Are Laser Treatments For Underarm Sweat Safe?

It can be frustrating and embarrassing to live life with excessive sweating. The good news is you don’t have to. miraDry is an FDA-cleared treatment to significantly reduce underarm sweat and odor in as little as one appointment (those suffering with clinical hyperhidrosis often require two).   The miraDry System uses thermal energy that targets and eliminates the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are eliminated, they do not grow back. Goodbye, sweat stains!  Read on for more information about this revolutionary treatment.

How miraDry Works

miraDry® is a safe, clinically-proven procedure performed right in the doctor’s office and requires no surgical cuts or incisions. miraDry® works by delivering precisely controlled electro-magnetic energy to the underarm area, destroying the underarm sweat glands so that they are no longer able to produce sweat while protecting the surrounding tissue and skin. As an added bonus, the electro-magnetic energy also treats a significant amount of the oil glands that produce underarm odor, as well as a significant amount of the hair follicles in the underarm area after just one or two treatments.

Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for patient comfort. Once you are numb, the miraDry laser device will be used to apply precisely controlled energy to your underarm area where your sweat glands are situated.  Most patients return to regular activity (such as work) immediately, and exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days after treatment.

Benefits of miraDry

miraDry delivers life-changing, lasting results! Once the miraDry treatment eliminates the sweat and odor glands, they’re gone for good. The treatment is clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction and 89% odor reduction. As with any aesthetic treatment, patient results and experiences may vary.

And you won’t have to wait weeks or months to reap the benefits of miraDry because it’ll leave you with instant results. Right after your treatment, you’ll notice a substantial decrease in underarm sweat. You’ll no longer feel embarrassed about sweating and can engage in personal and professional activities in complete confidence.  miraDry’s lasting results mean you can Sweat Less and Live More!
