Do You Suffer from Excessive Sweating? miraDry® Can Help
Excessive sweating can be a debilitating condition—especially in our South Florida climate. It can affect all aspects of your life, from everyday tasks to your personal relationships. It can ruin your clothes and your self-confidence, but you don’t have to live with persistent perspiration anymore. Do something about it with miraDry® at Sanctuary Medical Center.
What Is Hyperhidrosis?
Sweating is a natural and necessary human function that regulates body temperature. Unfortunately, many people don’t only sweat when they’re hot or nervous. Those individuals may suffer from hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, which happens when a person perspires more than necessary. This condition usually affects the underarms, palms, and head, but it can occur anywhere on the body. It’s estimated that millions of Americans suffer from hyperhidrosis, but it’s hard to truly know how many people have it since most individuals who sweat excessively never see a doctor due to embarrassment, or because they aren’t aware that it can be treated.
What Causes Hyperhidrosis?
Unfortunately, the cause of excessive sweating is still unknown. Research indicates that hyperhidrosis might be caused by overactive nerves that control the sweat glands. There’s also evidence that excessive sweating is genetic, since most patients report having a relative who experiences similar symptoms. Otherwise, an unrelated medical condition or certain medicines and supplements may be causing your body to produce more perspiration than usual.
Treat Hyperhidrosis with miraDry
What can you do about all that embarrassing sweat and odor? Fortunately, there is a permanent solution to your perspiration problems. miraDry is an easy, non-surgical way to eliminate the cause of excessive sweating for good. This innovative technology targets the sweat and odor glands that are responsible for all the uncontrollable moisture that your body produces. It does this by delivering bursts of focused electromagnetic energy safely through the skin and destroying only the specific glands that cause you to over-perspire.
The miraDry Procedure
During treatment, the targeted area will be marked with a specialized template, and one of our doctors will apply a numbing cream to ensure a comfortable experience. The miraDry handpiece is placed on the skin precisely over the template and then is activated. The skin is gently suctioned up to the handpiece to bring the sweat glands closer to the surface, and the energy is delivered into the skin, safely wiping out the problem sweat and odor glands while leaving the surrounding tissues intact.
Life After miraDry
Dealing with excessive sweating doesn’t have to be a lifestyle. After one or more sessions with miraDry, you can forget about constantly dealing with sweaty pits, palms, or brows, and start living your best life, because you’ll notice a significant improvement in your perspiration levels right away. There’s no need to play the waiting game, as once the targeted sweat glands have been destroyed, your body will no longer produce sweat from that particular area. You can say goodbye to carrying around a personal “sweat towel,” keeping a change of clothes with you everywhere you go, or always worrying that you’re going to give off an offending odor.
