Excessive sweating (or Hyperhidrosis) is a common medical condition that can have many negative effects on daily quality of life. Patients will often apply and reapply antiperspirants 5-12 times a day, ruin multiple items of clothing, wear only black or white clothing, double layer clothing, and decline public event opportunities solely because of their underarm sweating.

There are a variety of treatments available including antiperspirants (DrySol), medications, BotoxTM injections Miradry, iontophoresis, surgery and medications (rubinol).

BotoxTM Injections injections is an excellent solution for palmar, plantar, and axillary hyperhidrosis. Botox works by blocking the chemical signals coming from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. This interruption is effective in decreasing excessive sweating but it is only temporary. Patients should expect to be re-injected every 6 months.

Treatment: Miradry

Now, there is a lasting solution that can make embarrassing sweat a thing of the past.

The miraDry procedure is quick, non-invasive and provides a lasting solution for excessive underarm sweat. The
handpiece from the miraDry System, when placed on the underarm, delivers precisely controlled energy to the
region where the sweat glands reside and eliminates sweat glands non-invasively. The sweat glands don’t grow
back once eliminated, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.

What is the procedure like?

The procedure involves no surgical incisions or cuts. The clinician customizes treatment for each underarm area with multiple placements of the miraDry handpiece. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the procedure to maintain comfort. Your office visit appointment will generally last about an hour.  Two procedures spaced three months apart are required to maximize the results and duration.

What happens after the procedure?

There is minimal to no downtime following the procedure. Your doctor will likely recommend a mild over-the-counter pain medication and use of ice packs for a few days. You should be able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure, and you can typically resume exercise within 10-14 days.

How long will the results last?

The results are lasting because the sweat glands do not come back or regenerate after they have been eliminated. The miraDry procedure uses a safe, non-invasive technology that is FDA cleared to eliminate sweat glands in the underarm.

What results can I expect?

Most patients report a dramatic reduction of their sweat – in a recent clinical study1, the average sweat reduction was 82%.  You should see a reduction in sweat immediately after treatment.  As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person.

How long will the results last?

The results are lasting because the sweat glands do not come back or regenerate after they have been eliminated. The miraDry procedure uses a safe, non-invasive technology that is FDA cleared to eliminate sweat glands in the underarm.

Don’t I need my underarm sweat glands?

Your body contains over 4 million sweat glands, with only about 2% located in the underarms. Eliminating this 2% will not affect the body’s ability to cool itself.

How is the miraDry procedure different from other treatment options?

Other treatment options are designed to temporarily disable the sweat glands, or involve surgery which contains inherent risks. Only the miraDry procedure provides a lasting solution with a non-invasive treatment. The procedure is not reimbursed by insurance.
