What is MiraDry?
MiraDry is a unique, FDA-approved treatment that permanently reduces sweat. This nonsurgical treatment can be completed in just one hour and can be used to reduce sweat and odor. This treatment may also cause hair loss from the underarms.
Who Can Benefit from MiraDry?
Both men and women who suffer from hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, in the underarms can benefit from MiraDry treatment. Those who have heart pacemakers or other implants, skin conditions such as Hidranitis Suppurative, or who are pregnant should not undergo MiraDry treatment. It may also not be your best option if you had previous axillary surgery. During a consultation, your health and hyperhidrosis symptoms can be evaluated to see if MiraDry treatment is your best option.
How Does MiraDry Work?
MiraDry uses heat through electromagnetic energy to destroy two types of sweat and hair glands in the underarms. This means that following treatment, you will no longer be able to sweat from your underarms. However, your body can still naturally cool itself through the remaining healthy sweat glands throughout the rest of the body—only about 2% of all sweat glands are located in the underarms. To begin the treatment, local anesthesia is used to numb the treatment area. During treatment, the MiraDry device is placed on the underarms, and thermal energy is directed through the device to the treatment area. This process can be completed in about an hour. Most patients will require just one treatment session and can return home immediately after the procedure with no downtime.
Why Does MDSKin Offer MiraDry?
Excessive sweating affects many people and can be an embarrassing condition. Many people find that their excessive sweat is visible through clothing or causes bad body odor, leading to self-consciousness. MiraDry is a safe, effective, and simple treatment option that can relieve this stress for many patients.
What Can Be Expected After MiraDry Treatment?
Following MiraDry treatment, you may notice some redness, tenderness, bruising, or swelling in the underarm area. These symptoms should be minor and temporary. No downtime is required, meaning that you can return to your normal routine immediately after your appointment. It is best to avoid exercise for several days after MiraDry. During a consultation, your MiraDry specialist will explain what you can expect after treatment.
