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.
