You May Get a Little Something Extra with miraDry® Treatments

miradry DanielHyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common condition among both men and women. In addition to being uncomfortable, excessive underarm sweating can also be embarrassing, thanks to the odors and stains it causes.

MiraDry® is one of the best treatments for hyperhidrosis on the market, with many people experiencing a long-term reduction in underarm sweating and odor after just two treatments. But miraDry benefits extend beyond treatment for excess sweating.

How miraDry Works

[pullquote]To reduce or eliminate underarm sweat, miraDry safely targets and destroys sweat glands.[/pullquote]The miraDry treatment system is a med spa procedure that uses thermal energy to target the sweat glands in the armpits. The handheld device moves these glands closer to the skin’s surface. Microwave technology is then used to heat and destroy the glands without causing harm to the surrounding tissue.

The treatment has FDA approval and is considered non-invasive. It requires no downtime, and most people find it to be painless.

Bonus Hair Removal

A lesser-known benefit of miraDry — besides sweating less and smelling better — is that it can also do double duty as an effective hair removal treatment. It does this by destroying the hair follicles in the underarm region while targeting sweat glands.

In fact, many doctors have observed that it works better for hair removal in certain instances than traditional laser treatments. This is because lasers need contrast to work — lighter skin and darker hair. MiraDry does not need this contrast, which means that those with hair tones similar to their skin can still be treated and see results.

If you would like to reduce or eliminate embarrassing underarm sweat while also removing hair, miraDry might be right for you. To learn more, call our office at 541-687-8900 or head over to our contact page.
