Much like pretty much anyone who wears deodorant or anti-perspirant, I’m not very fond of my own underarm sweat — or odor, or hair. And although I don’t have hyperhidrosis, making the switch to natural deo (aka the type that doesn’t block sweat, and sometimes the scent if we’re being honest) a few years ago solidified my sentiments.
So instead of complaining to myself day in and day out, I decided to take the plunge and get Miradry.
“Miradry is a non-invasive, long-lasting treatment for excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, of the underarms,” explains Dr. Blair Murphy-Rose, the fab New York City-based board-certified dermatologist queen who performed my treatment. “We use thermal energy to deliver heat under the skin and destroy unwanted sweat glands. It also eliminates the glands contributing to body odor and many hair follicles — causing a reduction in body odor and underarm hair growth, respectively. It is a very effective solution for underarm sweating. The treatment has been clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction and 89% odor reduction.”
