What is MiraDry and can it really help with my underarm sweat and odor?
Sweat and odor can be annoying, but it is the body’s natural mechanism that protects us from overheating. But, did you know that only 2% of your body’s sweat glands are located in the underarm area? Now, with MiraDry, we have a proven treatment that permanently reduces sweat and odor.
MiraDry is a comfortable and easy treatment that uses precise amounts of microwave energy to permanently destroy underarm sweat glands making them unable to produce sweat. It is a non-invasive treatment and takes just over an hour to perform. It’s has also been FDA approved, so you can count on it being safe and effective.
In simplest terms, the MiraDry procedure destroys the sweat glands in the underarm region via microwave energy. First, the underarm area is numbed using anesthetic injections, and then a small handheld device that transmits the microwave energy into the skin, destroys the underarm sweat glands.
The side effects of MiraDry treatment are minimal and manageable. Some clients can experience some soreness, swelling, numbness and tingling. But these side effects usually clear up within several days as most return quickly back to regular activities as well.
For the majority of our clients, 1 MiraDry treatment is typically all that is needed. Sometimes, in cases of extreme underarm sweat (hyperhidrosis), an additional treatment is needed (usually performed 2-3 months after 1st treatment).
Clients can experience up to 82% reduction of their sweat with MiraDry! When compared to only a 20% reduction you can receive with antiperspirants, it’s easy to see why this is quickly becoming one of the most sought after aesthetic treatments!
