The miraDry procedure is a lasting and non-invasive solution for excessive underarm sweat
The outpatient procedure is performed in the physician’s 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.
The procedure uses precisely controlled energy to eliminate underarm sweat glands. The sweat glands don't grow back after treatment, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.
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.
