Sweating is the body’s natural response to extreme heat conditions, such as those experienced when exercising or in a hot climate. Some people, however, sweat nearly all the time, no matter the temperature and no matter how many times they apply antiperspirant. Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is highly distressing to those it affects, causing them to change clothing constantly and in some cases, it causes people to completely avoid social situations. At Advanced Dermatology, PC, with offices located in Manhattan, New York City and elsewhere in New York and New Jersey, miraDry® is a new, minimally-invasive treatment for excessive underarm sweating. Here are questions commonly asked by patients considering miraDry® in Manhattan and elsewhere.
Your constant sweating is the result of an overactive sweat gland. This commonly affects otherwise healthy individuals, although it may sometimes occur with other conditions.
To treat your excessive sweating, options include prescription antiperspirants, oral medications, Botox injections to your underarms or surgery. Each of these options, however, has drawbacks, which may include possible side effects, high cost, or relatively short-term results.
miraDry® is a relatively new option to treat excessive underarm sweating without surgery, offering long-lasting results.
Using electromagnetic energy, miraDry® eliminates underarm sweat glands, which do not grow back afterwards.
Located at 211 Central Park West (corner of West 81st and Central Park West), Advanced Dermatology, PC, is on Manhattan’s beautiful Upper West Side. The office’s warm, cozy atmosphere will put you at ease.
To find out if you are a candidate for miraDry, you will come in for a consultation at our Manhattan dermatology office. During your consultation, you will be examined and your medical history will be reviewed.
