Excessive sweating can cause true discomfort to patients who suffer from it. The most common affected areas are the armpits, the palms of the hands and the palms of the feet.
From Ricart Medical Institute we offer the following specialized treatments:
Recent studies show that genetic predisposition is one of the most obvious causes, however emotional factors such as stress or anxiety can aggravate excess sweating.
The Dr. Ricart Medical Institute has the cutting-edge treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis available, MIRADRY. MIRADRY is an FDA (US Food and Drug) approved technology that uses electromagnetic microwave energy to reach the deeper layers of the skin, thereby eliminating underarm sweating and odor problems immediately, permanently, safely, and non-invasively.
MIRADRY uses microwave energy to treat excessive sweating and underarm odor. This treatment is recommended for patients who:
Dr. Ricart, chief of the Dermatology and Cosmetic Medicine of the Ricart Medical Institute in Valencia tells us that axillary hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a common problem among the population, causing discomfort and insecurity to those who suffer from it and can even impact one’s ability to interact effectively in the work place, and can have devastating effects on one’s social interactions.
According to Dr. Ricart, treatment for axillary, palmar, and plantar hyperhidrosis using the botulinum toxin has shown excellent results so far, with the only drawback that the treatments must be repeated after a few months.
However, the cutting-edge MIRADRY system achieves the controlled destruction of the sweat glands that cause axillary sweating and odor using electromagnetic energy and without surgery. The effect is immediate, and patients are able to return to their normal activities and work right after the procedure. The result is permanent and does not cause compensatory sweating.
MiraDry delivers non-invasive, controlled microwaves in the area where the sweat glands are located. The energy heats and eliminates the sweat glands and these do not grow back or regenerate, therefore causing a lasting reduction in underarm sweating and odor. Furthermore, MIRADRY’s cooling system protects the skin during treatment.
It is a non-invasive procedure that provides a lasting solution for excessive underarm sweating and odor with:
The MIRADRY technology is a fast and safe procedure that must be carried out in a medical office under the supervision of a physician and allows anyone with a sweating and/or odor problem to forget about sweat and smell forever.
Botulinum toxin treatments are indicated for the treatment of intense sweating on the palms of the hands and palms. The botulinum toxin is injected to temporarily block the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands, responsible for the attacks of excessive sweating. The treatment should be performed in consultation under the supervision of a dermatologist specialized in hyperhidrosis and should be repeated after months.
