miraDry – Sweat free, Odor free
Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff.
Or The Big Stuff.
If you’re one of the 1 in 5 people who suffer from embarrasing underarm sweating, El Paso Cosmetic Surgery has the solution. It’s called miraDry, a non-invasive in-office procedure that will leave you sweat-free under your arms forever. No more nervous perspiration. No more having to buy deodorant or antiperspirant. No more stains on your favorite clothing. And, no more underarm odor. Ever.
miraDry takes about an hour in the office. You’ll notice results immediately.
And while Dr. Sozer will determine the best protocol for your desired results, you’ll experience little to no discomfort since we use a local anesthesia before the treatment. Most people experience little downtime and return to normal activity right after treatment.
miraDry works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the underarm sweat glands. It provides a lasting reduction of underarm sweat because the sweat glands don’t grow back after treatment. Truth is, only 2% of over 4 million sweat glands found on our body are under our arms, so reducing a few sweat glands isn’t going to keep your body from cooling off. With over 30,000 successful treatments worldwide, you can feel confident and safe with miraDry.
miraDry is the only non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment to permanently eliminate the sweat and odor glands from your underarm area.
Compare costs of miraDry against living with more than normal sweat, ruined clothing, countless kinds of deodorant and antiperspirant and the physical and emotional embarrassment of nervous sweating, and the lifelong benefits that it provides make it significantly less expensive than you’d ever imagine. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person, but you should immediately notice an 82% reduction in underarm sweat.
Isn’t it time you eliminate the embarrassment, anxiety, social isolation and other negative personal and social consequences of unwanted perspiration in your life? The answer is dry; miraDry.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the miraDry® treatment?
miraDry is the only non-invasive, FDA cleared aesthetic treatment that safely removes underarm sweat and odor glands. It’s a quick in-office procedure that provides a permanent solution for underarm sweat.
Don’t I need sweat glands?
Not in your armpits! You are born with approximately 2 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. With miraDry you will experience the many benefits of stopping sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat elsewhere.
What is the procedure like?
Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment to assist in increasing comfort. Some patients describe the initial anesthetic injections as the most painful part of the procedure. There are no incisions or cuts. Treatment is customized to each underarm with multiple placements of the miraDry handpiece. An office visit appointment will generally last about one hour.
How does it work?
miraDry’s proprietary miraWave technology is the ideal wavelength for eliminating sweat and odor glands in the underarm. It non-invasively targets the area where the sweat glands reside and safely destroys them while simultaneously cooling your skin for added comfort.
What results can I expect?
You can expect immediate and lasting results – sweat glands don’t come back after treatment. The amount of sweat reduction you desire should be discussed with your miraDry physician. Recent clinical information confirms an average of 82% sweat reduction in most patients. As with any aesthetic treatment results will vary by person.
How many treatments will I need?
You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your expected results.
Is the procedure painless?
Since local anesthesia is administered to the underarm prior to treatment, most patients experience little to no pain. Patients rated treatment pain on an average score of 2 on a scale from 1 to 10 (1 = no pain, 10= worst pain).
Is there any downtime?
Most patients experience minimal downtime and return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days post-treatment.
Are there any side effects?
The miraDry treatment has a strong safety record. 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.
How much does it cost?
Pricing can vary depending on your specific treatment protocol and will be discussed during your consultation.
