What is miraDry?
MiraDry is an innovative, non-invasive treatment that effectively treats underarm sweating without surgery. It utilizes electromagnetic energy to eliminate underarm sweat glands. It is an FDA-approved device and the procedure is performed in your doctor’s office. A local anesthetic is administered to the underarm with minimally invasive injections for comfort. The procedure uses precisely controlled energy. The results are long-lasting as sweat glands and odor glands do not regenerate. The miraDry procedure typically lasts about 1 1/2 hours, resulting in 98% reduction in sweating with just 1 treatment being needed for most patients with the new improved protocol. MiraDry is associated with minimal to no downtime and patients may resume their daily activities on the same day of treatment.
Other treatments for excessive sweating include prescription antiperspirants or BOTOX injections, which only temporarily stop the sweat glands. Both of these options need to be repeated regularly, which can be costly.
