Armpit sweat gland removal in Los Angeles is a simple procedure that involves the destruction of the sweat glands through microwave technology. But many of our clients are wondering whether the sweat glands will grow back.
Armpit Sweat Removal in Los Angeles to Treat Underarm Sweating
MiraDry underarm sweating treatment is more precise. And it does not involve surgical tools. With that in mind, it reduces infection risks. In that way, recovery is faster. The result is permanent. Although it is a non-invasive treatment, it still requires that application of a numbing agent. It will help in minimizing the discomfort.
As to the side effects, you may experience bruising and swelling. However, all symptoms will be resolved within one to two weeks. Once destroyed, sweat glands will not regrow or regenerate. In that case, this type of treatment is considered permanent.
Should I Stop Wearing Antiperspirant
You can stop wearing antiperspirant after undergoing this procedure. Antiperspirant is the most popular solution for underarm sweating. However, it is not always effective. Furthermore, some antiperspirants will make your armpit stink. But you can ask your dermatologist to prescribe you with antiperspirant that contains aluminum zirconium and aluminum chloride.
Unfortunately, even with antiperspirants, you will still get sweat marks if there is too much sweating. If everything has failed, try MiraDry. It is one of the most effective treatments for excessive underarm sweating that can permanently resolve this issue.
The great thing about this treatment is that it only involves a hand-held device. What it does is that it inactivates odor glands and sweat. It delivers electromagnetic energy to destroy sweat glands but it protects the upper part of your skin.
Is It Painful
Unlike a surgical procedure that removes sweat glands, MiraDry uses microwave technology. It does not involve any incision. In that case, there is no downtime here. You can go back to work the day after the procedure. There is no inflammation to be expected as the procedure does not require an incision. However, as the local anesthesia’s effects wear off, you may feel some pain. But it is normal. And the pain or swelling may go away after a few days.
After undergoing this treatment, you may require subsequent treatment. But it has to be three months apart. You may need to undergo a maximum of three sessions. This will completely destroy the armpit sweat glands. However, after the first treatment, you will notice a huge difference in your condition.
What is the Preparation for the Treatment
You will have to remove underarm hair days before the procedure. During the procedure, the small hair growth will help in identifying the area that requires treatment. The session will last up to 75 minutes. It depends on your situation though. Our specialist will tell you about the expected effects of the procedure. As mentioned, you may experience swelling and redness. These effects may also last up for weeks.
