Are You Dreading Summer Due to Excess Sweating?

Has the thought of summer heat got you down, simply because you know it means suffering the embarrassment of relentless sweating? It’s not just you. Hyperhidrosis, or excess sweating, affects many people and causes undue stress and anxiety for its sufferers, particularly in the warmer months.

It’s typical to work up a sweat when you’re going for a run, or even when you’re scaling a particularly long flight of stairs—but for those with hyperhidrosis, sweating can be a constant struggle. If you suffer from excess sweating, you may find that you need to bring a change of clothes with you everywhere they go. You may even avoid social situations completely as the weather gets warmer because of the self-consciousness and discomfort you feel.

Fortunately, there are several non-invasive solutions that can quell your sweating and allow you focus on more important things.

How Does Sweating Work?

You probably already know that sweating is the body’s way of cooling itself down and is necessary for proper body function. There are two types of sweat glands: eccrine and apocrine [1]. Eccrine glands are distributed on the feet, palms, forehead and armpits, and they release a clear, odourless fluid that regulates body temperature. This is the main type of sweat produced by people suffering from hyperhidrosis. Apocrine glands, located mostly in the armpits and genital area, produce a thicker fluid that reacts with the skin’s bacteria to cause body odour.

Generally, sweating is triggered when the brain sends a message through the nerves to these glands to communicate that the body is too hot. Usually, this happens during exercise and emotional stress—but for people with excessive sweating, the glands activate without the presence of typical triggers.

The Causes of Excess Sweating

There are two main categories of hyperhidrosis, and they are classified based on whether a particular cause is known.

Primary hyperhidrosis has no clear-cut cause. Doctors think that it could stem from a malfunction of the sympathetic nervous system, which controls the body’s unconscious functions. It’s possible that this type of excess sweating is triggered when the brain sends signals to the sweat glands in situations when the body does not need to be cooled [2].

Secondary hyperhidrosis is excess sweating that can be linked to another medical condition. It can also be a side effect of certain medications. This type of hyperhidrosis often affects more generalised areas [3].

Treatments: Botox vs. MiraDry

Revere Clinics offers two non-invasive treatments that can alleviate your excess sweating—no surgery necessary.

You may be surprised to hear that Botox treats hyperhidrosis, but the injectable is useful for much more than just its wrinkle-smoothing abilities. We use Botox to reduce excess sweating because it blocks the nerves that supply the sweat glands, stopping their sweat production. The treatment entails a number of injections across the affected area, and it provides temporary relief from excess sweating. It can be used in any area where sweating is a problem, including the hands, face and groin, and is effective for about three to six months after the procedure.

We also recommend miraDry to patients suffering from excess sweating. miraDry is a medical device that distributes electromagnetic energy to the underarm area to eliminate the sweat glands there. Unlike other treatments, which only disable the sweat glands temporarily, miraDry works by destroying the glands completely for a long-term solution. In addition, it treats both the eccrine and the apocrine glands, eliminating sweat and odour at the same time. MiraDry is specially designed for treatment of the underarm area, and can currently only be used on the underarms.

The results of the miraDry treatment are long-lasting and can be felt immediately. For some patients, a second miraDry treatment may be necessary to achieve maximum results.

Which Treatment is Right for Me?

Botox is an excellent treatment for patients who suffer from excess sweating in areas other than their underarms, such as hands and brows. If your main problem area is your underarms and you seek a permanent solution, consider miraDry.

Inside the World of Injection Lipolysis

28th May, 2018

Blog

Few clinics can claim to know more about injection lipolysis than Revere. We pioneered its use across Europe through our ground-breaking Aqualyx procedures, which we use for our Fat Loss Facelifts and for fat removal across the face and (sometimes) body. But the world of injection lipolysis can be a complex and confusing one for those considering it. Here, we explain exactly what injection lipolysis is, how it works, the difference between different injecting agents and why Revere are so good at it. Read on!

What Is Injection Lipolysis and How Does It Work?

Injection lipolysis is the use of injections for fat reduction. We administer deoxycholate to a targeted area of the face and body, where it interacts with fat cells, dissolving them and causing them to die. The fat cells are then broken down and naturally removed from the body over the following weeks. At Revere, we primarily use injection lipolysis in the face, but we can use it to safely remove small quantities of fat from any area, such as the knees, underarms or even the thighs.

The Different Types of Injection Lipolysis, Explained

There are several different types of deoxycholate in the marketplace under different brand names – at Revere, we use Aqualyx injections, which are biocompatible and biodegradable. We’ve worked with Aqualyx for many years and have become industry-famous leaders in the field of Aqualyx administration.

An alternative brand, Kybella, is relatively new and the only product available in America.  It is only FDA approved for use under the chin and extremely expensive, which has limited doctors’ ability to gain experience with it. However, after a long-anticipated wait, it’s finally being brought to the UK under the brand name Belkyra.

As early adopters of injection lipolysis, Revere will lead the way with Belkyra – but only once we’ve accessed its efficacy and determined that it presents advantages over our current product. We’ve been working with our current Aqualyx injections for over 4 years, so we’re confident in the safety and effectiveness of our current product. Belkyra will need to boast impressive advantages for us to make the switch. With this in mind, it is important to note that changing from Aqualyx injections to Belkyra will not fundamentally alter our procedures. It’s akin to a baker changing flour.

At Revere, we pride ourselves on constantly seeking out the most modern, innovative, cutting-edge treatments. We only use products which we’ve tried, tested and found to be the best. This is the reason so many other clinics look to Revere as a leader in the adoption of new products. Our experienced practitioners Dr Sach Mohan and Dr Sabika Karim have a deep understanding of the chemistry as well as the cosmetic application of deoxycholate, and they use these insights to ensure that our patients achieve exemplary results.

If you’re thinking about using deoxycholate to achieve your perfect face shape, visit Revere for a complimentary, in-depth consultation, and we’ll guide you through everything you need to know.

Why October’s the Best Month to Get CoolSculpting

25th May, 2018

Blog

Aside from the excitement of Halloween, October might seem like a bit of a nothingy month. Christmas isn’t for ages, it’s getting rainy and cold and there’s not many opportunities to show off your bod – aside from at the gym of course, and what’s the point of putting the hours in when there’s so few opportunities to flaunt your progress?

Bearing all of this in mind, we wouldn’t blame you for being sceptical of the idea that October’s the ideal month to get CoolSculpting. But actually, starting your cycles in the quiet month of October can set you up for a slimmer Christmas and an ab-by New Year – and beyond! Read on to find out why.

CoolSculpting Takes Time to Work

CoolSculpting isn’t an immediate fat-loss fix – you’ll shed fat gradually, over the weeks and months following your treatment. Unlike liposuction, where your fat is sucked out in a single operation, with CoolSculpting, targeted pockets of fat are frozen, causing the fat cells to die. The unwanted fat is then eliminated through your body’s natural processes. This may sound like a drawback for people looking for an instant fix, but actually it has two major benefits. Firstly, people you know won’t ever suspect you’re not fighting the flab naturally, and secondly, you’re much less likely to end up with the dreaded excess skin so characteristic of rapid weight-loss. Starting your CoolSculpting cycles now, while your body isn’t regularly on display, gives you time to lose the fat for when you really need to impress. In fact…

You Can Unveil Your Initial Results Over Christmas Party Season

Did you know that a single session of CoolSculpting can result in a fat reduction of 20-25% in the treated area? And that you can expect to see a further 20-25% reduction over your second treatment cycle? If you book your first CoolSculpting treatment at Revere’s Harley Street Cosmetic Clinic today, you can expect the first signs of fat reduction to show themselves three weeks later, and by the time Christmas party season begins in early December, your friends, family and colleagues should be able to see a real difference. Full results are apparent 2-3 months after treatment – just in time for New Year’s Eve!

Expecting to Need Repeat Treatments? You’ll Be Bikini-Ready by Summer

If you can pinch significantly more than an inch, a single CoolSculpting treatment might not give you the trim physique you’re aiming for. Many patients swear that the second treatment’s the charm – but the number of treatments needed totally depends on your body and your individual goals. At Revere, we consult with you to give you a good indication of the results you can expect at your initial, complimentary consultation – and we generally advise waiting at least three months between CoolSculpting cycles, so that the full results of the previous treatment have had time to show themselves. So if you need two or three cycles, each taking around three months to complete, October’s the perfect time to get CoolSculpting – you’ll be bikini-ready just in time for July!

So take advantage of quiet October and book your CoolSculpting treatments at Revere today. There’s plenty of time to get the body you’ve been dreaming of in time for next summer – but only if you act fast!

Removing Facial Fillers: Everything You Need to Know

18th May, 2018

Blog

It’s natural to feel a little nervous the first time you have dermal fillers. Your appearance is about to change and there’s always the nagging question: what if my dermal fillers go wrong?

At Revere, we’re experts in dermal fillers. We have developed dozens of unique ways of applying them, from the non-surgical nose job to the liquid facelift – and we pride ourselves on achieving natural-looking results, every time. But our understanding of dermal fillers runs deeper still – we’re one of the only cosmetic clinics in the country that knows how to use Hyalase to effectively remove fillers which have gone wrong.

Many patients come to Revere after receiving disappointing results from inexperienced practitioners in other clinics – so we’ve put together this list of commonly asked questions to help you understand this little-known filler reversal procedure.

Q: How are dermal fillers removed?
A: At Revere, we use Hyalase injections to break down unwanted facial fillers. This is a compound containing hyaluronidase, an enzyme which breaks down hyaluronic acid.

Q: Can you remove all dermal fillers?
A: Hyalase can only be used on hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm, Perlane and Restylane. It cannot, sadly, be used on semi-permanent fillers such as collagen fillers – these will usually disappear with time, but if you’re not prepared to wait, the fillers may need to be excised. Permanent fillers will always need to be surgically removed.

Q: Can you adjust lumpy fillers to make them look better, or is complete removal my only option?
A: If you want your fillers corrected, you’ve come to the right place. We’re brilliant at correcting the work of less experienced practitioners – whether you’re suffering with lumps, your lips have been overfilled or you simply want your fillers taken down a notch, we can adjust your fillers to your liking.

Q: What other problems can Hyalase treat?
A: Hyalase can treat overfilling, lumps, asymmetrical fillers, bumps, granulomas and nodules from facial fillers. They can also treat the blueish tint that can occur if fillers are injected too close to the surface of the skin.

Q: What will happen at my appointment?
A: We will examine you carefully to determine the extent of the problem, and, once we’ve ascertained the location and type of fillers, we will apply a local anaesthetic to the skin to minimise discomfort. We will then correct your fillers through a course of carefully targeted injections of Hyalase. Once your treatment is complete, you can arrange to have new fillers administered at Revere, too.

Q: How long does Hyalase take to work?
A: It’s very quick, and you might see some results immediately. Much of your final result will be visible within 24 hours.

Q: I have heard that hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the skin, too. What will stop the Hyalase from affecting my own HA, rather than just the HA fillers?
A: This is why it’s so important to have your dermal fillers removed by specialists in Hyalase, as at Revere. Our experienced aesthetic physicians are experts in carefully and precisely administering Hyalase to ensure the surrounding tissue is completely unaffected. When properly administered, Hyalase is very safe and effective.

Q: Are there any other side effects?
A: Discomfort, bruising, swelling or mild irritation may occur temporarily, but resolves very quickly. With Hyalase, there’s no need to live with lumpy, bumpy or disappointing fillers. Just get in touch with Revere’s team of experienced aesthetic physicians, and book your complimentary consultation today.

If Flushing is Leaving You Red-Faced, Try Revere

14th May, 2018

It can be difficult to talk about excessive flushing. Everyone blushes or gets red from time to time, so few understand the embarrassment and distress that uncontrollable flushing can cause. And as the temperature rises across Britain and the streets and parks are filled with people enjoying the weather, only those who suffer from flushing will stop to think about how challenging the season can be when your face betrays you.

It might be that you feel you must arrive at appointments early so that you don’t rush and arrive red and flustered, or that your favourite spicy foods are now off limits. It may be that simply walking down the street in the unusually hot June weather sets off the problem. But you don’t need to suffer in silence any more. As an expert Harley Street skin clinic with a centre of excellence in Northwood, we can make worrying about redness a concern of the past.

What Causes Redness and Flushing?

Flushing, or redness in the face, can be caused by many different factors. Skin sensitivity, sun and environmental exposure, stress, allergies, diet and a skin condition called rosacea [2] can all cause facial flushing, and the condition can get worse with age. Flushing is also common throughout menopause.

At Revere, we use the V-Beam Perfecta laser to eliminate facial redness. The V-Beam works by targeting redness in the skin and delivering a gentle yet intense burst of laser energy to the targeted area, which is absorbed by the red blood cells and causes permanent damage of the surrounding vessel walls, breaking down the red blood cells which cause redness. The laser is relatively painless, though it can cause temporary swelling and redness, and often just one session provides the desired results. In fact, journalist Alice Hart-Davis sampled Revere’s V-Beam as part of the Daily Mail’s ‘The Ultimate Guide for Anti-Ageing’ feature, and declared it ‘little short of miraculous’.

What Will Happen at My Treatment?

Before we treat you, we’ll offer you a complimentary, in-depth consultation where we will determine the cause of your facial redness, and reassure you as to what to expect. Once we’ve decided on the use of the V-Beam laser, you’ll be taken to the treatment room and given a pair of goggles to protect your eyes. You’ll feel a warmth as the laser is applied, but the treatment is generally swift, lasting around fifteen minutes a session. You’ll need to use an SPF sunblock after your treatment (as indeed you should anyway!) and the full results will be apparent by around 6-8 weeks, depending on the severity of the condition.  Up to 3 sessions may be required to achieve best results.  As an extra benefit, the skin appears rejuvenated, with lasting improvements in tone and texture.

You can rest easy in the knowledge that your facial redness is in good hands with Revere – out treatments are  supervised by experienced specialist doctors, and our Northwood clinic is a designated ‘Centre of Excellence’ and European Training Centre for laser treatments. So when you decide to tackle your flushing with Revere, you know that you’re getting the best treatment on offer – and it won’t be long before avoiding spicy foods and feeling embarrassed when exercising are a thing of the past.

Less Than Pore-fect: Treating Enlarged Pores

12th May, 2018

Blog

If there’s one adage that the modern age has disproved, it’s that the camera never lies. We now know that filters, Photoshop and sneaky lighting can hide a multitude of sins, but there’s one flaw it can expose – and that’s large, open or congested pores. Thanks to the widespread availability of high-definition cameras, many of us have clicked on a tagged close-up of ourselves on Instagram or Facebook and been shocked to see a multitude of tiny craters speckled over our nose, forehead, cheeks or chin – but how can we get rid of them?

As a foremost Harley Street cosmetic clinic, we get plenty of patients through Revere’s doors looking for solutions – so here’s everything you need to know about this common, persistent problem.

What causes large pores?

We all have facial pores, but their visibility is determined by three main factors: skin type, age and gender [1]. The oilier your skin, the more sebum you produce and the larger your pores will appear – while ageing causes decreased elasticity around your pores, making them sag and look larger. Men have more visible pores than women, due to having an increased number of hair follicles, and race has also been determined as a factor in some studies [2]. There’s little you can do about your age, biological gender, skin type or ethnic background, but there are a number of measures you can take to reduce the appearance of pores.

Tackling large pores with skincare

A good skincare regime is essential for reducing the appearance of pores – oil, dead skin cells and dirt can all settle around your pores, making them look even larger. Blackheads can also form if large, open pores, get blocked with dirt and makeup. This build-up creates a plug called a comedo, the surface of which darkens due to oxidization [3], resulting in a small, unpleasant dark bump, which draws even more attention to the area.

Thoroughly cleansing your skin twice a day to eliminate this build-up is a core component of reducing the appearance of pores. Despite the often-accepted wisdom that oil should be kept away from pores at all costs, oil cleansing can be fantastic for pulling the sebum out of clogged pores [4]. Use a non-comedogenic oil such as Argan oil, paired with a light foaming cleanser afterwards, to ensure your skin is cleansed of any lingering residue [5]. Regular exfoliation can also help to reduce the appearance of pores by sloughing off the dead skin cells, which can stretch pores open – try one of Revere’s prescription retinoids, or manually exfoliate using a gentle scrub.

Reducing pore size with aesthetic treatments

At Revere, we offer a number of treatments which can help to reduce pore size. Microneedling with Genuine Dermaroller™/Dermastamp is ideal for ageing, large pores or acne-scarred skin. By creating tiny punctures in the skin (microdamage), we can harness the skin’s own powers of regeneration, triggering collagen production and resurfacing the skin. With minimal downtime (significant redness and photosensitivity will persist for a couple of days) Dermaroller renews and thickens the upper layers of the skin.

Laser treatments are also effective in treating visible pores. At Revere, we recommend EndyMed 3D Fractional Skin Resurfacing – like microneedling, the EndyMed system regenerates skin cells by creating thousands of tiny channels within the skin, provoking the skin’s natural healing response and stimulating new collagen and elastin. This reduces the appearance of pores by addressing the lack of elasticity at the edges of pores which causes them to gape and appear larger. Firming, tightening and, as the name suggests, resurfacing, EndyMed simultaneously addresses sagging, roughness, lines and scars.

Request a complimentary consultation with one of Revere’s experienced aesthetic physicians today to find out which of our treatments can best address the cause of your large pores – and prepare to smile for your close-up!

How Our Fat Loss Facelift™ Can Help You Achieve Perfection

7th May, 2018
|
Blog

Which part of your body do you think is most prone to stubborn fat? We’re used to hearing people complain of unwanted love handles, bingo wings and mummy tummy, but there’s actually a far more visible area where fat can accumulate. Facial fat is particularly difficult to eliminate naturally, and can cause great unhappiness in those who suffer from it in excess.

You don’t need to be overweight to suffer from excess facial fat. Not only is it often last to be affected by diet and exercise, it can also be genetic, or age-related. Though we lose facial fat as we age, muscle laxity can also cause fat to redistribute, showing itself around the jawline and chin. If you have a genetic predisposition towards facial fat, or have inherited characteristics such as feeble muscles in the jaw or an overbite, it may seem there’s little you can do to re-balance your features.

Most of us are accustomed to products such as dermal fillers, which add volume to the face to rebalance features. But the same advances haven’t been seen in the area of facial fat removal. Aside from facial liposuction (which is a surgical procedure, with all the associated risks and downtime), until recently there has been few options for the treatment of excess facial fat.

But now, Revere Clinics has developed the pioneering Fat Loss Facelift™, which can correct facial fat quickly and effectively, while simultaneously tightening the skin. Available exclusively at Revere Clinics, and invented by our own doctors, Dr Sach Mohan and Dr Sabika Karim, the treatment involves the targeted injection of Deoxycholate. This safe, effective ingredient (found in products such as Aqualyx and Kybella) causes facial fat cells to expand then break down. The body then processes the cells as waste, disposing of them over the following weeks.

Just one treatment is required to achieve optimal results – and once the fat cells have been treated, they’ll never return (providing the patient doesn’t gain an extraordinary amount of weight). The treatment is swift and precise, generally taking just 15 minutes to complete. Soreness and swelling will be experienced for 6-9 days following treatment, after which activities can be resumed as normal.

We treat a great range of patients with the Fat Loss Facelift ™ at Revere. Some of our patients have successfully worked towards their ideal body shape, but feel their facial fat is undermining their efforts. Some wish to eliminate the jowls and sagging chins which are an, often inevitable, sign of ageing. And some simply wish to achieve the much-coveted ‘V’ shape to their face, which comes from prominent cheekbones, slim lower cheeks and a lean jawline. Many of our patients choose to combine their Fat Loss Facelift ™ with dermal fillers for a smooth, proportionate face, or for a contoured effect – for example, by opting for our non-surgical nose job.

At your free, in-depth consultation, we can work with you to create a custom treatment plan to help you realise your ideal self-image. At Revere, the Fat Loss Facelift ™ is only administered by our expert doctors, Dr Sach Mohan and Dr Sabika Karim, who have years’ of experience in recommending the perfect treatment plans for their clients. Their light, deft hands, expert eyes and genuine desire to achieve perfection with each and every patient will ensure you leave Revere Clinics delighted with your results.

It’s a pleasure to see the fresh beauty our Fat Loss Facelift can reveal in patients who had given up on ever eliminating that stubborn facial fat. With their new contours revealing a face which they finally feel proud to look out from, we are pleased to give our patients renewed confidence, vigour and sparkle through this ground-breaking treatment.

Insta-Facials – Gimmick or Go-To?

6th May, 2018
|
Blog

From plump, pouty lips to a perfectly contoured face, Instagram is the app that’s launched a thousand aesthetic trends. The latest in this long line of trends is the Insta-facial, a broad category of highly Instagrammable face treatments, which seem specifically designed to generate PR through social media. With exotic ingredients and impressive-looking technology, these facials promise skin that’s glowing and healthier than ever – but are their results as exciting as their designs? Do they merit a Harley Street cosmetic clinic’s stamp of approval? Here, we explore the Insta-facials trend, and whether these treatments are skin saviours or merely a lure for likes.

A Futuristic Facial

There’s a good chance you’ve spent an evening sat at home in front of the television with a face mask on – but have you ever had a facial that involved a virtual reality experience? One popular Insta-facial begins with an eight-minute VR video that is meant to encourage mindfulness, followed by a skincare treatment involving a cleanse, tone, mask and peel.

People who have had this facial report that the skincare portion of the treatment is relatively standard; the VR is what makes the treatment novel. But at a cost of $1200 an hour, your time in a virtual reality doesn’t come cheap – and you may have to face the fact that you’re paying for Instagram likes on your VR headset selfie rather than rejuvenated skin.

Behind the Mask

Other oft-Instagrammed facials include one which uses a device that looks like a handgun to shoot frozen oxygen onto the face in a snow-like flurry of white; another layers a seaweed mask onto the skin. While visually appealing and ‘gram-worthy, these treatments must be backed by scientific research in order for the experts at Revere Clinics to support them.

At our Harley Street cosmetic clinic and our flagship location in Northwood, we only adopt treatments that have been tried and tested. Our experienced Aesthetic Physicians are passionate about using the latest technology – we pioneered the use of the fat dissolving injection Aqualyx in Europe, and are well-known for our revolutionary work with CoolSculpting – but we always ensure that our treatments are clinically proven to be effective and safe.

For a skin treatment that is more than just a photo opportunity, Revere Clinics can help. During your complimentary initial consultation, we’ll discuss your desired look and medical history so we can design a treatment plan that is bespoke to you. The treatments we suggest will depend upon your skin’s unique needs, rather than what will draw the most attention on an Instagram feed.

If you’re looking for a facial experience with demonstrated results, the HydraFacial is often a go-to treatment. During the HydraFacial, we use specially formulated serums and moisturisers to hydrate and nourish the skin, ultimately improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to leave you looking and feeling radiant.

Instead of turning to eye-catching but unsubstantiated Insta-facials, patients seeking to rejuvenate their skin, reduce redness and flushing in the face or improve the appearance of sun damage may want to consider one of Revere’s laser treatments. The Revere Clinic in Northwood is a Centre of Excellence and Training Centre for the world’s largest laser manufacturer, Syneron Candela, and we use their market-leading laser devices because they are proven to renew and regenerate the skin.

An Instagram post may show off an intriguing ingredient or a high-tech device, but what it can’t fully depict is the expertise and care taken in the treatment process. Your treatment plan will ultimately be determined by what’s most suitable for you, and no matter what treatment you receive, you can rest assured knowing that it will be carried out by one of our fully qualified, internationally-acclaimed cosmetic doctors. Should you post about your treatment process on Instagram? The choice is yours. Either way, the results from a Revere treatment will undoubtedly leave you ready for your close-up.

Excess sweating? miraDry is the only permanent solution

1st May, 2018

Blog

We recently posted about the embarrassment and discomfort that  underarm hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) can cause sufferers, particularly during the hotter months – but did you know that Revere Clinics offers a permanent solution to underarm sweating? Safe, quick and non-surgical, MiraDry effectively tackles underarm sweating by eliminating the underarm sweat glands along with the apocrine glands which are responsible for odor, getting rid of excess sweating at its cause.

What is miraDry?

miraDry is an FDA-cleared system which works by delivering electromagnetic energy to the underarms to eliminate sweat glands.

During your treatment, a local anaesthetic will be applied to the armpits, and electromagnetic energy will then be applied to the armpits in a repetitive fashion through the miraDry handpiece. The procedure usually takes 90 minutes, and you’ll notice a reduction in sweating as soon as it is complete. More than 80% of the glands are destroyed and one treatment is sufficient for the majority of patients.

How does MiraDry work?

MiraDry works by delivering focused bursts of electromagnetic energy deep into the skin and tissue of the armpits, where it penetrates and destroys the sweat glands. MiraDry’s special cooling technology protects the skin while the sweat glands are heated and eliminated – and once these glands are destroyed, they’ll never grow back.

Is MiraDry safe?

MiraDry is safe and FDA-cleared, with minimal side effects and downtime. Thanks to the numbing agent, patients experience little discomfort during treatment (a warm, pulling sensation is sometimes described). Some swelling and soreness post-treatment is normal and is easily treated with over-the-counter medication and an ice-pack – this will clear within a few weeks. A rare side-effect is temporary altered sensation in the skin of the under- or upper- arm, but this gradually resolves itself with time.

Why choose MiraDry?

Other non-clinical solutions, like Botox, are only temporary – but when you choose MiraDry, you’re reducing your underarm sweating by around 85%, permanently. And while surgical solutions are available, they carry associative risks and can cause scarring.

Safe, quick, effective and convenient, miraDry is perfect for anyone who finds their sweating uncomfortable and embarrassing, and it offers a viable alternative to deodorant for anyone who feels concerned about the chemicals they’re applying to their body daily. At Revere Clinics, we’ll discuss your treatment with you in-depth at your complimentary consultation before deciding on the right course of action for you, and your miraDry treatment will only ever be performed by a qualified aesthetic practitioner in a safe, sterile environment.

So, if you’re sick of soaking your workout gear, you’re worried about the aluminum in your deodorant or you simply want to feel free to engage in whichever activities you choose without feeling worried, book a consultation at our Harley Street or Northwood clinic to see if miraDry could be the treatment you’ve been waiting for.
