How Does It Work?

The procedure for miraDry is incredibly simple in process; all it takes is moving the device over your underarms for around an hour. During this time, the device is using thermal energy to heat the sweat glands to the point they are “destroyed”. What this means is that those sweat glands no longer operate and thus sweating in the underarms in reduced. You will still be able to sweat some, as it does not eliminate all the sweat glands. But it does with enough of them to ensure you do not have to deal with excessive underarm sweating again

Who Is It for?

Anyone can benefit from a miraDry procedure, though it does target individuals who suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms. But no matter your walk of life, this procedure can provide long-lasting and relieving results that you can put your trust into. Overt sweating in any situation isn’t fun, but the underarms especially always seem to be a focal point. This procedure could be the factor you need in your life to get the relief you deserve, alongside a newfound confidence in yourself.

How Long Does It Take to Accomplish?

Results will be almost immediately apparent with the average rate of success being around 82% reduced sweating for your underarms. There is a 24-hour recovery period in which you should take it easy after the procedure. There are typically no major side effects with this treatment, though there may be some mild discomfort and swelling in the area. Again this typically only lasts for about a day, but you can return to your routine and more intensive physical activity once the swelling goes down. If results are not as prevalent, it may simply be that you need one more treatment to achieve better results.
