What is miraDry?
miraDry is an FDA-cleared treatment that uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat and odor glands reside and safely eliminates them. Whether you are bothered by underarm sweat, frustrated by stained shirts, or just seeking a natural, toxin-free lifestyle, miraDry is a proven treatment to dramatically reduce excessive underarm sweating and odor with added benefits of hair reduction.
Is miraDry safe?
miraDry has been used in over 140,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record.
What results can I expect from miraDry treatment?
You can expect immediate and lasting results for your miraDry underarm treatment. The miraDry treatment completely eliminates the sweat and odor glands in the targeted area and is clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction and 89% odor reduction with 60% hair loss.
What happens during the miraDry procedure?
To begin the procedure, local anesthesia is administered to assure maximum comfort during the treatment. Your medical provider will then apply a temporary tattoo to mark the skin targeted for treatment. Then the device is applied directly to your skin. Once the device is activated you will feel some suction on your skin as the glands move closer to the surface for maximum results. Thermal heat is delivered and destroys the gland permanently. During this time your skin is also being cooled to help you remain comfortable.
How many miraDry treatments will I need?
If you are considering miraDry for a lifestyle change, typically one treatment. If you suffer from severe hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating), you may need two treatments.
How long does the miraDry procedure last?
A typical session will take up to one and half hour.
What should I expect for miraDry recovery?
Most miraDry treatment patients return to regular activity immediately. However, we encourage patients to refrain from exercise for a few days after the procedure. It’s not uncommon to experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity in the underarm area after treatment, but these side effects will resolve within a few weeks.
Are there miraDry procedure side effects?
Some localized soreness or swelling will occur, and typically clears within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
Will I start sweating in other places to compensate?
Not at all! While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 2-4 million sweat glands and only about 2% are found in your underarms. After your miraDry treatment you’ll experience the benefits of dry underarms while continuing to perspire normally elsewhere.
How long does miraDry treatment last?
