Featured Image

For most of us, putting on deodorant is simply a part of our daily routine and isn’t given much thought. For some people, however, controlling underarm sweat is a constant source of stress, anxiety, and frustration. Men, women, and even teens who struggle with excessive underarm sweating, known as hyperhidrosis, often find that deodorant does little to curb their sweat and odor. To help Murrieta, Menifee, Temecula, and Lake Elsinore, CA patients stay fresh, dry, and confident, board-certified physician and wellness expert Dr. Lily Phillips is proud to offer in-office miraDry treatment at Ageless Grace. If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of miraDry, including how it may be the long-term hyperhidrosis solution you’ve been searching for, review the helpful information below.

Do I have hyperhidrosis?

While everyone sweats with certain activities or situations, patients with hyperhidrosis may experience one or more of the following signs and symptoms:

  • Excessive sweating
  • Constant sweating
  • Sweating at rest
  • Sweating for no reason
  • Strong body odor
  • Deodorant does not work
  • Underarm sweat stains
  • Have to change shirts many times per day

If you suspect that you have hyperhidrosis, you may be a candidate for miraDry.

Who can get miraDry?

Virtually any adult or teenager who struggles with excessive underarm sweat can be considered a candidate for miraDry treatment. Even patients who simply want to stop wearing deodorant, whether for convenience or to avoid certain chemicals, can undergo miraDry treatment to reduce underarm sweat. In the majority of cases, however, miraDry is used to reduce sweating and body odor in patients with hyperhidrosis. During your initial consultation for miraDry in the Temecula/Murrieta area, Dr. Phillips will discuss your concerns, evaluate your symptoms, and determine if miraDry may be appropriate and effective for you.

How does miraDry work?

miraDry is a completely noninvasive, nonsurgical treatment that utilizes electromagnetic heat energy to destroy sweat glands under the arms. During the procedure, a topical numbing cream will be applied to ensure the patient’s comfort. The miraDry handpiece will then be applied to the underarm, and gentle suction will help bring the sweat glands toward the skin’s surface. Targeted thermal energy will then be delivered to the glands, causing them to become damaged and ultimately destroyed.

How many miraDry sessions do I need for hyperhidrosis?

On average, patients require just 1 – 2 miraDry treatment sessions to achieve their desired outcome.

Is miraDry permanent?

Perhaps the most compelling benefit of miraDry is that it destroys underarm sweat glands, meaning the patient can theoretically enjoy a lifetime of feeling fresh, dry, and confident. While treated sweat glands will not grow back after miraDry, some glands may remain. Should a patient notice the return of sweat or odor after miraDry, a subsequent round of treatment can likely help to improve their results and give them years –if not a lifetime – of relief from hyperhidrosis.
