What are the Benefits of the MiraDry?

Do you frequently experience armpit sweat stains on your clothing, or find that you seem to sweat more than other people? If so, you may have hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes excessive sweating that is not always related to exercise or heat. If your sweating disrupts your daily routine, causes emotional distress, or seems to occur for no apparent reason, MiraDry can help! Read on to learn more about this noninvasive treatment at our office.

How can MiraDry Help?

The MiraDry treatment can dramatically reduce underarm sweat and odor for a more comfortable and confident you. It harnesses the power of thermal energy to target and eliminates sweat and odor glands. Once these glands have been eliminated, they will not grow back. This means you won’t have to worry about embarrassing or uncomfortable armpit sweat stains ever again!

MiraDry offers many benefits, and is:

  • Non-invasive
  • Toxin-free
  • Quick
  • Permanent

How is the MiraDry Treatment Performed?

The MiraDry treatment is quick and pain-free. To begin, local anesthesia will be administered to ensure you are comfortable. Then, a temporary tattoo is used to mark the skin in the area to be treated. Next, the MiraDry handpiece is pressed against the skin, emitting thermal energy to destroy sweat glands. Treatment takes about one hour to complete.

There is no downtime required after MiraDry, which means that you can return to your normal activities, including work, right away. We do advise that you wait several days to exercise, however, for the best results.

Don’t I Need to Sweat?

Many patients have questions regarding the elimination of sweat glands. A common question we receive is “But don’t I need to sweat?” The answer is yes, you do. However, you are born with millions of sweat glands, and your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. You will continue to sweat from other areas of your body following a MiraDry treatment.

Who Is a MiraDry Candidate?

Men and women who are bothered by excessive underarm sweating and are seeking a natural treatment option can benefit from MiraDry. Some patients can enjoy results after just one treatment, while others may require a series. The best way to determine if this treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Erwin today.
