How miraDry® Works
The miraDry® treatment system used at Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz works by harnessing electromagnetic technology. The microwave energy only targets hair follicles and sweat glands, leaving the surrounding skin intact.
Our laser aesthetician uses miraDry® to deliver precise and targeted electromagnetic energy on the underarm area, which causes permanent damage to the sweat glands and the oil glands that produce odors.
After your underarm area is numbed through a series of injections, the treatment begins with your provider applying a temporary tattoo to mark the skin, which will guide the miraDry® device to target specific areas. A handheld device that’s part of the miraDry® system is used to target and destroy sweat and odor glands on the underarm. You will feel a slight suction. The glands in your underarm move closer to the surface of your skin for maximum results.
Many clients can enjoy the benefits of miraDry® after a single treatment session, although some people may need a follow-up session if they experience a severe case of hyperhidrosis.
Benefits Of miraDry®
Although miraDry® is the perfect non-invasive treatment for people suffering with excessive underarm sweat, it’s truly ideal for anyone bothered by underarm sweat. The system uses electromagnetic technology and doesn’t require any incisions.
Another advantage of miraDry® is each treatment session only takes less than one hour to complete. It’s, therefore, possible to have the treatment during a work lunch break.
miraDry® doesn’t have any downtime. After a treatment session, it’s possible to resume normal daily activities. Dr. Schwarz recommends avoiding exercise for a few days post-treatment to have optimal results.
miraDry® is also the only FDA-approved underarm sweating treatment of its kind. That means it’s safe for people to have. Lastly, it’s a cost-effective and permanent solution compared to BOTOX® treatments, which require ongoing injections.
Am I A Candidate For miraDry®?
You might be a candidate for miraDry® if you experience excessive underarm sweating or hyperhidrosis. It’s a permanent solution as it destroys the sweat and odor glands that cause so many problems for those affected by hyperhidrosis.
