How Can MiraDry Help My Excessive Sweating?
- Posted on: Jun 15 2023
Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, can make living your normal life difficult and an active lifestyle even harder. Sweat is a natural part of the human body that helps regulate our body temperature. However, sweating excessively can stain clothes, be uncomfortable, and cause skincare problems. Thankfully, hyperhidrosis treatments like MiraDry exist to help relieve symptoms. Let’s take a look at how MiraDry can be used as an effective excessive sweating treatment.
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. Excessive sweating is caused by your sweat glands overworking for seemingly no reason. This can happen from a spinal cord injury, being in distress, anxiety, certain foods or odors, or even an overreaction to heat. Symptoms of hyperhidrosis include excessive sweating, itching, body odor, paleness, discoloration of the skin, and residue being left on the skin.
How Can MiraDry Help?
MiraDry is a treatment option specifically used for hyperhidrosis in the underarm. Hyperhidrosis in the armpit is usually the most frustrating because of staining and embarrassment. MiraDry is a device that targets sweat glands in the underarm and destroys them. These sweat glands will not grow back and will no longer produce sweat in that area. Any sweat that is produced there should be minimal and a significant improvement.
An area will be first marked for treatment and mapped out to decide the best method of treatment. Then, local numbing agents will be used to make sure the procedure is comfortable. Finally, the MiraDry device will use microwave energy to destroy the sweat glands. The procedure usually takes about one to two hours.
