Help for excessively sweaty armpits in Melbourne - Excessive armpit sweating treatment

Feel The Freedom

Sweaty armpits or axillary hyperhidrosis involves constant or excessive sweating of the underarms. This can lead some sufferers to shower throughout the day in an effort to avoid body odour and embarrassment. Constant wet patches under the arms often result in social avoidance and the necessity for some sufferers to frequently change their clothing.

Excessively sweaty underarms can hold sufferers back from enjoying everyday activities that others take for granted. A night out with friends can lead to worrying about whether sweating is going to spoil their evening. Want to profuse underarms sweating and stop underarm sweat contact us today.

MiraDry treatment for Sweaty Underarms in Melbourne - Stop excessive sweating underarms

MiraDry has been used extensively in the USA, across Asia and New Zealand with approval from the FDA (USA) in 2011, and TGA (Australia) in June 2014. Approval from such highly regarded sources has given North Western Vascular Surgery the confidence to introduce this non-invasive therapy as an alternative to ETS for sweaty underarms in Melbourne.

Here at North Western Vascular Surgery, we are proud to be Melbourne's first fully accredited MiraDry practice and the leaders in providing MiraDry treatment. MiraDry dramatically reduces the sweat glands under the arms through the use of microwave energy which is a form of electromagnetic energy. Sweat glands do not regenerate, so once destroyed, treatment is long lasting. A dramatic reduction in sweating and body odour is immediately noticed after treatment.

MiraDry can be performed on-site at our suites in Melbourne with little or no downtime required. On the day of treatment, no fasting is required, and there is minimal preparation with shaving of the underarms required three days before treatment. Our fully accredited practitioner will commence treatment by placing a temporary tattoo under the arms. Local anaesthetic and saline are then injected into the underarms to improve comfort. Treatment with multiple placements of the MiraDry device is performed and takes approximately one and a half hours.

Axillary injections (Botulinum) for sweaty armpits are no longer offered at North Western Vascular Surgery, as this is a short term solution, temporarily debilitating the sweat glands with frequent treatments required every three to four months. We, therefore, recommend one MiraDry treatment on Level 5 for optimal, long-lasting results. Want to profuse underarms sweating and stop underarm sweat contact us today.

Why do I sweat so much?

If you are sweating excessively from your armpits, you may have a condition called axillary hyperhidrosis. This means that your sympathetic nervous system is excessively stimulating your sweat glands. Everyone sweats sometimes, but people with hyperhidrosis sweat profusely for no reason.
There are no other underlying disorders in virtually all cases, but hyperhidrosis can have a major impact on a person’s confidence and anxiety levels.

What is miraDry?

The miraDry procedure is a fast and non-invasive solution that provides lasting results for reducing excessive underarm sweat. When the miraDry handpiece is placed on the underarm, it delivers a precise controlled energy to the sweat glands and eliminates them in a non-invasive way. Sweat glands won’t grow back, so you can expect dramatic and long-lasting results.

Don’t I need my armpit sweat glands?

Your underarms only contain about 2% of your body’s sweat glands, so eliminating them will not stop your body from its natural cooling process.

Is miraDry surgery?

This procedure does not involve any surgical cuts or incisions. Each treatment is customized for the person’s underarm area. You will receive local anesthesia to remain comfortable during the process. Most people need two procedures spaced at three months apart to achieve the best results.

Is there any downtime?

Downtime after miraDry is minimal to non-existent. You may take an over-the-counter pain medication and use ice packs for a few days if you are experiencing some pain or discomfort. You can return to work right away and start exercising again in a few days.

Does miraDry really work?

Most patients see dramatic results, and the average person sees a sweat reduction of 86%. Results will vary, but you should see some reduction immediately after the procedure.

Are there any side effects?

Many patients experience some localized soreness and/or swelling. This should clear within a few weeks. Less commonly, patients may experience short-term altered sensation in the skin of the upper arms and underarms.

How long do results last?

Since the sweat glands do not regenerate, miraDry results are long-lasting.

Is miraDry right for everyone?

If you are suffering from excessively sweaty armpits, you are probably a good candidate for miraDry. Give us a call to schedule a consultation.
