Sweat Treatments

 

Laser Esthetica is proud to offer a new revolutionary program to truly rid their patients of excessive sweating in the underarms.

With miraDry®, you can forget about using harsh chemicals, toxins or surgery to prevent the embarrassment of sweating in the underarm. miraDry is an FDA-approved system that delivers precisely controlled energy to the sweat glands, eliminating them non-invasively. Because the sweat glands do not come back or regenerate after treatment, the results are lasting. You can expect to see sweat reduction immediately after treatment with minimal to no downtime. An added benefit of the miraDry procedure is hair removal. In fact, miraDry is FDA-approved for permanent reduction of hair of all colors. Note, this procedure is not as effective for hair removal as traditional laser hair removal methods. However, it is an added benefit for patients who primarily choose miraDry to eliminate sweat.

Do you experience sweaty palms and feet? Botox has proven helpful for suppressing sweat for the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. And, Botox, at one point, was a treatment for underarm sweating. No longer, as the miraDry procedure is now recommended.

All procedures performed at Laser Esthetica are completed by experienced technicians. Our staff is committed to providing each patient with a safe and comfortable environment.

How Does It Work?

Once it is decided that you are a proper candidate for miraDry®, you will be scheduled for treatment. The underarm will be marked with an ink grid, then anesthetized using local anesthetic. The miraDry® handpiece is placed on multiple spots on the axilla to target the sweat glands to achieve decreased sweating. For optimal results, most patients require two treatments, spaced three months apart. The procedure takes about one to one-and-a-half hours.

Don’t I Need My Underarm Sweat Glands?

Your body contains over 4 million sweat glands, with only about 2 percent of them located in the underarms. Your body will still be able to properly cool itself even after eliminating this 2 percent.

What Results Can I Expect?

The majority of our patients report a dramatic sweat reduction – up to 82 percent with two treatments! The results are immediate, and long lasting.
