End excessive, and embarrassing, sweating permanently with the FDA-approved, non-invasive miraDry procedure, now offered at Van Dyke Aesthetics
Come in today to learn more about this high-tech new procedure that offers an FDA-approved and long-lasting solution to anyone who wants to dramatically reduce their sweating and dependence on chemical antiperspirants.* Using precisely controlled electromagnetic energy, this breakthrough procedure eliminates targeted underarm sweat glands, unlike other procedures such as Botox and antiperspirants, which only temporarily disable the sweat glands and require frequent repeat treatments to maintain effectiveness. Unlike surgery or other more invasive treatments, miraDry patients experience little pain because the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, with most people experiencing only some pressure and light pulling on the skin, with some sensations of warmth. Most important, patients can expect instant results (average underarm sweating reduction of 82-percent, according to a clinical study*) with minimal to no downtime.
The procedure itself usually takes about an hour, and a second procedure may be recommended, three months apart, to maximize the quality and duration of results. Even better, the miraDry procedure has a 98-percent approval rating on RealSelf.com, the world's largest community for reviewing, learning and sharing information about cosmetic surgery, dermatology and other elective treatments. Check out what patients who have had miraDry have to say for themselves!
We are often asked, "What are the potential side effects of eliminating sweat glands?" According to Dr. Susan Van Dyke, the human body contains more than four million sweat glands, and only about 2-percent of them are in your underarms. So a miraDry procedure will not affect your body's ability to cool. Dr. Van Dyke feels it's important to clarify that when sweat glands are removed from the underarms, your body won't start sweating more in other areas to compensate. There are in fact a couple positive side effects – by eliminating sweat you also eliminate the associated odor! Additionally, there is also a reduction of hair in the treated area. So say goodbye to excessive sweating, odor, and hair with the help of the Van Dyke Aesthetics team.
With over 5 years of experience in delivering miraDry treatments, Van Dyke Aesthetics is confident that you will find the results that you are looking for.
Who Is A Good Candidate For MiraDry?
Anyone who wants to take control of their underarm sweating is a great candidate for miraDry.
What Results Can Be Achieved With A MiraDry Procedure?
You’ll see an immediate reduction in underarm sweating. According to a clinical study, sweating is reduced up to 82% on average post 1-2 treatments, but results vary by person, depending on the severity of the sweating.
How Long Do MiraDry Results Last?
The results are long-lasting since the sweat glands don’t grow back once they’ve been eliminated.
What Risks Are Included With A MiraDry Treatment?
There may be some soreness, swelling, bruising and temporary sensation change in the treated area but miraDry is a safe procedure. There are millions of sweat glands dispersed throughout the body, and only 2% of them are located in the underarms. Your body post miraDry will still be able to properly cool itself.
Is MiraDry Painful?
Before the treatment, a numbing agent, Lidocaine, is injected into the treatment field to control discomfort.
Do The Underarm Sweat Glands Ever Grow Back?
No. The underarm sweat glands don’t grow back or regenerate once they’ve been removed.
But Wait, Don’t I Need My Underarm Sweat Glands?
Actually, no. Your body contains over four million sweat glands, and only about 2% of them are in your underarms. Eliminating this 2% does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself.
Does MiraDry Cause Increased Sweating In Other Parts Of The Body?
No. When sweat glands are removed from the underarms, you simply stop sweating in that area. So don’t worry – your body won’t start sweating more in other areas to “compensate” or anything like that.
Can MiraDry Remove Sweat Glands Elsewhere On The Body
No. miraDry cannot be used to treat excessive sweating in other areas of the body, such as hands, feet, forehead, or knees.
