Van Dyke Aesthetics offer a solution to excessive sweating
Excessive sweating happens when a person sweats more than is necessary. Yes, it’s necessary to sweat. Sweating cools the body, which prevents us from overheating. People who have hyperhidrosis, however, sweat when the body does not need cooling.
Many people who have hyperhidrosis sweat from one or two areas of the body. Most often, they sweat from their palms, feet, underarms, or head. While the rest of the body remains dry, one or two areas may drip with sweat.
This excessive sweating can interfere with everyday activities. Hands can be so sweaty that it becomes difficult to turn a doorknob or use a computer. Sweat from the underarms often soaks through clothes, causing obvious sweat marks. Because the skin is often wet, skin infections can develop.
miraDry is a non-invasive procedure that is proven to reduce underarm sweating. 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.
Disclaimer: miraDry is for the underarm only.
