What is MiraDry® ?
MiraDry® uses thermal energy that targets and eliminates sweat and odour glands in your underarm. Once these glands are eliminated, they do not grow back. It is the only device (patented) on the market that has the approval of the FDA and Health Canada. You are not alone; there are millions of people in the United States and Canada who suffer from excessive sweat and/or hyperhidrosis. Fortunately, MiraDry® offers a permanent solution.
Miradry® Zones of Use for Hyperhidrosis
Understanding the Causes of Hyperhidrosis
Do you have sweat on your hands, feet or armpits due to heat, stress, anxiety or even sometimes for no particular reason? Does your perspiration last all day and is difficult to control? Do you wonder why this is happening to you?
Sweating is essential for us to function properly. Imagine the consequences if we did not sweat?
We have around 3 million sweat glands in our body and most of them are in sensitive areas such as the hands, feet and armpits.
There are 2 types of sweat glands, eccrine and apocrine. The eccrine glands make up 2/3 of our sweat glands and are located mainly on the hands, feet, back, chest and face. These glands do not produce smelly sweat. They serve to regulate the temperature of our body. Apocrineglands represent 1/3 of our sweat glands. They are located in the armpits, around the nipples and anus. Apocrine sweat is made up of the same elements as eccrine sweat: mineral salts, lactic acid and water but also contains lipids (fat), pheromones, ammonia and urea which causes body odour. Bacteria on our skin break down these elements and make odours worse.
When the glands are very active, they can affect your daily activities, sometimes even disturbing those around you.
The phenomenon of perspiration may be normal and have no underlying cause. When it is aggravated by a health problem or a different phenomenon, it is possible that the perspiration becomes excessive and uncontrollable.
It is normal to sweat during physical activity, when it is hot and in the presence of fever or anxiety. The body must eliminate waste, moisturize and protect its skin from external agents.
When suffering from chronic hyperhidrosis, there is a greater risk of dehydration, as the body can evacuate up to 3L of sweat water each day. Pathologies can appear because of the abundant sweat, such as heat sores, warts, mycoses, eczema and plantar warts on the feet.
Hyperhidrosis Treatment Session In Details
The areas to be treated are first disinfected. Iodine is applied directly to the skin to find the most active areas. It is important to shave your armpits 48 hours before treatment.
One of our clinician nurse will administer local anesthesia to assure confort during the treatment. You may hardly feel anything during the treatment.
A temporary tattoo is used to mark your skin to guide the clinician on the area where MiraDry® will be applied.
Once the MiraDry® system is activated, you will feel a slight suction.
Finally, thermal energy is administered for a certain time which will eliminate eccrine and apocrine sweat glands. During the treatment, a cooling system is used to protect your skin and to ensure optimal comfort.
Follow-Up and Expected Effects
Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for patient comfort. Most patients return to regular activities (such as returning to work) immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days after treatment.
You can expect immediate and lasting results. Once the MiraDry® treatment eliminates the sweat and odour glands, they’re gone for good. The treatment is clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction and 89% odor reduction. As with any aesthetic treatment, patient results and experiences may vary.
