miraDry® - Patients ask Dr. Ringpfeil answers
Please feel free to use the blog below to share information about miraDry® or to ask Dr. Franziska Ringpfeil a question that might be of interest to others.
Sweating is a normal function of our body, helping us to maintain a stable body temperature at times of overheating.
However, anxiety or genetics can cause excessive sweating. This excessive sweating is not necessary for our body and can create embarrassment and negatively impact self confidence.
The miraDry® solution treats excessive sweating without interfering with the body's cooling system.
If you unswered "Yes" to one of the question above, we have a solution for you
Now, we offer a lasting solution that can make embarrassing underarm sweat a thing of the past.
The miraDry® procedure uses clinically proven non-invasive technology to significantly reduce your underarm sweat with minimal to no downtime.
I have been suffering from excessive sweating for as long as I can remember. I tried off-the counter wipes, wearing dark colors, and always having a dark cardigan in my bag in order to wear when sweat stains become too visible. I researched permanent solutions and found out about MiraDry®. I then went to miraDry®'s website and looked for dermatologists who offer the procedure.
My experience with Dr Ringpfeil has been phenomenal. I am from DC and I looked for dermatologists that accept my insurance. I knew MiraDry® would probably not be covered by insurance but I preferred to be insured in the unlikely case of a side complication. Dr Ringpfeil's staff, especially Emily and Martha, were extremely helpful and accommodating in explaining the procedure to me and letting me know what my options were. I decided, after my positive phone experience, to rent a car and drive from DC to Pennsylvania for a day to perform the procedure. I wasn't able to have the procedure during the normal work week since I was working in DC but Dr Ringpfeil accommodated me by having the procedure on a Saturday morning. Dr Ringpfeil also accommodated my requests for the procedure's intensity level explaining the pros and cons. After the procedure, Emily patiently explained how to reduce the discomfort and answered all my requests and questions.
It has been two months since my procedure and my sweating level has decreased significantly. I recommend MiraDry® to those who suffer from excessive sweating and I most definitely recommend Dr Ringpfeil's office overall. They are helpful, knowledgeable and extremely friendly and accommodating.
