For someone who sweats excessively, the hotter months can be especially uncomfortable. Even with prescription-strength deodorants and loose clothing, you might still be struggling with the embarrassment of excess sweat. Put an end to your sweating once and for all with miraDry®! Here’s what you need to know:
What is miraDry®?
MiraDry is an immediate, permanent solution to excessive underarm sweat. Using microwave technology, miraDry uses heat to permanently damage the sweat glands in the underarm, safely destroying them for good while keeping the skin cool and free from damage. At the same time, miraDry can heat and eliminate the hair follicle, resulting in permanent hair reduction in the armpit.
What can I expect during treatment?
The miraDry treatment process is an in-office treatment and is completely painless after local anesthetic is injected to numb the underarm. The underarm will be mapped out to determine where energy will be targeted. Next, the miraDry device will be applied sequentially to the underarm, destroying the sweat glad while protecting the surrounding skin and tissue. You can expect the process to take about an hour.
What happens after treatment?
After your treatment with miraDry, you can expect some soreness, tingling, and numbness in the underarms that should clear up in a few days. However, there is minimal downtime, so you can get right back to your normal routine! You can notice an immediate and permanent reduction of sweat and enjoy a dryer, more confident life.
