Now that the summer months are here, you may notice how much you currently sweat. You may want to enjoy the summer months, but don’t want to think about the sweat that goes along with it. At Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, we understand that. That’s why we offer different services to help curb that. We offer miraDry, a new piece of technology that reduces underarm sweat in the vast majority of people. Below, learn how miraDry works and some of the added bonuses.
Less Underarm Sweat
Are you tired of having to wear dark clothing to hide underarm sweating? Do you feel like you sweat more than the average person? If either of those describe you, you may have a condition called hyperhidrosis. Overall, hyperhidrosis means you sweat more than the average person. That’s where miraDry treatments help. With a 30 minute treatment session, you’ll notice a major reduction in underarm sweat on a permanent basis.
To start, we map your underarm and place the applicator there. We apply the applicator to the mapped areas, and a specific type of heat works to deactivate the sweat glands in your underarms. If the thought of deactivating your underarms makes you nervous, know that, compared to the rest of your body, your underarms hold little of your body’s sweat glands.
Less Need to Shave
Not only does miraDry provide less underarm sweat, it also may reduce the need to shave your underarms. During the deactivation process, the heating process reduces the hair follicles’ ability to grow. This means you also save money in the long haul because you won’t need to spend money on razors or waxing.
Additionally, because of the reduction of underarm sweating, you’ll also notice less underarm odor. Because you sweat less and have less underarm hair to hold on to the odor, there won’t be as much of an odor.
Other Ways to Stop Underarm Sweat
If the thought of permanently deactivating your underarm sweat glands makes you uncomfortable, you still have other options. One of the more common types of temporarily reducing underarm sweat is through Botox injections.
In its general use, Botox relaxes the overworked muscles in your face, creating a smoother appearance. When injected into your underarms, it temporarily stops the sweat glands from working. For the average person, you won’t notice underarm sweat for about five months, though each person is different and individual results may vary. Again, injecting small amounts of Botox into your underarms temporarily stops excessive sweating. If you’re looking for a permanent solution, miraDry is the best way to go. At this moment, to treat excessive sweating, Botox is only FDA-approved to be injected into the underarms. However, this approval does not affect the approval as a wrinkle eliminator.
Say goodbye to underarm sweat for good with miraDry. Through miraDry, you reduce the amount of underarm sweat with just one treatment. At Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, we provide different ways for you to look and feel your best. Whether it’s surgical, non-surgical, or dermal fillers, we have ways to help you.
