Announcing MiraDry® - An effective treatment for excessive sweating

The BioSpa at Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery is excited to announce they are now offering MiraDry®. A clinically proven treatment for Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Are you one of the 1 in 5 people in America who suffer from embarrassing excessive underarm sweat? If so, MiraDry® could be the long term solution you’ve been waiting for.

What is Hyperhidrosis? – Hyperhidrosis is a common disorder which causes an estimated 2-3% of Americans to suffer from the embarrassment of excessive sweating of the underarms and/or the palms and soles of the feet. Underarm problems often begin in late adolescence and palm/sole problems around the age of 13. If left untreated, this could cause issues throughout life.

Excessive sweating causes embarrassment, stains clothes, ruins intimacy, and can negatively impact social or business interactions.

How it works – MiraDry® is the only FDA approved non-invasive procedure that provides a lasting reduction of underarm sweat. Other treatment options, including antiperspirants and toxins, attempt to temporarily disable the sweat glands, requiring ongoing treatments. Other options involve surgery, which increase potential risks, require incisions and downtime, as well as an increase in cost. MiraDry® is a safe, clinically proven treatment for significantly reducing underarm sweat. The treatment is performed in our office. There are no incisions required and no downtime. MiraDry works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the underarm sweat glands. In most cases, we recommend two procedures scheduled 3 months apart to maximize results. The total treatment time is approximately 1 hour.

“Immediately after the miraDry procedure I knew that it was working, I wasn’t sweating anymore and it was great. It’s been about two years since I’ve had the procedure and I’m still experiencing the same results. Now I can wear whatever I want, and I don’t have to worry about seeing it later in a picture.” – Joanna, miraDry patient
