MiraDry, No Sweat!

Published on August 17, 2017

There is nothing more disgusting than to go about your day, only to discover that your body is giving out a strange odor and that the patch under your arm pits is moist. Body odor and sweating make people feel insecure about themselves, and are the last things you want to deal with as you go about your day.

Although there are various products available in the market that is supposed to address this issue, such as body talc, there are several situations where this does not prove to be effective. It is situations like this that led to the conceptualization and creation of miraDry, an effective way to say goodbye to sweat forever.

Eliminate Sweat and Odor with MiraDry

MiraDry has been cleared by the FDA in the USA and has been marked with CE in Europe to treat axillary hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive underarm sweating. MiraDry is currently the best product on the market for inhibiting the growth of hair and subsequent release of odor in the body.

In 2013, a study was published in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy that revealed that MiraDry was not only effective in combating axillary hyperhidrosis, but also axillary osmidrosis, or the release of foul smelling sweat. In the study, eleven patients in Asia were treated with miraDry for a period of seven months, after which the effects of miraDry on the body were tested.

The tests revealed that 83.3% of patients suffering from hyperhidrosis experienced an improvement up to two points in the Hyperhidrosis Disease Severity Scale. Of those that suffered from osmidrosis, up to 93.8% of patients experienced impressive improvements.

What You Need to Know About MiraDry

Various studies have showcased the effectiveness of miraDry when it comes to combating sweat in the under arms. In April 2012, clinical data from the University of British Columbia revealed that miraDry had a successful record of fixing hyperhidrosis in 90% of the patients that used it. The average sweat reduction was 82%, while patient satisfaction rates went up to 90%.

MiraDry was developed by Miramar labs in Sunnyvale, California. While miraDry is an effective way to combat underarm sweating, it has not yet proven undeniable results for other areas of the body that sweat, such as hands and feet. How far these techniques would be useful for hands and feet is currently being worked on thanks to a study.

MiraDry is a noninvasive device that works by introducing electromagnetic waves into the underlying layer of the skin which contains the sweat glands. The resulting effect is thermolysis of the sweat glands, that ensures that the body no longer sweats excessively. The sweat glands do not come back, resulting in a process that is as effective as it is long lasting. Usually, visible effects are seen just after one treatment, but for severe cases, two or three sessions spread out over three months is ideal. If you have a sweating problem that you need to get rid of, then miraDry is for you.
