Yes! miraDry has been fully cleared by the FDA and has been used in over 140,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record.
Most patients describe the treatment as painless. As the numbing medication wears off, you are likely to experience some soreness and/or swelling in your underarm area. This will improve within 48 hours and resolve within a few weeks. We recommend icing the area for the first 48 hours. You should not need to miss any work after the miraDry procedure.
Most patients require only 1 treatment though a second treatment can be performed if additional results are desired. Should a second treatment be desired the fee will be at a 50% reduced rate.
miraDry results are immediate and once your sweat and odor glands are eliminated, they are gone permanently. miraDry is clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction and 89% odor reduction. For reference, deodorant offers approximately a 20% reduction.
Yes, you do! But, only about 2% of your sweat glands are in your underarm area. Even with the destruction of these glands, you still have more than enough. And, no need to worry, you will not sweat more in other areas after miraDry.
miraDry uses thermal energy to create heat to safely eliminate sweat and odor glands.
Not typically. While you are always welcome to come to the office for an in person consultation, most of the time a full consultation can be accomplished over the phone. We are happy to save you time and gas money if that is easier for you.
