What is miraDry?
For people who suffer from excessive underarm sweating, miraDry is a good treatment option to consider, if prescription antiperspirants fail to work. miraDry is the only procedure that provides permanent results without surgery. miraDry is a safe, effective and lasting 2nd line treatment option, clinically proven, non-invasive procedure.
How does it work?
A safe, clinically proven, non-invasive procedure, miraDry uses electromagnetic energy which is delivered to the skin using a specially designed handpiece. The energy is carefully targeted to the area where the sweat glands are found and eliminates them. Sweat glands do not grow back, so the procedure gives a long lasting reduction in sweat.
miraDry is recommended by industry experts as a safe, effective and lasting treatment option.
What if it doesn’t work?
The reduction in sweating is immediate and dramatic; in clinical trials, patients experienced an average 82% reduction in sweat. In clinical trials over 90% of patients are satisfied with the reduction in both sweat and odour that can be achieved following miraDry treatment. For most patients the treatment is permanent; only one or two procedures are required to eliminate the sweat glands and as they don’t grow back, the sweating does not return, unlike temporary treatments such as Botulinum toxin injections.
miraDry treatment has minimal side effects. The procedure is quick and pain-free, with minimal downtime after treatment; side effects after treatment (minor bruising, discomfort and swelling) are generally short lived.
