Here's what you need to know

miraDry® technology utilizes theramal energy to permanently reduce underarm sweat and odor in a one-hour treatment. And as an added bonus, underarm hair is also eliminated

Thermal energy is used to create heat in the armpit area and safely eliminate sweat and odor glands, as well as hair follicles in the armpit.

Results are immediate! And PERMANENT.

However, as with any treatment, results may vary from patient to patient.

You may attain the results you want with just one treatment, but it might take two to get the results you are looking for. Clinical studies have demonstrated an average reduction of 82% in underarm sweat in one to two treatments.

Ladies, as far as hair removal, you can expect a 60-70 percent reduction in underarm hair and men, not to worry, there will be a thinning of your underarm hair, but you will still have hair!

Think about it, no more antiperspirants, no more sweat stained shirts, no more pit odor. And best of all, you can accomplish this with no downtime!

It's a WIN-WIN

Here's how it works

The treatment is complete in about one hour and you will see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any medical treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your desired results.

During the procedure, most patients experience little to no pain. After the procedure is complete, your underarm area is cleaned and you are ready to go! An ice pack may be applied to reduce potential swelling.

You will be able to return to your normal activities, but it is recommended that you avoid vigorous activities with your arms for several days after your procedure. Your doctor will instruct you as to the protocol you should follow.

During the first 24 hours after treatment, there may be brusing and you may experience shaking, numbness or tingling in your arms. There may also be some localized soreness or swelling which clears graduatually.

Frequently Asked Questions

Don't I need sweat glands?

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.

How does it work

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

What results can I expect?

You can expect immediate and lasting results. Once the miraDry® treatment eliminates the sweat, odor, and hair glands, they're gone for good. Clinical studies show an average of 82% sweat reduction. As with any aesthetic treatment results, patient results and experience may vary.

How many treatments will I need?

You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your desired results.

How long does it take?

An office visit appointment will generally last about one hour.

Is there any pain or downtime?

Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for patient comfort. Most patients experience little to no downtime and return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days post-treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Some localized soreness or swelling will occur, and typically clears within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.

How much does it cost?

Pricing can vary depending on the treatment protocol to achieve your desired results and will be discussed during your consultation.
