Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is MiraDry?
A: MiraDry is the only non-invasive, FDA approved aesthetic treatment that removes underarm sweat and odor glands safely. It uses energy to target and destroy sweat glands and hair follicles in the underarms.
Q: Don’t I need sweat glands?
A: You are born with roughly 2 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms contain only 2% of the total amount of sweat glands. MiraDry only targets the odorous sweat glands in the arms pits, you will continue to sweat elsewhere as normal.
Q: How is it performed?
A: A local anesthetic is administered to the under arms prior to the start of treatment to assist in comfort, with patients describing the initial injections as the only uncomfortable part of the procedure. Each treatment is customized to the patient’s underarms, with the MiraDry handpiece being placed in multiple areas to target sweat and odor glands.
Q: How long does the treatment take?
A: The entire process from start to finish takes about 1.5 hours.
Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: You can see results in as little as one treatment. Depending of the amount of sweating, some patients may require two treatments.
Q: Is there any downtime?
A: Most patients experience minimal downtime and can return to everyday activities (such as work) immediately. You may experience swelling, bruising, numbness, or sensitivity to the underarm area immediately and for several days post-treatment. For this reason it is recommended to wear clothing that will not rub or irritate the underarm area for several days after treatment and to avoid rigorous activities (running, working out) for several days. Additionally, patients may take over-the-counter pain relievers and ice the underarms as needed for comfort.
Q: Are there any side effects?
A: The MiraDry treatment has a strong safety record. Localized soreness, tenderness, or altered sensation may occur, but these side effects will clear within a few weeks if they occur.
Q: How should I prepare for my treatment?
A: Shave both underarms 4-6 days before treatment or trim underarm hair to a short length. It is recommended to wear something comfortable with loose arm holes to your treatment (camisole, tank top).
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Pricing can vary depending on your specific protocol. Call our office to set up a complimentary consultation to learn more.
