Treatment For Excessive Sweating

Everyone sweats while they exercise. Most people sweat when they are in a nervous state. But some people suffer from hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Most cases of excessive sweating are harmless, but some people may be suffering from a thyroid condition, diabetes, infection, or obesity. If your doctor has ruled out medical concerns for your excessive sweating, our dermatologist office is here to help you dry off.

Excessive sweating occurs from overactive sweat glands that try too hard to cool a person down. MiraDry laser treatment is a lasting solution for excessive underarm sweat. The miraDry procedure is a painless, non-invasive procedure that lasts about an hour. MiraDry is known to reduce underarm sweating up to 86% – which can boost a person’s confidence significantly. No more worrying about bringing extra shirts to the next board meeting or business presentation. No more wearing a suit jacket during the middle of summer to hide embarrassing sweat stains. Your dermatologist office canhelp.

MiraDry works by eliminating sweat glands under the arm through a precise electromagnetic energy procedure. Two procedures are typically necessary to maximize the quality and duration of the results. These procedures are usually performed about three months apart and can be done on your lunch break. MiraDry is the only FDA-cleared procedure that is successful in significantly reducing underarm sweat in a non-invasive way. Talk with your dermatologist to determine if your underarm sweating is excessive or not. Your confidence and peace of mind can greatly increase by decreasing the discomfort of your underarm sweat.
