your arms, so you will not sweat from there anymore. Instead, you will sweat from all of the other glands you have around your body. That’s a key point to make: miraDry® won’t stop your entire body from sweating, it just tackles underarm sweat caused by hyperhidrosis.

How Long Will miraDry® Last?

One of the reasons Dr. Brenman provides this treatment is that it delivers long-term results. In fact, the results will last a lifetime as your sweat glands can’t grow back. As soon as the treatment is over, the glands are no longer there, so you don’t have to worry about sweating excessively from your armpits anymore. This is highly beneficial and can solve so many issues that have caused confidence problems for you. 

Am I a Candidate for miraDry®?

Are you currently suffering from hyperhidrosis and seeing too much sweat under your arms? Do you always smell of body odor because of excessive sweating, no matter how much antiperspirant you put on? If your underarm sweat bothers you and makes you feel self-conscious, miraDry® is a safe and proven treatment that can solve the problem of hyperhidrosis. As well as this, ideal candidates will be at least 18 years of age at the time of treatment.
