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.

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.
Sweat Reduction FAQ
Does sweat reduction treatment with miraDry hurt?
No, it doesn’t. Most patients experience little to no discomfort. Before we begin, we will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area and keep you comfortable. After treatment, some patients may have mild soreness, bruising, or swelling in the treated area, but this typically only lasts a couple of days.
Is miraDry safe?
Yes, it is. The miraDry treatment was cleared by the FDA in 2011 as safe with little to no risk of complications.
How long does miraDry treatment last?
miraDry is a long-lasting solution to excessive sweating. Once the sweat glands are treated, they don’t come back, giving results that can last indefinitely.
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.
