The Cost of Keeping Dry: Stop Sweating, Save Money

Oh no! Another shirt, another pit stain. Tired of sweating through your clothes but unsure of whether you want to commit to a more advanced treatment? When considering the cost of ridding yourself of excessive underarm sweat, there are many factors to calculate in comparison to a simple, miraDry® treatment.

What is miraDry?

miraDry is the only FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that dramatically reduces underarm sweat. Performed in an outpatient setting, miraDry uses controlled electromagnetic waves to eliminate the glands that produce sweat and odor. It is also approved for reducing the presence of underarm hair by 70% or more.*

How Much is Sweat Costing You?

While you may hesitate to put your money where your sweat is – investing in miraDry, consider what perspiration is already costing you. To gain some perspective on how costly excessive sweat can be, ask yourself these questions:

  • What does your water bill look like with excessive or multiple showers (more than one per day)?
  • How much antiperspirant do you go through each week?
  • What does your dry cleaning bill look like after dropping off your sweat-soaked shirts?
  • How much money do you spend replacing articles of clothing after those sweat stains have claimed your wardrobe? (Did you factor in the gas cost traveling to the store?)
  • On an annual basis, what are you paying for doctor visits and prescriptions that are related to sweating?
  • What are you paying for other forms of treatment that require routine maintenance visits, such as Botox® injections?

While it is relatively easy to determine the monetary cost of excessive sweat, there are also intangible costs to consider as well:

  • How much time do you devote to showering a week?
  • How much wasted time do you attribute to changing from shirt to shirt?
  • How much of your time disappears when shopping for new clothes?
  • Are you constantly anxious or depressed over your appearance?
  • Do you dread or avoid a lot of social engagements, such as dates or nights out with friends, because you’re too embarrassed or worried about your sweat stains?
  • Have you lost professional opportunities due to your sweaty appearance?

In short, sweating is costing you time, money and positive life experiences. The negative impact on your emotions and finances may be causing unnecessary stress. Conduct a cost benefit analysis of all your current costs versus one singular miraDry treatment to determine the short-term and long-term monetary advantages. As for your emotional well-being, miraDry provides long-lasting relief. Just ask yourself how your life would change for the better if you no longer had to worry about excessive sweating.
