Ask a Question

  • 1.What is the miraDry® treatment?

    miraDry is the only noninvasive, FDA-cleared treatment that will free you from the bothersome problems of underarm sweat. By eliminating the sweat and odor glands, you can feel confident that your underarms will remain dry in any situation.

  • 2.Don’t I need sweat glands?

    Not in your armpits! You are born with approximately 2 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. After your miraDry® treatment you will experience the many benefits of dry underarms, and you will continue to perspire normally elsewhere.

  • 3.How old do I have to be to receive the miraDry® treatment?

    miraDry is approved for treatment of primary axillary [underarm] hyperhidrosis in adults 18 years of age and older. Maturity and ultimate growth and development of the individual are recommended before undergoing the miraDry procedure.

  • 4.What is the treatment like?

    When receiving the miraDry treatment, you will be in a reclined position for about one hour. You aren’t likely to feel anything during the treatment since your underarms will be numbed prior to treatment. After treatment, you may experience swelling, soreness, tingling and numbness in the treated area. These sensations typically clear-up within a few days to a few weeks.

  • 5.How does it work?

    The miraDry system uses proprietary miraWave energy that targets and destroys sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are destroyed they do not grow back so that means once they are gone, they are gone for good. To see images and videos of how the treatment works, visit http://miradry.com/works.

  • 6.What results can I expect?

    You can expect to have an immediate reduction in your sweat. Sweat glands don’t grow back so you should experience results that last. The amount of sweat reduction you desire should be discussed with your miraDry physician. As with any treatment, the results may vary from person to person.

  • 7.How many treatments will I need?

    You will see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best treatment plan for your desired results.

  • 8.Is the treatment painless?

    Since your underarms are numbed prior to treatment, most patients experience little to no pain. To learn more about the treatment process, visit http://miradry.com/works.

  • 9.Is there any downtime?

    Depending on what your typical day is like, downtime can be minimal to none after your miraDry treatment. Most patients return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise and vigorous activity is typically resumed within several days. You may experience discomfort in your armpits for several days post treatment.

  • 10.Is it safe?

    miraDry has been used in over 95,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record.

  • 11.Are there any side effects?

    After treatment, you may experience temporary swelling, soreness, tingling and numbness in the treated area. These sensations typically clear up within a few days to a few weeks. There have been no reports of permanent side effects; however, some patients experience short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears. Please consult with your physicians for all possible side effects and to see if miraDry is right for you.

  • 12.How much does it cost?

    Pricing for the procedure is set by each physician.  In the United States, the cost for one procedure is typically around $1,950. Ask your physician about pricing and discounts.

  • 13.Is this procedure covered by insurance?

    miraDry is not typically covered by insurance.

  • 14.Does the procedure affect lymph nodes?

    The lymph nodes in the underarm are typically located much deeper in the skin than the underarm sweat glands.  The miraDry System focuses treatment to the area where the sweat glands reside, and employs unique safety features to protect deeper tissue.  In clinical studies that thoroughly monitored patients’ health, there was no evidence that the procedure had any effect on lymph nodes.
