Is Underarm sweat & Odor taking over?
As a plastic surgeon, I am always on the lookout for new and innovative treatments that can help my patients achieve their cosmetic goals. One such treatment that has been gaining popularity in recent years is MiraDry. This non-invasive procedure is designed to eliminate underarm sweat and odor, and it has proven to be a game-changer for many of my patients.
Here is everything you need to know about MiraDry, from how the procedure works to its benefits and potential side effects. Additionally, I will be sharing my own experience with the treatment, including insights into patient satisfaction and results.
What is MiraDry?
MiraDry uses microwave technology to target and destroy the sweat and odor glands in the underarm area. By eliminating these glands, MiraDry can provide a long-lasting solution to excessive sweating and unpleasant body odor. The procedure is relatively quick and easy, typically taking around one hour to complete.
One of the key benefits of MiraDry is that it is non-invasive, meaning there is no need for incisions or general anesthesia. This makes the procedure much less risky and allows for a quicker recovery time. Additionally, the results of MiraDry are typically long-lasting, with many patients reporting a significant reduction in underarm sweating and odor even after just one treatment.
Any Side Effects?
Of course, as with any medical procedure, there are potential side effects to consider. With MiraDry, the most common side effects include temporary swelling, bruising, and numbness in the treated area. However, these side effects are usually mild and subside within a few days.
Recently, I had the opportunity to undergo MiraDry treatment myself, and I must say, I was extremely impressed with the results. As someone who is familiar with the procedure, I knew what to expect going in, but I was still pleasantly surprised by just how easy the treatment was.
The procedure itself took just under two hours to complete, and I was able to return to work later that same day. The treatment was virtually painless, and I experienced only mild discomfort during the treatment. All very manageable.
Stephanie, our medical aesthetician and certified laser technician, injects a local numbing agent underneath the skin to numb the area entirely prior to starting the treatment. I even used Pro-Nox during the treatment to help with my nerves and relax.
Following the treatment, I experienced some swelling and numbness in the treated area, but these side effects subsided within a few days.
I noticed a significant reduction in underarm sweating and odor, and I felt more confident and comfortable in my day-to-day life. It was truly a game-changer for me, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is struggling with excessive sweating or body odor.
