We all sweat. After all, sweating helps regulate our body temperature.
However, if you suffer from excessive underarm sweat—also known as hyperhidrosis—you know there’s nothing normal about it. It leaves you feeling embarrassed and distressed at the simple thought of lifting your arms.
Now imagine a lifetime of freedom from antiperspirants, deodorants, and shaving!
Who wouldn’t want that?
Luckily, there’s miraDry®, a non-invasive, FDA approved hyperhidrosis treatment that provides 82% improvement in excessive sweating, leaving your underarms dry and comfortable. Think it sounds too good to be true? Think again.

How Does miraDry® Treatment Work?
After applying topical anesthesia to the area, the miraDry® handheld device is placed against the skin to deliver energy to the dermal-fat interface region, where sweat glands are found. The energy is concentrated on the sweat glands and destroys them. Simultaneously, a cooling system keeps the upper dermis and deeper tissues of the skin at a safe temperature.
The treatment takes about 60 minutes, two treatment sessions are recommended for best results. The time between the first and second treatment is about three months. In addition, the patients reported a significant decrease or elimination of armpit body odor.

What’s the Treatment Like?
It’s actually pretty simple. The miraDry ® system uses energy that targets and destroys the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are destroyed they do not grow back—so once they are gone, they are gone for good. miraDry treatment causes little or no discomfort. It is an outpatient procedure that is non-invasive and requires no downtime.
Patients who undergo miraDry® treatment can return to their regular activities the same day. Minor swelling and soreness in the treatment area is normal and subsides within a few weeks. Some patients may experience edema and loss of sensation in the area, all of which is considered part of the healing process. The final results and recovery are achieved within weeks.
