Las Vegas cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, offers as solution to his patients who battle daily excessive sweating. Known as hyperhidrosis, this can be more than just an embarrassing problem. It can seriously impact a person’s 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 noninvasive treatment, meaning, there is little to no downtime following the procedure appointment. During the procedure, the miraDry hand device 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.

Men and women who have excessive underarm sweating, otherwise known as hyperhidrosis, may be a candidate for MiraDry. These individuals typically have stained clothing due to the sweat and the antiperspirants used to try and combat the problem. Excessive sweating is also uncomfortable. People who would like to reduce or completely stop their dependence on special antiperspirants 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.
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. Patients can return to work after having the procedure done. It is recommended that to wait several days before exercising so that the area is given a chance to heal completely.
How is miraDry Performed?@headingTag>
A trained practitioner performs miraDry in our office. The hand-held device is placed directly onto the underarm region where it can target the sweat glands under the skin. The energy pulses from the device cause the sweat glands to be eliminated immediately. Although it is a noninvasive 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.
Number of Treatments?@headingTag>
It is recommended that patients get two treatments spaced approximately 2-3 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.
Is miraDry Safe?@headingTag>
The miraDry system is FDA approved to treat excessive underarm sweating. It is safer than other options, such as surgery, because it is noninvasive. It is also a lasting solution because sweat glands do no regenerate. If you are looking for a viable solution to an embarrassing problem that has impacted your life, then miraDry might be a suitable treatment option for you.
