Get Rid of that OMG Moment: How Miradry Eliminates Underarm Sweat and Odor!

Sweat can affect our daily lives at any time of the day, especially as summer is rolling in with its waves of heat. Sweat does not only smell awful, but it stains your clothes and leads to “OMG” moments no one looks forward to. However, for all the people who wish to get rid of intensive sweating, The MiraDry device can help you!

Why Do I Sweat So Much from My Armpits?

Before you can learn why people sweat abundantly, you first have to know why people sweat in the first place.  Sweating is a perfectly natural process in which the body releases liquids through the sweat glands, keeping the body cool. Sweating occurs more frequently when the temperature is high or someone is working out. Emotions, such as anger, embarrassment, fear, and nervousness, are well-known to increase sweat production as well.

Some people experience hyperhidrosis, a medical condition that leads to excessive and unpredictable sweating. When dealing with hyperhidrosis, sweating may occur even if the temperature is low or the person is resting. Hyperhidrosis can occur without any triggers.

The only cause of developing this medical condition is hyperactive sweat glands. Excessive sweating affects your hands, feet, and armpits, which can take a toll on your physical and emotional health. In addition, there is a higher chance of developing this condition if other members of your family also experience it.

Other medical conditions that increase the body’s sweat production are:

● Anxiety conditions;

● Lung diseases;

● Menopause;

● Strokes;

● Infections;

● Substance abuse;

● Glucose control disorders;

● Cancer;

● Heart disease.

Who is More Likely to Experience Underarm Sweat and Odor?

The odor you feel when sweating is a reaction between the bacteria on your skin and your sweat. You may have noticed that the odor is not the same because it can change due to hormones, diet, medication, or medical conditions you may be dealing with.

Our bodies have two glands that produce sweat: the eccrine and apocrine glands.  The eccrine glands cover most of your body and are responsible for cooling it down when reaching high temperatures due to effort or the environment surrounding you. These glands do not produce any smell. The apocrine glands are responsible for the odor you feel when sweating, as they open up into the hair found in the armpit and pubic area and produce an odor when coming in contact with bacteria.

The apocrine glands only come into function when going through puberty, which is why you don’t notice the odor in children.

Because of the apocrine glands, men are more likely to experience problems with body odor as they have more hair in the armpit area. This does not mean women can not have the same problems. As you let your armpit hair grow, the body odor increases.

What is the MiraDry Treatment?

Luckily, one of the devices we promote here at Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center can help you say goodbye to those OMG moments and recover your confidence and self-esteem: MiraDry ! The MiraDry treatment is a one-time procedure that completely removes the armpit hair, sweat, and odor. MiraDry has been named a revolutionary procedure, not only by doctors and professionals but also by patients! The treatment results are long-lasting, non-invasive, and reported to improve the lives of men and women worldwide!

MiraDry targets the armpit eccrine glands, apocrine glands, and armpit hair, eliminating them using electromagnetic energy. Since the procedure is non-invasive, MiraDry protects the skin’s surface while the sweat glands decompose from the device’s heat.

The treatment is quick, almost painless, and efficient. If your primary concern is the pain, you shouldn’t have any concerns—your armpit will be under local anesthesia during the procedure. The results are immediate, and you can start enjoying life without shaving, sweating, or unpleasant odor the second you leave our office!

Is MiraDry Recommended for Hyperhidrosis?

MiraDry is perfect for combating hyperhidrosis , as patients with excessive sweating are often referred to us for treatment. It’s safe to say that the MiraDry treatment is the best choice if you want to escape hyperhidrosis!

Who is the Ideal MiraDry Candidate?

If you do not have problems with excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, that does not mean you cannot undergo the MiraDry treatment. Anyone who wishes to have a sweat, odor, and shave-free life can consider MiraDry! But before you make an appointment, you first have to consult a specialist. Call in for an appointment at Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center with Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Phillip Chang to find out whether MiraDry is the ideal treatment for you!

What about MiraDry Recovery?

The MiraDry treatment recovery is as easy as the procedure itself! You will have to apply ice to the treatment area for a few days to help reduce redness and swelling. Also, Dr. Chang will recommend taking ibuprofen for minor pain relief. The entire recovery process takes around two weeks, around two after which you’ll be free to enjoy your stunning results!

Is MiraDry Permanent?

Yes! The MiraDry treatment is a permanent, nonsurgical procedure that will take your life to the next level: no more odor, excessive sweating, or shaving! But don’t expect your body to be 100% sweat-free. You will still sweat through your eccrine glands, which, however, do not produce any odor, as their only responsibility is to keep your body cool.

How Much Does MiraDry Cost?

The price of a MiraDry treatment plan may vary depending on the county where you will have the procedure, the size of the area treated, and the clinic. You can expect the price to be anywhere between $2,000 and $3,000 . Be sure to schedule a consultation at Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center for a more accurate price quote!
