What Causes Excessive Sweating?
Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is a condition where the body produces large amounts of sweat even when the person is at rest and the temperatures are cool. There are two types of hyperhidrosis. Primary hyperhidrosis typically occurs as a result of overactive sweat glands. There is no known medical cause for primary hyperhidrosis.
Secondary hyperhidrosis is typically the result of an underlying medical condition that causes the body to heavily sweat. Secondary hyperhidrosis is typically caused by issues like diabetes, menopause, low blood sugar, nervous system disorder, and thyroid problems.
How Does miraDry Work?
The treatment works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the underarm sweat glands.
Your underarm sweat glands will be eliminated with your miraDry® treatment and the sweat glands will not grow back after treatment, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of embarrassing underarm sweat.
Results can vary by patient however most patients experienced an average of 82% reduction in underarm sweat during clinical studies. Most people noticed a reduction in underarm sweat immediately after a single treatment. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person. Secondary effects include minimal reduction in hair and underarm odor. Ask your miraDry® physician if this procedure is right for you.
While the body does need sweat glands to help regulate temperature and keep cool, the number of sweat glands in the underarms only accounts for around 2% of the total sweat glands in the body.
How Many miraDry Treatment Will I Need?
miraDry can provide excellent results after just a single treatment. However, results can vary from patient to patient based on a variety of factors. On average, miraDry helps to reduce sweating by around 80 to 85% in patients who receive the treatment. Some patients may choose or may need a second treatment in order to reach their desired results. In rare cases of extreme hyperhidrosis, a third treatment may be needed.
