How Does miraDry® work?
miraDry® is a safe, clinically-proven procedure performed right in the doctor’s office and requires no surgical cuts or incisions.
The miraDry® system uses proprietary, electro-magnetic technology that harnesses the benefits of microwave energy, which is ideal for targeting hair follicles and sweat glands, while protecting the surrounding tissue and skin. This electro-magnetic energy has been used by physicians for years in the removal of cancerous lesions.
miraDry® works by delivering precisely controlled electro-magnetic energy to the underarm area, destroying the underarm sweat glands so that they are no longer able to produce sweat. As an added bonus, the electro-magnetic energy also treats a significant amount of the oil glands that produce underarm odor, as well as a significant amount of the hair follicles in the underarm area after just one or two treatments.
What Are the Benefits?
- Long-lasting reduction of underarm sweat*
- Reduction of underarm hair
- Associated reduction of underarm odor
- Toxin-free treatment
- Reduction of underarm stains in clothing*
- Cost effective compared to Botox treatments or dry cleaning stained shirts

The miraDry® procedure is simple and quick, usually lasting up to one hour. After treatment, patients may experience temporary swelling, mild soreness, tingling or numbness, which are easily treated by applying ice packs off and on throughout the twelve hours following treatment. Most patients return to work or normal activities right away, and you can typically resume exercise within several days. Most patients will experience significant and lasting reduction of sweat, hair and odor with one or two treatments.*
