miraDry® Southern Colorado – Pueblo
Primary axillary hyperhidrosis is a medical condition in which more underarm sweat is produced than is needed to cool the body. Millions of Americans suffer from excessive underarm sweat, and often suffer silently—ashamed, frustrated and embarrassed because excessive underarm sweat can interfere with many aspects of everyday life.
For many, this condition is a constant struggle that causes anxiety at work, embarrassment in relationships and social settings, and avoidance of leisure activities.
Now there’s a lasting solution that can make embarrassing underarm sweat a thing of the past.
Dr. Rina Shinn is one of the first physicians in the U.S. to offer the miraDry® Procedure, a new treatment option that provides a safe and lasting solution for excessive underarm sweat.
The miraDry procedure delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the area under the arm and heats and eliminates the sweat glands. Since sweat glands do not regenerate, results are lasting.
But wait, isn’t sweating healthy? Don’t I need this sweat glands to safely help my body cool down?
This is a very understandable and common question.
The good news is that under arm sweat glands comprise only about 2% of all the sweat glands you have in your body. So eliminating that small amount of sweat glands will not impact your body’s ability to remove toxins and control temperature by sweating.
The procedure is non-invasive, takes approximately one hour and has little to no downtime, so patients can go about their normal routines after treatment.
Two procedures are required, spaced 3 months apart, to obtain the best results.
