Hair/Sweat/Odor Reduction Scottsdale, AZ
The perfect underarm will soon be the norm with the innovative miraSmooth treatment. The FDA has approved this in office treatment for the reduction in underarm hair. All hair color and skin color can be treated. There is no other modality that can make that claim miraSmooth acts by delivering energy to an area beneath the skin where hair follicles reside. The energy is not focused on pigment or color so the treatment is equally effective for all. Energy produces heat which in turn disables the hair follicle. As much as 70% or the hair can be affected with a single treatment. Most may desire additional treatments for more reduction.
Then most exciting thing about this procedure is that not only does hair go away predictably but there is also a meaningful reduction in sweat and in odor.
The perfect underarm: less hair, less sweat, less odor.
What is the miraSmooth™ treatment?
miraSmooth is a combination treatment, powered by miraWaveTM technology, that simultaneously and permanently reduces underarm hair and sweat.
What results can I expect?
You can expect immediate and lasting results. Recent clinical information confirms significant reduction in underarm hair and an average of 82% sweat reduction in most patients. As with any aesthetic treatment results will vary by person.
Don’t I need sweat glands?
Not in your armpits! You are born with approximately 2 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms only contain about 2% 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.
What is the treatment like?
You will be in a reclined position for about one hour. You aren’t likely to feel anything during the treatment since your underarms will be numbed prior to treatment. After treatment, you may experience swelling, soreness, tingling and numbness in the treated area. These sensations typically clear-up within a few days to a few weeks.
How does it work?
For permanent results in your underarm, the miraWave technology will heat and destroy hair follicles along with sweat and odor glands. Unlike lasers, miraWave doesn’t rely on hair color to work - which is what makes this procedure so revolutionary. Hair follicles that are located in the area where we deliver energy will be destroyed regardless of color or hair growth stage. Sweat and odor glands are also located in the area we’re delivering energy so those will also be destroyed.
How many treatments will I need?
Dr. Van Dyke will likely use a combination treatment consisting of a single miraDry treatment in Scottsdale followed with a short course of laser hair removal until you achieve satisfactory hair reduction, however the sweat reduction results will be immediate. As with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your expected results.
