MiraDry Q & A

What is miraDry?

miraDry is designed to help the countless people who deal with excessive underarm sweating and odor. If you’re regularly concerned about or embarrassed by your sweat levels, don’t hesitate to talk to Dr. Karlsberg to learn what miraDry can do for you.

He performs this groundbreaking, noninvasive treatment in the comfort of his office. Your entire appointment should take an hour or less and delivers lasting, dramatic results. 

How does miraDry work?

First, Dr. Karlsberg prepares your underarm with local anesthesia and prepares the treatment to fit precisely to your underarm. Then, he places the miraDry handpiece on your underarm. 

You’ll feel some suction as it attaches and starts directing thermal energy into your sweat and odor glands. As this precisely controlled energy is applied to your sweat and odor glands for a set amount of time, it destroys them. 

At the same time, the miraDry device operates a continuous hydro-ceramic cooling system to keep the surface of your skin comfortable and safe.

Once the sweat and odor glands are destroyed, they don’t come back. This makes miraDry a highly effective way to dramatically reduce the amount of underarm sweat and odor your body produces. 

You can continue with your usual daily activities immediately after treatment, even heading straight back to work. 

Are miraDry treatments safe?

Absolutely. miraDry is approved by the FDA and doesn’t require the use of any toxins. It’s also completely noninvasive, reducing underarm sweat without the need for a single incision. 

And you don’t need to worry about miraDry eliminating sweat production throughout your body. You do need to sweat to keep your body cool, but the underarm area contains only a small percentage of your sweat glands. 

You can eliminate those sweat glands where they’re most likely to cause shirt-staining and odor, while still preserving your body’s overall ability to cool itself. 

Dr. Karlsberg is one of the only providers in the area offering miraDry, so don’t hesitate to contact him if you’re interested in reducing your underarm sweat.
