With miraDry, you can finally get rid of your sweaty underarms and still feel confident, comfortable, and like yourself at work, with friends, and in your everyday life. Here’s everything you need to know about this revolutionary treatment!
Be Sweat Free
MiraDry uses electromagnetic energy to eliminate sweat glands in armpits, leaving you with dry skin. Sweating can lead to stains and odors and affect people who perform physical activity, so it’s essential to take care of sweaty body parts. Most people choose miraDry for cosmetic reasons, as sweating can be embarrassing. MiraDry also prevents yellowing on your skin caused by excess moisture.
Sweating is a natural process that our bodies use to cool down, but excessive sweating can be uncomfortable and embarrassing.
MiraDry is perfect for those who sweat excessively and are bothered by their body odor, clothing stains, and the social stigma of excessive sweating. If you’re struggling with hyperhidrosis — the medical term for excessive sweating — our team can give you an honest opinion about whether or not miraDry is right for you. The first step to stopping sweat in its tracks!
Keep shirts dry and stain-free
When considering a treatment such as miraDry, it is crucial to understand that there are multiple steps to achieve great results. Prior to your procedure for miraDry Atlanta Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Kerolus will perform a test patch on one of your armpits to determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for vaporization of sweat glands. If so, then we will help you decide how many sessions you need and how soon they should be performed. Next, anesthesia is administered to numb your underarm area and begin the process of destroying sweat glands. The procedure takes about an hour and doesn’t require any stitches or bandages; however, most patients experience some tenderness and swelling in their underarms after the procedure which can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks, depending on the severity.
Stop using antiperspirants
There is typically minimal downtime following your miraDry procedure. Some Atlanta miraDry patients have reported experiencing tightness, tenderness, and minor discomfort in their underarms for a few days after their treatment. But most patients return to work within a day or two of their treatment. You should generally expect no more than two weeks of downtime before returning to normal daily activities.
Turn up the heat
Sweating is a natural process that prepares us for physical activity. Unfortunately, excessive sweating makes simple tasks uncomfortable and difficult. While topical treatments such as antiperspirants can manage sweat-related problems, they don’t stop excess sweating entirely and can harm our health. We offer advanced treatment options like miraDry to eliminate hyperhidrosis forever.
Sweating is a natural part of human body function, but it can be inconvenient or even debilitating for many people. Thanks to today’s innovative technology, you no longer have to live with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and its attendant problems. MiraDry is an effective procedure that eliminates wetness by permanently reducing excessive sweat production—but it’s no more invasive than your next Botox treatment! We know how insufferable the Atlanta summers can be when you sweat excessively. So schedule your miraDry consultation today.
After miraDry, your sweat glands may purge and emit an odor for a few days to approximately two weeks. This does not imply that the procedure was ineffective; it will be resolved! If this occurs, you can resume using deodorant or antiperspirant.
The miraDry technique is non-invasive and rapid. The miraDry System provides precisely controlled thermal energy to the location of the underarm sweat glands, eliminating them non-invasively. The effects are permanent because sweat glands do not regenerate after therapy.
Taking care of yourself is about more than just annual check-ups and eating right. You also want to preserve your ability to look and feel your best. If you feel like you have an area that you want to improve through plastic surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Kerolus. She will make sure you find the right treatment for your best results.
