Pune: SkinCity Postgraduate Institute of Dermatology has brought the miraDry microwave technology to India for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis, a condition in which the underarm sweat glands are overactive, producing much more sweat than is needed to cool the body.
“This is a very safe, FDA approved, nonsurgical procedure. This technology is nothing less than a miracle for sufferers of axillary hyperhidrosis,” said Dr Niteen V Dhepe, medical director, SkinCity Postgraduate Institute of Dermatology, Pune.
Excessive underarm sweating and odour is one of the most disturbing conditions for working professionals. It is estimated that 3-5 per cent of the population are silent sufferers with no relief in sight. Sweat and stains in under arms reduce confidence, affect relationships and make the person depressed.
“MiraDry uses microwave technology, a perfect nonsurgical permanent solution for axillary sweat. Just one or two treatments of one hour each, three months apart can make one free of sweat forever,” said Dr Dhepe.
According to Dr Dhepe, the procedure uses precisely controlled energy to eliminate underarm sweat glands. Because the sweat glands don’t grow back once eliminated, the results are dramatic and lasting.
