Year after year, the gorgeous red silk dress draped aimlessly in her closet. Hidden amidst a surplus of black outfits, the dress only saw the sunlight when an eager child played hide-and-go-seek in the closet. The red dress had no real emotions but couldn’t help wonder why its owner was shunning it. Some days the dress overheard its owner speak about it in a nostalgic tone, “If only I could wear that beautiful red dress for tonight’s party, without covering it up with a sweater or jacket,” she lamented.
Then one morning she swung open the closet doors and pushed the other dresses aside, revealing a spectrum of light that emphasized the red dress’ natural beauty.
“I can finally wear you!”
She yelped joyfully and removed the dress from its hanger and slid it over her bare skin. From that day forward she wore the red dress – along with an array of other colorful clothes.
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a condition that affects the lives and lifestyles of more than 9 million Americans. From foreheads to foot soles, excessive sweating stinks.
“Folks were not always offered a safe, simple and easy solution to their problem,” said Claudia Grimes, founder and owner of Don’t Sweat It.
In 2013, Grimes, Jennifer Amram and certified neurologist Dr. Marshall White teamed up to offer South Carolinians a solution to excessive sweating – a non-invasive procedure called Mira Dry, which has, over the last few years, revolutionized the world of hyperhidrosis control.
Twenty-five-year-old Mount Pleasant resident Callie Ryall struggled with hyperhidrosis her entire life.
Ryall struggled with hyperhidrosis her entire life. “Before the Mira Dry treatment, I was always selfconscious – keeping my arms tucked by my sides in public to hide my sweat stains,” said Ryall.
She knew it was time for a change and consulted with White and Grimes at Don’t Sweat It about her problem. The low-risk, high-reward Mira Dry procedure was a nobrainer for Ryall. After just one treatment, her excessive sweating was nearly gone.
A challenge for Don’t Sweat It is that although so many folks suffer from embarrassing and excessive sweating, hyperhidrosis remains a touchy and rather private subject. Yet the company’s success rate of 98 percent for two Mira Dry treatments is creating quite a stellar reputation.
“The 90-minute Mira Dry procedure utilizes electromagnetic microwave heat technology to eliminate sweat glands, and, since sweat glands do not regenerate, it is permanent,” said Grimes. In addition, Mira Dry patients will experience “side effects” (or benefits) of reduced odor and hair growth under their arms.
Dr. White also treats a number of hyperhidrosis patients who suffer from excessive sweating of the hands, feet and scalp with Botox.
“Before my Mira Dry and Botox treatments with Don’t Sweat It, I could literally pick up a piece of paper by sticking my sweat-soaked hand on it,” said one patient.
Don’t Sweat It works with patients who suffer with all sorts and levels of hyperhidrosis symptoms.
“Some folks are just looking to clear up slight underarm moisture with one Mira Dry treatment, while others may struggle with much more excessive sweating. It doesn’t matter where you sweat – we can help,” said Grimes.
One evening a few weeks after her Mira Dry treatment, local dental hygienist Allison Garbarini decided to brave an outdoor concert in a white T-shirt. This was after a lifetime of wearing only black clothes due to her excessive Underarm sweating.
“I danced my butt off and didn’t get sopping wet armpits,” exclaimed Garbarini. “I was sweating like a Normal person, and it was awesome!”
