For the reduction of underarm sweat, hair, and odor.
miraDry is the only FDA-cleared, onetime treatment that can dramatically reduce underarm sweat, odor, and hair. It is permanent, non-surgical, and gives immediate results. Your body contains 2-4 million sweat glands. Only about 2% of sweat glands are found in your underarms. Eliminating this 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself.
How It Works
Local anesthesia is administered to ensure maximum comfort during the procedure.
A temporary tattoo is applied to mark the skin in preparation for treatment. This serves as a guiding post for the medical professional administering the treatment.
Thermal energy is applied to the underarm area in eleven second spurts for the duration of one hour.
Frequently Asked Questions
Don’t I need sweat glands?
While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 2-4 million sweat glands and only about 2% are found in your underarms. Eliminating 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. After miraDry, you will experience the many benefits of reducing sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat normally in other areas of your body.
How does it work?
miraDry uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat and odor glands reside and safely eliminates them.
What results can I expect?
You can expect immediate and lasting results. Once the miraDry treatment eliminates the sweat and odor glands, they’re gone for good. The treatment is clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction and 89% odor reduction. As with any aesthetic treatment, patient results and experiences may vary.
How long does it take?
An appointment will generally last about one hour.
Is there any pain or downtime?
Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for patient comfort.
