Dr. Jose Rios, a plastic surgeon in  Lombard, IL. discusses miraDry®, the innovative treatment for excessive sweating.

As a plastic surgeon, as well as a pretty impressive sweater myself, I understand why Lombard patients who struggle with hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, are so thrilled to learn that there is finally a solution to their problem: miraDry.

Let’s break down this innovative non-surgical treatment:

  • Who is a good candidate? On Facebook and in a recent newsletter, I shared a few things only those who sweat excessively have in common, including avoiding light clothing, trying every deodorant and antiperspirant on the shelf, and scoffing at the phrase “prescription strength.” If this sounds like you, miraDry is for you.
  • What is it? It’s an FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment that permanently eliminates underarm sweat and odor. During the treatment, controlled electromagnetic energy permanently heats and destroys sweat and odor glands. The treatment is made comfortable with the help of numbing injections and cooling we apply to the skin. The treatment takes only about an hour and requires little to no downtime.
  • Why are we confident in the results? Results are achieved immediately and typically reduce sweating by approximately 80%. Most patients are completely satisfied after a single treatment, but some require 2 for best results. You’ll be ready to go to the gym wearing light gray in no time ― OK maybe not, but you get the point.
