Roughly 2% of your sweat glands are right under your arms, which is why you may experience embarrassing underarm wetness. With miraDry® treatments, offered at the office of Dr. Jane H. Lisko, MD, you won’t ever have to worry about excessive underarm sweating again. Find out if miraDry is right for you by booking a consultation at Dr. Lisko’s Eden Prairie or Fridley, Minnesota, clinic locations. You can conveniently schedule an appointment online or over the phone.
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating, especially if it isn’t caused by exercise or heat. This chronic condition affects more than 37 million Americans on a regular basis, so you aren’t alone.
Sweating is an important way for your body to cool itself, and you have millions of sweat glands all over your body. Sweat doesn’t need to come from single locations (like your underarms).
You can treat underarm hyperhidrosis with miraDry. This revolutionary hyperhidrosis treatment safely destroys the sweat glands in your armpits, so you don’t sweat excessively in these areas.
During your miraDry treatment with Dr. Lisko, you get to lie back and relax. The miraDry applicator carefully suctions your skin to bring skin and sweat glands closer to the tool for maximum benefits.
This handheld miraDry tool simultaneously delivers thermal energy to your underarm tissue. The gentle heating effect of miraDry safely and effectively destroys targeted sweat glands on the spot. Don’t worry about getting too heated during the procedure because the miraDry system even has cooling cycles to help you stay comfortable during your treatment.
The results are immediate and on average, miraDry results in an 82% sweat reduction and an 89% odor reduction. All of those targeted sweat glands are destroyed permanently, so you won’t have to worry about excessive underarm wetness or odor again.
It depends. Dr. Lisko usually finds that a single, one-hour miraDry session is sufficient to improve chronic issues with underarm wetness and odor. If you have a severe case of hyperhidrosis, she may recommend additional miraDry sessions.
Dr. Lisko wants to ensure you receive the aesthetic treatment you need, without focusing on pain. She numbs your treatment area with local anesthesia, so you won’t be able to feel a thing during your miraDry treatment. It’s normal to experience some slight numbness, swelling, or bruising after miraDry, but these minor side effects subside within a few days.
