Have you ever worried about underarm stains from sweating? Have you ever been self-conscious about the amount of your underarm sweat? Do you frequently worry about your underarm odor? Do you change out your shirts, place napkins under your arms or wear dark clothing to hide underarm sweats?
If you answered yes to these questions, you may have hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition where you experience excessive sweating even when you are not hot or physically active. According to WebMD, an estimated 2%-3% of Americans suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms. Kayal Dermatology is here to assist you if you think you are experiencing excessive sweating.
Kayal Dermatology uses miraDry technology to combat excessive underarm sweats. miraDry uses thermal energy to create heat where your sweat and odor glands are in the underarm. miraDry is a non-invasive, FDA-approved procedure done in the dermatologist office. A local anesthetic is applied to the underarm area prior to the treatment for patient comfort. A non-invasive device delivers controlled thermal energy beneath the skin to the area where the sweat glands are located while at the same time the top layers of skin are cooled and protected. The whole procedure typically takes about an hour.
There could be some soreness or swelling at the treated area but total downtime is minimal and normal activity can resume same day as the procedure. miraDry can reduce odor and wetness by about 80% after one or two treatments. Besides treating odor and wetness, another added benefit of the miraDry treatment is that it may eliminate underarm hair. That means added time to enjoy those lazy summer days! Kayal Dermatology will help determine the set number of treatments based on each individual.
If you want to raise your arms like you just don’t care and are in Marietta or the surrounding areas, then call Kayal Dermatology today for your miraDry consultation and gain your confidence back!
