MiraDry is a new non-invasive, FDA-cleared in-office procedure that targets and destroys the odor and sweat glands in the underarm area.
The Sweat Stops Here
Sweaty underarms are considered to be a fact of life. But what if there was a way to get rid of underarm sweat and smell forever?
Try to imagine what it would be like if you never had to use antiperspirant again? No more white stains on your clothing. No more sweat stains soaking through your shirts.
Sounds pretty amazing, right? A life free of underarm sweat and smell is now a reality thanks to the brand new in-office underarm treatment called miraDry.
MiraDry is a one and done treatment, meaning that once the glands are destroyed, they do not grow back. MiraDry has already been performed over 55,000 times and is proven to be safe.
How does miraDry for underarms work?
A special miraWave energy deeply heats and destroys the sweat and odor glands. The hand-piece utilizes a cooling device along with the treatment to ensure that patients remain comfortable throughout the treatment.
Patients, at Sylvain Simard Clinic, will be numbed prior to the treatment so they will not be able to feel anything. The entire process takes about one hour.
Don’t We need sweat glands in armpits?
Actually, no. We’re all born with about 2 million sweat glands all over our body. The underarm area contains only about 2% of those glands.
Following a miraDry treatment, the normal perspiration will continue everywhere else around your body.
How much of a reduction in underarm sweat should we expect?
Patients will achieve an 82% reduction in sweat in 1–2 treatments.
To better help understand what that 82% reduction feels like, the FDA regulates OTC antiperspirants to only give a minimum of 20% reduction in sweat, and clinical strength gives a 30% reduction.
Treatment with miraDry for underarm sweat is 82% and permanent.
