MiraDry® Offers Lasting Results
MiraDry is the only non-invasive technology that is FDA cleared to provide lasting results for both underarm sweat and odor. The procedure uses precisely controlled energy, customized for each underarm, to eliminate sweat glands. Because the sweat glands don’t grow back once eliminated, the results are dramatic and lasting. It is non-invasive, a natural toxin-free solution, and does not involve surgical incisions or cuts. The total patient appointment time is generally 60 minutes, with treatment itself taking approximately 40 minutes. Custom software guides our staff through the process, making it easy to conduct the procedure.
Most patients notice sweat reduction immediately after the procedure. In a recent study, patients had a measured 82% reduction of sweat after only one treatment.
Benefits of MiraDry®:

- Toxin free

- Minimal to no patient downtime
What Happens During a MiraDry® Procedure
1 – Treatment is customized and designed
Prior to the procedure, temporary markings are placed on the skin to guide treatment, and local anesthesia is administered to the underarms to maintain patient comfort. After your underarm has been numbed and is ready to be treated, the clinician will place a handpiece directly on your skin, lining up with the temporary treatment template that has been customized and applied to the specifics of your underarm.
2 – Focused energy targets underarm sweat and odor glands
Next, the hand piece is activated. You will feel a slight suction as your skin and glands are brought closer to the surface for maximum results. The energy becomes concentrated along that interface and creates a focal energy zone. This MiraWave energy is delivered to the dermal-fat interface region, where virtually all the sweat and odor glands reside.
3 – The energy intensifies while a special cooling system soothes
As miraWave energy is delivered to the sweat and odor gland region, cellular thermolysis occurs and the targeted cells begin to die. Since the MiraDry® system uses energy that only targets and destroys this specific region of your underarm, deeper tissues are not affected. This process all occurs while a continuous hydro-ceramic cooling system is applied for a soothing, cooling and protecting effect on your skin. However, once the sweat and odor glands are destroyed, they do not regenerate. So once they are gone, they are gone for good and results are long lasting.
