miraSmooth®: An Innovative and Non-Invasive Option for Underarm Hair Removal
Constantly shaving your armpits is a hassle, and periodic waxes can be downright painful. Fortunately, Dr. Suzanne Yee proudly offers an innovative method of underarm hair removal at her Little Rock, AR, practice. Ultramodern miraSmooth uses microwave energy to destroy hair follicles and reduce unwanted hair by approximately 70 percent. The treatment causes negligible discomfort and works for all hair colors. Plus, when you visit our office, we can often combine miraSmooth with miraDry®, a proven treatment for excessive underarm sweating. Combined, the two treatments can dramatically improve your self-confidence and your quality of life.
Are You a Candidate for miraSmooth?
If you have an unusual amount of underarm hair, or if you are simply tired of the upkeep involved with regular shaves and waxes, you are likely a candidate for miraSmooth. Previous methods of laser hair removal were only suitable for fair-haired, light-skinned individuals. Those with darker skin and hair often did not see the desired results, and, on occasion, the laser even damaged their skin and left scars. One of the most noteworthy features of newer miraSmooth is that it is appropriate for patients of all skin types and hair colors. To qualify, you must simply be a healthy individual without any active skin conditions.
How Does miraSmooth Work?
During your miraSmooth procedure, you will lie down with your arms slightly elevated. A local anesthetic will be administered to the treatment area. Dr. Yee or a member of her team will then mark the precise areas of your underarms you want treated. This helps the doctor achieve the most precise and successful results possible. The miraSmooth instrument will then deliver microwave energy to the tissue between the layers of fat and skin in your underarms. The energy will destroy hair follicles in every stage of the growth cycle. At the same time, because the powerful waves are precisely targeted, they will not affect your nearby skin or cause significant discomfort. In fact, most patients feel only a slight suction sensation.
Frequently, your miraSmooth treatment can take place in conjunction with miraDry. The two treatments utilize the same principles, and miraDry will emit microwave energy to destroy the glands that cause excessive sweating. Like miraSmooth, miraDry causes very little discomfort. Even when combined, the highly efficient procedures will take only about one hour. Some patients may require more than one treatment to achieve their desired results.
miraSmooth is appropriate for patients of all skin types and hair colors.
