If you’re one of the approximately 4 million Americans with axillary hyperhidrosis -- excessive sweating of the underarms -- you need to know about miraDry®. At Houston’s Vintage Wellness and Aesthetics, Vivianne Lubrano, RN, Certified Esthetician Jessica Acosta, and Medical Assistant Myriam Lopez, use this innovative procedure to end the burden and embarrassment of excessive underarm sweating permanently. To learn more about this cutting-edge procedure, book your initial consultation online or call the office.
miraDry is a system that uses energy to destroy your underarm sweat glands. You may require more than one treatment initially, but after that, miraDry protects you permanently from excessive underarm sweat and the embarrassment it can cause.
Only about 2% of your body’s sweat glands are found in the underarm area, so removing them doesn’t do any harm. Your body can still remove toxins and cool itself safely and effectively.
As researchers studied miraDry, they noticed that patients receiving the treatment enjoyed drastically reduced hair growth, in addition to their lack of excessive sweating. Because unwanted underarm hair is a common complaint, the company pursued that line of research and developed miraSmooth.
miraSmooth received clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2015 and is the only system cleared for permanent reduction of underarm hair and elimination of excessive underarm sweating in one treatment.
Before undergoing treatment, schedule an initial consultation with a Vintage Wellness provider to determine whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure and if it can bring you the results you desire.
First, your Vintage Wellness and Aesthetics provider marks your underarm to create a map of the treatment area and then numbers the area. Next, they place the handpiece from the miraDry system against your skin. You may feel a slight suction during this part of the treatment.
The system then transmits energy through your skin to the sweat and odor glands beneath it, destroying them. The whole process takes about one hour, and you can enjoy sweat- and hair-free underarms forever.
If you’re embarrassed or experience discomfort due to underarm sweat or hair, schedule a consultation at Vintage Wellness and Aesthetics to learn more about the miraDry and miraSmooth systems. You can call the office or use the online booking tool.
