Ah, menopause. The inevitable biological process that’s been making its way into the lives of all women between the average ages of 40 and 55 since the very beginning of time. This natural transformation occurring within the female body signals the end of her ability to reproduce, and beginning of the rest of her (infertile) life.
Although the medical definition of menopause suggests it to be a pretty simplistic biological process, we as women all know the reality of what actually happens here. With that being said, it’s fair to admit that experiencing menopause and its varying symptoms is a far too inconvenient, annoying, emotionally complex, and enraged with estrogen-infused hormones to be accurately portrayed in formal textbook context. Cosmetic Surgery of New Yorkunderstands these factors, which is why we are proud to offer a variety of cosmetic procedures at our Long Island location that specifically cater to menopausal women.
With menopause giving way to night sweats, day sweats, hot flashes, and constant fluctuations of our internal body temperature, the notion of sweating and what comes along with it serves a real inconvenience to anyone—let alone menopausal women, who are likely already experiencing a mix of additional symptoms. With our underarms being prime territory for excessive sweating, it then leads many of us to feel self-conscious and embarrassed of noticeable sweat stains and body odor.
As a woman, looking and feeling your absolute best as you proceed through menopause (and everything else) should include the freedom from worrying about sweat breakouts, or its noticeable effects.
HOW DOES MIRADRY WORK?
This non-invasive procedure uses electromagnetic waves to a precise depth beneath the skin’s surface, which in turn, safely target your skin’s sweat glands, without disrupting its surrounding tissue.
WHAT’S THE PROCEDURE LIKE?
miraDry treatment is performed at CSNY’s accredited office facility in roughly 60 minutes, and requires minimal-to-no downtime. During treatment, your skin’s surface is comfortably maintained at a balanced, cooler temperature via a mechanism built into the miraDry device’s hand piece.
IS IT SAFE?
miraDry has a very strong safety record. Although patients may experience some minimal soreness or swelling in and around the treatment area, it typically clears up within a few weeks, and patients are free to resume their regular activities immediately following treatment. To date, more than 6,000 miraDry procedures have been performed worldwide, as patients from all walks of life continue to report minimal side effects, optimal tolerability of treatment, and lasting, successful results, months after treatment.
