Stay Deodorant Free! Stop Underarm Sweat and Odor with miraDry®

POSTED ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2015 AT 10:34 AM  by Dr. Jody Levine

Is unsightly sweat keeping you from enjoying your favorite clothing or social gatherings with confidence? Underarm sweating can result in embarrassing wetness and odor, as well as rashes or irritation. Additionally, for many, combating sweating with deodorant may leave white antiperspirant stains on clothes, impacting self-esteem. Patients may be hesitant to wear their favorite outfits for fear of unattractive stains caused by both underarm sweat and excessive use of deodorant. Moreover, excessive sweating can result in unwanted stress, leading to further perspiration.

However, did you know there is a long-term solution to underarm sweating? Introducing miraDry®: the first FDA-approved treatment to eliminate the burdensome effects of armpit sweating, as well as the need for deodorant. Here at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, our New York dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, is proud to offer this non-surgical procedure for those looking to say goodbye to underarm sweat and antiperspirant.

How MiraDry® Works:

MiraDry® is specially designed to eliminate excess sweat glands under the arms that cause perspiration. The miraDry® system uses focused miraWave™ energy to gradually destroy sweat glands during treatment. First, the miraDry® hand-piece is applied to the skin and uses suctioning to position perspiration glands closer to the skin’s surface. Once sweat glands are optimally positioned, the miraDry® system sends waves of concentrated energy to the armpit area, while simultaneously providing a cooling sensation to minimize pain or discomfort. As sweat glands are exposed to the miraWave™ energy, they are gradually eliminated.

Why Undergo MiraDry® Treatment?

MiraDry® can effectively destroy both eccrine glands (perspiration-causing glands) and apocrine glands (odor-causing glands)—making miraDry® an ideal procedure for patients suffering from sweat stains and/or odor. After undergoing miraDry® treatment, patients no longer need to apply deodorant! Additionally, miraDry® can remove troublesome armpit hair, as hair follicles are also targeted during the procedure.

How Long Does MiraDry® Last?

MiraDry® is shown to provide long-lasting sweat relief because excess sweat glands are permanently removed during the procedure. However, individual results vary by patient. Dr. Levine will discuss your specific goals to create an ideal treatment schedule that will yield optimal results.
