The permanent sweat treatment you’ve been searching for is finally here! And the best part of all? It’s natural, safe, and surgery-free. miraDry is the latest, most effective way to stop sweat in Toronto.
Over-sweating is a significant issue affecting millions of people worldwide, but many people shy away from discussing the topic due to embarrassment. Excessive sweating of the armpits (axilla), hands, or feet is medically known as hyperhidrosis. The condition often has no identifiable cause, making it all the more frustrating to treat.
People who don’t experience daily frustration from this condition may not understand how underarm sweat could stop someone from being social or even raising a hand at school or work. But when you’re always worried about sweat stains and odour, it’s not unusual to go to desperate lengths to appear dry. If this sounds familiar, you know that excessive sweat takes a significant toll on confidence.
Chances are you’ve already exhausted the web looking for sweat treatments. If you’re tired of ruined clothes and feeling self-conscious, we’re here to help.
Excessive Sweating Treatment in Toronto
Sovereign Skin brought Toronto clients this cure for sweat as soon as it became available on the market. We’ve outlined 5 of the most common sweat solutions that miss the mark as well as all you need to know about our new favourite.
miraDry is a non-invasive Toronto sweat treatment that offers permanent results without toxins, medications, injections, or surgery.
1. Hiding from the world is not a sweat treatment
Even though it’s a common problem, sweating can make you feel bad about yourself, leading you to hide out from social situations. Attending a barbecue, dance, or dinner in the summer sounds less appealing if you know that you’ll be keeping your arms glued to your sides all night.
Avoiding social situations and high-fives in public might hide your sweat, but it doesn’t address the root of the problem. Not to mention that missing out on events and continually worrying about your appearance can be a considerable drag. No need to hide! Call us today to ask about miraDry.
2. It’s time to free your wardrobe
Have you ever thought about taking off your blazer at work, only to rethink it at the last minute? Do you stick with white tops because darks and colours show wetness? It can be stressful to select clothing based on your sweat stains. Limiting your wardrobe, layering excessively, and choosing natural fabrics are just some of the suggestions you’ve probably already tried.
Although wearing natural fabrics and adding layers may keep you more comfortable in the moment, they don’t treat the underlying issue.
3. Is padding an effective sweat treatment?
4. What you need to know about prescription antiperspirant
Antiperspirants work by targeting underarm sweat glands, while deodorants mask odours caused by sweat mixed with bacteria. For hyperhidrosis sufferers, over-the-counter antiperspirants and deodorant often aren’t enough. Stronger products that do help require a prescription, are more expensive, and contain higher levels of aluminum and other medications.
Although these prescription products can help treat the symptoms, you may be worried about the long-term effects of aluminum over time. Because prescription antiperspirant isn’t a permanent solution, costs also add up over time.
5. Most medical treatments don’t measure up
Because of the prevalence of excessive sweating, scientists have been motivated to innovate medical solutions to the problem. Here are the most common sweat treatments that patients try:
There’s no specific medication to treat hyperhidrosis. But anticholinergic drugs like Ditropan, beta-blockers, and anti-depressants have shown some success in reducing sweat. However, these drugs come with possible systemic and adverse side effects. And they don’t permanently stop sweating.
Botulinum Toxin Type Injections
Neuromodulator can reduce sweating by blocking the signals to your sweat glands. The downside is that this sweat treatment lasts only 4 to 6 months and can be costly.
ETS surgery (endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy) severs the nerves that activate sweat glands. This invasive surgery poses some risks, leaves scars, and entails an uncomfortable recovery.
Why miraDry is the most effective sweat treatment in 2019
If you’ve experienced these 5 signs that it’s time for a better solution to sweating, you’re ready to learn about our latest laser therapy.
miraDry® is an advanced, non-invasive procedure that permanently reduces underarm sweating. Using electromagnetic, microwave energy, your physician can eliminate the sweat glands that are causing your frustration. The eccrine and apocrine glands under your arms account for only 2% of your body’s sweat glands. This means that destroying them won’t stop your body from cooling itself through normal sweating.
Your physician will use a Health Canada-approved device that uses controlled, non-ablative energy to destroy sweat glands. It’s a precise, targeted treatment that leaves the surrounding skin and tissue safely untouched.
Instant and Permanent
Rather than treatments that require repeats every few months or even daily, this sweat treatment is lasting. The targeted sweat glands don’t regenerate. Most miraDry patients see an 82% reduction in sweat production after 2 sessions, and some patients need only one session to notice a significant improvement right away.
Here are some other benefits to miraDry in Toronto:
- It’s a 1-hour treatment that takes place in-office.
- Numbing cream is used, and a local anaesthetic is administered to keep you comfortable.
- There’s minimal downtime, so you can resume most regular activities right away.
- It’s completely non-toxic and chemical-free.
- 90% of patients are satisfied with the permanent changes they see.
- Anyone can be a candidate as long as they’re over 18 and suffering from excessive sweat.
- miraDry also stops odour and armpit hair growth!
If you want to avoid ever resorting to temporary fixes again, miraDry could be the solution that you’re seeking. With a permanent reduction in sweat, you can stop avoiding social interactions and dive into career or personal interactions with new confidence.
