What is MiraDry?
MiraDry is a non-invasive, FDA approved procedure for treating excessive underarm sweat. The process works to destroy the sweat and odor glands under the arms, helping to resolve underarm sweat problems . Many patients ask about the dangers of removing the sweat and odor glands. Luckily, your entire body has these glands, with only 2 percent of them located under the arms. Usually, patients do not suffer any negative effects from neutralizing the small percentage of your body’s sweat and odor glands. In many cases, MiraDry can also help to remove hair from the treated areas. It is Dr. Birely's goal to deliver to his patients some of the best MiraDry Maryland & Baltimore have to offer; come experience relief from excessive sweating with Artistry in Plastic Surgery.
Should I Try MiraDry?
Some people just “run hot,” and sweat profusely. If you feel that excessive underarm sweat (and odor) is having a negative impact on your life, you are probably a candidate for this treatment. Typically, MiraDry could be the answer if you suffer from any of the following conditions:
- You suffer from axillary hyperhidrosis
- You need to change your clothing often due to excess underarm sweat
- Antiperspirants do not resolve the issue
How Does the Procedure Work?
The treatment involves the use of a non-invasive, hand-held device that sends electromagnetic energy to the area below the skin’s surface. The treatment device directs the energy specifically to the area where the sweat and odor glands are located, destroying the glands – they are no longer functional, and will not grow back. Every person is different, and you may need more than one treatment to achieve the result you want -- but even a first treatment will reduce the amount of sweat and odor your body produces. Your underarm area will be numbed prior to the procedure, so no pain is involved. As one of the few providers of MiraDry in Maryland & Baltimore, Dr. Birely understands the importance of this procedure for patients who suffer from excessive sweat.
Most people who have the MiraDry treatment can return to work the same day. You can get back to more vigorous exercise and strenuous activities within a couple of days. If you experience a great deal of swelling, resting with ice packs beneath the arms is helpful.
Advanced Procedure for Neutralizing Sweat and Odor Glands in the Underarms
People who suffer from excess sweat in the underarm area had fewer options in the past, and it typically required surgical intervention -- usually at high cost. MiraDry brings new hope for those who suffer from excess sweat, or choose to reduce underarm sweat and odor for any reason. If your underarms produce an excess amount of sweat, it can be embarrassing, and make life difficult. You may use the strongest antiperspirant, wear layers of clothing to soak up sweat, or other solutions you have come up with over the years.
