Hyperhidrosis/Body Odour Treatment – MiraDry Microwave Technology
Compared to traditional treatments for hyperhidrosis and body honour, the minimally invasive MiraDry microwave technology, approved by the USFDA, provides speedy treatment for patients of primary hyperhidrosis without the risks that come with the surgical removal of sweat glands. Treatment for this condition is no longer temporary, and MiraDry’s microwave technology can bring long lasting effects.
MiraDry treatment can be administered at a specialist’s clinic, and no hospitalization is required. Before the treatment, the surgeon will administer local anesthesia at the patient’s underarms, and then place the head of the MiraDry equipment on the skin at the underarms. Microwaves will then be released to remove the sweat glands at the underarms through minimally-invasive means.
As the microwaves released at the treatment will penetrate the dermis of the sweat glands, effectiveness of the treatment will not be affected by skin thickness. The cooling technology further prevents skin damage. As the removed sweat glands will not regrow, MiraDry treatment is an effective solution to hyperhidrosis and body odour. Not only is it non-toxic, the procedure is speedy and the effects are long lasting. Latest clinic research shows that patients who had undergone MiraDry treatment experience up to an 80% reduction in sweat secretion.
Will undergoing MiraDry treatment affect my daily life?
Recovery after undergoing MiraDry treatment takes less time than surgery. After the treatment, patients may return to work on the same day, and may perform exercise after several days. It is normal to experience soreness or swelling at the affected area. Applying an icepack can relieve any discomfort, and doctors may prescribe painkillers when necessary. Generally, soreness and swelling will cease after several weeks.
