Don’t Sweat It… there’s a treatment for that

Standard

I think everyone has been there: their deodorant has failed at some point, only to realize it sometime later in the day. You think, ‘Uh-oh, did anyone else notice?’

Probably just about everyone has also ruined a favorite white top over time because of the yellow stains that form in the underarm area. Then there’s the lovely ‘nervous sweat’: Your body might instinctively think that you’re running from a threat in that pre-historic fight-or-flight way, but you’re really just trying to give a presentation at the office or a maid-of-honor speech.

Then there’s actual hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes sweat glands to go into an overactive state. According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society, about 3% of the world’s population have hyperhidrosis. That’s about 211 million people! People with hyperhidrosis will often suffer from such excessive sweating that they must change clothing multiple times in a day, and even sweat through suit jackets. This can be terribly hard in social or work situations.

For people with hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating can effect your daily life. But I think for people who are simply ‘sweat-bothered’, sweat can also be a huge hassle on a daily basis, too.

Sweat: in a lot of ways, it can be embarrassing for everyone.  In our office, we treat underarm sweating with the miraDry procedure.

MiraDry is a procedure that selectively heats the sweat glands in the underarms. This damages the overactive glands, and they do not regenerate. The result is dramatic and lasting sweat reduction. MiraDry is great for people with hyperhidrosis and those who are just sweat-bothered, too.  As an added bonus, miraDry also treats the apocrine glands. Those are the ones that cause the odor and the yellow stains… buh-bye, antiperspirant, deodorant AND stained T-shirts! Hello, miraDry!
