MiraDry® treatments are customized to the patient based on the severity of their hyperhidrosis.
Local anesthesia is administered to the underarm area to maintain comfort, and a temporary tattoo will mark the skin in preparation.
The miraDry® handpiece is positioned over the treatment zones, where controlled thermal energy is delivered to various areas of the underarm where the sweat glands reside.
This thermal energy heats and destroys the sweat glands without incisions or invasive treatment. Patients will feel a slight suction of the skin and glands as the thermal energy is delivered, but controlled cooling is delivered simultaneously to enhance comfort.
Many see dramatic results with one miraDry® treatment. While results are experienced immediately after the initial treatment, it is recommended to undergo two procedures spaced three months apart to maximize results. After a series of treatments, patients report a dramatic reduction in underarm sweat and a dramatic increase in sweat-free comfort and confidence.
