Whether you’re regularly placed in stressful situations that cause you to perspire, or you suffer from random, uncontrolled outbreaks of perspiration, excessive sweating can be embarrassing and can have a major impact on your life.
In previous years, people have successfully managed problem sweat with temporary non-surgical methods such as botulinum toxin injections and iontophoresis. While these treatments are effective, they produce short-lived results, and this means spending time and money topping up the effects.
Thankfully, there is now a non-invasive way to permanently stop problem sweat. miraDry® is a safe, clinically proven, FDA-cleared solution for significantly reducing underarm sweat permanently.
What is miraDry®?
miraDry® works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the underarm sweat glands. It is a quick procedure that doesn't involve any surgical incisions or cuts, meaning there is minimal downtime.
The biggest benefit of opting for miraDry® is that it is the only permanent procedure that doesn’t involve surgery. The results are immediate and the downtime really is minimal. Plus, not only does it reduce underarm sweat, it also works well for reducing odour and hair.
All patients will experience common side effects including swelling, soreness and altered sensation in or around the underarm. These are temporary and shouldn’t last long. If advice is followed, downtime will be minimal and you can head straight back to the office with ice and pain relief. Your practitioner will provide aftercare advice designed to minimise risk and promote speedy recovery from any other side effects.
Cost and Availability
miraDry® is available at carefully selected clinics around the UK. It typically costs approximately £2,800 for two treatments (although some people get good control after just one treatment for £1495). The two treatments will usually be carried out three months apart for best results.
Emma suffered from excessive sweating since she was just 4 years old. She recently had the miraDry® treatment at the MediZen Sweat Smart Centre in the West Midlands, and got in touch to tell us how it has changed her life for the better.
“Since having miraDry®, I don’t need to change my top at all in the day. I don’t need to take extra clothes, extra deodorant… I haven’t got to worry about sweating in the day. It’s been quite remarkable.”
