International Hyperhidrosis Month at Kat & Co

Understanding excessive sweating and hyperhidrosis is important to Kat & Co and we are proud to offer a safe, permanent & immediate solution to underarm sweat in miraDry.  

miraDry is a ground-breaking treatment that offers permanent and immediate results with little to no downtime, and an optimal safety record.  

Excessive sweating is something that bothers 1 in 10 people every day, all year round & often has a profound effect on their confidence and lifestyle. Sufferers have to think twice about what they wear and sometimes avoid situations where increased sweating is likely to occur. 

Many also rely on industrial-strength antiperspirants, often with multiple cans or bottles on the go, in order to keep sweating under control. It’s frustrating, limiting, and pretty detrimental for the environment.

Sweating is of course a completely natural and necessary bodily function. However, when the body produces more than we’re comfortable with, that’s when it becomes a problem.


Hyperhidrosis is a serious medical condition characterized by excessive, uncontrollable sweating 

New research shows that nearly 5% of the world’s population suffers from excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis. November is ‘international hyperhidrosis month’ and we want to help spread the awareness on this debilitating condition that effects at least 2 million of the UK population daily. 


After a consultation to specify a bespoke treatment plan, the clinician will administer local anaesthesia to the underarm area. 


Next, they’ll transfer a template (like a temporary tattoo) onto the skin that will act as a guide throughout the treatment. 


Once you’re good to go, the clinician will apply the miraDry hand piece to the underarm, sending waves of thermal energy into the skin.

This energy is concentrated to the zone where the dermis meets the fat layer, heating up – and safely destroying – the sweat glands. Don’t worry though; the miraDry system simultaneously cools the upper layers of the skin making the whole thing pretty comfortable. Treatment of both underarms should take an hour. 


What does it feel like? 

Thanks to the pre-treatment anaesthetic and the innovative cooling system, most patients describe the procedure as painless.

What results can I expect?

miraDry is clinically proven to reduce sweat production by 82% and results can be seen in as little as one treatment. As with any medical aesthetic procedure, clinicians will advise if multiple sessions are required. The best bit? Once treated, the sweat glands won’t come back, making this one of the most permanent solutions to excessive underarm sweat.

Are there any side effects?

Good news! There’s little to no downtime, so you can leave the clinic and get back to business as usual. Some may, however, experience a little swelling, numbness, bruising or sensitivity for a couple of days post treatment. As well as some short-term altered sensation in the underarm or upper arm skin, which gradually fades. Other effects may be noted, and patients should consult with their physician.

Wait – don’t we need sweat glands? 

Good question. Thankfully, the body has 2-4 million sweat glands and only about 2% are found in the underarms. The rest of the body will continue to sweat normally, meaning it’ll have no problem cooling itself.

How much does it cost?

Every miraDry treatment is customised to each patient’s individual needs so pricing can vary.
