Treating Excessive Underarm Sweat with miraDry®
An FDA-approved treatment, miraDry is a clinically proven system for drastically reducing underarm sweating, including axillary (underarm) hyperhidrosis. (Source: FDA) Performed onsite in the comfort of your physician’s office, it is a non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime.
Underarm sweat is produced by two types of glands that reside just below the surface of this skin: eccrine and apocrine. Eccrine glands secrete a colorless, odorless fluid that helps regulate body temperature while the apocrine glands generate a thicker fluid that gives underarm sweat its distinctive odor.
How Does miraDry Work?
miraDry harnesses electromagnetic energy to create targeted heat in the area where sweat and odor glands reside and eliminates them while simultaneously keeping the surface of your skin cool for comfort and safety.
The procedure takes about an hour and a local anesthetic is applied to eliminate the occurrence of pain or discomfort during the treatment. While results will be immediate, your physician will work with you to determine if more sessions are required to achieve your desired results. Most patients see a drastic reduction in sweat after the first treatment, and do not require any additional sessions.*
What to Expect Following Treatment
Due to the non-invasive nature of miraDry, most patients experience little to no downtime and resume normal activity directly following the treatment. In many cases, patients also experience a significant loss of hair in the underarm area.*
Why Choose miraDry?
Simply put, miraDry is the only non-invasive treatment available on the market that offers immediate and lasting results for excessive underarm sweat as the miraDry treatment neutralizes the sweat glands.*
