If you suffer from excessive underarm sweating, you may feel exhausted by the hunt for something that helps get rid of – or even minimizes – your sweating issue. If that’s the case, then it’s time to introduce yourself to miraDry, an FDA-approved device that uses microwave energy to target and remove the overactive sweat glands that are causing your excessive sweating. miraDry treatments are now available at The Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery in Plymouth Meeting, PA.
Am I a Good Candidate for miraDry?
You’re a good candidate for miraDry if you suffer from excessive sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis). Your sweating should be such a problem that you change your shirt several times a day and have found no relief from over-the-counter or even prescription deodorants. While multiple sites on the body may be an issue, miraDry is best performed on sweat glands within the armpit region.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
The treatment takes about an hour to perform, making it an excellent procedure for patients who are looking for a quick yet highly effective way to get rid of excessive sweating problems. The treatment is performed after the area is locally anesthetized. For most patients, there is also the side benefit of long-lasting reduction of hair and odor glands in the area that was treated.
What Results Will I See?*
Results are instant and long-lasting – really!
Is There Any Downtime?
Though moderate swelling is normal, here is no significant downtime or recovery period associated with a miraDry procedure, so you can continue with your normal routine (but this time, a lot less sweaty!).
