How Does miraDry Treatment Work?
The miraDry treatment will be conducted in our office with the handheld miraDry device. This non-invasive treatment works by using micro-energy waves to heat the sweat and odor glands in your armpits, eliminating them for good. This may sound uncomfortable, or even painful, but the miraDry device will constantly cool the outer layer of your skin, keeping you at a comfortable temperature. Before treatment, the medical professional conducting your treatment will also inject local anesthetic to your underarm, ensuring that you feel minimal pain throughout the entire process. Most patients who receive the MiraDry treatment also choose to use our Pro-Nox (laughing gas) pain management system to add an extra level of comfort.
Before the treatment begins, a temporary tattoo will be applied to your underarm to act as a guide for the medical professional. From start to finish, the MiraDry process is less than two hours, and there’s minimal downtime. You can head back to work as soon as you finish your session. After the MiraDry procedure is completed, most patients experience moderate swelling and tenderness in the treatment area, though this will typically resolve in 3-5 days.
Are There Risks Involved in the miraDry Treatment?
Even though miraDry permanently eliminates the sweat glands in your underarms, it does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. There are over 3 million sweat glands on your body, and only a small percentage of them (about 3%) are located in your armpits.
You can feel confident knowing that your MiraDry treatment is FDA-approved and will be carried out by an experienced medical professional.
How Long Does one miraDry Treatment Last?
MiraDry can permanently eliminate up to 90% of sweat & odor glands in a single treatment, however, for severe cases of Hyperhidrosis a followup treatment is recommended. Thankfully, your body does not regenerate the sweat and odor glands eliminated by MiraDry. If you are unsure how many treatments are right for you, our medical professionals would be happy to schedule a consultation with you to discuss your best options.
