miraDry® (Sweat Reduction)

miraDry® is making excessive sweating treatment as easy as one, two, three. Using thermal energy, this procedure targets and eliminates sweat and odor glands located under your arm, easily reducing your underarm moisture.

NO SWEAT WITH MIRADRY

Hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating, is a condition that is much more common than you might think. Millions of people are plagued with this inconvenient and often embarrassing condition.

Now miraDry® offers a long-lasting solution.

What is miraDry?

miraDry® is the only non-invasive, FDA cleared treatment, tested and proven to dramatically reduce sweat and provide long-lasting results. It is a quick, non-invasive treatment that delivers heat and energy directly to the sweat and odor glands in the underarm area. This energy eliminates the targeted sweat and odor glands, leaving you dry and odor-free with results starting immediately after your treatment, and the results are often permanent.

Don’t I need sweat glands?

While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 2-4 million sweat glands - only about 2% are found in your underarms. Eliminating this 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. With miraDry, you will experience the many benefits of reducing sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat in other areas of your body.

How does it work?

miraDry uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat and odor glands, as well as hair follicles reside and safely eliminates them.

What results can I expect?

You can expect immediate and lasting results.1 Once the miraDry treatment eliminates the sweat and odor glands, they’re gone for good. The treatment is clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction and 89% odor reduction.1,3 As with any aesthetic treatment, patient results and experiences may vary.

How many treatments will I need?

You can see results in as little as one treatment.1 However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your desired results.

How long does it take?

An appointment will generally last about one hour.

Is there any pain or downtime?

Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for patient comfort. Most patients return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days after treatment.

Is it safe?

Yes, miraDry has been used in over 150,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record.2 It’s also been cleared by the FDA to dramatically reduce underarm sweat in as little as one appointment.

Are there any side effects?

Some localized soreness or swelling will occur, and typically clear within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.

How much does it cost?

Pricing can vary depending on the treatment protocol to achieve your desired results and will be discussed during your consultation.

Is miraDry covered by insurance?

miraDry typically is not covered by insurance, but it is the first and only treatment FDA-cleared to permanently reduce underarm sweat in as little as one appointment.1 However, you may be able to use your HSA/FSA funds toward miraDry. Please contact your HSA/FSA manager to find out.

Testimonials

“It’s hard to believe that a problem I have had my whole life could disappear so quickly and completely. After years of learning to tolerate and cope with sweaty underarms, I finally found a treatment that was tolerable, affordable and actually worked!”

“I started noticing this excessive sweating under my arms around the age of 15. This was an annoying, embarrassing, and isolating problem (to say the least). From the discomfort of sweat running down my sides, to the embarrassment of obvious sweat stains, to the fear of being “discovered,”– uncontrollable underarm sweating often felt like it was ruining my life. I tried almost every over-the -counter and prescription antiperspirant on the market with no success in managing this condition. By the time I was in my early 20’s, I gave up hope that I would ever find a true cure to this problem. That is, until I went to South Shore Skin Center and learned about the miraDry® treatment.”

“My overall experience with the miraDry® treatment was wonderful. The treatment itself was essentially painless. After the first couple injections my armpits went completely numb which made it very comfortable throughout the non-invasive procedure. The downtime after the treatment was minimal. I did experience some significant swelling and bruising, but was told to expect that. I had no pain following the treatment either!”

** Second treatment may be needed in some cases **
