The miraDry procedure is safe and clinically proven to provide a significant reduction of underarm sweat. The miraDry procedure uses the only non-invasive technology that is FDA cleared to provide lasting results. The procedure uses precisely controlled energy to eliminate underarm sweat glands. Because the sweat glands don’t grow back once eliminated, the results are dramatic and lasting.
The outpatient procedure is performed here in our office and does not involve surgical incisions or cuts. The clinician customizes treatment for each underarm with multiple placements of the miraDry System. The miraDry System delivers electromagnetic energy non-invasively to the area where the sweat glands reside. The underarms are numbed prior to the procedure for patient comfort.
Two procedures are typically recommended 3 months apart to maximize the results and duration. Each procedure appointment generally lasts about an hour. You can expect minimal to no downtime following the procedure. You should be able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure, and you can typically resume exercise within several days. Localized soreness or swelling is normal, and typically clears within a few weeks. Some patients have temporary, short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
