Sweaty armpits (axillary hyperhidrosis) is a condition that affects one in five people. Until recently, the only way to treat the condition has been with special medications, strong antiperspirants, and botox injections – all of which are short term solutions. If you’re looking for a long-term, permanent solution, however, it may be time to consider miraDry.
MiraDry is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure conducted in the safety of a doctor’s office. It takes only two sessions to enjoy the benefits of permanent removal of excessive sweating. Most miraDry patients experience an 82% reduction of underarm sweating after the second session and results are immediate.
You have the opportunity to end the hassle of managing your life around excessive sweating. A limited number of physicians conduct this advanced treatment, and Dr. Ali Mahtabifard is one of only a few doctors in Los Angeles.
Benefits of miraDry
As an outpatient procedure, miraDry can only be administered by physicians trained in the technique. There is no recovery time following treatment and the results are immediate. Other benefits of miraDry include:
- Permanent results
- Outpatient convenience
- Medically supervised treatment
- Painless, non-invasive technique
miraDry is a localized solution for sweaty armpits only. It does not affect your body’s overall cooling system, and it is not used on other parts of the body.
How Does miraDry Work?
MiraDry is an advanced procedure that uses electromagnetic energy to isolate and reduce sweat glands. Before the procedure starts, the doctor numbs the area around a patient’s armpit then applies the special miraDry handpiece to each armpit. Each session takes approximately one hour with two sessions recommended for effectiveness. The miraDry procedure is customized to accommodate each patient’s personal needs and location of armpit sweat glands.
