miraDry’s proprietary miraWave technology is the ideal wavelength for eliminating sweat and odor glands in the underarm. It non-invasively targets the area where the sweat glands reside and safely destroys them while simultaneously cooling your skin for added comfort. Unlike lasers, miraWave doesn’t rely on hair color to work - which is what makes this procedure so revolutionary. Hair follicles that are located in the area where we deliver energy can be destroyed regardless of color or hair growth stage. Sweat and odor glands are also located in the area we’re delivering energy so those can also be destroyed.*
Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little downtime*. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment to assist in increasing comfort. Some patients describe the initial anesthetic injections as the most painful part of the procedure. There are no incisions or cuts. Treatment is customized to each underarm with multiple placements of the miraDry® handpiece. An office visit appointment will generally last about one hour.*
Not in your armpits! You are born with approximately 2 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. With miraDry® you will experience the many benefits of stopping sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat elsewhere.
The amount of sweat reduction you desire should be discussed with your miraDry® physician. Recent clinical information confirms an average of 82% sweat reduction in most patients. As with any aesthetic treatment results will vary by person.
You will be in a reclined position for about one hour. You aren’t likely to feel anything during the treatment since your underarms will be numbed prior to treatment. After treatment, you may experience swelling, soreness, tingling and numbness in the treated area. These sensations typically clear-up within a few days to a few weeks.*
You could see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your expected results.
Since local anesthesia is administered to the underarm prior to treatment, most patients experience little to no pain*. Patients rated treatment pain on an average score of 2 on a scale from 1 to 10 (1= no pain, 10= worst pain).
Most patients experience minimal 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.*
The miraDry® treatment has a strong safety record. 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.*
Pricing can vary depending on your specific treatment protocol and will be discussed during your consultation.
