Summer is almost upon us and we’re all about to get a little sweaty! Whether you are a seasoned athlete, a gym rat, a beach goer, a walker or a gardner, you know that summer is a time of sunscreen and getting a little hot under the collar. We’re all used to “glowing” or plain old sweating it out, but for some, summer – and even the less steam seasons, is a time of extreme stress or anxiety. If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, you know what we’re talking about here. Even in a moderate climate (inside or outside), you may be sweating through all of your clothing on a daily basis.
- Do you constantly have sweat rings under your arms?
- Are you always layering your clothing with undershirts or camisoles to absorb the sweat and preserve your clothing?
- Are you constantly frustrated by ruining nice shirts and other clothing?
- Does the excess sweating draw embarrassing attention?
- Does excess sweating stress you out?
Hyperhidrosis can cause more stress than you imagine. While you may be used to it, or used to coping with it, constantly applying antiperspirant or bringing and extra change of clothes or a shirt with you everywhere, you will be shocked at how much stress is lifted if you get this condition treated properly by a cosmetic dermatologist.
If you have hyperhidrosis, which affects both men and women, there is a new treatment available called miraDry. If you haven’t been formally diagnosed with hyperhidrosis, it’s a condition where you literally have too many sweat glands, typically in your underarm. miraDry actually eliminates excess sweat glands through a noninvasive procedure which yields almost immediate results. It’s a quick procedure that can take place in the cosmetic dermatologist’s office and typically there is minimal to no downtime involved. The results are lasting because the sweat glands don’t come back and while there is sometimes some soreness and minimal swelling, you’ll be amazed at how easy the solution to your aggravating excessive sweating actually is.
So if you’re ready to no longer be embarrassed about sweating so much – if you’re ready to stop wearing so many layers and to stop bringing a change of clothes everywhere you go – if you’re ready to let go of the stress of hyperhidrosis, then consider miraDry and experience summer in a whole new way!
