MiraDry to treat underarm sweat
miraDry delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic energy beneath the underarm skin to the specific area where sweat glands are located, resulting in thermolysis of the sweat glands. While the sweat glands are being eliminated through electromagnetic technology, the top layers of the skin are simultaneously cooled and protected. miraDry permanently treats axillary hyperhidrosis or excessive underarm sweating. Additionally, it permanently eliminates underarm hair of all colors as well as odor glands making it the first FDA-cleared device available to halt unwanted underarm sweat and hair growth while also eliminating odor-producing glands.
The patient must shave 4-6 days prior to their appointment, and no deodorant the day prior.
The procedure involves no surgical incisions or cuts. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the procedure to maintain comfort. Your office visit appointment will generally last about an hour. Two procedures spaced three months apart are required to maximize the results and duration.
There is minimal to no downtime following the procedure. You will be advised to take a mild over-the-counter pain medication and to use ice packs over the next few days. You should be able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure, and you can typically resume exercise within several 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.
Will require 1 – 2 treatments to destroy enough sweat glands to achieve ideal results.
