How Does miraDry Stop Sweating? Learn The Answer
If you suffer from excessive or unwanted sweating, then it’s important for you to find a way to manage it. But why simply manage underarm sweating by concealing it with deodorant or antiperspirant, or decreasing it with Botox injections, if you have the ability to make the problem stop altogether? If you’ve never heard of miraDry, then you should consult your dermatologist, and ask the question: how does miraDry stop sweating?
“MiraDry is a noninvasive procedure, which eliminates the sweat glands in the armpit area,” explains Dr. Miriam Hanson, board certified dermatologist and cosmetic expert at Sanova Dermatology in Austin, Texas. “This FDA-approved device is able to destroy the sweat glands which after this procedure, will not grow back.” This makes the miraDry method a very effective and permanent solution.
The treatment itself will consist of having your underarms numbed, which will help to keep you from any discomfort. Once you are numb, the handheld device will be placed on the area that has been previously marked.
After it is in the right location, it will be turned on, and you may feel some suction. This suction works to bring the sweat glands closer to the surface of the skin for the treatment. Finally, miraDry will release a patented energy that will destroy sweat and odor glands, while simultaneously cooling the area to protect your skin.
Once those glands are destroyed, they will not grow back. You also shouldn’t worry about possible side effects, simply because you won’t have those sweat glands.
“The human body is full of sweat glands, about 2 million in all. The ones located in the armpit only make up about 2%,” explains Dr. Hanson. “The 98% remaining after the procedure are more then adequate to keep the body cool and regulate temperature without embarrassing underarm wetness.” If you suffer from unwanted and at times crippling underarm sweating, you should consider miraDry.
