Frequently asked questions

Do I need to sweat?

Of course! But not underarm. Humans are born with between 2 and 4 million sweat glands in the body. Only 2% is under the arm. After the MiraDry treatment, it is possible to experience the many benefits of a dry underarm, while continuing to sweat normally in the rest of the body.

How it works?

MiraDry uses thermal energy to create heat where the sweat glands and odor reside to safely eliminate them.

What results should I expect?

You can expect immediate and lasting results. Once the sweat glands and odor are eliminated, they are gone for good. The treatment is clinically proven to have an average sweat reduction of 82% and 89% odor. Like any anesthetic treatment, patients can obtain varied results and experiences.

How many treatments will I need?

You can see results in as little as a treatment. However like any treatment with anesthetic, the doctor will determine the best protocol to achieve the desired results.

Is there pain or downtime?

Most patients describe the procedure as pain free with very little to no downtime. Local anesthesia is administered below the arm before treatment for patient comfort. Generally, patients return to their regular activities immediately. (Like work) The exercise can however be repeated in the next few days. You may experience numbness, swelling, bruising, and be more sensitive in the treated area for several days after treatment.

Is it safe?

Yes, MiraDry has been used in more than 140,000 treatments worldwide with excellent safety report. The treatment has also been approved by the FDA to significantly reduce sweat in as little as an appointment.

Are there any side effects?

Some numbness and swelling that usually will disappear in the weeks following treatment are to be expected. Some patients have short loss of sensation in the skin of the underarm or upper arm that will gradually disappear.
