Case Studies

Emma - Excessive Sweating Case Study

Emma has suffered from Hyperhidrosis since she was 4 years old.  Hyperhidrosis, (excessive sweating that has a dramatic effect on someone's lifestyle) is experienced by over 2% of the UK population, especially in the underarm area - and up to 1 in 5 people are bothered by the amount of sweat produced by their armpits.

In the video below Emma explains how miraDry excessive sweating treatment at MediZen, The Midlands Sweat Smart Centre, has helped reduce the sometimes embarrassing side effects of this condition.

miraDry is unique in that it is currently the only non-invasive treatment for excessive sweating that provides long-term results without regular repeated treatments. After this treatment, Emma has been able to get on with her life without having to worry about which deodorant he has to wear, what clothes to wear or feel nervous about the hot summer months.

UPDATE: We caught up with Emma 12 months after her miraDry treatment to see how the treatment was working for her.

I’m trying miraDry through sheer desperation really. I’m fed up of having this condition and want to get it sorted, hopefully once and for all.

My mum actually told me that I started sweating when I was four, which is quite a young age to discover it and have the problem. As I was growing up with the problem, well, when you’re young it doesn't really affect you, so primary school and things like that.

It’s the teenage years when I found the problem got worse – the sweating got worse. I was self-
conscious and just not myself. I would be paranoid about it. It has really changed and affected what I do and what I wear. It’s always a consideration every day so, which deodorant should I try today, which top should I put on – it would have to be white or black, I can’t go for any light colours, it would always have to be really dark. If I know it’s going to be really warm I’m really conscious of it, or if there’s any dos like weddings or wedding receptions because people are normally in nice dresses and I try and avoid anything nice and pretty because it just gets wet!

The sweating stopped more or less immediately and it’s been absolutely amazing, it has changed my life. I’ve felt more confident, I’ve worn different clothes already - and things that make me stand out more well than white and black and brown!

I feel a happier person. I’m more confident and I’ve been on a first date and didn’t need to be concerned or be worried about it which made me more at ease. It just makes me feel absolutely wonderful. I feel like a different person. I feel like a normal person!

UPDATE 12 MONTHS LATER: Even now I still can’t believe how much the miraDry treatment has changed my life. My underarm sweating has reduced so dramatically.

My confidence has grown knowing that I'm not restricted to wearing the same old clothes because I have to hide a problem. Now I’m able to wear newer and more attractive clothes knowing that they weren't going to be ruined by perspiration marks and the residue of antiperspirants.

I can lift up my arms with confidence, wave to people, hug friends and family safe in the knowledge that no one is going to be alarmed or repulsed at the sight of my damp underarms!
miraDry really has been a miracle for me and changed my social and personal life for the better so perhaps we should rename it 'Miracle' miraDry!’

Mili’s story - how miraDry changed the life of a professional make-up artist

Mili explains how her sweating bothered her and impeded her career as a make up artist.  In the video below Mili explains how miraDry excessive sweating treatment at MediZen, The Midlands Sweat Smart Centre, has helped reduce her sweat.

Working as a make-up artist, my job is to get up close and personal with my clients. It’s sometimes really hard working in an environment where you don’t feel comfortable or confident. I first started noticing my sweat when I started in this industry. Always being close to people and often in high pressured situations, it became clear that I sweated, to both me and my client. Let’s face it, it can’t be nice to see sweat patches on my top if you’re having your make-up done.

So, that was when I started to carry antiperspirant and deodorant round with me to see every client - to make sure I could feel as confident as possible. Even this started to become a pain. Always having to remember to put it in my bag and having to pop out before seeing my client to have a quick spray.

When I heard about the miraDry treatment, it immediately gained my interest. I had no idea that there was something out there which could permanently reduce underarm sweating. I found out where my nearest miraDry centre was - luckily enough, it was local to me.

I thought that this treatment could not only boost my confidence around my clients, but also make me not have to worry about always carrying around my antiperspirant in my bag. The price of the treatment didn’t worry me too much, as I knew it would save me an awful lot of worry and fretting for the rest of my life.

When the day of the procedure came round, it was really easy and simple. There was no pain or discomfort and the nurse made me feel 100% comfortable. It’s always nice to know you’re in good hands. When I got home, there was a little bit of swelling and soreness, but nothing that didn’t stop me from going back to work the next day.

It’s safe to say that after the treatment, I haven’t worried about my underarm sweating since. I don’t have ugly sweat patches, and I’m no longer conscious of being close to people for my profession. I am as confident as ever, all thanks to miraDry.

We asked Mostafa to share his story... 

I am a severe hyperhidrotic person. I can’t remember since when because I have grown up and found myself like that (I think I was born with it already). I am now 35. The 3 affected areas are my hands, feet and the underarms, and the severity level is more or less the same.

I have therefore been living with this nasty condition all my life and the space here is quite limited to explain how negatively it did affect my quality of life throughout the different stages of my life. When I was in the primary school age, I used to use loads of tissues underneath my hands to do the school work and writing activities. However it was not until the secondary school age when I actually started to realise that I am indeed different from other people. When I joined university, I was very embarrassed.

Life was becoming more difficult even on very simple day to day activities, for example, shaking hands, sitting confidently next to other people in a lecture, and getting on with friends was a challenge, etc. I had to use loads of sprays, change t-shirts quite often, and shoes hardly lived with me for a couple of months. To do university work, the tissues were still there. At examination time, however, it was a nightmare. Tissues were not enough. I had to use towels.

After I graduated, I got offered a job straight away as a lecturer.

You can imagine how embarrassing it is standing in front of students with sweat stains underneath your arms. I couldn’t wear any dark shirts, and I loved winter than summer as I used to wear jumpers to hide the stains. Yes – I could actually feel it when doing things which are, to other people, normal activities, for example attending meetings, interviews, lectures, etc. I can actually feel that something inside me was wrong which makes me uncomfortable and anxious, but I couldn’t help it.

In 2009, I got fed up and decided to speak up. So I visited my GP and talked to him about it. He offered me pills and roll on antiperspirant thinking that this might be the cure, but unfortunately nothing happened. So he then referred me to a specialist dermatologist. It was only at this time when I started seeing some light down the tunnel. The dermatologist explained that this is a medical condition called “hyperhidrosis” and that he is aware of it and that it is affecting loads of other people as well and that there are some treatments out there that can help. Really? This thing has got a name? And I am not alone? Treatments? Please tell me more. I even started researching it myself to see what is going on.

To start with, he offered me Botox, only for underarms though, as he said it is quite painful for the hands and feet. The injections were quite painful and it didn’t really last long with me anyway. He then booked me in for surgery where they cut the overactive nerve and stop triggering the sweat glands. But when I looked into its side effects, I got scared and decided against it. Finally, he then introduced the iontophoresis machines to me and explained that the electric current output from these machines can help reduce the sweating. I accepted the offer because I was quite determined to try any kind of treatment as long as it is not touching the nerves. So I started the treatments in the NHS hospital for the three affected areas and it was not until the fourth session when it really started to make a difference. I was very impressed about the results. After I completed the initial program (7 sessions, I think), sweating was significantly reduced. I couldn’t believe it. For the first time in my life I started having some dry hands, feet, and underarms as well; and life started to change.

The only down thing, however, is that I had to regularly keep doing sessions (for me is about once every week) to maintain the dryness. Fortunately, smaller versions of these machines are offered for purchase for home/private use. So I don’t have to go to the hospital every time I need a treatment session. So I bought one and regularly use it at home to help reduce my sweating. Now I cannot live without it. I take it with me everywhere I go, even on holidays. Having been using it for the past few years now already, however, I noticed that the machine I used to use in the hospital was more powerful. This might be because it runs from mains and the one I bought uses only 4xAA batteries, although the supplier is trying to deny this fact by claiming that all the machines deliver the same amount of power, regardless.

Having been made more aware of such a condition, I kept researching it to get more information about any new treatments that might come up. As a result, just recently I got to know about a newly developed machine called “miraDry” for treating the underarm sweating. When I looked into it, I found out that its idea is to burn out (non-invasively) the internal layer of the skin where the sweat glands reside. I quite liked the idea and decided to go for it, again as long as it is not touching the nerves. The clinic explained that usually two treatments are needed (about three months apart) for best permanent results as the sweating might come back if I only have one treatment.

I have now had my first miraDry treatment about two and a half months ago. Apart from the quite stinging local anaesthetic injections at the beginning and the swelling after the treatment, the results were very impressive. My underarms stopped sweating completely straight away after the treatment. I just couldn’t believe it. Straight after the procedure, I deliberately went into situations where I used to sweat a lot (for example meetings, interviews, presentations, etc.) but nothing happened. I did not sweat. A very funny thing, however, is that I had the same feeling that I was sweating, and I actually felt the drops coming down, but when I had a look, there was nothing there. Probably it is something psychological as I am not used to “not sweating” yet.

Although it does not cure the root cause, which is the over active nerve, yet by burning out the sweat glands, the final goal is still achieved, which is stopping the sweating. Hence, it might be interesting to know that I still strongly feel my nervous system is activated, but no sweating from the underarms is happening. Something like switching on the radio with a broken loudspeaker. The sweating, however, only started to come back after about 20 days from the first treatment, and I now cannot wait to have my second treatment done because for me this treatment was really a life changing procedure, although I am still sweating from my hands and feet.

After suffering from excessive sweating for a long time and struggling to see results from treatments, I found the miraDry procedure to be extremely effective. My ultimate goal was to stop my underarms from sweating and I’m so happy to say that I no longer have embarrassing wet spots on my clothes. I would do it all over again in an instant!

The team at Medizen have been so helpful, informative and supportive throughout my treatment for auxiliary hyperhidrosis. They’ve always been on hand to answer questions and I cannot fault the standard of care that I have received. Super happy! Miss J Preston, Leigh-on-Sea
After 50 years of suffering with excessive sweating, this treatment has transformed my life, both professionally and socially. Finally a safe treatment is now offered to sufferers. My thanks to all the team at Medizen. Mr K Smith, Northampton
The MiraDry Laser treatment was very comfortable and not stressful at all My practitioner made me feel at ease and explained the treatment in full. The results after one treatment have already been fantastic. I don’t have to think as much about what I am wearing and I can use normal deodorant rather than medical strength. I’m looking forward to having my second treatment and to see the long term results. Zoe, Rugby
