Perspiration is a normal bodily function that naturally keeps you cool. But, for 3% of the population it is excessive, and often embarrassing. Until a few years ago, the only treatment available was prescription strength antiperspirants that often failed to deliver good results. Now there is an effective treatment at Medical Cosmetics to stop armpit sweat. It is called miraDry and here is what it can do for you.
Stop Underarm Sweat
MiraDry is a non-invasive FDA cleared treatment for excessive sweating. The procedure is safe, painless, and has no downtime, allowing you to get back to your regular routine immediately after the treatment. The only limit is to avoid strenuous upper body exercise for a couple of days after the service is performed. Usually, only one or two treatments are necessary to stop underarm sweat in its tracks. Afterward, you can enjoy dry armpits despite the summer heat!
How Does MiraDry Work?
The treatment targets sweat glands in the underarm area using microwaves. On the day of the procedure the technician marks the area to be treated. A topical anesthetic is administered to minimize discomfort. Using a tool known as a bioTip the professionals at Medical Cosmetics treat the sweat glands with microwave energy, minimizing the amount of sweat they can produce. This effect is permanent, and as a bonus, some patients will notice a reduction in hair growth too!
Safe & Effective
Often, we are asked about the safety of stopping underarm sweat, with patients believing that underarm perspiration is vital to how the body functions. Luckily, that’s not the case. The underarm contains only 2-4% of the body’s sweat glands, and the human body is quite capable of cooling itself without them. Thousands of people have undergone this treatment and are thrilled with the results.
Instead of keeping your arms down to hide embarrassing sweat stains this summer, raise your hands over your head and enjoy your freedom from excessive sweating. Contact Medical Cosmetics today and see if our miraDry treatment is right for you.
