Who is an ideal candidate for miraDry®?
It's no secret that we live in the desert, and it's hot! To cool off, the human body sweats and some people sweat more than others. Not all sweating is bad, but sweat and sweat stains in the underarms is socially unacceptable. So, the answer is that it's really for anyone who feels they sweat too much in this sensitive area. In your life or profession if you don't want your co-workers, clients, friends or family to see you sweat in your underarm – well, you might be the ideal candidate for miraDry®.
miraDry® is right for you, if you are:
In the search for the Perfect Pit, think miraDry®! Of course, the only thing more offensive than a sweaty armpit that everyone can see - is a smelly armpit! Luckily, miraDry® can absolutely help there too! The technology in miraDry® treats both the eccrine and apocrine glands in the underarm. Eccrine glands sweat and apocrine glands are responsible for the unpleasant odor. Patients can use this technology to eradicate the odor producing glands and feel and smell more confident. Not to mention that after the treatment, you can also throw out your all antiperspirants and deodorants. So, the next time you want to get close to you sweetheart after a long day at work or play, you won’t have to worry about anything stopping you from getting your groove on.
What about other areas in the body?
While miraDry® is our #1 procedure for sweat reduction, we understand our patient's needs go beyond the underarms. That's why we treat other parts of the body as well. Currently, we offer BOTOX® injections for the heavy sweating in the hands and feet, the head and neck, and the groin area. None of these areas can be treated with miraDry®, but we have the experience using BOTOX®, which is very reliable in the treatment of excessive sweat. BOTOX® lasts about 6 to 9 months and requires maintenance treatments to maintain the results.
First of all miraDry® is a non-invasive FDA-cleared treatment that reduces underarm sweat by permanently eliminating sweat and odor glands. Our patients feel very confident after a miraDry® treatment that they will have less sweat in their armpits to remain dry.
You are born with 2 million sweat glands so you do not need to keep the sweat glands in the armpits. The underarms only have about 2% of the sweat glands. By eliminating your underarm sweat glands you will be dry in your armpits and continue to perspire normally elsewhere.
Adults 18 years of age and older that have underarm hyperhidrosis are approved to get treated with miraDry®.
The miraDry® treatment takes about an hour. Your underarms will be numbed prior to treatment so you shouldn’t feel anything during the procedure. You may experience some swelling, soreness, tingling and numbness in the treated area after the procedure. Be ready for the possibility that it can take a few weeks to clear-up these sensations.
The miraDy® System uses miraWave energy that targets and destroys sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once these glands are permanently destroyed they will not grow back and therefore you will have less sweat and odor. Learn more about how miraDry® works by visiting http://miradry.com/works.
You will have immediate reduction in your underarm sweat glands. These sweat glands that are eliminated will not grow back so the results are permanent. Feel free to discuss how much sweat reduction you want in the underarms with our experienced miraDry® certified professionals.
You will immediately get up to an 85% reduction in sweat and odor in the underarms. If you desire more sweat and odor reduction you can schedule additional treatment. Please discuss your goals with our miraDry® certified professionals so they can help create your treatment plan.
Your underarms will be numbed prior to the procedure so most of our patients experience little to no discomfort.
Typically the downtime is very minimal for our miraDry® patients. Most of our patients return to minimal activity or returning to work immediately after their treatment has been completed. We highly recommend that all vigorous exercise and activities wait for several days after the treatment before resuming. Patients sometimes feel some discomfort in the armpit area for a few days after their treatment.
Over 95,000 miraDry® treatments have been performed worldwide with an excellent safety record. It's also the only FDA-cleared treatment to reduce underarm sweat which is important.
Swelling, soreness, tingling and numbness are possible side effects of a miraDry® treatment. It sometimes takes our patients a few weeks to clear these sensations. We have not seen any reports of any long term permanent side effects. Any short term sensation in the underarms or upper arms gradually disappears over time. Please consult your miraDry® certified professional to see if it’s right for you.
Insurance companies feel that miraDry® is a cosmetic procedure so it's typically not covered.
Since lymph nodes are located much deeper in the body than where the underarm sweat glands reside the miraDry® System employs unique safety features to protect deeper tissues. There were no evidence that this procedure had any effect on the lymph nodes in the clinical studies.
