Underarm sweat is bad enough, but having to deal with it all the time can get really frustrating. Persistent wetness under the arms impacts both physical comfort and our self-esteem. If odor coincides with wetness, the management of personal hygiene can become a chore as well. Thankfully, you don’t have to live with excessive underarm sweat a moment longer. At Behr Laser & Skin Care Center, our own Dr. Behr offers an innovative solution to end hyperhidrosis for good. It’s called miraDry® Sweat Less, and it can do wonders to help you look and feel more comfortable.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
What Is miraDry® Sweat Less?
miraDry® Sweat Less is a procedure that uses non-invasive, FDA-cleared technology to dramatically reduce sweat, odor, and hair growth! This revolutionary system safely and effectively targets the glands that produce underarm sweat and causes them to become dormant. No toxins or painful injections are needed for this treatment, instead, miraDry® uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat and odor glands reside and safely eliminates them. If embarrassing underarm sweat, stained clothing, odor, and frequent antiperspirant application are interfering with your daily life, you may be a good candidate for this treatment.
What Does miraDry® Sweat Less Address?
This system is a perfect choice for addressing hyperhidrosis symptoms related to excess sweating and foul odor. Unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments, miraDry® does not involve any injections. This system instead utilizes miraWave™ energy to heat your skin in a controlled and effective manner. The procedure prevents your glands from producing excess sweat, allowing you to feel more comfortable.
How Does This Treatment Work?
The miraDry® treatment process is straightforward and the entire visit can be done in about an hour. The procedure targets sweat and odor glands below the skin’s surface. When these glands absorb the miraWave™ energy, they heat up in a controlled manner. This heating induces thermolysis or controlled deterioration. Both sweat and odor glands respond similarly to the gentle energy delivered during treatment, facilitating immediate and lasting improvement.
What Results Can I Expect?
The best part of this treatment is its long-lasting results! Initially, after treatment, underarm sweat production may cease altogether. As swelling subsides, a degree of sweating is expected to return. Clinical data on miraDry® patients demonstrates a high degree of efficiency for both hyperhidrosis and osmidrosis (foul odor). The treatment is clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction and 89% odor reduction.
