miraDry

What is miraDry?

MiraDry is a procedure that is fast, non-invasive and a permanent solution for excessive underarm perspiration. 

The procedure is carried out in one of our treatment rooms. When placed on the armpit, the handpiece from the miraDry system delivers measured amounts of energy to the area where the sweat glands are located and eliminates these sweat glands in a non-invasive way. The sweat glands do not grow back once they have been removed, resulting in a substantial and permanent reduction in armpit perspiration.

What does the procedure involve?

The procedure is non-invasive and therefore does not include any surgical incisions or cuts. The nurse treats each armpit area in a way tailored to suit the patient and moves the miraDry handpiece a number of times. A local anaesthetic is applied to the armpits prior to the procedure. Your visit to the clinic usually lasts approximately one hour. Two procedures three months apart are necessary in order to obtain the best result. 

What happens after the procedure?

Only a minimum or even no recovery period is required following the procedure. Your doctor will probably prescribe a painkiller for a few days and recommend the use of icepacks. You should be able to resume your normal activities or go back to work immediately after the procedure and, normally speaking, you can start doing sport again within a few days.

Some local discomfort or inflammation is normal and disappears after a few weeks. Some patients experience a brief, altered feeling in the skin on the armpits or upper arms but this gradually disappears. 

What results can I expect?

Most patients report a dramatic reduction in perspiration. In a recent clinical study the average reduction in perspiration was 82% and you should notice a reduction in perspiration immediately after the treatment. As with every medical procedure, results can vary from person to person.

How long can I expect the results to last?

The results are permanent because the sweat glands do not grow back or regrow once they have been eliminated. The miraDry procedure uses a safe, non-invasive technology that is approved by the FDA for the elimination of sweat glands in the armpit.

Don’t I need the sweat glands in my armpit?

Your body has more than 4 million sweat glands, of which approximately only 2% are located in the armpits. Eliminating this 2% does not affect the body’s ability to cool itself down.

How is the miraDry different from other possible treatments?

Other possible treatments are aimed at eliminating the sweat glands temporarily or require surgery with the accompanying risks. Only the miraDry procedure offers a permanent solution with non-invasive treatment.

Is the miraDry procedure suitable for me?

If excessive and permanent perspiration under your armpits, stained clothing or the regular application of antiperspirant hinder your everyday life, you could be a good candidate for the miraDry procedure. Talk to your doctor about it to find out whether the miraDry procedure is suitable for you.
