What Is miraDry®?

One fact that everyone can universally agree upon is that underarm sweat is a problem no one wants to experience in their daily lives. Many people associate underarm sweat with lengthy physical activities, such as exercising and workouts.

It’s also something that is likely to occur when exposed to or working in extremely hot temperatures for long periods. Unfortunately, underarm sweat can also occur in some people that may otherwise lead sedentary lives in cool environments.

What Does miraDry® Treat?

miraDry® is an effective cosmetic treatment that addresses excessive underarm sweating or hyperhidrosis. There’s no denying that excessive underarm sweat or “hyperhidrosis” to give it the medical term can be a big problem. It can result in unsightly sweat stains on clothing and mean people have a limited wardrobe choice to disguise the problem.

Hyperhidrosis can also result in a massive knock on a person’s self-confidence, especially when interacting with people in social settings. Thankfully, one treatment solution offered at Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz can address that problem.

miraDry® is a proprietary underarm sweat treatment solution offered by Dr. Craig Schwartz, a triple board-certified surgeon, at his facility – Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz.

Why Underarm Sweating Is An Issue

The human body comprises two to four million sweat glands, and approximately 2% of those sweat glands are under the arms. miraDry® might not seem like it treats a lot. However, it’s worth noting that underarm sweating can be a big problem.

That’s because it’s most visible on people that haven’t been outdoors doing light work on a hot day or exercising and working out. It can cause people experiencing hyperhidrosis to have limited clothing choices for fear of embarrassment.

Why miraDry®?

It’s no secret there are some alternative options for people experiencing excessive underarm sweating. With that in mind, why is miraDry® such a good idea? Firstly, it’s a proven proprietary system that eradicates underarm sweat and odor glands.

Secondly, it’s a clinically approved method for having dry underarms. Finally, miraDry® doesn’t require any surgical procedures to put an end to excessive underarm sweating permanently.

Are Underarm Sweat And Odor Glands Needed?

In a word, no. The human body is full of sweat and odor glands, and so sweating is still possible from other areas when doing lengthy physical activities. miraDry® only targets underarm sweat and odor glands.

How miraDry® Works

The miraDry® treatment system used at Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz works by harnessing electromagnetic technology. The microwave energy only targets hair follicles and sweat glands, leaving the surrounding skin intact.

Our laser aesthetician uses miraDry® to deliver precise and targeted electromagnetic energy on the underarm area, which causes permanent damage to the sweat glands and the oil glands that produce odors.

After your underarm area is numbed through a series of injections, the treatment begins with your provider applying a temporary tattoo to mark the skin, which will guide the miraDry® device to target specific areas. A handheld device that’s part of the miraDry® system is used to target and destroy sweat and odor glands on the underarm. You will feel a slight suction. The glands in your underarm move closer to the surface of your skin for maximum results.

Many clients can enjoy the benefits of miraDry® after a single treatment session, although some people may need a follow-up session if they experience a severe case of hyperhidrosis.

Benefits Of miraDry®

Although miraDry® is the perfect non-invasive treatment for people suffering with excessive underarm sweat, it’s truly ideal for anyone bothered by underarm sweat.  The system uses electromagnetic technology and doesn’t require any incisions.

Another advantage of miraDry® is each treatment session only takes less than one hour to complete. It’s, therefore, possible to have the treatment during a work lunch break.

miraDry® doesn’t have any downtime. After a treatment session, it’s possible to resume normal daily activities. Dr. Schwarz recommends avoiding exercise for a few days post-treatment to have optimal results.

miraDry® is also the only FDA-approved underarm sweating treatment of its kind. That means it’s safe for people to have. Lastly, it’s a cost-effective and permanent solution compared to BOTOX® treatments, which require ongoing injections.

Am I A Candidate For miraDry®?

You might be a candidate for miraDry® if you experience excessive underarm sweating or hyperhidrosis. It’s a permanent solution as it destroys the sweat and odor glands that cause so many problems for those affected by hyperhidrosis.
