miraDry Can Help Regain Confidence Treatment for Excessive Sweating
Many of our patients are concerned with sweat in the underarm area. Some may even suffer from a condition known as hyperhidrosis. This condition can damage your clothes, cause self-consciousness, and distract you from your daily responsibilities. Thankfully, Dr. Suzanne Yee is a compassionate cosmetic surgeon who offers a wide range of effective non-surgical treatments, including miraDry®. A powerful, noninvasive electromagnetic therapy, miraDry targets and destroys sweat glands in the underarms, permanently eliminating sweat in the area. The procedure can even reduce hair growth and odor. Dr. Yee offers the treatment at her state-of-the-art surgical center in Little Rock, AR, where your comfort and relaxation are our top priorities.
Are You Concerned with Underarm Sweating?
Whether you suffer from hyperhidrosis or are simply unhappy with underarm sweat, Dr. Yee can address your concerns. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes the body to produce an unnecessary amount of sweat on the face, palms, and especially the underarms. There are no known exact causes of hyperhidrosis but social anxiety, nervousness, and caffeine are a few possible causes.
Unfortunately, patients usually feel extremely self-conscious about wet marks left by overactive sweat glands in the underarms. Oftentimes, patients will try to compensate with antiperspirants that can mark and stain clothing. Discomfort from the effects of sweating can cause individuals to change their shirt frequently or avoid social gatherings and other events.
Is miraDry Right for You?
Do you find yourself constantly worrying and anticipating the moment when your underarm stains will show? Are you overwhelmed by the desire to change your shirt to hide your excessive sweat? If so, miraDry may be right for you. This non-toxic solution is effective for patients with any hair and skin color. Treatment is permanent, safe, and approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Other treatments may be effective for a short time, but they do not eliminate the glands which are the cause of your excessive sweating.
miraDry is non-invasive, non-toxic, and approved by the FDA. The advanced solution offers safe, permanent results.
miraDry is a noninvasive treatment that provides a permanent solution for excessive underarm sweat and odor. This system uses proprietary energy pulses to target the sweat and odor glands in the underarms and permanently destroys them. The treatment is virtually painless and requires minimal to no downtime.
Your miraDry session can take place in the comfort of Dr. Yee's private, luxurious surgical center, allowing you to conveniently undergo this affordable, life-changing treatment. Results are immediate, and the treatment only takes about an hour from start to finish, helping you to fit the procedure into your busy schedule. Typically, only one treatment session is required.
What You Can Expect
Before your treatment, Dr. Yee will administer local anesthesia in the underarms to ensure your comfort. Most patients experience little, if any, pain during the procedure. She will then place the handpiece on the targeted areas. Mild suction will be applied to bring the skin closer to the device for more effective treatment. The device emits heat energy to deeper layers of the underarm where the glands are located, combined with a cooling energy at the top layer of your skin to ensure your comfort. After about an hour, your sweat glands will be destroyed and you can resume your regular activities with confidence.
