MiraDry® is a Lifestyle Change.
Miradry Orlando deserves an alternative.
Stick, spray, or roll-on. The purpose of antiperspirants is to help reduce sweating. It is by far one of the most common personal care products we all use. We are all familiar with embarrassing underarm sweat stains, the odor that often goes with them, and the effort required to hide them. Many people use antiperspirants that are formulated with a fragrance to help eliminate odors, and many others seek medical help from a dermatology professional for solutions to excessive sweat odor.
“Actually, the sweat isn’t what gives you underarm odor,” says Orlando based md Dr. Charles Newman, Jr. “Bacteria metabolize dead skin cells and the salts in the sweat, releasing a foul smell that we recognize as body odor.” For those who do not sweat profusely, many choose to use deodorant instead of an antiperspirant.
(Incidentally, Doctor Newman offers both the individual and family a suite of services, including breast augmentation, breast reduction, servhair removal, coolsculpting, face and body cosmetic surgery, plastic surgery, ultherapy, laser hair removal, Botox injections, and underarm fat treatment. He joins other fine physicians and surgeons, who have called Orlando Fl home over their long careers, providing aesthetic, surgical and non-surgical options for improving a variety of patient conditions. Orlando society in 2019 benefits from the resources Dr. Newman and staff provide, from medical spa treatments to educational cancer prevention dialog to care through technology. )
Antiperspirant Versus Deodorant Guide
The fundamental difference between an antiperspirant and deodorant is how these products work, as well as the active ingredients that they utilize. Antiperspirants contains compounds to help reduce the amount of sweat that is produced under the arms. Deodorants, on the other hand, allow for the natural release of sweat, but it combats the smell by using an antiseptic agent that will kill bacteria that causes bad body odor. Antiperspirants tend to be more effective than deodorants as they usually are formulated to block perspiration as well as cover any smells with their agreeable aroma.
How Does Antiperspirant Stop Sweat?
- Aluminum. Most antiperspirants are formulated with aluminum as this active ingredient helps plug up active sweat glands. The percentage of aluminum chloride essentially helps reduce the amount of sweat that is produced. The effects are temporary, however. Clinical strength antiperspirants contain higher concentrations of this active ingredient.
- Parabens. Even though this ingredient is typically used to help reduce bacteria formation on cosmetic products, studies have shown that parabens can also halt the process of sweat glands. There has been some concern with parabens in recent years and many patients choose to avoid skin care products that contain parabens. In general, using a new product that is approved by the FDA also ensures that consumers stay safe when investing in antiperspirant.
No Chemicals? No Sweat
Products are approved as antiperspirants if they reduce 20% of the sweat produced. Clinical strength means these products reduce 30%. Many people find themselves apprehensive about chronically exposing themselves to chemicals with such a small clinical effect. This is one of the top reasons that rights-reserved miraDry® can permanently reduce sweating by 80% and has become such a popular chemical-free alternative in controlling sweating. For an American who suffers from hyperhidrosis, which is advanced or extreme underarm sweating, this product will provide a good solution to sweating and sweat odor.
