Excessive underarm sweating can cause frustration and embarrassment. Many men struggle with axillary hyperhidrosis, and many continue to struggle with excess sweat despite professional treatments. Revolutionary miraDry® provides lifelong relief from excessive underarm sweat by treating it at the source. 

What is MiraDry® for Men?

MiraDry® is an FDA-approved solution for excessive underarm sweat in men and women. This revolutionary, non-invasive treatment provides a convenient, quick, and safe alternative to traditional methods of managing excessive sweat such as prescription antiperspirants or Botox®. Unlike other treatments, miraDry® results last a lifetime, often after just one session. 

How Does MiraDry® Work for Hyperhidrosis?

During miraDry® treatment, your underarm area is treated with a local anesthetic to prevent any discomfort. This treatment works by using targeted microwave energy that affects the sweat glands in your skin. The sweat glands absorb this energy, generating heat that deactivates them. As a result, you can expect a significant reduction in underarm sweating and odor. 

How Much is MiraDry® For Men?

The cost of miraDry® depends on several factors, including location and provider. At Krauss Dermatology, board-certified dermatologists administer the local anesthetic and oversee the work of an experienced medical aesthetician who will provide the treatment. We typically charge about $2000 for miraDry® treatment. However, this may vary, so we recommend a consultation for a more definitive answer. 

How Many MiraDry® Treatments Will I Need?

Typically, one to two miraDry® treatments are recommended for optimal results. The first treatment eliminates the majority of sweat glands in the underarm area, and the second treatment will target any that remain. Most men experience a significant reduction in sweat after the first treatment, and after the second treatment, the results are usually permanent. The number of treatments needed can vary based on individual factors such as the severity of their hyperhidrosis.

Is There Any Downtime With MiraDry®?

There is little to no downtime associated with miraDry®. Most men can return to normal activities immediately after the treatment, although mild discomfort, redness, and swelling in the underarm area often occur. These side effects typically resolve within a few days. Many people notice a decrease in sweat within days of their first treatment. 

Am I a Good Candidate for MiraDry® for Men?

Most men with excessive underarm sweating make good candidates for miraDry®. This treatment works safely on all skin types and tones. It allows men to end their struggle with excessive sweating, often in just one treatment. The best candidates have underarm hyperhidrosis, and other treatments have not given you the level of control you want.
