Excessive Underarm Sweating? End It with miraDry!
- Posted on: Jan 15 2016
If you’re old enough, you may remember the Albert Brooks character in the movie Broadcast News. When he finally got a chance to become anchor he sweated so intensely that his chance was ruined. If this is something you can relate to, we have the solution at Northcoast Laser Cosmetics — miraDry.
What is miraDry?
MiraDry is the only non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment to permanently eliminate sweat and odor glands in the underarm area. Using microwave technology to heat the glands, stopping their function, miraDry is a safe, fast, permanent solution.
The procedure has been given over 45,000 times worldwide, so there is a growing amount of statistical evidence behind miraDry. This new technology has been shown to eliminate 82% of sweat and odor glands in just one treatment. This reduction is permanent.
Although not the original intention, miraDry also removes up to 70% of underarm hair as the heat damages the hair follicles. So, in addition to saying goodbye to your army of deodorants and antiperspirants, Northcoast female patients can now say goodbye to the majority of their underarm shaving!
Will removing sweat glands make it impossible to cool off?
The human body has from 2 to 4 million sweat glands across its entire surface. Only 2% of these are located in the underarm area. So, when these glands are eliminated with miraDry, the body’s overall ability to cool itself or to eliminate toxins is not impacted.
We first numb the underarms of the patient. Then we draw a temporary tattoo of sorts on your underarm to provide a treatment map. Next we place the hand held applicator to your skin and there is a slight suction. Each side takes around 30 minutes and you’re done.
