Hyperhidrosis - miraDry
What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating, is a condition which may cause great emotional distress and compromise a person’s working and social life. This condition can occur in any area of the body but the most commonly affected areas are under the arms, the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet.
Excessive sweating can be caused by some neurologic, hormonal or metabolic diseases , however, most individuals that suffer from excessive sweating tend to be perfectly healthy. Although high temperature, stress, anxiety and exercising will naturally trigger the sweat glands, people that suffer from hyperhidrosis are sweating regardless of all those factors.
The miraDry System uses thermal energy that targets and eliminates the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are eliminated, they do not grow back.
The treatments lasts 2 hours approximately. Local anesthetic will be applied to the area. There is almost no downtime after the treatment, we only recommend to avoid exercise for 72 hours.
