The miraDry® Procedure
Straightforward, in-office procedure provides lasting results!
The miraDry® treatment is customized for each underarm with multiple placement spots of the miraDry® handpiece. It is non-invasive; it involves no surgical incisions or cuts. 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.
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® Procedure:
- Lasting efficacy
- Strong safety profile
- High patient satisfaction
- Minimal to no patient downtime
How miraDry® Works
1 – Focused energy targets sweat glands
Focused energy is delivered to the dermal-fat interface region, where virtually all the sweat glands reside.
2 – Concentrated energy intensifies
The energy becomes concentrated along that interface and creates a Focal Energy Zone, where differences in electromagnetic properties in the interface create a reflection of the energy, and the energy is intensified from constructive interference.
3 – Special cooling system keeps heat in target area
Continuous hydro-ceramic cooling system keeps Heat Zone at the level of the sweat glands. Cellular thermolysis occurs at 55 to 60 degrees celsius (targeted cells die). Sweat glands do not regenerate, which results in a lasting solution. Cooling protects the epidermis and upper dermis, while deeper tissue than the Focal Energy Zone is not affected, thereby only targeting sweat glands and some hair follicles.
