Excessive sweating of the underarms
can now be treated with miraDry system, a product developed by Miramar labs
Microwave energy is used in this
system to cause thermal necrosis of sweat glands in the required area. It is a
non-invasive treatment and requires a 2hour session with the doctor. The procedure
is completed in 3steps- temporary markings are made on the skin, local
anesthesia is administered and then the miraDry system is used.
The actual time period required for
the treatment is about 40minutes. Just in case some areas are skipped, a touch
up visit may be needed. The custom software makes it easier to carry out the
process. Majority patients notice difference soon after the treatment.
