For most people, the simple go-to sweating solution is antiperspirant, but for the approximately 3-5% of the population who suffer from hyperhidrosis, this is not enough. Also called excessive sweating, hyperhidrosis often has no clear cause, but is a very real problem for those who are affected, especially in the summer months when temperatures soar.
The Permanent Sweating Solution
Hyperhidrosis can occur in both men and women, and can affect the palms (palmar hyperhidrosis), armpits (axillary hyperhidrosis), head (cranial hyperhidrosis), and feet (plantar hyperhidrosis). miraDry now offers a solution to axillary hyperhidrosis, using state of the art patented technology to directly address the root cause of excessive sweating. This technology is called miraWaves and directly targets the problem, the sweat glands, without the need for surgery.
Results are permanent, as the glands that are treated are not able to regenerate, and can be noticed after just one session, though most patients are recommended a course of two sessions three months apart in order to achieve the most effective outcomes.
Alternative Sweating Treatment: Botox
Before we can treat axillary hyperhidrosis, we always require a consultation to assess your needs. This allows us to correctly determine the appropriate treatment for your unique concern, whether this is miraDry or our alternative excessive sweating treatment, targeted injections of botulinum toxin.
Botulinum toxin is a purified protein most commonly known for its uses in relaxing wrinkles, and often simply called Botox, though this is actually a brand name. It can be used effectively to address excessive sweating, also by targeting the sweat glands, though its results do not last as long as miraDry, with outcomes that are clinically proven for 3-6 months.
