miraDRY Q&A

Q: What is miraDry®?
The miraDry system provides a non-invasive treatment that offers a lasting solution for underarm sweat. The handpiece from the miraDry System, when placed on the underarm, delivers precisely controlled energy to the region where the sweat glands reside and eliminates sweat glands non-invasively. Eliminated sweat glands don’t grow back, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.

Q: What is the procedure like?
The miraDry procedure involves no surgical incisions or cuts. The treating physician will customize treatment for each underarm area with multiple placements of the miraDry handpiece. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the miraDry  procedure to maintain patient comfort. The office visit typically lasts about 90 minutes.

Q: How many treatments will I need?
Two procedures spaced three months apart are required to maximize the extent and duration of the results.

Q: What happens after the procedure?
There is minimal to no downtime following the miraDry procedure. Your treating physician will likely recommend a mild over-the-counter pain medication and use of ice packs for a few days. You should be able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure, and you can typically resume exercise within a few days. Some localized soreness or swelling is normal, and typically clears within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.

Q: What results can I expect?
Most patients report a dramatic reduction of their sweat – in a recent clinical study, the average sweat reduction was 86%. Most patients see a reduction in sweat immediately after treatment. As with any medical procedure, results will vary for each patient.

Q: How long will the results last?
The results are long-lasting because the sweat glands do not regenerate after they have been eliminated. The miraDry procedure uses a safe, non-invasive technology that has been cleared by the FDA to eliminate sweat glands in the underarm.

Q: Don’t I need my underarm sweat glands?
Your body contains over 4 million sweat glands, with only about 2% located in the underarms. Eliminating this 2% will not affect the body’s ability to cool itself.

Q: How is the miraDry procedure different from other treatment options?
Other treatment options (like Botox injections) are designed to only temporarily disable the sweat glands, or involve surgery with its inherent risks. Only the miraDry procedure provides a lasting solution with a non-invasive treatment.

Q: Is the miraDry procedure right for me?
If embarrassing underarm sweat outbreaks, stained clothing or frequent antiperspirant application interfere with your daily life, then you may be a good candidate for the miraDry procedure. Schedule a consultation to see if the miraDry procedure is right for you.
