Say Goodbye to Embarrassing Sweat Stains
For those who are looking for relief from overactive sweat glands, MiraDry is an excellent and permanent option. MiraDry is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that reduces overactive sweat gland activity to give patients peace of mind and freedom from embarrassing sweat stains.
What Is MiraDry?
MiraDry is an FDA approved and clinically-proven method to reduce underarm sweat.
Benefits also include a reduction in odor and hair growth. MiraDry is versatile and effective for treating individuals with any skin type and tone.
How MiraDry Works
The MiraDry system uses cutting-edge, MiraWAVE energy, to penetrate the skin and target the sweat and odor-causing glands. The uniquely designed handpiece also employs suction and cooling for maximized control and protection of surrounding skin tissue. Only the sweat glands are targeted and treated. Since sweat glands do not regenerate, the results of a treatment are long lasting and the sweat glands cannot grow back.
Individuals with hyperhidrosis or those who generally struggle to control their underarm sweat are good candidates for treatment. The treatment is recommended for healthy adults free of any serious skin conditions that may interfere with the results of a treatment. Individuals who require supplemental oxygen, have a pacemaker, or other serious medical conditions may not be appropriate candidates.
A single MiraDry session can take about one hour to perform from start to finish. The entire treatment is performed in-office. Since it is non-surgical and non-invasive, local anesthesia is used to numb the treatment area. Before treatment, the target area is predetermined and marked for accuracy. As the MiraDry system delivers the heat-energy to the sweat glands, you will not feel anything since the local anesthesia is at work. You may feel the suction of the treatment head as it draws your skin closer to maximize energy penetration.
Redness and swelling are common in the treated area and may last for up to two weeks. Discomfort in the armpits may last for a few days; over the counter pain medication is adequate to manage your symptoms. After your treatment is complete, there is little to no downtime. If your normal routine consists only of light activity, you can immediately resume your regular activities. Moderate to intense physical activity may need to be avoided for a few days.
Each MiraDry treatment is customized according to your needs and the number of sessions required to achieve the desired results.
