Stop Stressing Over Underarm Sweat

We’re all obsessed with sweat … how much we produce and whether anyone can see it. While it’s an acceptable accessory at the gym, it never pairs well with a cocktail dress or sleeveless top at a business meeting.  In an Instagram world, appearing sweat-free is expected and in the real world, no one wants to be bothered with underarm stink.  Something we can all agree on is “the less sweat, the better.”

Botox for Underarm Sweat

Over the years, the “secret” to reducing underarm sweat was a regular quarterly schedule of Botox injections under the arms.  This approach is effective, but just temporary and the dollar investment adds up throughout the year. Plus, who wants to be stuck with needles in the underarm over and over?  You can read more about the advantages of miraDry over Botox to address underarm sweat here.

Permanent Solution for Underarm Sweat

Thanks to an FDA-cleared treatment called miraDry, your pit problems can now be a thing of the past without the cost, pain, and time commitment of ongoing injections! This non-invasive treatment permanently eliminates sweat glands under the arms via “microwave energy” that heats up the liquid inside of the sweat glands until they are destroyed by the thermal energy.  The good news is that we don’t even need those sweat glands! Our body contains approximately 2-4 million sweat glands, and our underarms contain just 2% of them! After a miraDry treatment, you will experience the many benefits of dry underarms while your body continues to perspire normally everywhere else.

How miraDry Works to Eliminate Underarm Sweat

miraDry is a very simple outpatient treatment that can be completed in about an hour. 

Step 1:  Numb the Underarm Area

Local anesthesia is administered to assure maximum comfort during the treatment.

Step 2: Mark It

A temporary tattoo is used to mark the skin in preparation for the treatment.

Step 3: Treat It

The underarm area on both sides is treated with miraDry. eliminating sweat and odor, and even hair follicles!

What Results Can You Expect From miraDry?

There is a reason that miraDry is one of our patients’ favorite treatments – this simple treatment provides patients with life-changing results that are both permanent and lasting!  One miraDry eliminates the underarm sweat glands, they are gone for good, providing:

  • 82% reduction in underarm sweat
  • 89% reduction in underarm odor
  • 70+% reduction in underarm hair

As with any aesthetic treatment, individual results vary by patient.  Most patients require just one treatment, but others, especially those suffering from clinical hyperhidrosis, will require a second.  Dr. Schwartz will discuss your specific situation at the time of your consultation. 

Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime.  Many patients return to work, but it’s helpful if you can intermittently ice the treated underarms the rest of the day/night, as some localized swelling or soreness will occur, but will clear within a few weeks.  Exercise can typically be resumed within several days, and this is when patients first notice the “magic” of their new underarms!

Ideal Candidates for miraDry

In short, miraDry is for everyone bothered by underarm sweat! Although the miraDry treatment was initially developed for patients suffering from a clinical hyperhidrosis diagnosis, most of our patients simply want to eliminate their underarm sweat while reducing odor.  Many simply want to remove the stress of underarm sweat from their lives – no longer having to worry about stinking after a workout, pit stains in a dress or dress shirt, or leaving white deodorant marks on their clothes.  Yes, many miraDry patients report to us that they no longer wear deodorant!  It is not an ideal treatment for anyone with a pacemaker or other electrical device implanted in their bodies.
