The thought of cozying up by the fire for the holidays should be comforting, not sweat-inducing. Unfortunately, for the roughly 8 million Americans who suffer from hyperhidrosis, excessive underarm sweat can interfere with daily activities, including those that don’t require physical activity.
The good news is that there is now a non-invasive treatment option called miraDry® that can significantly reduce underarm sweat so you can get back to enjoying the things you love to do.
How to Tell If You Might Have Hyperhidrosis
It is normal for our bodies to sweat when we need to cool down, but excessive sweat that interferes with your daily activities could be a sign of a larger problem such as hyperhidrosis. Extremely sweaty palms, for instance, might make activities such as holding a pen or coffee mug uncomfortable or difficult, while excessive underarm sweat might make wearing certain colors or types of clothing uncomfortable.
How Does MiraDry Work to Get Rid of Hyperhidrosis?
MiraDry is one of the most effective non-invasive solutions to excessive underarm sweat. The small, handheld MiraDry device first targets sweat glands in your underarm area and draws them closer to the surface of your skin. There, the device uses heat to disable those targeted sweat glands. Most people see optimal results after two MiraDry treatments.
How Long Does Hyperhidrosis Treatment Last?
Because MiraDry works by disabling targeted sweat glands, this treatment is very long-lasting and can be permanent.
Other hyperhidrosis treatments such as BOTOX will gradually fade away and will need to be regularly maintained.
