miraDry is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment that targets and destroys sweat glands in the underarms to curb excessive sweating and end armpit stains in your clothes.
miraDry – How Does It Work?
Electromagnetic (microwave) energy in the handheld device (“wand”) heats up the water in the sweat and odor glands, causing damage to those glands. Destroyed sweat glands do not regenerate so the results are lasting (average 82% reduction in underarm sweat from one treatment)! The procedure is relatively painless, but it does require local anesthesia in the form of lidocaine injections. Most people can continue normal activities, return to work right after the procedure and resume exercise within a day or two, although many do take the rest of the day off from work, as patients must be able to apply cold compresses or ice packs off and on throughout the first 24 hours.
