Can I Stop Underarm Sweat Without Surgery?
There are a few options currently available to individuals who wish to minimize excessive underarm sweat, but not many are able to successfully address this potentially embarrassing issue without repeated treatment or invasive methods. However, miraDry® offers patients a non-surgical and lasting way to reduce or eliminate underarm sweat with as little as one treatment.
Unlike antiperspirants that contain harsh chemicals and need to be applied multiple times throughout the day or minimally invasive treatments like BOTOX® injections that only offer temporary sweat reduction, miraDry uses patented miraWave™ technology to give patients long-lasting relief from excessive underarm sweat. Some other key benefits of miraDry include:
- Treatment can be completed in our office quickly and comfortably
- It is considered to be safe and effective for reducing underarm sweat by 82%, on average
- After sweat glands have been destroyed, retreatment shouldn’t be necessary
- Results can often be seen immediately
- Can also reduce underarm odor and hair
- miraDry is non-invasive and does not require surgical incisions
- Little to no recovery time needed
If you wish to significantly reduce sweat in the armpit area (as well as minimize odor and hair), miraDry can provide lasting results through non-surgical sweat gland destruction. To find out if you are a candidate for this innovative procedure, please contact our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jerome Liu, Dr. Tom Liu, or one of our trained nurse practitioners.
