What is miraDry?
miraDry is the only FDA-cleared treatment that dramatically reduces underarm sweat in as little
as one appointment.
Don’t I need to sweat?
Your body does need sweat glands to cool itself. However, your body has 2-4 million sweat
glands – only about 2% are found in your underarms. Eliminating these sweat glands will
not change your body’s ability to cool itself. With miraDry, you will experience the many benefits of reducing sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat from other areas of your body.
How does miraDry work?
miraDry works by using thermal energy to create heat in the area of bothersome sweat and odor glands. These sweat glands are safely eliminated. Click here to learn more.

How many miraDry treatments will I need?
You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, results may vary and your physician will determine the best protocol for your desired results.
Is there any pain or recovery time after miraDry?
The majority of patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for patient comfort. Most patients return to regular activity (such as returning to work) immediately. In most cases, you may resume exercise within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days after treatment.
Are there any side effects to miraDry?
Some localized soreness or swelling will occur. This will typically clear within a few weeks.
Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms,
which gradually disappears.
