What is miraDry®?
miraDry® is a cutting-edge treatment that uses the gentle power of electromagnetic energy to reduce underarm sweat and hair growth. Over 30,000 of these treatments have been performed in the United States alone and have given patients beautiful, permanent relief from embarrassing sweat and odor. Best of all, miraDry® involves no downtime and brings patients instant improvements to underarm sweat, odor, and hair growth.
How Does it Work?
Before treatment begins, the underarm area is carefully numbed to ensure that patients are as comfortable as possible during the miraDry® procedure. Once this area is adequately numbed, electromagnetic energy is directed at the underarm area. This energy passes easily through the uppermost layers of the skin and is absorbed by the sweat glands as heat. This heat destroys the sweat glands, disabling them and preventing them from producing sweat and odor. This heat also affects the hair follicles in the skin, destroying or badly damaging them.
Each treatment takes about an hour to complete and brings patients little to no downtime. Excess underarm sweat and odor are eliminated for good after a single treatment session.
Am I a Candidate for this Treatment?
Nearly anyone interested in getting rid of underarm sweat, odor, and hair for good is a potential candidate for miraDry®. This procedure is particularly useful for individuals suffering from hyperhidrosis, or sweating that is so excessive that it dramatically affects the person’s quality of life.
miraDry® can be a life altering treatment for individuals that suffer from excessive sweating that interferes with their day-to-day life or that just want to get rid of pesky underarm hair for good.
