miraDry is the only FDA-cleared treatment that can permanently eliminate underarm sweat and odor. The treatment is fairly simple yet incredibly effective: the miraDry system uses thermal energy that targets and eliminates the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. These glands do not grow back. Goodbye, sweat stains!
PERMANENTLY REDUCE UNDERARM SWEAT
MIRADRY TREATMENT PROCESS
After your underarm is numbed, Dr. DeFatta will place the handpiece directly on your skin, lining it up with the temporary tattoo that has been applied to your underarm.
Next, the handpiece is activated. You will feel slight suction as your skin and glands are brought closer to the surface for maximum results.
Finally, thermal energy is delivered and the sweat and odor glands are eliminated. All the while, the system is cooling to protect your skin and maximize your comfort.
This is one of the most effective and reliable cosmetic procedures available. So, if you’re fed up with the embarrassing wetness and odor, miraDry is the way to go.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does MiraDry work?
MiraDry destroys sweat glands by delivering microwave energy deep into the skin through a hand-held wand. Since sweat glands can’t grow back, once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. And although sweating serves an important purpose, only 2 percent of our approximately 4 million sweat glands exist in our underarms. So, you’ll have plenty leftover to help eliminate toxins and cool yourself during a workout or on hot summer days.
What results can I expect from MiraDry?
You can expect immediate and lasting results. Once the MiraDry treatment eliminates the sweat, odor, and hair glands, they’re gone for good. The procedure is clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction. As with any aesthetic treatment results, patient results and experience may vary.
How many MiraDry treatments do I need?
Most patients see results in as little as one treatment session. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, our team will help determine the best protocol for your desired results.
Is there any pain or downtime after a MiraDry treatment?
Most patients describe the procedure as painless. We administer local anesthesia to the underarms before the treatment for patient comfort.
Most patients experience little to no downtime and return to regular activity immediately. Patients resume exercise within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days post-treatment.
Are there side effects to MiraDry?
Some localized soreness or swelling will occur and typically clears up within a few weeks. Some patients have a short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms. These sensations gradually disappear.
