What is MiraDry?

MiraDry is designed to reduce or eliminate sweat from your underarms. This is particularly handy for people who have hyperhidrosis, or abnormally high amounts of sweat. The FDA cleared MiraDry as a treatment in 2015.  

Is MiraDry risky?

MiraDry is completely safe. Your body has anywhere from 2 to 4 million sweat glands, yet only 2 percent of them are in your underarms. Getting rid of the sweat glands in your underarms doesn’t affect your body’s natural cooling mechanism on hot days or during strenuous exercise.

How does MiraDry work?

A technician marks your underarm with temporary tattoos to prepare for your treatment. We also numb the area for comfort. Then, we use a handheld device that delivers precise amounts of microwaves to the underarm area. The intense heat created by the microwaves destroys sweat glands permanently. The entire procedure takes about an hour in a single appointment. It’s completely safe, and you can return to normal daily activities immediately.

What are the side effects of MiraDry?

Patients who undergo MiraDry typically have soreness or minor swelling in the treated area, which can last a few days. You may also experience numbness or tingling in the upper arm or underarm for up to four or five weeks. Try not to schedule your treatment close to a time when you have an important meeting or going on a trip because the discomfort could be distracting. We recommend you take it easy for a few days after your MiraDry treatment.
