Underarm sweating can be an embarrassing condition that affects your daily life. You might feel it necessary to change your shirt multiple times a day or to avoid situations in which you'll feel self-conscious. Frequent applications of antiperspirant only help so much. Fortunately, Dr. Theresa M. Jarmuz provides treatments with miraDry in Atlanta to combat sweating. MiraDry is the only non-invasive procedure cleared by the FDA for a lasting reduction of underarm sweat.
Dr. Jarmuz is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon offering various surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. To learn more about miraDry or other procedures at our medical spa, request your consultation online, or call the Buckhead Facial Plastic Surgery office at (404) 233-3937.
miraDry treatments are non-invasive outpatient procedures at our office that reduce or remove sweat glands from under your arms. After a member of our team numbs the area with a local anesthetic, we use a hand-held device to deliver electromagnetic energy to heat the sweat glands. The procedure typically takes about an hour, and 2 treatments are recommended to get the best results. We usually recommend waiting 3 months before getting the second treatment.
Because the area is numbed prior to the procedure, most patients say there is little to no discomfort during the treatment. There may be some soreness after the treatment, which typically resolves within a week or 2.
Sweat glands don't grow back, so the results are long-lasting. You should notice reduced sweating after the first treatment. A second treatment will enhance your results.
