Answers to our most frequently asked miraDry® questions.
miraDry® uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat and odor glands reside and safely eliminates them. Once those glands are eliminated, they do not grow back. Goodbye, sweat stains!
You can expect immediate and lasting results.1 Once the miraDry® treatment eliminates the sweat and odor glands, they’re gone for good. The treatment is clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction and 89% odor reduction.1,5 As with any aesthetic treatment, patient results and experiences may vary. Most patients see significant reduction in just one treatment, however, patients who suffer from severe Hyperhydrosis may need two treatments.
While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 2-4 million sweat glands and only about 2% are found in your underarms.2 Eliminating 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. After miraDry® you will experience the many benefits of reducing sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat normally in other areas of your body.®
Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for patient comfort. Most patients 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 after treatment. We recommend icing as much as possible after your treatment for a quick, comfortable recovery!
Some localized soreness or swelling will occur, and typically clear within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
Yes, miraDry® has been used in over 140,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record.3 It’s also been cleared by the FDA to dramatically reduce underarm sweat in as little as one appointment.1
