If you experience excessive sweating, the hotter summer months can be a challenge, leading to embarrassing underarm stains and odor. MiraDry can stop excessive sweating so you can stop worrying and stop spending money on prescription deodorant! Here’s what you need to know:
What is miraDry?
MiraDry is a device that uses electromagnetic energy to heat and safely destroy the sweat glands in the underarms. The treatment is noninvasive, using a cooling mechagnism to regulate the skin’s temperature and prevent any damage to the skin or surrounding tissue. Unike other sweat reduction methods like Botox injections, the results of miraDry are permanent! MiraDry is also safe for any skin color or type.
What can I expect during treatment?
Prior to receiving treatment with miraDry, you will receive a lidocaine injection to numb the underarm to ensure a comfortable treatment process. Next, the underarm is mapped out to show where the sweat glands are. The miraDry device will then be directed at the area to zap the sweat glands. In many cases, one treatment session is enough for effective results.
What happens after miraDry treatment?
After treating your underarms, you might experience some side effects such as tenderness, mild bruising, and swelling that will subside over the next few weeks. A less common side effect is an abnormal sensation in the underarms, but this will gradually resolve on its own. Once side effects diminish, you can enjoy sweat-free underarms! Some patients also report hair growth reduction in the underarms after receiving treatment. The results of miraDry are permanent, so you won’t have to worry about future touch up sessions once your optimal results have been reached.
