Hyperhidrosis Q & A

What is hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis refers to abnormally excessive sweating that may not even be caused by heat or exercise. Everyone sweats sometimes, but hyperhidrosis may cause you to soak through your clothes, potentially ruining shirts and blouses.

What does my hyperhidrosis treatment entail?

If excessive underarm sweat interferes with your life or ever causes embarrassment, the team at McGuiness Dermatology & Plastic Surgery can help. They proudly offer miraDry, a safe and effective treatment that eliminates your need to use deodorant or antiperspirants ever again.

How does miraDry work?

In as little as one treatment, miraDry stops sweat right in its tracks. Using patented thermal technology, miraDry targets and destroys the sweat and odor glands under your arms. Once those glands are gone, they don’t grow back.

Not only does miraDry treat hyperhidrosis, it’s also proven to reduce up to 70% of hair growth in the underarms. With miraDry, you can raise your arms with confidence every time.

Is miraDry safe?

Yes -- miraDry is a safe, noninvasive, and FDA-cleared treatment. This technology has an excellent safety record across more than 55,000 successful treatments worldwide.

If you’re concerned about your body’s ability to sweat after treatment, don’t worry. Only about 2% of your body’s sweat glands are located under your arms. This means you continue to perspire normally everywhere else in your body after miraDry treatment.

What should I expect from a miraDry treatment?

First, your provider at McGuiness Dermatology & Plastic Surgery performs a physical exam and reviews your medical history to ensure you’re a good candidate for miraDry.

Before treatment, your provider numbs your underarm area for enhanced comfort. miraDry treatment lasts about an hour, during which you relax in a reclined position. You may feel slight suction when they apply the miraDry handpiece to your underarm.

Afterward, most men and women return to work or normal activities right away. You can expect an immediate reduction in sweat and odor but should refrain from vigorous exercise for a few days after treatment.

Side effects are mild, but you may experience temporary swelling, soreness, or tingling in your underarms. This usually fades within a few days to weeks.
