Three Reasons miraDry® Will Help You Beat the Houston Heat

Beat Hyperhydrosis

07/20/2021

miraDry® is a non-surgical treatment for underarm sweating that can help you beat the Houston heat with its three primary benefits:

  1. A significant reduction in sweating and armpit stains
  2. A substantial reduction in underarm odor
  3. A noticeable reduction of underarm hair

Although non-surgical, the results obtained through miraDry® are permanent. This can provide a lifetime of relief from the embarrassment and discomfort our hot Houston summers can create for individuals who struggle with underarm sweat. If this sounds like you, give us a call at 281-242-1061 to schedule your miraDry® consultation and learn how we can help you achieve optimal comfort all year round.

Non-Surgical Sweat Gland Reduction

In the past, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) was often treated through the surgical removal of sweat glands. miraDry® eliminates the need for incisions or a long and potentially complicated recovery period by utilizing electromagnetic energy to target and eliminate sweat glands through the skin. miraWave™ energy is delivered through a handheld application device into pre-selected areas of the armpit. This helps to ensure the most consistent and reliable results can be obtained in the least intrusive way possible.

Before treatment begins, we will carefully numb the treatment area to help ensure your absolute comfort. While some localized swelling and discomfort may be present for a short time after treatment, most miraDry® patients can resume nearly all normal activities right away. This is a vast improvement over the amount of time it can take to recover from surgical treatment for hyperhidrosis.

How Long Before the Benefits Begin?

It can take a few days for miraDry® treatment to produce ideal results. Some patients may need to return for a second application, though this is not always the case. The best way to learn how quickly you can regain confidence by reducing underarm sweat and odor is through a private and confidential consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon.

Houston summers are brutal and for people who suffer from excessive sweating, they can be even more uncomfortable. If you are one of them, your struggles don’t need to continue. Call Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics at 281-242-1061 today to schedule your initial consultation and learn more. 

Located in Houston, we provide lasting relief from underarm sweating and odor to men and women living in Memorial, Sugar Land, The Woodlands, Kingwood, and all surrounding areas of Texas.
