The fall season is upon us. In the summer, it’s hard to avoid underarm sweat because of how hot it is. Now that cooler weather is on the horizon, it’s time to pay attention to whether you still seem to have a lot of underarm sweat or excessive odor. If you do, it’s nothing to be ashamed of. In the United States alone, over 30 million people suffer from excessive sweating, which is also called hyperhidrosis. If you want to stop underarm sweat permanently – and within an hour – miraDry® treatments may be right for you.
How Does miraDry® Work?
You have over two million sweat glands on your body. Most of the time, they function normally and produce sweat to help you cool off if your body is overheated. But for some areas of the body, especially the underarms, those sweat glands are overactive and seem to always produce sweat. If this happens to you, it’s embarrassing, and you may change your plans or your clothes around it.
When you choose miraDry® to help deactivate the sweat glands, you’re giving up an hour of time to say goodbye to underarm wetness and odor for good. To start the treatment, numbing cream or anesthesia will be applied to the underarm in order for you to be as comfortable as possible. Next, a nurse will put a temporary tattoo on your underarm to guide them during treatment. Then, a handheld device will be placed on your underarm as treatment begins. The treatment takes about an hour. Once the treatment is done, you’ll never have to think about underarm sweat again.
Don’t Humans Need to Sweat?
It’s perfectly natural for humans to sweat. It’s even a sign your body is healthy. However, for people who tend to over-sweat, it can be embarrassing to try and hide the sweat. As we stated above, miraDry® deactivates the sweat glands in the underarm. While it may seem like a big deal to completely deactivate sweat glands, the location is nothing to worry about. Where the treatment occurs only holds about two percent of your body’s sweat glands. It’s perfectly safe to deactivate ones that are hyperactive.
How Long Do Results Last?
If you’re looking for a permanent solution to hyperhidrosis, miraDry ® is right for you. For the majority of people, they only need one treatment to achieve sweat and odor-free underarms. However, a small amount of people occasionally need a second treatment. If this is the case, we’ll gladly provide you with a second treatment to give you a confidence boost.
Also, now is the perfect time for miraDry® treatments with Cincinnati Plastic Surgery. We currently have special pricing for one treatment. When you buy one treatment, you’ll pay $1,700 instead of the regularly priced $1,950. And, should you need a second treatment, we offer a substantial discount.
There’s no reason to change your plans because of underarm sweat or odor. With miraDry®, you can gain back confidence an hourlong treatment. Questioning if miraDry® is right for you? Contact the office now.
