The Vein and Skin Center of Hawaii is now offering the innovative miraDry, which is a procedure that eliminates underarm sweating and odor in as little as one treatment. This clinically proven, FDA-approved option is only available in Hawaii at the Vein and Skin Center of Hawaii, which is now taking appointments for this revolutionary treatment.
Unwanted underarm sweating is something almost everyone experiences, regardless of outdoor or indoor climate. “With miraDry, patients can have a significant, permanent reduction in underarm sweat and odor immediately,” said Dr. W.Y. Chung MD, founder and chief medical officer of the Vein and Skin Center of Hawaii. “This is a non-invasive solution to underarm sweating. Since miraDry works immediately, the patient’s life is transformed the day of the procedure.”
Many of the current treatments for unwanted or excessive underarm perspiration and odor are temporary and might not be for everyone. Many have limitations and often require ongoing therapy with either daily medicines, or intermittent procedures.
“The miraDry procedure works by delivering precisely controlled heat-based energy to safely remove sweat and odor glands that reside in the underarms, stopping sweat and no longer requiring the use of deodorants or antiperspirants to cover up sweat and odor,” Dr. Chung said. “The procedure is easy and has little to no down-time. A small amount of local anesthetic is used to insure maximum comfort, and most patients are able to go back to work that same day and standard routines and exercise can be resumed within a few days of the treatment.”
Although originally developed to address patients with excessive underarm sweating, most people deal with the need to use chemical antiperspirants or fragranced deodorants and have to live with varying degrees of underarm sweat that ultimately result in increased dry cleaning bills, stained clothing or avoidance of particular fabrics. “This changes that scenario and makes it so you can feel clean and fresh at all times, plus you no longer have to avoid silks, satins, or any article of clothing,” Dr. Chung said.
The Vein and Skin Center of Hawaii is taking appointments now. Patients should call (808) 949-8346 to reserve their spot. Those who spend lots of time in the sun, engage in outdoor activities and manage busy work schedules are encouraged to contact Dr. Chung to learn more about miraDry.
