Summer Is Coming: If You Suffer From Hyperhidrosis, Try Our MiraDry Treatment
Sweating is a normal bodily function, but if you sweat excessively or have hyperhidrosis, it can interfere with the comfort of your daily life — especially during the hot, summer months. Read on to find out if miraDry® might be the answer!

Summer is around the corner! The season of sunshine, beach vacations, and fun outdoor activities is always a time to look forward to for almost everyone. But if you suffer from hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), the hot months can be a nightmare. 

Here at Valencia Medical Center in Valencia, California, our team understands what you’re dealing with. Hyperhidrosis can affect various parts of your body, including your underarms, palms, and feet, causing embarrassment, discomfort, and even social isolation. Fortunately, we have a solution: miraDry.

The noninvasive, FDA-cleared miraDry treatment uses electromagnetic energy to eliminate sweat and odor glands in the underarms. We perform the procedure at our practice, and the treatment takes less than an hour. You walk away with amazing results that eliminate sweat and odor.

If you're considering miraDry, here are the benefits we want you to know about:

Safe and effective

The miraDry treatment has been extensively tested and found to be both safe and effective. This non-invasive treatment has been cleared by the FDA and is clinically proven to reduce sweat and offers noticeable & positive results.

Long-lasting results

Unlike other treatments that only provide temporary relief, miraDry provides long-lasting results. Once the sweat glands are eliminated, they won’t regenerate, which means that you can expect a significant reduction in underarm sweat and odor for years to come.

Relatively painless

While some patients may experience mild discomfort during the miraDry procedure, most report that the procedure is relatively painless. We give you a local anesthetic to numb the targeted area of your underarms, which helps to minimize any discomfort.

Minimal recovery time

After your miraDry procedure, you can expect some swelling and soreness in your underarms, which can be managed with ice packs and over-the-counter pain medication as needed. However, you should be able to return to your normal activities right away. There is little to no downtime required after the procedure.

Customizable procedure

Every patient is different, and we recognize that. That’s another reason we like miraDry. We can customize your procedure to meet your specific needs by adjusting the level of electromagnetic energy used during your treatment to ensure you get the best possible results.

If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, miraDry may be the solution you've been looking for. If you're interested in learning more about this treatment, contact our office today. We want to help you enjoy a sweat-free summer!
