If you find yourself sweating through all your clothes despite trying every antiperspirant on the market, you may have a condition called hyperhidrosis. Previous methods for managing excessive sweating were temporary, ineffective, or both. Now you can treat hyperhidrosis with miraDry®, the most effective tool for controlling underarm sweat. 

What is miraDry®?

As the first non-invasive hyperhidrosis treatment approved by the FDA, miraDry® offers a new option for those who struggle with excessive underarm sweating and odor. For the first time, you can stop your excessive sweating with as little as one treatment. While treatments like Botox® only last a few months, miraDry® can provide results that last a lifetime. Highly effective and safe for almost anyone, miraDry® is a breakthrough in treating this frustrating condition. As a bonus, miraDry® also works on hair follicles, decreasing hair growth.

How Does miraDry® Treat Hyperhidrosis?

People with hyperhidrosis have overactive sweat glands in the underarm area. miraDry® works by targeting these glands. Treatment begins with numbing of the area, followed by the marking of a grid that guides treatment. Using thermal energy, miraDry® damages sweat glands, making them inactive. These sweat glands will not grow back, making miraDry® a long-lasting treatment option. The handheld device also emits cooling pulses to protect the skin during treatment, so you feel minimal discomfort. The treatment also damages many hair follicles, which will no longer grow hair after treatment. 

How Long Does Swelling Last After miraDry®?

You can leave your miraDry® treatment and return to your usual daily activities. You will usually notice some redness and bruising in the treated area that lasts a few days. You may feel some soreness, swelling, and numbness after your session. Swelling can take a few weeks to resolve completely. Avoid heavy exercise for a few days after treatment, and apply ice as instructed to minimize swelling and soreness.
