MIRADRY® FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING
Dermatology, Laser & Surgery of Carnegie Hill can provide relief for hyperhidrosis in NYC. Hyperhidrosis is a common medical condition affecting over 37 million people in the country. Otherwise known as excessive sweating, hyperhidrosis can make many patients feel embarrassment, anxiousness, or other negative feelings from their condition. The reason many patients feel embarrassed from hyperhidrosis is that it can occur during situations that don’t typically warrant excessive sweating. Watching TV, a leisurely walk at a park, and other non-strenuous activities can still be moments of excessive sweating for those with hyperhidrosis. Dermatology, Laser & Surgery of Carnegie Hill can help you find the treatment needed to move past your hyperhidrosis.
WHAT IS HYPERHIDROSIS?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes overactivity in the sweat glands, making patients excessively sweat a debilitating amount. Hyperhidrosis typically occurs in and on areas more susceptible to sweating, including the hands, feet, armpits, groin, and facial area. However, it can still occur anywhere on the body. Patients can be born with hyperhidrosis, while others develop it later in life. Our NYC dermatologists can diagnose whether you have hyperhidrosis and help you get the treatment you need. Advancements in technology have helped patients keep their hyperhidrosis dormant with long-term, non-invasive treatments. The team at Dermatology, Laser & Surgery of Carnegie Hill can help you choose the hyperhidrosis treatment right for you.

WHAT TREATMENTS ARE USED FOR HYPERHIDROSIS?
Treatments for excessive sweating have come a long way. Our dermatologists at Dermatology, Laser, & Surgery of Carnegie Hill offer MiraDry®, Botox®, and laser treatments to help reduce the symptoms of hyperhidrosis.
MiraDry® For Excessive Sweating
MiraDry® uses advanced technology to provide a long-term solution for underarm sweating and odor. It is a non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment for hyperhidrosis. MiraDry® uses miraWave™ energy to treat overactive sweat and odor glands. During your MiraDry® treatment, a specialized handpiece will target sweat glands (otherwise called eccrine glands) and odor glands (also called apocrine glands). The specialized handpiece will create suction to draw your sweat and odor glands closer to the top layer of skin. MiraDry® technology then uses miraWave™ energy to heat and deactivate the sweat and odor glands that are overactive, ultimately reducing sweat and odor.
Botox® For Hyperhidrosis
Botox® is FDA-approved for hyperhidrosis. Botox® is injected into areas typically affected by hyperhidrosis to block nerve signals that signal the body to sweat. Maintenance Botox® treatments are needed about every 6-8 months to maintain the effects.
Laser Hyperhidrosis Treatment
Laser technology can destroy sweat and odor glands using precise laser energy. Laser treatment requires little-to-no downtime and can provide long-lasting results.
