What is miraDry underarm sweat treatment?

miraDry Sweat TreatmentIt’s common knowledge that our bodies produce sweat to help cool the body when we’re hot, on a hot summer’s day, or after exercise. But whilst it’s normal for the amount of sweat produced to vary from person to person, some people’s glands can produce four or five times more than what is normally required to cool the body, sometimes even when they’re resting.

If you’re one of the estimated 1 million people in the UK who experience excessive sweating caused by overactive sweat glands, you’ll know the kind of interference this condition can make to everyday life, such as the necessity of changing clothes several times daily, and the concern and embarrassment of playing sports or even walking.

You’ll be happy to know that miraDry, the latest, non-invasive treatment to solve underarm sweating, is available at our clinic in Sutton Coldfield.

miraDry is a safe, clinically proven and FDA-cleared procedure that significantly reduces underarm sweat by up to 82%. It’s quick, non-invasive and works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the region where the underarm sweat glands reside, using the miraDry handpiece. This hour-long treatment heats the sweat glands and eliminates them for good.

miraDry delivers precisely controlled energy to eliminate underarm sweatglands.

Many people ask whether disabling the sweat glands in the armpits will affect their body’s ability to cool itself. In fact, these glands make up just 2% of all sweat glands around the whole body, so this will not have any negative affect in this way.

miraDry is the only long-lasting solution to underarm sweating that doesn’t have the inherent risks involved with surgical treatments. There is also no need to have continuous treatments, unlike temporary solutions such as antiperspirants and toxins. However, it currently only works for the underarm area, so we have other excessive sweat treatments such as Botox, which our medical director, Dr. Eccleston, specialises in performing for a variety of sweat concerns.

If you answer yes to any of the following, the miraDry procedure may be right for you:

Your miraDry underarm Sweat Treatment Experience 

Before Treatment  

Before your miraDry treatment you will be invited to MediZen for a full free consultation to discuss you needs and see if miraDry is the best solution for you.

During Treatment 

Your MediZen practitioner customises the treatment for each underarm, based on where your sweat glands reside. The underarms are numbed using a local anaesthetic prior to the procedure to ensure the comfortable treatment possible. Your practitioner then holds the miraDry handpiece up to the underarms, which delivers energy to the sweat glands.

You might feel some pressure, sensations of warmth and light pulling on the skin, but relatively little discomfort or pain aside from an occasional ‘hot spot’. On average, patients describe the discomfort as a 2 out of 10 (10 being the most uncomfortable).

After Treatment 

After the miraDry procedure you can expect minimal or no downtime once your miraDry treatment is completed. We usually recommend a mild over-the-counter pain medication and the use of ice packs for a few days. You should be able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure, and you can usually resume exercise within several days.

miraDry underarm sweat treatment Side Effects

The miraDry procedure side effects tend to be some localised soreness or swelling, which typically clears within a few weeks. Some patients have temporary, short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears. You should talk with your miraDry practitioner about any potential side effects.

Is miraDry excessive sweat treatment suitable for me? 

If you find underarm sweat embarrasses you or interferes with your daily activities, and that reasonable application of antiperspirant doesn’t solve the problem of noticeable sweat stains or odour, then miraDry could be the right solution for you.

Give us a call on 0121 667 5703 to have an informal chat, and book a free consultation to see if miraDry is the best option for your individual needs.
