miraDry® is a non-invasive, long-lasting solution for people with excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis), who are unable to get relief using antiperspirants and other topical remedies.
miraDry® is an FDA cleared treatment that uses electromagnetic energy to eliminate sweat and odor glands. miraDry is a game changer for those who suffer from chronic sweating, because it permanently eliminates underarm seat.
We use a local anesthetic to numb the area so there is minimal discomfort during the procedure. Treatment time is about 2 hours, and there is generally an immediate decrease in sweat. miraDry® is considered a very safe and effective treatment for hyperhidrosis.
How does it work?
The miraDry® system delivers controlled electromagnetic energy below the surface of the skin, to heat up and destroy sweat and odor glands. The device also has a built-in cooling mechanism that protects the surface of the skin, while the glands are being heated.
How many treatments do you need?
It typically takes one miraDry® treatment to eliminate underarm sweating. However, severe cases may require two treatments, which are normally spaced about 3 months apart. You can expect to see about an 85% reduction in underarm sweat after the first treatment.
What should you expect?
There is generally some puffiness and tenderness after treatments, but this normally resolves within a few days. Most patients are able to return to regular activities the same day.

While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 2-4 million sweat glands and only about 2% are found in your underarms. Eliminating 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. After miraDry®, you will experience the many benefits of reducing sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat normally in other areas of your body.
miraDry® uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat and odor glands reside and safely eliminates them.
You can expect immediate and lasting results. Once the miraDry® treatment eliminates the sweat and odor glands, they’re gone for good. The treatment is clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction and 89% odor reduction. As with any aesthetic treatment, patient results and experiences may vary.
You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your desired results.
An appointment will generally last about 2 hours.
Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for patient comfort. Most patients return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days after treatment.
Yes, miraDry® has been used in over 140,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record. It’s also been cleared by the FDA to dramatically reduce underarm sweat in as little as one appointment.
Some localized soreness or swelling will occur, and typically clear within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
