miraDry in New York / NYC
Do you sweat excessively despite little activity during the day and applying antiperspirant frequently? Do you find yourself constantly having to change clothes because you sweat too much?
These are some of the reasons people are interested in miraDry, a device used to treat hyperhidrosis, better known as excessive sweating.
Sweat is our body’s way of naturally cooling itself off. If you were physically active; cleaning, exercising, gardening, playing with your kids and so forth, and you were not sweating at all there would be a problem. However, some people sweat too much, especially in the armpit region where a thicker and darker colored fluid is produced. This can lead to embarrassing perspiration rings on clothing which also can ruin them.
miraDry is a clinically proven and FDA cleared device to treat excessive sweating in the armpit region without the use of surgery or chemicals. The device eliminates sweat glands under the arm which are not replaced once they are eliminated.
Benefits of miraDry include:
Possible side effects of miraDry typically clear up within a few weeks and may include:
When compared to Botox, antiperspirants and invasive procedures, miraDry offers a better option because it is non-invasive, uses no chemicals and it gives a long lasting or even permanent result unlike Botox which requires multiple and continuous injections. There is minimal downtime once the procedure is completed and you should be able to return to work the same day and resume daily activities. The procedure itself only lasts an hour and usually only requires two sessions, three months apart. miraDry is safe to use on adults 18 and over and cannot be used to treat hyperhidrosis anywhere else on the body, which includes the hands and feet.
