QUESTION

Don’t I need sweat glands?

ANSWER BY DR. GERRISH

Not in your armpits! You are born with approximately 2 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. After your miraDry ® treatment you will experience the many benefits of dry underarms, and you will continue to perspire normally elsewhere.

QUESTION

What is the miraDry© procedure like?

ANSWER BY DR. GERRISH

You will be in a reclined position for about one hour. Dr. Gerrish has developed a signature numbing protocol that leaves you very comfortable. You aren’t likely to feel anything during the treatment since your underarms will be numbed prior to treatment. After treatment, you may experience swelling, soreness, tingling, and numbness in the treated area. These sensations typically clear-up within a few days to a few weeks.

QUESTION

How does miraDry© work?

ANSWER BY DR. GERRISH

The miraDry system uses proprietary miraWave energy that targets and destroys sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are destroyed they do not grow back so that means once they are gone, they are gone for good.

QUESTION

What results can I expect with miraDry©?

 

ANSWER

You can expect to have an immediate reduction in your sweat. Sweat glands don’t grow back so you should experience results that last. The amount of sweat reduction you desire should be discussed with your miraDry© physician. As with any treatment, the results may vary from person to person.

For as long as I can remember, I have had to worry about extreme perspiration on a daily basis. Social situations are especially stressful, and I only wear certain colors and styles of tops due to my hyperhidrosis. Today I saw Dr. Gerrish for miraDry, and it was an excellent experience. Dr. Gerrish is extremely knowledgeable and puts you at ease right away. His staff, couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. The procedure consisted of 2 steps – numbing the underarms and then applying the miraDry device. The numbing process was so easy, and I felt maybe one or two small pinches and that was it. Once the underarms were numbed, the miraDrydevice was applied as a series of short pulses. I did not feel any heat or pain during this phase at all. At the end of the treatment, Dr. Gerrish discussed post-care with me, and I began icing the area. This evening, I have minimal swelling and little to no pain. I am very excited about my results, and it will be a huge relief not to worry or be embarrassed by my sweating.

I would highly recommend Dr. Gerrish and his staff for this procedure!
