miraDry uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat and odor glands reside and safely eliminates them.
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.
You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your desired results.
An appointment will generally last about one hour.
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. Most patients return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days after treatment.
miraDry has been used in over 140,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record. It’s also been cleared by the FDA to dramatically reduce underarm sweat in as little as one appointment.
Of course! But not from your underarms. You’re born with approximately 2-4 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. After your miraDry treatment you will experience the many benefits of dry underarms, and you will continue to perspire normally elsewhere.
Some localized soreness or swelling will occur, and typically clear within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
Pricing can vary depending on the treatment protocol to achieve your desired results and will be discussed during your consultation with your physician. According to RealSelf.com, miraDry treatments are generally about $2,000 nationwide.
