It’s no secret that everybody sweats. It’s your body’s natural way of regulating its temperature. But just because your body is supposed to be sweating doesn’t mean you have to tolerate underarm stains and body odor.
Whether you’re taking a short walk, going on a date or working out, you shouldn’t be embarrassed when you sweat, but when you do, you may feel self-conscious about your body.
Almost everyone experiences excessive sweating at some point or another, which is why there are so many treatments for sweating available. Anti-perspirants, whether they are over-the- counter or prescription, are supposed to stop sweating but are either ineffective or irritating to your skin.
If you want a safe, comfortable and, most importantly, effective treatment for sweating, MiraDry is your answer. A laser treatment that targets sweat glands, you’ll notice a significant reduction in sweat along with any odor that comes along with it.
How Does MiraDry Work?
MiraDry is a laser treatment that uses electromagnetic energy to reach below the skin and treat your individual sweat glands. When you heat the sweat and odor glands, they begin to breakdown and stop sweating or smelling as a result.
Even though your sweat glands are leaving your body, the laser doesn’t harm the surface of your skin. MiraDry provides constant cooling that keeps you comfortable during your entire treatment. You’ll also receive a local anesthetic in your underarm to help relieve any discomfort. Depending on the amount that you sweat, you may benefit from one or two treatments with MiraDry, spaced three months apart. In more severe cases, you may need three treatments. Each session is performed in Dr. Ciaravino’s office, and he can help you decide how many appointments will be beneficial.
Is MiraDry Safe?
MiraDry is extremely safe. Since the underarm sweat glands make up only two percent of the sweat glands in your entire body, there is no effect on the body’s ability to maintain its temperature.
MiraDry also has very few side effects, making it ideal if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to eliminate sweating before summer hits. You may experience some mild swelling and tenderness for a few days after treatment, but otherwise, you can return to your daily routine almost immediately.
Should You Consider MiraDry?
With the Houston summer right around the corner, temperatures are rising, which will increase sweating. Rather than deal with embarrassing sweat stains and body odor, consider a treatment option that will allow you to focus on having fun in the sun!
With MiraDry, you can exercise and hang out in hotter temperatures without any fear of sweating through your clothing. Instead of worrying about whether anyone notices that you’re sweating, you can feel completely comfortable just being you!
