The Newest Skin Treatment is No Sweat!

A

dvances in medical procedures provide us with so many options
when it comes to improving our appearance. There's no doubt
that when we look good, we feel good about ourselves. And
when it comes to having a great look there's no better start than
having great looking skin.
Laser treatments remain effective in improving the skin's appearance through the elimination of brown (age) spots, treating redness
on the face or other red areas of the body, hair removal and even
tattoo removal.

Facials also do wonders for skin rejuvenation, especially Himalayan
Salt Stone facials. This specialty facial detoxifies and aids in skin
tightening and as your body absorbs essential minerals into the skin
it gently relieves stress leaving you feeling rejuvenated.
Microneedling, or Collagen Induction Therapy, provides an accelerated approach to reducing the appearance of fine lines, scarring,
and stretch marks and promoting an overall tightening of the skin.
Microneedling treatments create invisible micro perforations in
the skin that stimulate the production of collagen, enhancing the
creation of healthy new skin.
Microneedling with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) takes the benefits
of microneedling to new levels, magnifying the results by using the
internal essence of your blood - life-giving fundamental protein
growth factors. By taking a sample of your blood (similar to a
blood test), platelet-rich plasma is separated in a centrifuge and
reintroduced into the treatment area using the microneedling process,
producing amazing results. This process is also extremely effective
for hair restoration.
What's not surprising is that with so many treatments available to
enhance your appearance, there's now a truly innovative treatment
that addresses another skin issue - underarm perspiration and
odor. It's estimated that 7.8 million people in the US alone suffer
from hyperhidrosis or severe underarm perspiration. These sufferers
deal with constant embarrassment from offensive sweat, odor that
results in unsightly perspiration and deodorant stains on clothing.
Relief is now within reach with the introduction of a truly innovative
treatment, miraDry®.
miraDry works by delivering localized heat through precisely
controlled microwave technology to the armpit area, destroying
glands that lead to sweaty, smelly underarms. The patient is awake
and comfortable during the entire procedure, which takes only about
2 hours in the office. After the miraDry procedure is performed,
patients may no longer need to rely on antiperspirants to control
sweat and odor and unsightly stains on clothing are a thing of the
past. An added benefit of miraDry is the considerable reduction of
underarm hair. This procedure, originally designed for those with
extreme perspiration problems, is now being embraced as an aesthetic
procedure for both men and women that simply don't want to deal
with underarm sweat, odor and hair. As Dr. Hendrix, physician at

After the miraDry procedure is performed, patients may no longer
need to rely on antiperspirants to control sweat and odor and
unsightly stains on clothing are a thing of the past. An added
benefit of miraDry is the considerable reduction of underarm hair.
Reading Dermatology states, "In the case of miraDry, we provide hope
to those that have been prevented from being confident at work or
school by helping them feel clean and carefree in their everyday lives."
miraDry is the only non-invasive FDA approved treatment for
the permanent reduction of underarm perspiration and is now
exclusively available in Berks County at Reading Dermatology's
Center for Heathy Skin in West Lawn.
