Feel more confident with excessive sweating treatments in Portland

Feel More Confident with Excessive Sweating Treatments in Portland Area

Sweating is something that we all do when the body needs to cool off. For some people, sweat glands seem to operate even when the body is at a normal temperature. Excessive sweating is referred to as hyperhidrosis. Its effects on self-confidence can be devastating, but with focused treatments, this problem can be resolved. Individuals in the Portland area can find the help they need to stop excessive sweating in the comfortable Thrive anti-aging center.

What causes excessive sweating?

Hyperhidrosis is a problem that can make you feel extremely isolated. However, statistics demonstrate that over two million people suffer from this condition. Two types of sweat glands exist, eccrine and apocrine. Each type is activated by certain types of stimuli. While sweating is an essential cooling function, glands may also be stimulated by nervousness and anxiety, hormones, and emotions.

A person with hyperhidrosis is thought to be more biologically sensitive to internal and external stimulation. Seemingly incapable of turning off, the eccrine sweat glands in some people are overactive at all times, not just during physical or emotional stress. The medical term for this condition is primary focal hyperhidrosis. This means that excessive sweating is not related to medication or an underlying health condition. If you have been diagnosed with primary focal hyperhidrosis, there is hope for relief at Thrive. During a consultation with one of our licensed, experienced staff, you can discover the benefits of miraDry ® treatment.

Regain your confidence with miraDry ® treatments in Portland!

Using patented miraWaveTM energy technology, we gently treat the underarm area to reduce sweating. The glands targeted during treatment are destroyed by precise heating. The device, which has been developed through extensive clinical research, promotes comfort by cooling the tissues above the sweat glands. We also apply numbing cream to the skin to maintain comfort on the surface.

The results achieved with this non-invasive treatment are noticed right away. Because sweat glands are permanently disabled through energetic response, there should be no further issue with excessive sweating.

miraDry® TREATMENT

FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING

Say goodbye to armpit hair and underarm sweating. Mirror Smooth (miraDry??) will save your day.

miraDry® TREATMENT FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING

You shave it. You wax it, you laser it. Heck, you might even dye it pink. Talking about armpit hair. Now some people are saying you can microwave it away once and for all. We’re revealing a new treatment right now and our procedure room. Take it away, Doctor Ashton.

Hi guys So, I’m back here with doctor sheila Nazarian, board certified plastic surgeon and our patient Aaron. You’re going to be demonstrating this new microwave procedure to hit axillary hair, but before we get to that, tell, tell me why this hair bothered you, Aaron? Because I mean, you’re blonde, you wouldn’t mind.

I’m a personal trainer. I spend 95% of my day in a tank top in the gym or in a bikini and shaving every day is such a pain. No one likes to do it. I tried laser hair removal. It doesn’t work. If you have blonde hair and darker skin. So, I heard about mirror smooth So, thought I’d give it a try.

And you said it’s your game, okay, So, doctor Nazarian,

Yeah,

Go ahead and lie back Aaron. So, as you start working tell us a little bit about this technology. Who’s a good candidate for it and how? Does it work?

Well, the beauty of this technology is that everyone is a good candidate. Any skin colour, any hair colour? I’ve actually had the procedure performed on myself, didn’t get any hyperpigmentation from it.

So, you numbed Aaron up before we started, right?

Arron’s been numbed already. We’ve placed a temporary tattoo which basically gives us little tick marks. It’s really paint by numbers at that point and we use the microwave technology of mirror smooth to remove not only 70% of her hair with one treatment, but also the sweat and odour glands are also eliminated. So, it’s basically a little suction and some you know heat is applied, but because she’s numb there’s no pain.

You feel anything?
Fine, just a little pull,

Yeah.

And So, how many treatments typically does it take to really get a good effect?

So, 80% of people really only need one treatment. You’re going to get an 82% reduction in the sweat and odour glands and a 70% reduction in the hair growth. Which, if you’ve ever had laser hair, you know you need multiple treatments in order to get anywhere close to 70%.

So, what’s the cost range for something like this?

This that’s a great question. So, the first treatment is around 2000 dollars, but it’s, but if you think about how many laser hair removal treatments to do. I mean, it really is a great benefit and also laser hair doesn’t remove the sweat and odour glands.

Nice, well, 2000 dollars, meaning that you could throw away all your razors for the rest of your life.
Exactly

Right,

Never have to worry about sweating in your armpits again and being musty.

No more deodorant and think of all the money you spend on deodorant over a lifetime.

That’s true.

And it takes how long to do both pitch?

We usually schedule people for an hour at a time?
An hour!

So, can you imagine an hour and you’re done.
Oh my gosh,

Yeah,

Sign me up, scoot over.

Second string.

Amazing.

The one done idea is very appealing.

Exactly, yeah.

Thanks for sharing that with us and thanks for showing us your armpits,

Thanks for having me

You’re welcome.
