“I was quite nervous about the procedure. The ladies and Dr G answered all my questions honestly and put me at ease. This is the first week in my life that I haven’t sweat under my arms. I have done a couple of crossfit sessions this week, and was bone dry under my arms after the workouts. Can’t tell anyone how thankful I am. Money well spent! I would recommend this to anyone who has issues with underarm sweat. This procedure has already changed my life. Thanks to everyone at Gerrish MedEsthetics spa!”
Dr. G from Gerrish MedEsthetics is a godsend! He is the pioneer of the procedure MiraDry, which gets rid of your underarm sweat up to 80%. I have suffered from hyperhidrosis since my teen years. This condition causes me to sweat uncontrollably from my feet, hands, and underarms. As a teacher, I am in front of students daily and with hyperhidrosis it was hard to hide the sweat stains because the wetness came down to my ribs. I could not wear dress shirts because within minutes I looked like I had just come from the gym. It was disgusting and uncomfortable. I purchased a lot of black sweaters and cardigans in order to cope with hyperhidrosis. I “Googled” how to get rid-off armpit sweat and MiraDry popped up. I decided to seek out Doctor G for help. After getting two MiraDry treatments I can now wear tops without sweaters. After trying MiraDry, my underarms are much more manageable. The sweat is not 100% gone but it’s a world of a difference with what I currently have. I still have a small horizontal line of sweat left at the end of the day, which is not bad at all compared to where I used to be. The extra benefit from MiraDry is that it removed most of my armpit hair and I no longer have to shave weekly. It is as if I received two treatments for the price of one; laser hair removal and sweat killer. At Bellini, I have also gotten fillers under my eyes. Sheila the RN did an amazing job! She is sweet, and talks to you as if you have known each other for years. She makes you feel comfortable and at the same time is very professional. Overall, my experience with Bellini Salon and MedEsthetics has been amazing. When you are paying a good amount of money you expect the best customer service there is, and Bellini has delivered that service. I will be returning for future procedures and I highly recommend Gerrish MedEsthetics!
For as long as I can remember, I have never been able to wear blouses of any kind, least of all, silk! Any dress that fit close to my arms was out. Even jackets were ruined by my underarm sweating. My problem was beyond vanity, it was ruining my wardrobe and let’s not dismiss the embarrassment I constantly faced. It didn’t matter if it was hot or cold, I would sweat, a lot. I work in television, so this was quite a problem when sitting on set. No one wants the world to watch them sweat!
I tried Botox and realized instantly, it was going to cost a fortune and only lasted a short period of time. I tried lipo, the suction was supposed to destroy the sweat glands. But I am healthy and my cells grew back and I continued to sweat. I tried another laser procedure, twice! It significantly lessened the amount of sweat, but only for a short time. I eventually began sweating again. The doctor that did the last two procedures, introduced me to Dr. Gerrish and Miradry. It was going to be another cost, but I had already invested nearly 10 thousand dollars, at this point, why not give it a shot.
The procedure took a little over an hour and was pain free. Dr. Gerrish was great, his office space was inviting and made me feel very comfortable. The recovery took a good full week until the tenderness and bruising was gone. While I can hardly believe it, I have finally stopped sweating! I have to train my brain to start knowing when I put on a silk blouse, it won’t be ruined. I don’t have to fear the embarrassment of sweating thru it. This is definitely a life changer for me. Time to go shopping!
Thank you, Dr. Gerrish and Miradry!
Hi mi name is Juan and Officially today is a month after having performed the miradry procedure. At first I had the doubt of the effectiveness that could have the proceeding and if it could take more than one session to obtain the result that I wanted. Look for the Internet who will perform this procedure and found bellini salon, I made an appointment to get more information about the procedure, the moment I entered the office I noticed some degree of reliability in what they do, at that moment I knew that I had arrived To the right place, in my orientation told me that the procedure was between 70-80% effectiveness, that percentage for me was spectacular, I quickly decided that if I wanted to perform the treatment. My initial appointment was for January 30, eager to see resolved and see completed my excessive sweat call and change it by January 2. Speaking of the procedure I can say that the professionalism of Dr. Gerrish and the incredible attention of Loretta was an incredible experience, they are highly trained people and great talent to make any client feel good. The procedure is one that the pain is extremely minimal, the recovery process is an amazing in the second week the swelling began to disappear and I returned to have the figure I have always had. The result of the treatment is incredible in my person the result was of a 100% of effectiveness surpassing the 70-80% that is estimated. It’s a unique experience and knowing that I’m finally done with excessive sweating makes me feel sure of myself again. I have no doubt that Dr. Gerrish’s Office was the best choice I could make. I recommend it 150%.
I had the MiraDry procedure done with Dr. Gerrish and Loretta and I could not be more impressed! They were both incredibly attentive and caring for my needs, and were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about all aspects of what they were doing. I had shopped around extensively across the DMV area, and Dr. Gerrish stood out as the top choice for the options–he and his staff certainly did not disappoint! They performed the MiraDry procedure (and it works as advertised, I’m at 10 weeks after) and did an excellent job, and it’s clear they take great pride, care, and attentiveness with everything they do. Would highly recommend the procedure and location for anyone (especially if you’re unsure–they’re incredibly friendly too!).
I’m 6+ months past my procedure last summer and still couldn’t be happier. It’s a profound effect for those with moderate to severe hyperhidrosis–would still recommend 100%!
Great experience with Mirady for hyperhydrosis
As long as I can remember, I have had to worry about extreme perspiration on a daily basis. Social situations are especially stressful, and I only wear certain colors and styles of tops due to my hyperhydrosis. Today I saw Dr. Gerrish for Miradry, and it was an excellent experience. Dr. Gerrish is extremely knowledgeable and puts you at ease right away. His staff, especially Loretta, couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. The procedure consisted of 2 steps – numbing the underarms and then applying the Miradry device. The numbing process was so easy, and I felt maybe one or two small pinches and that was it. Once the underarms were numbed, the Miradry device was applied as a series of short pulses. I did not feel any heat or pain during this phase at all. At the end of the treatment, Dr. Gerrish discussed post-care with me, and I began icing the area. This evening, I have minimal swelling and little to no pain. I am very excited for my results, and it will be a huge relief not to worry or be embarrassed by my sweating. I would highly recommend Dr. Gerrish and his staff for this procedure!
“I have not noticed any sweating in the treated areas whatsoever. I have no pain or discomfort at all. I would definitely recommend the miraDry procedure!”
“I’ve had horrible sweating my whole life. I found out about miraDry last year and was able to get treated in time to attend my son’s wedding and dance, with no sweat! I am now able to do things like go to summer picnics and even just enjoy the outdoors, something most of us take for granted. I feel like I am starting a brand new life!”
Can I give more than five stars? Dr. Gerrish and his staff are OUTSTANDING and I’m so happy I chose them to do my MiraDry procedure! I was so nervous when I went the day of but they did an amazing job at putting my mind at ease and he truly has the gentlest touch; I barely felt a thing! If you’re considering any procedures in the future, stop considering and go with the best! They will exceed your expectations and more!
