How does the MiraDry system work? Board certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles - Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian

The MiraDry system controls a very difficult problem known as axillary hyperhidrosis.  Teenagers and adults who have hyperhidrosis often complain that excessive sweating compromises their ability to perform normally during the day and night.  Uncontrolled sweating can contribute to social impairment as well as physically limits normal activities such as exercise, work, and school.  Regardless of the room temperature, axillary hyperhidrosis remains uncontrolled and unregulated despite hot or cool room temperatures.  This leads to an unregulated production of sweat that impairs normal activity.  The MiraDry system was designed to remove unwanted and abnormal sweat glands in the armpits.  A computer generated heat source with a surface cooling device is placed on to the axillary skin and use to eliminate and destroy the abnormal sweat glands.  In doing so, the patient notes an immediate and controlled improvement in sweat production.  The patients who have axillary hyperhidrosis can benefit from this amazing technology that is FDA approved and safe for long term use.  The patients will likely need one treatment, followed by an interval followup procedure to obtain maximal benefit.  Please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery office to schedule a consultation for hyperhidrosis in the Los Angeles area.  Our patient care coordinator can be reached at 310-998-5533.
