If you are one of the millions of people in America that is tired of dealing with the embarrassment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), miraDry could be your answer. Imagine never having to worry about excessive sweat, embarrassing odor, or stains on your clothing. How much would this improve your personal and professional life?
MiraDry is the latest FDA-approved technology available only in a physician’s office to reduce underarm sweat, odor, and hair. It is a short, non-invasive treatment that requires minimal downtime. Just some of the advantages of miraDry include:
MiraDry uses microwave technology through the application of a handheld device to reduce the number of underarm sweat glands. Although the word “microwave” may make the treatment sound painful, the waves used during a miraDry treatment are completely safe and non-invasive. These are different than actual waves that emanate from a microwave. As the handheld device heats the sweat glands, it simultaneously cools the outer layer of skin, protecting it from damage.
MiraDry is a quick in-office treatment providing excellent results with minimal side effects. The total treatment time is about one hour. When you arrive, Dr. Grover will use lidocaine to numb your underarm area. He will also mark the underarm to guide the treatment. The handheld applicator is then passed over the treatment area. On a scale of one to ten, most patients report the pain as a level two. You may also feel a suction sensation as the applicator moves across your skin.
One of the advantages of miraDry over other underarm treatments such as BOTOX injections is that the results last. With BOTOX injections, results may only last three to six months. With miraDry, the results could last a lifetime. Once the sweat glands are damaged, they do not typically regenerate. .
Some patients will only require one treatment with miraDry; however, you may need more than one treatment for best results. If you require more than one treatment, they are spaced roughly three months apart.
miraDry is a non-invasive procedure, and the side effects are minimal. Most patients will be able to return to their usual routine immediately after their treatment. It is possible to experience redness, swelling and mild tingling after the procedure. These symptoms are entirely typical and will pass within days. You will need to avoid vigorous exercise for roughly 72 hours after your treatment.
Dr. Grover is a highly trained board-certified plastic surgeon with an extensive background in aesthetic surgery of the face, nose, breast, and body. He is very highly regarded for his individualized care and outstanding results. Whether you are choosing to undergo complex cosmetic surgery or a simple non-invasive procedure, you can feel safe knowing that you are in the hands of an expert.
