miraDry uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat, odor, and hair glands reside and safely eliminates them.
While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body contains 2-4 million sweat glands – only about 2% are found in your underarms. Eliminating this 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself.
The treatment is typically complete in one hour.
You should see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any medical procedure, your physician will determine the best protocol for your desired results.
Since local anesthesia is administered prior to treatment, the treatment is painless. There is little to no downtime with the miraDry treatment. You may experience some localized soreness and swelling, which typically clears within a few weeks.
Once the miraDry treatment eliminates the sweat, odor, and hair glands, they’re gone for good.
