The idea of traveling for plastic surgery can be tempting. But, as Virginia Torres discusses in this post, medical tourism is something to research first!
miraDry is an FDA approved non-invasive technology used to reduce underarm sweat and odor. This technology has shown to dramatically decrease sweating and odor in the underarm region with one treatment. The miraDry system delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the region with the sweat glands and has the potential to remove those sweat glands. The procedure can be done with local anesthesia and you can expect minimal to no downtime.
Tumescent anesthesia is typically used, enabling treatment at the highest energy level throughout the axillary region. This makes the procedure quite comfortable for most patients and may also yield a better result. Over the counter pain medicines and ice packs are useful post-procedure. The goal is to eliminate the need for antiperspirants, toxins, and surgery with one treatment.
