If you are frequently embarrassed by your sweaty underarms, you could be suffering from hyperhidrosis. Everyone sweats, but people with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), sweat a whole lot more than others. Thankfully, hyperhidrosis is a disorder that can be easily treated. But how much does hyperhidrosis treatment cost in Boston.
Excess sweating that primarily affects the underarms is known as axillary hyperhidrosis. Sweating is a normal mechanism the body uses to regulate temperature, but too much sweating is an indication that the nerves that trigger the sweat glands have become overactive.
How much does hyperhidrosis treatment cost in Boston
The cost of treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis depends on the treatment modality selected. Traditional treatments for underarm sweating such as antiperspirants or oral medication, often provide only temporary results. However, there is now an innovative treatment known as miraDry that offers long lasting results.
MiraDry is a non-invasive treatment that uses electromagnetic energy to target and destroy the sweat and odor glands.
The cost of miraDry in Boston ranges from $1,500 to $2,000. Patients generally need two treatments to achieve a significant reduction in underarm sweating. Treatments are spaced about 2 months apart.
Benefits of miraDry
The sweat glands treated with miraDry do not regenerate after they have been treated, so the results are long lasting. In addition, miraDry is a non-invasive, virtually painless treatment that takes about 60 minutes to complete. There is little or no downtime after miraDry, so patients are generally able to return to regular activities immediately after treatment.
If you are looking for a solution for hyperhidrosis around Boston, MiraDry may be the ideal treatment for you.
