Is MiraDry Safe?
Don’t let excessive armpit sweat keep you from attending social gatherings or wearing your favorite tops. With miraDry®, you can effectively and permanently eliminate unwanted underarm sweat once and for all. If being free from the embarrassment, discomfort and worry caused by underarm perspiration is on your to-do list, come see Dr. Ciaravino for a miraDry treatment today.
About the Procedure
If you have been on the lookout for a solution to your unwanted underarm sweat, miraDry is calling your name. Deodorant and other antiperspirant methods only work as a cover-up to mask the sweat and smell—but miraDry actually gets to the root of the problem.
When you come in for a miraDry treatment, Dr. Ciaravino will use a handheld applicator to emit thermal energy to your underarms. This energy targets and destroys both the sweat and odor glands, eliminating both the perspiration and smell from your armpits—now that’s a package deal!
When to Receive MiraDry
Sweating is a normal function of the human body, but it shouldn’t be an everyday occurrence. Since perspiring is your body’s way of cooling itself down, exercise and high temperatures should be two of the only times you really sweat.
If you are sick of trying brand after brand of deodorant, only to realize nothing stops your pits from sweating or smelling—it’s time to take action.
