What Is MiraDry?

MiraDry is a state-of-the-art treatment designed to relieve individuals who experience excessive underarm sweating. The therapy uses microwave technology to heat and destroy sweat glands in the underarm area, which reduces the number and size of the glands, resulting in a significant reduction in sweat production. MiraDry also targets odor-causing bacteria in the underarm area, eliminating unpleasant smells. The procedure is non-invasive, FDA-approved, and requires little to no downtime.

Science Behind MiraDry

MiraDry uses microwave technology to heat and destroy sweat glands in the underarm area. Sweat glands are located in the deep layers of the skin, and traditional antiperspirants only cover the surface. MiraDry targets these glands directly, reducing their number and size and significantly reducing underarm sweat.

The microwave energy used in MiraDry also effectively destroys odor-causing bacteria in the underarm area. This means that MiraDry reduces sweat and eliminates the unpleasant odor that often accompanies excessive sweating.

What To Expect During A Treatment

MiraDry is a quick and painless procedure that can be completed in just one hour. Before the treatment, the underarm area is numbed with a local anesthetic to ensure patient comfort. The MiraDry handpiece is placed on the underarm during the treatment, and microwave energy is delivered to the sweat glands. Patients may feel a slight suction or pressure, but the procedure is generally painless.

After the treatment, patients may experience some swelling, soreness, or numbness in the underarm area, but these side effects typically resolve within a few days. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure, with no downtime required.

Benefits of MiraDry

MiraDry is a non-invasive treatment that has become popular for those with hyperhidrosis, aging, or excessive underarm sweating. Here are some of the many benefits of MiraDry:

  • Reduced Sweat: MiraDry significantly reduces underarm sweat, providing long-lasting relief for those who struggle with hyperhidrosis. Patients typically experience an 80-90% reduction in sweat after one treatment.
  • Improved Confidence: Excessive sweating can be embarrassing and limit one’s wardrobe choices. MiraDry can help individuals regain their confidence and feel comfortable wearing whatever they choose.
  • No More Odor: Sweat can also cause unpleasant odors, which can be embarrassing and frustrating. MiraDry reduces sweat and eliminates odor-causing bacteria in the underarm area.
  • Non-Invasive: Unlike other treatments for hyperhidrosis, such as surgery or prescription antiperspirants, MiraDry is a non-invasive procedure that does not require incisions or general anesthesia.
  • Quick Procedure: MiraDry is a quick procedure that takes only about an hour to complete. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
  • Long-Lasting Results: MiraDry is a one-time treatment that provides long-lasting results. Most patients do not need to repeat the treatment, though some may opt for a touch-up session.
  • Safe and FDA-Approved: MiraDry is a safe and FDA-approved treatment option for hyperhidrosis. It has been used by thousands of patients with excellent results and minimal side effects.
  • Cost-Effective: While the cost of MiraDry may seem high initially, it is cost-effective in the long run, considering the significant reduction in sweat and odor, no need for ongoing antiperspirant use, and the avoidance of more expensive treatments.
  • Improved Quality of Life: MiraDry can significantly improve one’s quality of life by reducing excessive sweating, odor, and the negative impacts these issues have on self-esteem, social life, and career opportunities.

Who Is A Good Candidate?
