After your underarm has been numbed and is ready to be treated, the clinician will place the handpiece directly on your skin, lining up with the temporary treatment template applied to your underarm.

Next, the handpiece is activated. You will feel a slight suction as your skin and glands are brought closer to the surface for maximum results.

Finally, miraWaveTM energy is delivered and the sweat and odor glands are destroyed. All the while, soothing cooling is applied to protect your skin.

Though sweating is essential to cool down the human body, however in some people, it is so excessive that they may sweat four or five times more than is necessary, or normal, which has no underlying medical or emotional cause. This is called Primary Hyperhidrosis. It can disrupt all aspects of a person’s life, from career choices and recreational activities to relationships, emotional well-being, and self-image. This is a serious medical condition and it affects millions of people around the world (approximately 3% of the population) but because of lack of awareness, more than half of these people are never diagnosed or treated for their symptoms.

While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 2-4 million sweat glands – only about 2% are found in your underarms. Eliminating this 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. With miraDry, you will experience the many benefits of reducing sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat in other areas of your body.

miraDry uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat, odor, and hair glands reside and safely eliminates them. 1,2
