Lose the Nickname Pete Schweddy!

And, no, your actual name isn’t Pete Schweddy.

But excessive sweating isn’t something you need to live with anymore. Northcoast Laser Cosmetics now has miraDry to solve the problem. Here we’ll answer some questions about the miraDry procedure.

How does miraDry stop the sweat?

MiraDry delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm sweat glands, resulting in thermolysis (decomposition by heat) of the sweat glands. Sweat glands do not grow back, so once they are destroyed sweat will no longer come from those glands.

Will I miss my darling sweat glands?

While you may be tempted to mourn the loss of your sweat glands, your self-confidence won’t miss them for one second! As for not being able to sweat enough, forget it! You have approximately two million sweat glands across your body. Your underarms make up only about 2% of those, so while you won’t gush out the sweat in your pits, you still will sweat enough elsewhere to regulate your body temperature.

What happens during treatment?

You will be reclined for about one hour during the treatment. You won’t feel anything because your underarm areas are treated with local anesthetic before the procedure. Afterwards, you’ll have some minor swelling, soreness, maybe some numbness, but this will pass within a week or two.

How long will it take to stop being Pete Schweddy?

MiraDry results are instant, so you will have an immediate reduction in underarm sweat. You’ll discuss how much sweating you want to preclude during your consultation. Then all you’ll do is notice how little you’re sweating! The average sweat reduction was 82%! Whoa. Holy dry underarms, Batman!

How many treatments do I need?

At Northcoast, we usually recommend two treatments for most patients. The treatments are space three months apart.
