MiraDry is a sweat stopping solution
Summer is upon us and that means that it’s sweat season, and all those cans of Sure and Lynx will be getting double airings. Some people however will find mere cans of deodorant puny things in the battle against sweat patches on their shirts, and this is due to a condition called Hyperhidrosis. What Hyperhidrosis means is that you sweat more than normal- often unexpectedly soaking your clothes, and it can come with age, medications, or for no reason at all. This might not sound that bad, but imagine it in a work situation, or a date- water rolling down your face is not going to make you feel confident.
Up till now options were fairly limited. There are special prescription deodorants, and there were Botox underarm injections (yes, really) but all of these solutions are temporary and need repeating- which also makes them expensive.
MiraDry is a new procedure designed to help sufferers, and it works in a different way to anything I’ve seen before. It works by eliminating some of the sweat glands under the arm, and by reducing the amount of glands there you also have less sweat.
Treatments are done in a clinicians office, and the MiraDry sends electromagnetic energy into the sweat glands, destroying a certain number of them, so you get an immediate relieving effect of your symptoms. Underarms are first numbed for your comfort, and it;s suggested to have two sessions, around 3 months apart for the best results. using this on the underarms does not mean you won’t be able to regulate heat-as not enough are destroyed to affect your daily comfort.
The MiraDRy system only treats underarms (so far) so face and feet may still be a problem
