What Is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating. People with excessive sweating report sweating even when the temperature around them is cool or even when they are at rest and not engaging in exercise or physically demanding activities. Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is a common problem. Many people who suffer from hyperhidrosis experience excessive sweating in their hands, feet, face, and underarms.

Treatment for Excessive Underarm Sweating

The primary cause of hyperhidrosis is overactive sweat glands. In these cases, the nerves that signal the sweat glands to produce sweat are sending signals even when the body is at rest or the surrounding temperatures are cool. Botox injections can treat this problem. Botox can be injected into the underarms to reduce activity in the sweat glands, but this treatment does not provide permanent results.

MiraDry for Treating Excessive Sweating

MiraDry is a non-invasive procedure that deactivates underarm sweat glands and is for treating excessive sweating. It is a safe and effective procedure. Initially, the surgeon draws temporary markings on the skin for treatment. In the next step, local anesthesia is administered for the patient’s comfort. Then the MiraDry procedure is performed.

During the treatment, microwave energy is used to produce heat that targets and eliminated sweat glands in the area. a continuous cooling system helps to keep the skin cool throughout the process to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.

Most normal activities can be resumed the same day as the treatment, although some patients may want to refrain from exercise for a few days as the area recovers.
