MiraDry® is a device that utilizes innovative technology similar to your microwave to permanently eliminate glands in the underarm area. It is only available in medical practices. MiraDry® uses electromagnetic energy, which is proven to be the ideal method for treating the sweat and odor glands in the underarm. The glands are safely destroyed, using targeted heat to the underarm. Your body has an abundance of sweat glands, so there is no need to worry about getting rid of the ones in your underarm. Your body has plenty more and will not have any problem regulating its temperature after treatment. The miraDry® system continuously cools your skin during treatment for added comfort and safety. MiraDry® can be used on any man or woman regardless of skin color or type.
MiraDry® is the best cure for hyperhidrosis because it is:
Botox® is not an optimal treatment for sweat reduction because it requires ongoing treatments, a continual financial investment, and is not entirely effective or long lasting for many people.
Our miraDry® specialist meets with each patient prior to the treatment to go over the procedure and answer any questions. Next, lidocaine injections are administered to numb the underarm area prior to treatment. There will be little to no pain while our technician performs the procedure. In a study performed by miraDry®, patients rated pain a 2 out of 10 (1 being no pain, 10 being worst pain). The underarms are then marked with what looks like a temporary tattoo in the form of a grid. The treatment takes about one hour. Most of our patients will see results in as little as one treatment, however, as with any medical treatment, this will vary from patient to patient.
The vast majority of our Newport Beach miraDry® patients experience minimal downtime and return to their regular activities immediately following treatment. There can be swelling, minor bruising, and tenderness of the underarms, which should subside within a couple of weeks. We recommend avoiding strenuous activity requiring use of the arms until symptoms have resolved. Some patients have short-term altered sensation of the underarm skin or upper arms. This will gradually disappear. If any of these side effects occur, we recommend avoiding strenuous activities requiring use of your arms until they have subsided. In addition to getting rid of sweat and odor, miraDry® can also reduce hair growth under the arm.
After the miraDry® treatment at our BioSpa in Newport Beach, the underarm sweat and odor glands will be eliminated. While the body does need sweat glands to cool itself, there are anywhere from 2-4 million sweat glands in total with only about 2% in the underarms. Eliminating this small percentage of sweat glands does not affect the body’s ability to cool itself. Over 30,000 miraDry sweat and odor treatments have been safely performed.
