What is Sweat Reduction?
Though sweating is a completely natural bodily function that serves to cool our body when we need it, excessive sweating can stain our clothes and cause unnecessary embarrassment. This abundance of sweating is a condition known as hyperhidrosis. If this often happens to you, our staff at NoSweat Fort Wayne offers an advanced treatment called miraDry that can safely and effectively reduce the size of sweat and odor glands in the underarms. By doing so, we are able to eliminate these symptoms for patients in Fort Wayne, IN and surrounding areas, allowing them to go about their day without having to worry about sweaty armpits ruining their clothes and confidence. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Philip Rettenmaier and learn more about sweat reduction.
"I've been going to Dr. Rettenmeir for several years now for tattoo removal. (I can't seem to learn my lesson about tattooing or microblading my brows.) Each time I see him, he is not just professional, but very caring. He is also helping me improve a raised scar on my face with the Opus Fractional Plasma device. This device has made dramatic changes to the appearance of my scar that it's almost gone. I definitely recommend seeing Dr. Rettenmeir for tattoo removal and scar issues."- A.D. / Google / Oct 11, 2021

How Does MiraDry Work?
Our sweat reduction treatment using miraDry is completely noninvasive and performed within about an hour at our Fort Wayne, IN facility. First, we'll mark the designated treatment sites. Once this is complete, a member of our team will administer a topical anesthetic to help you remain comfortable throughout your procedure. Then, the miraDry handpiece will be slowly glided over the treatment area while it uses gentle suction to lift the sweat glands, bringing them closer to the device. Thermal energy within the device targets each of these individual sweat glands without affecting the surface of your skin. There is very little downtime or recovery with miraDry; however, we do ask you to avoid exercise for a few days to allow the sweat glands to properly heal. Your underarm may be slightly red, tingly, numb, and/or swollen after your treatment and should subside within a few hours. Additionally, the decline in perspiration will be noticeable immediately. We may recommend a second miraDry session about two months after the first treatment for optimal results. The eliminated sweat glands will not be regenerated, which makes the results of this procedure permanent.
Excessive sweating caused by hyperhidrosis is not only embarrassing but can be inconvenient. It can ruin clothes and cause people to have to apply copious amounts of deodorant or even buy special antiperspirants. Thanks to miraDry, these can be problems of the past. Contact NoSweat Fort Wayne today to discuss whether or not this treatment may be right for you. Dr. Rettenmaier and the rest of our experienced staff in Fort Wayne, IN are always willing to answer any of your questions and find a treatment method that works for your body.
