UNDERARM EXCESSIVE SWEATING / BODY ODOUR WITH MIRADRY FRESH
According to International Hyperhidrosis Society, there’s new research that shows nearly 5% of the world’s population suffers from excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis. That’s about 365 million people are struggling with extreme sweating.
Excessive underarm sweating is a common problem faced by many people, especially in Singapore. We have seen patients who share that they are embarrassed to raise their hands in a crowded MRT because their underarms are always sweaty and sticky, resulting in their clothes getting stained and turning yellow.
A good alternative to oral prescriptions, anti-perspirants and injectables, the miraDry Fresh, an FDA-cleared treatment, delivers thermal energy, creating targeted heat in the area where sweat and odour glands reside and safely eliminates them permanently. Once those glands are destroyed in 1 treatment they do not grow back— they are gone for good.
Don’t I need sweat glands?
MiraDry is a safe and effective treatment for excessive underarm sweating. Only 2 percent of the 4 million sweat glands in the human body are found in the underarms, and treating these sweat glands with MiraDry does not affect the body’s ability to cool itself.
Who is suited for this treatment?
Anyone above 18 years old who faces the following problem:
Frequents antiperspirant application and embarrassing underarm sweat breakouts
How does it work?
The area to be treated will be marked and numbed. The MiraDry handpiece is then placed on the area. Once the handpiece is activated, you will feel suction from the vacuum as your skin and sweat glands are brought closer to the surface for maximum results. The thermal energy is delivered and permanently eliminates sweat and odour glands non-invasively. Eliminated sweat glands will not grow back, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat. There is also a cooling system that will be used to minimise any potential discomfort that you may face.
How does the Miradry treatment differ from other available treatments for excessive sweating?
The non-invasive MiraDry treatment is a one-time treatment that results in a noticeable, drastic reduction of underarm sweat without the pain, risk and recovery time.
How long does each treatment take?
Each treatment session is approximately 2 hours including preparation and numbing.
Is there any pain or downtime?
There is minimal to no recovery time. Patients can resume their normal activities on the same day and can resume exercising within the next few days.
Are there any side effects?
Some localized soreness or swelling is normal, and typically clears within a few weeks
What results should I expect?
Patients will see a reduction in sweat immediately after the first treatment, and expect to achieve an average underarm sweat reduction of 82 percent and an average body odour reduction of 93%. As with any aesthetic treatment, results will vary for each patient.
How many treatments will I need?
You will be able to see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, the doctor will determine the best protocol for your desired results.
