miraDry in New York City with Dr. Shridharani
What Is miraDry?
miraDry is an exciting and innovative device that treats hyperhidrosis, or excessive underarm sweating. This device uses technology that targets and destroys the sweat glands and odor producing cells in your underarms. Having this procedure in New York with Dr. Shridharani permanently stops underarm sweating and odor from forming.
Who Is a Good Candidate for miraDry?
If you are someone that uses antiperspirant/deodorant, then you are a candidate for hyperhidrosis treatment! miraDry is a great treatment for people suffering from hyperhidrosis, or people who are tired of excessive underarm sweat. It is the perfect solution for anyone who is looking for dryer days from here on out!
Benefits of Hyperhidrosis Treatment
miraDry treatment has several benefits and is definitely a game-changing lifestyle cosmetic procedure. Imagine not showing sweat stains on that favorite silk blouse ever again. Imagine being in the office wearing your favorite suit without drenching your work shirt and no more excess odor when at the gym. Anxious about that first date? Don’t let her know by sweating through your best shirt. Don’t ruin another black cocktail dress with chalky white deodorant residue. Most importantly, no more harsh chemicals on your body everyday.
Most patients find that after one or two treatments, daily use of antiperspirant/deodorant is no longer necessary. That’s right, no more odor or sweat! You will no longer have to apply harsh chemicals several times a day to stop sweating and only mask odor. Finally, no more expensive dry cleaning bills for shirts and blouses with underarm stains. Also, you will never throw another work shirt away because of the strange firmness from repeated deodorant use.
Are miraDry Results Permanent?
Yes, miraDry permanently kills the sweat and odor producing glands in your underarms. Once the sweat and odor glands are destroyed, they do not grow back. No more worrying about pit stains, spending excess money on antiperspirants, or feeling extra uncomfortable on a hot day! If any of this sounds beneficial to you, then you may be a candidate for miraDry
Will miraDry Cause More Sweating In Other Areas?
NO! your underarms house only 1-2% of the total sweat glands in your body. Sweating is the natural response to overheating and/or anxiety. The evaporation of sweat off our skin leads to a cooling effect. Our perception is that we primarily sweat in our underarms; however, our arms tend to be at our sides most of the day with fitted clothing.
After undergoing a hyperhidrosis treatment at LUXURGERY, you would expect even distribution of sweating and NO increased perspiration from any other particular areas of your body. The only thing you will notice is that you are clean and dry in your underarms throughout the day or your work out. In addition, harsh antiperspirants and deodorants are chemicals that aim to stop sweating and mask odor. No chemical or detergent is good to apply to your skin everyday.
What is the process of the miraDry treatment at LUXURGERY?
Once a patient has come in for a consultation for miraDry and found to be a good candidate for treatment, Dr. Shridharani or one our skilled nurses or medical assistants will assess the treatment area and place a temporary grid on that anatomic locations (underarm). The size of the grid will determine how long and aggressive your treatment will be. Next, a slight amount of lidocaine will be injected in the treatment area. The miraDry system will use “microwave energy” to destroy the odor and sweat glands along with hair follicles in the patients’ underarms. These glands and hair follicles do not grow back once they are destroyed ensuring treatment permanence.
miraDry is an office-based procedure performed in the comfort of Dr. Shridharani’s office. The procedure takes approximately 1-2 hours. Patients can resume most normal daily activities right away. Vigorous exercise should not be performed for the first 24-48 hours, as most individuals experience slight tenderness and swelling for 1-2 days after this safe procedure.
Patients see results immediately after the procedure!
Does miraDry hurt?
The miraDry treatment at LUXURGERY is a virtually painless treatment. There is minimal discomfort when having the underarms numbed. The post procedure discomfort is managed with Advil or Tylenol and icing for 24-48 hours.
How Many miraDry Treatments Will I Need?
While it varies from patient to patient, most will only need one to two rounds of treatment to permanently get rid of the sweating and odor from the underarms. Once treatment is complete, the results of miraDry are completely permanent.
miraDry Side Effects
