Are Your Armpits Ready for Spring?

Posted On: April 23, 2018
Try miraDry to curb sweating.
At the Grand Rapids Bengtson Center, miraDry destroys unwanted underarm sweat glands.

Springtime and its warmer weather should be known for showers that water beautiful blossoms—not sweat stains that bloom from beneath your arms. While nicer days are at hand, it’s not too late to tackle the problem of “pitting out.” Women and men worried about excessive sweating can find a friend in miraDry®, the Grand Rapids Bengtson Center’s answer for the problem of soaked shirts.

Anyone who’s ever rolled their eyes while rolling on another layer of antiperspirant or changed their mind about going out because of the thought of changing their top yet again due to sweat stains will be happy to know that our team now offers a nonsurgical solution that knocks out the glands that cause both unwanted moisture and smell.

You have two types of sweat glands in your underarm area, and miraDry® blasts them both. Its carefully calibrated electromagnetic waves shut off the eccrine glands that make salty sweat and the apocrine glands that produce a liquid that mixes with bacteria to create body odor. By “shut off,” we mean destroy, obliterate, and wipe off the map. Once these glands are gone, they’re gone—and so are your worries about packing a spare blouse, keeping your arms down during your next meeting, or stocking up on deodorant. (And don’t worry about staying cool, because you’ll still have plenty of sweat glands all over the rest of your body.)

Since the best results can take a few treatments spaced weeks apart, anyone who wants to ready their armpits for warmer weather is encouraged to start while the clouds are still hiding the sun. By the time the temperature starts to really heat up, you’ll be staying cool when it comes to worrying about those pesky pits.
