How Does miraDry® Work to Reduce Sweat?

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition affecting millions worldwide. It often causes excessive underarm sweating, an embarrassing and uncomfortable condition that can negatively affect your quality of life. Revolutionary miraDry® provides a long-lasting solution for hyperhidrosis. It allows you to regain confidence and feel more comfortable in your skin.

What is miraDry® for Excessive Sweating?

Non-invasive miraDry® is an effective treatment for excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis. It uses electromagnetic energy to target sweat glands in your underarms, stopping them from producing sweat. As a bonus, miraDry® reduces underarm odor and can even reduce hair growth. This treatment offers a new way to treat hyperhidrosis with lasting results.

How Does miraDry® Work to Reduce Sweat?

MiraDry® works by using electromagnetic energy to eliminate sweat glands. The treatment targets the sweat glands specifically, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. 

During the treatment, the miraDry® handpiece delivers electromagnetic energy to the sweat glands. The sweat glands absorb this energy, creating heat that deactivates them and stops them from producing sweat. Only about 2% of your sweat glands occur in the underarm area, so you can safely eliminate these without causing any issues. 

What is miraDry® Treatment Like?

Your entire appointment will usually take about an hour. Your provider will use a local anesthetic to numb your underarms, then begin treatment. You may feel some heat, but the built-in cooling system keeps your skin’s surface from overheating. Most people who have miraDry® at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery rate their discomfort at a two out of ten and have no trouble tolerating it. 

Is There Any Downtime With miraDry®?

You can return to your usual activities after miraDry® with no downtime. You may experience a few days of swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity. You will receive instructions on when you can resume strenuous activities or exercise. Avoid exposing your underarm area to harsh or irritating products for the first few days.

What Results Will I See With miraDry®?

You can expect an immediate and noticeable decrease in underarm sweating. The odor also disappears without the warm, moist environment created by excessive sweating. You will even notice less hair in the underarm area since hair follicles also absorb electromagnetic energy. People who have miraDry® see an average of 82% less sweat in the treated area. 

Am I a Good Candidate for miraDry® to Reduce Sweat?

Most people with hyperhidrosis make good candidates for miraDry®. This non-invasive treatment works safely on most skin types and tones. You might be an especially good candidate for miraDry® if you have not succeeded with antiperspirants and prefer an alternative that lasts longer than treatments like Botox®. 

You might not be a good candidate if you have a medical device such as a pacemaker. We also do not recommend miraDry® in you are pregnant, have irritated or broken skin in the underarm area, or have certain medical conditions.
