Put an End to Underarm Sweat and Odor with miraDry®!

POSTED ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 2016 AT 9:46 AM  by Dr. Jody Levine

Are you tired of worrying about embarrassing underarm stains or odor after a long day? The hustle and bustle of a day-to-day routine can cause you to work up a sweat, as can a few hours at the gym. In addition, stress, anxiety, and nervousness can contribute to excessive sweating. For some, underarm sweating may result in a hesitance to partake in your normal activities or wear your favorite outfits, for fear of revealing unsightly sweat stains underneath. To combat these effects, patients often apply an excessive amount of deodorant under the arms. Unfortunately, too much deodorant can also cause stains, in the form of white, chalky lines on your clothes that may make you even more self-conscious about your look.

For those suffering from underarm sweat, odor, and deodorant stains, there is finally a long-term solution! MiraDry® is the first FDA-approved treatment to put an end to armpit sweat and odor. Patients who opt for miraDry® can eliminate sweat stains under the arms and no longer need to apply deodorant! At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, Drs. Jody and Elie Levine offer miraDry® treatment to provide long-lasting sweat and odor relief.

How Does MiraDry® Work?

MiraDry® reduces armpit sweat and odor by targeting both eccrine glands (sweat-causing glands) and apocrine glands (odor-causing glands). The miraDry® system positions underarm glands closer to the surface of your skin through suctioning. Once in place, miraDry® delivers specialized miraWave™ energy to effectively eliminate odor-causing and sweat-causing glands for long-lasting results. Specialized cooling technology helps soothe the skin during your miraDry® treatment.
