What is MiraDry?
MiraDry is a safe, clinically proven, long-lasting, FDA-approved, non-surgical solution that stops excessive or bothersome underarm sweating. MiraDry also reduces underarm odor.
Millions suffer from excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis). Frustrating, embarrassing, and generally a nuisance, hyperhidrosis can be a daily struggle, seriously impacting your quality of life.
Bothersome underarm sweat can cause anxiety and embarrassment at work, in social settings and in relationships. It is frustrating to have clothes ruined by sweat stains. Excessive or bothersome sweating may devastate your emotional well-being and self-image, negatively affecting how you feel about yourself and even how others perceive you. In a large consumer survey, people said that excessive underarm sweat was more embarrassing to them than being overweight or having acne, cold sores or dandruff. If you are bothered by your underarm sweat, you’re not alone. Bothersome underarm sweating is more common than you think. In fact, 1 in 5 U.S. adults are bothered by their underarm sweat.
Taking care of bothersome underarm perspiration with FDA-approved MiraDry relieves the symptoms in a safe and effective manner. The MiraDry procedure for bothersome sweating is a non-invasive treatment, meaning that there is minimal to no downtime following your service.
How is MiraDry Performed?
During the procedure, the MiraDry handpiece is applied directly on the underarm by one of our trained providers. The system targets the sweat glands and uses specialized microwave energy pulses to eliminate them. Once the sweat glands are eliminated, they do not return. This reduces the amount of sweat that is produced in the underarm region. Although non-invasive (non-surgical), local anesthesia is used to minimize any discomfort during the treatment. Most patients spend about one hour in our office and resume normal activities immediately after treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for MiraDry?

How many treatments does it take to see Results?
MiraDry eliminates the underarm sweat glands, and the sweat glands don’t grow back after treatment. This results in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat. In a clinical study, patients experienced an average of 82% reduction in underarm sweat. You should notice a reduction in sweat immediately after your first treatment. One to two treatments spaced two to three months apart is recommended for best results. As with any medical procedure, results vary by person.

You should be able to return to normal activities or work right away, and you can typically resume exercise within several days. Icepacks are generally recommended for a few days afterward to reduce any potential swelling or discomfort.
Why do we sweat?
Our bodies produce sweat to help us cool down when we’re overheated.
How is sweat produced?
Underarm sweat is produced through two types of sweat glands located just below the surface of the skin. The eccrine secrete a clear, odorless fluid to help cool the body. The apocrine glands produce a thicker fluid that gives underarm sweat its distinctive odor.
Why do some people sweat more than others?
Some people have overactive sweat glands, meaning their glands frequently turn on when they should be at rest, and they produce much more sweat than what’s needed to cool the body. Some peoples’ glands can produce four or five times more sweat than normal.
Is it unusual to sweat a lot?
Not in the least. It’s a common problem that affects millions of people. In fact, 1 in 5 Americans say they sweat excessively.
