With summer just around the corner there are so many great things to look forward to. Personally, I can’t wait to lounge by the pool by day and firing up the grill at night. From beach vacations to summer festivals, it’s hard to not be excited for this time of the year. One thing many of you may not being looking forward to however is all that sweating that comes with the infamous Georgia heat. Some days, a simple walk out to the mailbox elicits unbearable sweating and unsightly soaked shirts. Now, sweating is a completely healthy and normal function of the body that allows us to remain cool, however, some of us may sweat too much and suffer from what is known as hyperhidrosis. It is estimated that up to 3% of the U.S population suffers from excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis can be brought on by heat, exercise, anxiety and even spicy foods. It can be localized to the underarms or palms of hands or soles of feet, or generalized which affects most or all of the body. Unfortunately, this can be embarrassing and interfere with many daily activities. Luckily, there is a solution for you!
Miradry is FDA cleared and is available to treat underarm hyperhidrosis. It utilizes noninvasive microwave technology to treat the sweat glands within the skin resulting in what is called thermolysis, which means destruction due to heat. Not only is permanent reduction of sweat glands achievable, but it can eliminate underarm hair as well. This means not only does it rid the body of hairs that can hold sweat and bacteria that can cause excessive odor, but also it eliminates the need to take the time to shave or wax the area. Definitely a win-win situation! The ease of the procedure makes it worth it as well. The entire procedure is done in the office and takes approximal one hour. Local anesthesia is used to numb the entire area allowing the procedure to be comfortable. Afterwards, there may be some slight redness and swelling in the area but there is very little downtown and you can resume all normal daily activities shortly thereafter. If you suffer from hyperhidrosis and are ready to enjoy this summer without having to worry about anyone seeing your sweat stains or constantly fret over your body odor, this is the perfect time to consider Miradry. It will leave you feeling clean, confident and carefree which is exactly what you need to enjoy all the wonders that summer brings!
