miraDry® in Modesto, CA
Underarm perspiration leaves stains on your clothes and may even cause embarrassing odor. If you have excessive underarm sweating, miraDry® may help. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lars Enevoldsen of Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center, offers miraDry® for men and women in Modesto, Stockton and surrounding areas of California.
What is miraDry®?
miraDry® is the only non-invasive, FDA-cleared aesthetic treatment that safely removes underarm sweat and odor glands. It’s a quick in-office procedure that provides a long-lasting solution for underarm sweat.
Dr. Enevoldsen explains to his patients that the sweat glands in the armpits are not necessary. You are born with approximately 2,000,000 sweat glands throughout your body, and your underarms only contain about two percent of those glands. With miraDry®, you will experience the many benefits of stopping sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat elsewhere.
Benefits of miraDry®
You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your expected results.
The procedure provides immediate and lasting results – sweat glands don’t come back after treatment. The amount of sweat reduction you desire should be discussed with your miraDry® physician. Recent clinical information confirms an average of 82 percent sweat reduction in most patients. As with any aesthetic treatment, results will vary by person.
How Does miraDry® Work for Excessive Sweating?
miraDry® uses focused energy that is the ideal wavelength for eliminating the sweat and odor glands in the underarm. It non-invasively targets the area where the glands reside and safely destroys them while cooling the skin.
Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment to assist in increasing comfort. Some patients describe the initial anesthetic injections as the most painful part of the procedure. There are no incisions or cuts. Treatment is customized to each underarm with multiple placements of the miraDry® handpiece. An office visit appointment will generally last about one hour.
What to Expect from miraDry®
Most patients experience minimal downtime and return to regular activity, including work, immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days post-treatment.
