Get rid of unwanted armpit hair with miraSmooth – a new hair removal treatment using microwave technology to safely remove all hair colors on all skin types. The miraDry® system was first approved by the FDA for underarm sweat reduction, but now the system is also approved for hair removal. Developed by MiraMar labs, miraSmooth® uses precisely controlled microwave energy to effectively remove all hair color and skin types.
Patients choose miraSmooth when they experience unwanted body hair on the underarms. MiraSmooth can put an end to shaving and waxing with permanent hair removal for smooth underarms. Those with excessive sweating along with unwanted body hair can benefit from the miraDry system for smooth, dry underarms with one treatment system.
Miramar Lab’s proprietary miraWave® technology is the foundation of the miraDry® System. It uses precisely controlled microwave energy with the same wavelengths used in actual microwaves, however, the delivery method, depth of penetration, and safety aspect are completely different.
The miraSmooth® device emits heat deep beneath the skin, where the roots of the hairs and sweat glands are located. The heat destroys the hair roots with a permanent reduction of all hair colors. This type of technology is a breakthrough in the hair removal industry. Unlike traditional laser hair removal, microwave energy doesn’t require a chromophore to be effective therefore allowing it to be used on hair colors and skin types.
MiraSmooth is a non-invasive hair removal treatment performed in our office with no downtime. Upon arrival at the BioSpa® patients are taken into our miraSmooth treatment room. The armpit area is cleaned and a numbing cream is applied. If need be, a local anesthetic can be injected into the armpit to provide further comfort. Once the area is completely numb, one of our nurses or doctors will use a marker to outline a grid across the armpits. This grid is used to guide the device to precisely target the hair roots. The total treatment time is approximately one hour. One treatment may be all that is necessary to permanently remove all hair roots, however, some patients may require a second treatment for maximum elimination of hair.
After treatment with miraSmooth, there is no required downtime so patients can get right back to their regular activity. Patients may experience mild discomfort, redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising. Symptoms can be treated with ice packs and over the counter pain medication. Avoid heavy lifting and physical activity for 24 hours after treatment.
Everyone at BioSpa® is great to interact with and you can tell they're very passionate about helping their clients look their best. Highly recommended!
