The human body is designed to sweat. This is a natural reaction to our bodies being hot, the sweat glands activate as a way of cooling us down and preventing overheating. You have numerous sweat glands throughout your body, but the most well-known ones are under your arms.
Underarm sweat is normal, but there comes a point where excessive sweating can be a problem. Especially if this happens under ‘normal’ conditions, meaning you sweat a lot without being too hot. It can be very damaging for your self-confidence as you walk around with the fear of revealing sweat patches.
At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we’ve got a treatment that can help you deal with this very specific problem. miraDry® is a non-invasive procedure that produces long-lasting results for those suffering from excessive sweating.
What Does miraDry® Treat?
miraDry® is specifically designed to treat excessive underarm sweat. This is known as hyperhidrosis, and it affects millions of people across the country. The clinically proven technology behind the treatment is revolutionary, using electromagnetic energy to target the glands under your armpits.
The miraDry® device is placed onto your underarms. From here, electromagnetic energy is pulsed through your skin to the glands, heating them up. A burst of cooling energy is simultaneously applied to keep the skin cool and ensure the heat stays at the level of the sweat glands so the surrounding tissue isn’t damaged. Eventually, the glands absorb all the heat until they are destroyed. As a result, you can no longer sweat from under your arms, meaning sweat patches are a thing of the past!
How Long will miraDry® Last?
Forever! That’s correct, miraDry® is a permanent solution to excessive underarm sweating. By removing the sweat glands from your arms, it means you physically cannot sweat from this part of your body. The glands don’t grow back, so the results will last forever. 70% of the patients need only one treatment while 30% might need a second treatment.
Naturally, the key benefit is that you have a non-surgical approach to removing your sweat glands and preventing excessive sweating. Furthermore, the procedure is painless and leaves no scars, with minimal to no side effects. The cooling sensation helps to minimize discomfort during the treatment, and you can return to your normal routine without any recovery time at all.
Plus, miraDry® only targets 2% of the 4 million sweat glands in your body. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about the treatment stopping you from sweating and regulating body temperature.
Am I a Candidate for miraDry®?
If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, you will be a good candidate for miraDry® treatments. Patients with this condition experience lots of underarm sweating every day, even when it isn’t hot or you aren’t engaging in physical activities. Also, anyone that suffers from self-confidence issues due to underarm sweat patches will be a good candidate for the treatment.
I had miradry done at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery and absolutely love my results. I was clearly informed that 1-3 treatments may be required depending on the severity of sweat that is produced. So far I have zero sweat and odor after one month post treatment. I personally was not a heavy sweater, but my main decision to proceed was to elimate the use of chemical product to control the day to day sweat and odor. Love, love, love my results!
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.

Gracias a Dr. Sozer y a todo su personal por hacerme sentir una mamá mas joven y bella!!
