If embarrassing underarm sweat outbreaks, stained clothing or frequent antiperspirant application interfere with your daily life, you may be a good candidate for the miraDry procedure.
MiraDry is a quick, noninvasive procedure performed in our office that is FDA-cleared to provide lasting results. It uses precisely controlled energy to eliminate underarm sweat glands, and because the glands don’t grow back, the results are dramatic and lasting.
What happens during the procedure?
The treatment is customized for each patient with multiple placements of the miraDry system. Your underarms will be numbed for your comfort. The procedure typically takes an hour.
What happens after the procedure?
You can expect minimal to no downtime. Your physician may recommend a mild over-the-counter pain medication and use of ice packs for a few days. You should be able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure.
What results can I expect?
Most patients report a dramatic reduction of their underarm sweat – in a recent clinical study the average underarm sweat reduction was 82%. Two procedures spaced three months apart are required to maximize the results and duration.
Here’s PROOF that MiraDry really does reduce sweat permanently …
The results of a recently published two-year study show that the immediate sweat reduction achieved by miraDry remained the same for two years. And since sweat and odor glands do not regenerate, these results are expected to be permanent. Obviously, this is a tremendous breakthrough, not only for excessive sweaters but for anyone who manages nuisance sweat and odor. Everyone sweats, but now, with miraDry, you can choose not to.
The study published in the journal Dermatologic Surgery reported1:
- Greater than 90% efficacy
- 70% reduction in the number of patients reporting the problematic odor
- Greater than 90% of patients had a dramatic improvement in the quality of life-based on DLQI score reduction
- Among the highest patient satisfaction of any aesthetic procedure
Since its launch, the miraDry system has been used in over 30,000 treatments worldwide and currently boasts a 90% patient satisfaction rating in commercial use, among the highest of all aesthetic procedures. This tremendously high patient satisfaction — along with these substantiated study results — are solid proof that the miraDry system delivers on its promise to reduce your sweat permanently!
