MiraDry delivers carefully controlled microwave energy to your underarm sweat glands through a handheld device.
Through a heating process known as thermolysis, miraDry destroys the sweat glands while the surface of the skin remains cool. MiraDry is considered a permanent treatment for excessive underarm sweating because it results in permanent destruction of the sweat glands. .
Since the axillae make up about 2% of the body’s surface area, their elimination does not affect the body’s ability to regulate body temperature.
The process is quick and non-invasive. Downtime is limited with an early return to work following miraDry. You will be advised to avoid strenuous exercise for a few days after. To remain comfortable, ice packs to the armpits and over-the-counter pain medication in the first few days after treatment is recommended.
