How Long Does miraDry® Last?

Although everyone experiences underarm sweat and odor when exercising or physically exerting themselves, approximately 5% of the population experiences excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis, which is a condition resulting in the affected person sweating beyond what is physiologically necessary. Those affected with hyperhidrosis do not need external stimuli, exercise or temperature fluctuations to profusely sweat, and the effects on their day-to-day life can cause embarrassment and distress. 

Until recently, most of the available treatments provided temporary help at best, including ongoing Botox injections and special deodorants.  Just one treatment provides lasting results and is offered at Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz – miraDry –

What Is miraDry®?

Excessive underarm sweating is a problem that affects millions of Americans each year. In the past, those affected had to avoid activities that caused sweating and be careful with clothing selections to disguise underarm sweat.  miraDry® is an FDA-approved treatment designed to treat hyperhidrosis or excessive underarm sweating. It’s a revolutionary solution to an age-old problem and one that will also restore your lost confidence.

The human body contains millions of sweat glands, and approximately 2% of all those sweat glands are found under the arms. miraDry® works by using electromagnetic energy to destroy the underarm sweat glands, which your body does not need.

It’s a safe outpatient procedure, and we are among the most experienced miraDry providers in the Kansas City area to offer it.  

About Your miraDry® Treatment

The treatment begins with an in-depth consultation that includes an examination and assessment of your medical history to determine whether miraDry® is a suitable treatment for you.

The next stage of the miraDry® treatment involves numbing the underarm with local anesthesia (lidocaine). miraDry® is not an invasive treatment, but the microwave energy and suction may cause an uncomfortable sensation.

Once the local anesthesia takes effect, a temporary tattoo is applied to the underarm area, which acts as a guide for the handheld miraDry® device. Next, the handpiece applied to the underarm delivers thermal energy to eliminate the targeted sweat and odor glands. The miraDry® system simultaneously cools the skin for optimal comfort during the treatment. Finally, the procedure for that underarm gets complete and can get repeated on the other underarm.

Many clients can reap the full benefits of miraDry® from a single treatment session; however, some  hyperhidrosis patients may require a follow-up session for full effect.

How Long Will Your miraDry® Results Last?

The miraDry® treatment offered by Premier Vein & Body in Kansas City provides permanent, lasting results.  Unlike Botox injections, which are a popular treatment among those affected with hyperhidrosis, miraDry does not require ongoing maintenance.

If you’re looking for a completely permanent solution to excessive underarm sweating, miraDry® is for you.

Benefits of miraDry® 

You already know that miraDry® offers a permanent resolution to hyperhidrosis. But, what other benefits does it boast?

First, the procedure is cost-effective compared to other options like Botox®, which requires ongoing injections. Most patients need just one treatment session or two for those experiencing severe hyperhidrosis.

Second, miraDry® provides immediate results after the one hour treatment session. There is no waiting around for results to develop, as with many cosmetic treatments. 

Third, this outpatient treatment involves no downtime – just the ability to ice your underarms for a period of time post-treatment.  You can continue with the rest of your day after your treatment session.

Finally, along with the life-changing sweat reduction results provided by a miraDry treatment, patients can also expect to experience a decrease in underarm odor (about 82%) and hair!

Am I a Candidate for miraDry®?

Although miraDry was developed as an ideal treatment for patients suffering with hyperhidrosis, many of our patients do not suffer with clinical hyperhidrosis and simply desire to live their day-to-day life stress free without worrying about underarm sweat and odor!  

miraDry® might not be ideal for people with a heart pacemaker or any other electronic device implanted in their bodies.
