How does it work?
It’s actually pretty simple. The miraDry ® system uses energy that targets and destroys the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are destroyed they do not grow back—so once they are gone, they are gone for good.
What kind of results can I expect?
Managing your underarm issues and the negative impact on your body, clothing, and self-confidence has been messy, time consuming, and costly. Now there is a solution! You can expect to have an immediate reduction in your sweat. Sweat glands don’t grow back so you should experience results that last. The amount of sweat reduction you desire should be discussed with your miraDry physician. As with any treatment, the results may vary from person to person.
Depending on what your typical day is like, downtime can be minimal to none. After treatment, you may experience temporary swelling, soreness, tingling and numbness in the treated area. These sensations typically clear up within a few days to a few weeks. There have been no reports of permanent side effects; however, some patients experience short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears. Most patients return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise and vigorous activity is typically resumed within several days. Please consult with your physicians for all possible side effects and to see if miraDry is right for you.
How long will the results last?
The preliminary studies showed that MiraDry results lasted 2 years however, since sweat glands can not regenerate themselves, the results should be permanent.
Don’t I need sweat glands?
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. After your miraDry ® treatment you will experience the many benefits of dry underarms, and you will continue to perspire normally elsewhere.
What is the treatment like?
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.
How many treatments will I need?
You will see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best treatment plan for your desired results.
Is the treatment painless?
Since your underarms are numbed prior to treatment, most patients experience little to no pain.
