Underarm Sweating miraDry® Treatment

Excessive underarm sweating, or axillary hyperhidrosis, is a daily struggle for millions of people. It can make you feel uncomfortable and embarrassed during important moments. Those who struggle with excess underarm sweating try their best to look for ways to get rid of the problem.

For excessive underarm sweating, we offer miraDry®, a quick, a non-invasive procedure. The procedure heats your sweat glands with electromagnetic energy that ultimately removes them. Your body doesn’t regenerate new sweat glands, so once the sweat glands have been removed, the results are long lasting. The procedure does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself as the body has over 4 million sweat glands with only 2 percent located in the underarm area.

Unlike Botox treatments used to treat excessive underarm sweating, miraDry® is typically a long term excessive sweating treatment option whereas Botox will require additional treatments every 6 months.

What to Expect During a miraDry® Treatment

You will need to shave your underarms 2-3 days before treatment and local anesthesia will be applied before treatment begins because the treatment is uncomfortable. The treatment takes approximately 2 hours. Swelling is common for about a week after the treatment and icing is recommended for the first couple of days. The treatment consists of two procedures, three months apart to maximize the results.
