A term used to describe those born between 1980 and 2000 (or 18 to 34 year olds), millennials are a hot-button topic. This is primarily because of the unique way they perceive and interact with the world compared to the generations that came before them, and healthcare is no exception.
With so much information just a touch or click away, conditions such as hyperhidrosis, once buried inobscurity, are now gaining more awareness with this group (and the rest of the world). As a result, more research is being done about potential treatment options that are available on the market, and why miraDry is the ideal solution for any sweat-conscious millennials looking to make a change.
Here are three major reasons why millennials with excessive sweat might want to give miraDry a try:
Growing up during the advent of technology, millennials—like many of us—have become somewhat addicted to instant gratification. miraDry pairs well with this obsession, as results from the procedure are as instant as it gets. In fact, most patients experience results immediately after the first treatment without any follow-up required.
According to Fortune, millennials have a very different view on the concept of health. They don’t see health as the absence of disease, but rather a series of pieces put together that paint a picture of well-being, including mental health, diet and healthy lifestyle. For example, they are considerably more conscious about what’s going on and in them, such as the parabens that are found in deodorants (and other beauty products), opting for more “natural” solutions, instead.
miraDry is a safe, more natural approach to keeping underarm sweat at bay. It is a surgical-free, chemical-free alternative to antiperspirant deodorants that uses electromagnetic energy to eliminate sweat and odor glands.
Millennials are a very money-conscious group when it comes to their health. Though they are more willing to spend money on products that may improve health in one way or another if the product demonstrates value, they are a group more likely to find ways to make healthcare cheaper for themselves, according to Becker’s.
That said, the savings miraDry potentially offers should sound rather sweet to this group. Given the fact that the majority of people use deodorant every day, that cost adds up over the course of a month, a year and a lifetime (even with coupons). miraDry is a one-time, up-front cost for getting rid of sweat forever. Millennials can officially say goodbye to the lifetime cost of deodorant, dry cleaning (to remove pit stains) and shirt replacement (when the stains don’t come out). Cha-Ching.
So, if you’re a millennial and you’re done with excessive sweating, miraDry may be just what you need to be the best that you can be of your generation.
miraDry is an FDA-cleared treatment for reducing excessive underarm sweat, including excessive sweating caused by hyperhidrosis. It uses electromagnetic energy to neutralize the sweat and odor glands that exist beneath the surface of the skin. It has also been effective in removing hair from the underarm area, leaving you with one less thing to worry about when it comes to your beauty routine.*
