What is miraDry®?
Do you constantly worry about your underarm sweat leaving embarrassing stains on your favorite clothes? Does underarm odor cause you to forego social situations? If you are tired of living with unwanted underarm sweat stains and body odor due to excessive sweating, miraDry may be for you! miraDry is a noninvasive, FDA-cleared treatment to resolve your underarm sweat problems. This treatment eliminates sweat and odor glands, leaving you feeling dry, clean, and confident.
How is the miraDry® Treatment Done?
The miraDry treatment is done in-office and is completely painless. Local anesthesia will be administered to the underarms to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. Then, the miraDry handpiece will emit focused energy to eliminate sweat and odor glands in the underarm while protecting the overlying skin. This treatment can also eliminate underarm hair of all colors. One treatment of both underarms usually lasts about one hour. Results can be seen in as little as one treatment, so you can start feeling your best right away!
miraDry results are immediate and permanent, so sweat glands will not come back after treatment. There is minimal downtime with only mild pain, swelling, and bruising for a few days, so regular activities can be resumed almost immediately. Mild numbness, sensitivity, and lumpiness may occur in the treated areas but should resolve within a few weeks. The amount of sweat and odor reduction is usually satisfactory with just one treatment, but in a few patients a second, or rarely, even a third treatment, may be required to achieve desired results.
