Say goodbye to underarmsweat and odor
If you suffer from excessive underarm sweat, you may not realize that there is a medical name for this condition: hyperhidrosis. Intense sweating results when the body’s sweat glands become overactive, and are working far beyond what is needed to regulate body temperature. This can occur any time of day, and in varying areas of the body, including the underarms, the face, the hands, the body or the feet. At Coolspa we deliver arguably the best and most effective MiraDry NYC has to offer
Hyperhidrosis is often a cause for social embarrassment, as it can produce stains on clothing and can lead to anxiety in both work and social settings. The cause for the condition can be from multiple sources that include unlucky genetics, endocrine issues, infections, spinal cord issues or neurological problems.
Many people do not have true hyperhidrosis, but are nonetheless very bothered by their underarm sweat and/or odor. They may find that despite maximal use of deodorants, they are still not able to achieve adequate control of sweat and/or odor. Or they may be throwing away clothing because of deodorant related damage, or feel socially uncomfortable because of sweat, odor, or both. There also are a significant number of people who are simply not completely satisfied regarding their concerns over the long-term safety of aluminum base deodorants, and prefer a single-treatment solution.
Thankfully, there is an excellent solution to excessive sweating called MiraDry NYC, and Dr. Rapaport’s team at Coolspa NYC is excited to offer this procedure as part of our continued passion for safe, effective, non-surgical and non-invasive treatments for the face and body. We pride ourselves on providing some of the best MiraDry New York has to offer.
MiraDry in NYC is FDA-cleared to help eliminate the pesky sweat and odor glands that cause so much trouble. The procedure can be performed quickly over a one hour break, and generally has little to no downtime or discomfort associated with it. Your treatment specialist will use energy focused beneath the skin to destroy sweat glands in the armpits, thus eradicating the need for deodorants, or more severe methods of gland removal such as surgery.
One of our physicians will first numb your underarms with a special solution. This ensures your comfort during the rest of the procedure. Next, a Coolspa MiraDry treatment specialist will use a handheld medical device to apply gentle yet potent waves of electromagnetic energy that heat the sweat glands, destroying them through a process called thermolysis, or death-by-heat.
MiraDry in Manhattan is one of the most effective treatments for excess underarm sweating and axillary hyperhidrosis on the market today. You might be concerned that you need your sweat glands, but luckily the body has so many of them that it will continue to sweat normally and not miss those glands, specifically in the armpit area. (Each armpit represents only 1% of body area, so treating the armpits only reduces overall sweating by 2%.).
Miradry is one procedure that has practically no downtime. Patients can return to their normal routines within 24 hours of treatment, although some swelling (and possibly discomfort) will be present. If you are planning to engage in rigorous exercise, however, it’s best to wait 2-3 days. This recovery is made even easier with the addition of a long-acting numbing agent called Exparel. You will be able to discuss with the doctor whether adding Exparel may be right for you.
No. Fortunately, your underarms make up only about 2% of your body's total sweat glands and losing them will not increase sweat production in other areas of your body. Your body's natural temperature control will also not be effected.
