miraDry® in Mountain View
Sweating is a natural and necessary body function. It can also be an embarrassing condition that makes an individual feel self-conscious, especially if you experience excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis. At The Menkes Clinic and Surgery Center in Mountain View, CA, our professional dermatology team understands skin and offers life-enhancing treatments in medical, surgical, laser, and cosmetic dermatology.
Dr. Andrew Menkes and his colleague, Dr. Lillian Soohoo, are pleased to offer a comprehensive array of advanced dermatologic care, including a new treatment called miraDry, to eliminate sweat in the underarms.
How miraDry Works
miraDry is a cosmetic, non-invasive treatment that has been cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It delivers focused energy to the dermal fat area where nearly all sweat glands are located. It safely and permanently eliminates the odor-causing and unneeded sweat glands through precisely controlled heat. Once the glands are destroyed, they do not regenerate, so patients enjoy permanent results.
What to Expect from Treatment
The miraDry treatment takes about an hour to complete. You will be placed in a reclined position and the underarms will be numbed with a topical anesthetic, so you will experience little to no discomfort or pain. After treatment, you may experience soreness, numbness, tingling, and some swelling in the area. These effects typically resolve within a few days to a couple of weeks.
Benefits of miraDry
