miraDry® Sweat Treatment Toronto
Many people just like you can’t remember the last time they felt that kind of freedom because of excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis. This embarrassing problem is super common, yet it causes people to hide and shrink back in life. Sweat treatment in Toronto has just gone to a whole new level with miraDry®, and at the Dr. Torgerson Clinic, we’re so excited about it, we can hardly wait to tell you.

We’re pleased to provide the very best proven technology and devices so that every client can have their needs met and reach their aesthetic goals on their terms. When something incredibly effective comes along that can change the lives of our valued patients, we make a point of bringing that technology to you.

With recent advancements in laser technology, this method of improving tissues on a cellular level without even breaking the skin is fast becoming the top non-surgical way to target a wide variety of issues. Results are usually fast and measurable, and many laser treatments allow patients to comfortably leave the office with no discomfort while powerful changes are taking place to revitalize their appearance for weeks after. Unlike some laser technology, this one is completely safe for coloured, darker skin tones and all shades of hair.

Everyone tired of the daily frustration, ruined clothes, and feeling held back, get ready! We’re going to tell you about a treatment that can change your life.
miraDry® Toronto: What is it, and how does it treat sweating?
You can feel clean and dry all day long, finally. Let’s take a closer look at why this works. The miraDry® system is a type of non-ablative laser that targets energy directly to sweat and odour glands in the axilla (armpit). Once they’ve been destroyed, they’re gone for good and can no longer produce sweat or body odour – ever.
In the armpit, the glands which cause perspiration and odour (apocrine and eccrine) are located at the dermal fat layer under your skin. 60°C is the temperature required to ensure effective and lasting shut down of those glands. miraDry® has a patented, approved technology called miraWave that delivers thermal waves to this precise layer and nowhere else, destroying glands without affecting the surrounding tissue. 5.8 GHz of thermal energy becomes concentrated, as it is reflected at the dermal fat intersection in a focal energy zone that is impressively specific. Regardless of your hair or skin colour, skin type or thickness, this system can safely direct energy specifically to the glands, destroying them. In addition, hydroceramic cooling is simultaneously applied to the skin to manage and balance skin comfort and safety.
How long does the hyperhidrosis treatment take?
You’ll receive your treatment in our bright, comfortable cosmetic clinic in beautiful Yorkville, Toronto. Sweat treatment begins with gently cleansing the area while you recline comfortably. Your armpit skin will receive a topical numbing agent and be carefully marked with dots to indicate strategic coverage points. Then a non-invasive handheld device will be applied to the skin and, under your practitioner’s control, send electromagnetic energy through the skin to the exact gland location. You may feel a little suction, but don’t worry, it’s not unpleasant. You can’t perceive the heat delivered, but it shuts down the glands immediately.
miraDry® is a relatively fast, hour-long procedure, and patients can go back to work or regular activities right away. You heard that right! No healing time, pain, bruising, incisions, or injections. That means that busy professionals can often schedule their session conveniently during a lunch break or before or after work. Imagine a single appointment that can change your wardrobe, lifestyle, and self-esteem.
What can miraDry® not do?
This technology is currently approved for underarm-specific primary hyperhidrosis. That means you can have your underarm area effectively treated, but it will not affect other regions of the body.
What are the drawbacks of this treatment?
There aren’t many drawbacks besides the current limitation to specific underarm use. Toronto sweat treatment has traditionally been carried out with neuromodulator injections, prescription medications, and even surgery. These methods involve introducing chemicals or toxins to the body that can have a systemic effect or the tissue trauma, recovery time, and scars associated with surgery. Because this is a non-invasive and drug-free treatment, there are no medication side effects and no incisions or risks of infection and scarring. Additionally, this solution doesn’t require a prescription, making it more accessible than previous options.
You may wonder if destroying sweat glands leaves your body unable to function naturally, sweat, or regulate temperature. Rest assured that the sweat glands in your armpits account for less than 2% of the sweat glands on your body, so their elimination means all benefits and no effect whatsoever on your body temperature regulation.
Are the results permanent?
Yes, they are. The eliminated glands are eventually cleared away by your body’s natural waste systems, and you will not grow new ones in their place. While the treatment may not reach every individual gland in one session, there will be a measurable difference almost immediately. And this just gets better over time. In rare cases, two treatments can be scheduled to take care of any remaining perspiration.
BONUS* An amazing perk related to Toronto sweat treatment with miraDry® is that hair follicles are also destroyed in the heat target area. That’s not the focus of the treatment, of course, but our patients aren’t complaining! Imagine you no longer have underarm wetness interfering with your personal comfort, career, and social life, but also you smell better and your underarm hair is gone. No more shaving, no more waxing! Sound like a miracle? miraDry®really is that exciting. We weren’t kidding.
