The miraDry® Procedure
miraDry is the only noninvasive technology cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat excessive underarm sweat, and it is clinically proven to control sweat without the use of harsh chemicals, toxins or surgery.
The miraDry procedure is a quick, noninvasive treatment that uses a handpiece to deliver precisely controlled energy to eliminate the underarm sweat glands. Because the sweat glands do not regenerate, the results are long-lasting.
Most patients experience significant underarm sweat reduction after just one treatment. A miraDry procedure takes about one hour and is performed in the office. Patients are generally able to resume normal activities immediately following the miraDry procedure. Exercise and strenuous activity may resume within a few days after treatment. Some patients may benefit from a second treatment about three months later for maximal benefit.
The Benefits of miraDry®
miraDry is capable of providing an immediate and dramatic reduction in underarm sweat. A recent clinical study demonstrated an average perspiration decline of 82 percent.
Other treatment options are designed to temporarily disable the sweat glands or involve inherent risks of surgery to remove the sweat glands. The miraDry procedure has become the treatment of choice for a lasting solution to underarm sweat with minimal discomfort and without incisions. The cost of a miraDry procedure is just $1,500.
