“miraDry Procedure” – Noninvasive Treatment for Excessive Underarm Sweat (Hyperhidrosis)
Stop excessive sweating without surgery
What is miraDry?
Excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis) can be more than just an embarrassing problem. It can seriously impact your quality of life. Taking care of excessive underarm perspiration with FDA-approved miraDry can help relieve the symptoms in a safe and effective manner. The miraDry procedure for excessive sweating is a non-invasive treatment, meaning that there is little to no downtime following your appointment.
During the procedure, the miraDry handpiece is applied directly to the underarm area by one of our trained clinicians. The system targets the sweat glands and uses specialized energy pulses to eliminate them. Once the sweat glands are eliminated, they do not return. This reduces the amount of sweat that is produced in the underarm region.
Who Is A Good Candidate For miraDry?
If you have excessive underarm sweating otherwise known as hyperhidrosis, then you probably have stained clothing due to the sweat and the anti-persperants you use to try to combat the problem. Excessive sweating is also uncomfortable. People who would like to reduce or completely stop their dependence on special anti-persperants and who also want to stop dealing with the uncomfortable and unsightly sweat in the underarm region are potential candidates for this type of treatment.
How Is The Procedure Performed?
The miraDry procedure is performed in an office by a trained clinician. The handpiece is placed directly onto the underarm region where it can target the sweat glands under the skin. The energy pulses from the handpiece cause the sweat glands to be eliminated immediately. Although it is a non-invasive procedure, local anesthesia is used to reduce discomfort during the treatment. Most patients spend about an hour in the office and can resume normal activity right away.
How Many Treatments Does It Take To See Results?
It is recommended that patients get two treatments spaced approximately three months apart in order to see the best results. Results are seen directly following the initial treatment, with most patients seeing a drastic reduction in the amount of sweat that is produced. In a recent clinical study, most patients reported at least an 80% perspiration reduction following the procedure.
What Is The Recovery Time After miraDry?
Most patients can resume normal activity directly following the procedure. Icepacks are generally recommended for a few days afterward to reduce any potential swelling or discomfort. You can return to work after having the procedure done. It is recommended that you wait several days before exercising so that the area is given a chance to heal completely.
Is miraDry Safe?
The miraDry system is FDA approved to treat excessive underarm sweating. It is safer than other options, such as surgery, because it is non-invasive. It is also a long-lasting solution because sweat glands do no regenerate. If you are looking for a long-term solution to an embarrassing problem that has impacted your life, then miraDry might be a viable treatment option for you.
