Whether you sweat a little or sweat a lot, now you’ll sweat no more! No more deodorants or antiperspirants and no more underarm odor.
miraDry is the only non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment that removes the sweat and odor glands from your underarm area. Truth is, only 2% of over 4 million sweat glands found on our bodies 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.
What is miraDry?
miraDry works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, removing the underarm sweat glands. It provides a lasting reduction of underarm sweat because the sweat glands don’t grow back after treatment.
miraDry’s proprietary miraWave technology is the ideal wavelength for removing 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 is a miraDry Treatment 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 increased comfort. Some patients describe the initial anesthetic injections as the most painful part of the procedure. There are no incisions or cuts. The treatment is customized to each underarm with multiple placements of the miraDry handpiece. An office visit appointment will generally last about one hour.
Recovery and Results After a miraDry Treatment?
Most patients experience minimal downtime and are able to return to regular activities, such as work or school. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days post-treatment.
You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician/provider will determine the best protocol for your expected results. You can expect 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. The treatment is also recommended by the International Hyperhidrosis Society. As with any aesthetic treatment, results will vary by person.
Am I a Good miraDry Candidate?
miraDry is great for both men and women over the age of 18. A proper evaluation by one of our miraDry specialists is required to determine whether you are a candidate for this non-invasive procedure. You may be a candidate for miraDry if you:
- Suffer excessive underarm sweating
- Are tired of purchasing deodorants or antiperspirants
- Are frequently embarrassed due to underarm sweating, and it prevents you from fully enjoying your life
