Many people find excessive underarm sweating and its related odor, known as hyperhidrosis, embarrassing and stressful. This condition can be such a problem that it ruins clothing and affects people's personal lives. At The ZO Skin Centre in Dallas, Texas, we offer those who suffer from hyperhidrosis a non-surgical treatment with a new technology called miraDry, a Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved treatment to eliminate your underarm sweat glands.
You may wonder if it is healthy to live without the sweat glands in your underarms - it is! There are millions of sweat glands throughout the human body that make it safe to eliminate the 2% of your total sweat glands found in your underarm area. Your miraDry session is a quick appointment and requires no recovery time. To learn more or to stop your excessive sweating today, schedule a miraDry consultation with our office.
In one of our treatment rooms, we will prepare your underarm skin for treatment with a local anesthetic. A certified miraDry technician will apply the device directly on your underarm skin. The energy emitted from the device will work to destroy your sweat glands. We will treat both underarms in the same appointment.
After Your Treatment
After the local anesthesia has worn off (your underarm area will be numb afterward), you may return to your normal activities. If you experience swelling or discomfort in the days following, you can apply an ice pack to the area and take an over-the-counter pain reliever. You may need a few days to recover from a miraDry treatment and should restrict activities that make you sweat. If you experience any abnormal side effects, please call our office for assistance. Depending on your treatment plan, you may need another treatment spaced 2 –3 months afterward to eliminate more sweat glands.
