How to Reduce Hyperhidrosis

miraDry Plymouth Meeting

Sweating happens as a natural response to feeling too warm. Sweat evaporates and cools the body to keep us from overheating. If you have hyperhidrosis, you sweat too much even when your body does not need to cool off. While people try many ways to treat this excess sweating, only miraDry® offers a permanent solution. 

What is Hyperhidrosis?

If your excessive sweating causes you embarrassment, stains your clothes, or makes you want to avoid social situations, you may have tried almost everything to control it and the odor that comes with it. Hyperhidrosis often resists extra-strength antiperspirants. Treatments such as Botox® can limit excess sweating for some people but only last a few months

How to Reduce Hyperhidrosis

You have a new option for treating your hyperhidrosis. The FDA has cleared miraDry® to reduce sweat and resulting odor in the underarm area. This treatment damages the overactive sweat glands, stopping them from producing sweat. As a result of the decreased sweat, fewer bacteria develop in the underarm area, causing less odor. Most people see results with just one miraDry® treatment. 

How Does miraDry® Work to Reduce Hyperhidrosis?

A handheld applicator is used to administer miraDry® to the underarm area. We will apply numbing cream to keep you comfortable during treatment. This treatment produces micro-waves that target and permanently deactivate sweat glands. One treatment can decrease sweat by over 80%, and almost 90% of those treated find that odor no longer bothers them

Benefits of miraDry®

People love miraDry® for a variety of reasons. After many years of struggling with hyperhidrosis, the option of a long-lasting treatment with significant results sounds almost too good to be true. With miraDry®, benefits include:

If you struggle with problems related to excessive underarm sweating, you might make a good miraDry® candidate. If you find that you sweat even in cool areas, you sweat through your clothes, or your excessive sweat causes an uncomfortable odor, miraDry® can give you long-lasting relief.
