miraDry logo

miraDry is the first and only FDA-cleared procedure to permanently reduce excessive sweat. It delivers controlled electromagnetic energy pulses to the underarm area to effectively stop the underarm sweat glands from producing, providing long-lasting results and dryness.

Whether you sweat excessively or your sweating is less substantial, miraDry helps you embrace life to the fullest without the embarrassment or worry about underarm sweat and/or odor getting in the way.

Who is a Suitable Candidate for miraDry?

Men or women who are looking for a solution to excessive underarm sweating are likely candidates for miraDry. Ideal candidates meet the following requirements:

  • You are in good health
  • Are not pregnant
  • Do not have a pacemaker or other electronic implant
  • Have auxiliary hyperhidrosis
  • Are not taking certain medications, such as Accutane (isotretinoin), and have not  taken the drug in the past six months
  • Are bothered or embarrassed by underarm sweat outbreaks
  • Find they need to frequently reapply antiperspirant

What is the miraDry Treatment Like?

During your miraDry treatment, your underarms will be numbed with a topical cream. You will lie back on a comfortable bed for about an hour while the treatment is performed. The miraDry device is applied, and it delivers controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area to kill the sweat glands there. Because your body has many other sweat glands, this is not dangerous.

Because there are no incisions required, there is no downtime after miraDry treatment. Patients can return to their usual activities immediately.

Do I need my underarm sweat glands?

Your body contains more than four million sweat glands. Only two percent are located in the underarms. The body can cool itself effectively with the remaining sweat glands in the body.

How many miraDry treatments will I need?

Typically, two treatments given two months apart achieve the best results.

Are there any side effects?

The miraDry procedure is very low risk. Side effects may include minor soreness or swelling at the treatment site, which will resolve in a few weeks. Patients will also lose underarm hair. Short-term alteration of the sensation in the skin of the underarms or upper arms is a less frequent side effect. Those who experience it find it gradually disappears.

Excessive Sweating: Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a medical term for excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis affects various body areas, such as underarms, palms, soles of feet, face, chest, or groin. Excessive sweating does not pose a risk to physical health, but those who live with heavy underarm sweat experience ongoing emotional stress due to embarrassment, anxiety, and constant worry. 

Symptoms of Hyperhidrosis

  • The symptoms that may indicate you have hyperhidrosis include:
  • You avoid specific actions or activities, such as exercising or participating in social events, as you are worried about excess sweat.
  • You have feelings of isolation due to your condition.
  • You worry about body odor. 
  • You bring extra clothing to work if your shirt or top becomes soaked with sweat.
  • You have tried to resolve excessive sweating by applying the most potent, clinical-grade antiperspirants without success. 
  • You feel withdrawn from taking part in social events due to worries about excessive sweating.
  • You take frequent showers and change your clothes due to excessive sweating.

What Causes Hyperhidrosis?

The cause of hyperhidrosis is unknown but may be associated with the nerves that control sweat production. When inherited through your family line, primary hyperhidrosis typically starts to appear during childhood, worsening during puberty, and affects women more often than men. “Secondary hyperhidrosis” is more common and can be triggered by several environmental and physical factors, including:

  • Pregnancy
  • Menopause
  • Anxiety
  • Nervousness
  • A side effect of medication
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Thyroid issues
  • Infections
  • Some health conditions
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
