What happens during the miraDry procedure?

miraDry is an outpatient procedure performed right in your dermatologist’s office with no incisions necessary. To enhance patient comfort, the underarms are numbed beforehand and the treatment is customized based on your sweat level and armpit anatomy. The miraDry system sends electromagnetic energy through the underarms to eliminate sweat glands.

What is considered too much sweating?

It is normal for everyone to sweat especially when over-exerting themselves through rigorous exercise, or in the summer months. Sweat is our body’s natural way of cooling itself off. However, some people have a tendency to sweat too much where a thicker and darker colored fluid is produced and it can create rings that stain the clothing. This condition can be embarrassing for people in social situations.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure takes about an hour.

Does miraDry need to be repeated?

For best results, patients should undergo two miraDry treatments, spaced roughly three months apart. Your dermatologist will provide you with recommendations based on your specific concerns.

Are there any restrictions after miraDry?

After miraDry, you can immediately return to work and other regular activities. It is recommended that you refrain from exercise for the first few days after treatment.

What are the possible side effects of miraDry?

Soreness or swelling may occur after miraDry, but this usually clears in a few weeks. Some patients have temporary, short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
