Sweat Elimination (MiraDry®) Improving patient results and care
MiraDry is a quick in-office treatment that permanently eliminates underarm sweat and odor glands with minimal to no downtime. It uses thermal energy to treat the sweat and odor glands while permanently destroying hair follicles. Most patients see results in as little as one treatment and report an average of 85% reduction in underarm sweat and odor. It is a viable solution to get rid of embarrassing situations associated with excessive perspiration.
The body contains 2-4 million sweat glands and only about 2% are located in the armpits. Permanently removing these underarm sweat glands does not adversely affect your body’s ability to cool itself.
This treatment can be safely performed on men and women who do not want to worry about their underarms. It can help remove any concerns associated with the use of deodorants or resulting stains on shirts.
The procedure takes about 90 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia. You can expect some soreness, swelling, numbness, and tingling that usually resolves within 1-2 weeks.
