What is miraDry?
A safe, FDA-cleared sweat reduction solution, miraDry is a non-surgical treatment that is clinically proven to reduce sweating. Prescription antiperspirants, botulinum toxin A injections and oral medications just temporarily reduce the problem, whereas miraDry provides long-lasting relief without surgery.
The treatment uses electromagnetic energy to heat the sweat glands under the arm, eliminating them. Sweat glands do not regenerate, making the results of this procedure very long-lasting. It is non-invasive (no cuts or incisions needed) and requires no downtime. Results can be seen immediately after treatment. In one clinical study, patients experienced an average of 82% reduction in underarm sweat.
Is miraDry Painful?
Before your miraDry treatment, we will numb the underarm area using a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. You may feel pressure, a pulling sensation and feelings of warmth. On a 1 to 10 pain scale (10 being the highest), the average discomfort level is 2. Treatment takes about an hour and is typically well tolerated, both during and after treatment.
After treatment, you may experience some discomfort, but this is usually controlled quite easily with over-the-counter pain medications and ice packs. You can return to normal activities (including most careers) immediately. Avoid exercise for a few days.
