November is Hyperhidrosis Awareness Month and we’ve been catching up with some of our past patients who underwent miraDry to treat excessive sweating to find out what life has been like since their treatment.
The message for the 2020 awareness campaign is that excessive, uncontrollable sweating is a serious medical condition warranting serious attention. Hyperhidrosis affects 8.8% of the population between 18 and 39 and its impact can be huge; from avoiding work or social situations due to embarrassment through to causing anxiety and depression in sufferers.
3 reasons why miraDry will change your life
- Once the sweat glands have been eliminated, they don’t come back: miraDry permanently destroys the sweat glands under your arms with microwave energy without damaging the surrounding tissue or skin.
- Its results are immediate: you don’t have to wait weeks or months to see the results. You’ll feel the difference immediately after.
- It’s life-changing: excessive sweating can affect personal and romantic relationships, undermine your confidence at work and even influence what leisure activities you can do. The freedom from the constant stress caused by hyperhidrosis is described as life-changing by patients who have undergone miraDry.
“miraDry gave me the career I’ve always wanted”
“Going to meetings or interviews was generally a battle of not over-sweating, causing embarrassment. I found myself carrying a back-up top in my car and thinking it’s normal. Well, it isn’t normal and, yes, it was bad and this isn’t an exaggeration. After reading a load of positive reviews about miraDry and finding out it’s approved and safe, I went ahead with it, took the plunge and booked it in.
“And I can happily confirm it works. It actually works. Guys and girls, professionals alike, don’t stick to putting tissue in your tops or having a spare wardrobe in your car, there is a solution. I’m now in the job of my dreams and miraDry has given me that extra cushion of confidence to perform as well as I do.”
“miraDry gave me the wedding of my dreams”
“I can’t remember a time when underarm sweating didn’t affect my life. I would never, ever have worn white because I felt so insecure about my sweat problem. It all came to a head when I decided to get married in Mexico and I knew that I would not be able to survive the 30C heat and would have to consider the style of dress I was going to wear very carefully to disguise the patches.
“After miraDry, the sweating diminished significantly, to the point where I only feel a little bit of wetness on really hot days — and I don’t even need deodorant to fend off the smell, because there isn’t any! To say that miraDry has changed my life is an understatement. In fact, quite soon after the treatment I got a promotion and I feel that because I got over my insecurities, I was able to really fulfil my potential at work, no longer dreading presentations and just taking that unnecessary pressure off myself.”
