Reduce Hyperhidrosis in New Jersey
Are you bothered by your underarm sweat? Do you frequently apply antiperspirant? Are you frustrated over constantly ruining clothes? Are you worried about underarm sweat outbreaks?
For millions of Americans, excessive underarm sweat (hyperhidrosis) is a daily struggle. It can cause anxiety at work, embarrassment in relationships and social settings, or frustration over having to wear clothes that hide sweat. Excessive sweating can have devastating effect on a person's emotional well-being and self-image.
Now, there is a lasting solution that can make embarrassing sweat a thing of the past. Take control of your life with miraDry®, a noninvasive solution that provides lasting results.
How Does miraDry® Reduce Hyperhidrosis?
miraDry® is a quick procedure that non-invasively eliminates the sweat glands in question. These sweat glands don't grow back once eliminated, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.
There are no surgical incisions or cuts during this procedure. The doctor will customize treatment for each underarm area with multiple placements of the miraDry® handpiece. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms. The handpiece delivers precisely controlled energy to the region where the sweat glands reside and eliminates sweat glands non-invasively.
What Happens After the miraDry® Procedure?
There is minimal to no downtime. A mild, over-the-counter pain medication and the use of ice packs for a day or two after the procedure will treat any pain. There should be no delay in returning to work and normal activities immediately following the procedures, and exercise can usually resume within several days. Some localized soreness or swelling is normal and typically resolves within a few weeks.
What Results Can I Expect from miraDry®?
Most patients report a dramatic reduction of their sweat. A recent clinical study showed an 82 percent reduction in underarm sweat. The reduction in sweat will begin immediately after treatment, and the results are lasting because the sweat glands do not come back or regenerate after they are eliminated. The body contains more than 4 million sweat glands, with only 2 percent located in the underarms, so eliminating this 2 percent will not affect the body’s ability to cool itself.
As with any procedure, results will vary from patient to patient.
