Whether you are the kind of person who tends to sweat a lot or just a little, nothing is more embarrassing than underarm sweat stains and odor. Until recently you had to put up with yellow stains on your white shirts or the chalky mess left behind by deodorants. Today, thanks to Miradry treatments offered by Weiler Plastic Surgery, there is a non-invasive treatment that can reduce or eliminate these problems for a very long time.
How Does Miradry Work?
Dr. Weiler places the Miradry handpiece directly on your underarm so that it can deliver a precisely controlled level of energy directly to the area in which your sweat glands are located. This energy is used to completely eliminate the sweat glands. Unlike traditional surgical methods of removing the sweat glands, Miradry is completely non-invasive and there is no downtime involved. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment.
It will take up to an hour to perform your Miradry treatment and you will probably have to make a second appointment for a follow-up treatment approximately three months after your initial treatment. Before he begins the treatment, Dr. Weiler will apply a small amount of local anesthetic to your underarms to help alleviate any possible discomfort during the treatment.
What Type of Recovery Is There?
Essentially Miradry is a non-invasive procedure, in other words, no surgery of any kind is needed. Dr. Weiler may suggest you take an over the counter pain medication and use ice packs to help reduce swelling over the course of the first few days after each treatment. Beyond this, you should have no problem returning to your normal activities immediately. You may need to wait a few days before resuming any type of strenuous exercise routine due to localized pain and swelling.
You should see a dramatic reduction in sweat production in your underarm areas immediately following the procedure. According to a clinical study conducted by Miramar Labs, Inc. most patients reported an 82% reduction in the amount of sweat produced. Bear in mind that these are average results and yours may differ.
