Excessive underarm sweat is one of those problems a lot of people suffer from and try to hide. You wear clinical-grade antiperspirant and deodorant. Packing your underarms with scented and aluminum-based chemicals is bad enough and it doesn’t seem to help other than to stain your clothing. Women shop for sleeveless black tops, so the sweat doesn’t show as much. Men keep their jackets on to hide the huge water rings on their shirts. Do you have to change clothes because of excessive sweat? And the gym? Ugh, it’s the worst for sweat and odor. If you’re self-conscious about your excessive underarm sweat and/or odor you may have a condition called Hyperhidrosis. 37 million Americans are in the same boat, you’re not alone.
Until now, options include injections of a neurotoxin like Botox® or a surgical procedure called a Sympathectomy. This is major surgery, which a surgeon performs in an operating room. During sympathectomy, the surgeon tries to stop the nerve signals that your body sends to the sweat glands. To do this, the surgeon will cut or destroy certain nerves. Neurotoxin injections last only about 3 months and cost about $1200 for each treatment. Surgical intervention can run about $10,000 and carries a long recovery time. Ouch.
Technology has saved the day. There is a non-surgical permanent and cost-effective solution! You don’t have to suffer anymore. In a little as an hour, a life-changing procedure called miraDry® is your answer. miraDry® is the only FDA-cleared device to eliminate underarm sweat glands. So now you’re thinking – wait – don’t I have to sweat or isn’t unhealthy not to sweat from my underarms? NO! You only have 2% of your sweat glands located in the underarm area. 98% percent of your sweat glands are located in other areas of your body. Eliminating 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. After miraDry®, you will experience the many benefits of reducing sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat normally in other areas of your body. What goes on during the treatment is actually pretty simple. The miraDry® System uses thermal energy that targets and eliminates the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are eliminated, they do not grow back. Goodbye, sweat stains! Seriously. It’s permanent.
This procedure is pretty simple. A template is applied to the underarm area to mark the area to be treated. Next, we’ll use a local anesthetic to numb the underarm areas. The local anesthetic is injected with a multiport system so it’s pretty quick. Once you’re numb, we can start the procedure. The biotip attached to the miraDry® system applies suction to sections of the templated area during each pass, lifting the skin and fat while delivering thermal energy to the sweat and odor glands. The glands are then permanently destroyed which produces sweat and odor!
90% of patients need only one procedure treatment to experience a dramatic reduction in sweat and odor. Once the miraDry® treatment eliminates the sweat and odor glands, they’re gone for good. The treatment is clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction and 89% odor reduction. As you know, with any aesthetic treatment, patient results and experiences may vary due to anatomy. On the occasion another treatment is needed, no worries, we’re here to help, it can be done at a reduced cost.
Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime. The local anesthesia is administered to the underarms for your comfort. Most patients return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days after treatment, but that’s about it, and icing will help. Easy peasy.
You can expect immediate and lasting results. Once the glands are destroyed, they’re not coming back. You’ll now experience newfound confidence! No more worrying or ruining your clothing.
Here’s the good part! A miraDry® procedure on average is about $2,100.00. Yes, that’s for both underarms. Totally worth the price when compared to the expensive alternatives. You can spend some of your extra money on new clothing! Normally this procedure can be covered by your HSA, and we also have financing available.
