Choosing the Miradry treatment for underarm sweating? Los Angeles plastic surgeon

Why would someone chose the MiraDry system for underarm sweating?

Underarm sweating can cause significant embarrassment and physical anxiety in patients who have uncontrolled sweating that does not depend on the core body temperature of the temperature of the environment in a room.  Embarrassments, social anxiety, and inability to perform normal functions can interfere with daily activities.  The initial use of antiperspirants may be overwhelmed by the degree of underarm sweating causing the patient to have a condition that is commonly known as axillary hyperhidrosis or excessive underarm sweating.  The MiraDry system has been developed in the United States and is FDA approved for the treatment of a specific condition known as underarm sweating or axillary hyperhidrosis.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic plastic surgery and the management of hyperhidrosis in healthy adult men and women.  If you have embarrassing underarm sweating and cannot control with normal means, or even with regular therapy such as Botox injections, the MiraDry system can be applied to your armpits in order to reduce the underarm sweating and reduce the sweat glands that are abnormally causing you to perspire.  As a contrary to what many people believe, controlling underarm sweating with the MiraDry system does not affect her ability to sweat normally in other parts of your body nor does it interfere with the normal body regulation of sweating or regulation of body temperature. 


If you have questions about the MiraDry system in Los Angeles, Dr. Karamanoukian performs treatments in both Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.  He is available for hyperhidrosis consultation in Los Angeles by appointment.  Please call our plastic surgery patient care coordinator at 310-998-5533 in order to schedule a consultation for underarm sweating.  Dr. Karamanoukian can also go over basic pre and postoperative regimen and your anticipated recovery.
