If you’ve been experiencing excessive sweating, then you no longer have to worry about it as there are treatment options which are available to deal with it. MiraDry is one of the popular treatment options. For all those who have been suffering from axillary hyperhidrosis, Miradry is the treatment to opt for it. It helps to treat and manage the condition. Apart from that botox is another treatment which helps to deal with the problem. Here is what both the treatments have to offer.
How does botox help?
It is very rare knowledge that botox can help to treat and manage the primary axillary hyperhidrosis by reducing the activity of the muscles and the glands into which they are injected. By injecting botox into the sweat gland, it essentially paralyzes it and reduces its activity significantly. The Botox works by blocking the nerves which control the sweat glands and disrupt their signalling pathway which results in less sweating. It is an approved treatment for hyperhidrosis, along with the removal of wrinkles and smoothening. The success rate of this treatment is 80%. The treatment typically lasts around 10-20 minutes and doesn’t cause a lot of discomforts.
What is MiraDry and how does it help?
MiraDry is one of the best options for treating primary axillary hyperhidrosis in the underarms. It is a non-invasive treatment which delivers electromagnetic energy to the underarms which help in the elimination of the sweat glands that are locked in the area. Its aim is to destroy these sweat glands, so once they are removed there is no chance of them coming back. This causes a great reduction in the sweat produced by the underarms. Once the sweat glands present in the underarms have been destroyed, it will lower the bodies sweat gland count by 2%, hence, there will not be any negative impact on your body’s sweating overall. Before the treatment, a numbing agent will be injected to avoid any discomfort. The treatment should be repeated twice with a gap of 3 months for best results.
What are the different areas which can be treated?
Botox can be used to treat excessive sweating in various areas like the sole of the feet, forehead, underarms, groin and scalp. Whereas, MiraDry is a great option for underarms and is mainly used in that region only.
How long does it take to see an effect?
Within the first few days of the Botox treatment, you will be able to notice a reduction in sweating. It takes about a week to ten days to see the full results. In case of MiraDry, you will notice that there is an immediate decrease in the sweating after the treatment has been completed and you will be able to see the results in their entirety in the next few days with a large reduction in sweat production.
