Do you have embarrassing underarm sweating or odor? If so, you’re not alone. This is a common issue that many men and women face. The good news is miraDry can help. miraDry is the only FDA-cleared treatment that can significantly reduce underarm sweat and odor in a single appointment. Let’s take a closer look at how miraDry works.
What to Expect From miraDry
miraDry uses the power of microwave technology to target and damage the sweat glands under your arms. Prior to the treatment, one of our dermatologists will numb the area with a local anesthetic so that you’re comfortable throughout the procedure. The miraDry device will then deliver precisely controlled energy to the underarm area where the sweat glands can be found. These glands will be eliminated and won’t regenerate.
Although miraDry comes with minimal downtime, you may experience a bit of bruising and swelling for a few days after the treatment.
Benefits of miraDry
One of the greatest benefits of miraDry is that it’s a permanent way to resolve excessive underarm sweating. You won’t have to think about whether or not you’ve worn enough deodorant or antiperspirants and be able to enjoy life to the fullest. In fact, most patients need only a single miraDry procedure for life-changing resolution of their excessive sweating.
On average miraDry patients experience an 82% reduction in sweating and 89% decrease in odor with a single treatment. A minority of patients benefit from a second procedure to achieve their desired results.
Good Candidates for miraDry
If you’re living with excessive underarm sweating and believe it takes a serious toll on your quality of life, miraDry can be a fit. It can reduce any social anxiety you may experience and allow you to live life without embarrassing sweat and odor. You may be a good fit for this treatment if you answer “yes” to any of these statements.
