Reduce Underarm Sweat & Odors with Miradry
What is Miradry, and how does it work?
Miradry is an FDA-approved treatment that permanently and significantly reduces underarm sweat and odors. It’s a unique device that delivers thermal energy, which safely heats and destroys the sweat and odor glands. If you sweat excessively, two treatments are recommended to achieve maximum benefits.
What can I expect during the procedure?
We will first numb the area with lidocaine so the treatment is painless. However, there is some soreness to be expected afterward. We recommend no heavy lifting or strenuous exercising for three to five days after the treatment.
Are the results immediate?
Yes, and permanent.
Don’t I need sweat glands?
Yes, you do, and your body will still be able to cool itself just as effectively after this treatment. Only 2% of your body’s sweat glands are in the underarm area — hard to believe, I know. The treatment will not cause an increase or a decrease in the other 98%.
Do I have to sweat excessively to qualify?
Definitely not. Some people no longer want to wear deodorant, and this is a great option for them as well. If you sweat mildly, you’ll likely need only one treatment instead of two.
What are the side effects?
Some localized soreness and swelling will occur in the days following each treatment. Short-term altered sensation in the underarms can also occur.
How long does it last?
Once the Miradry treatment eliminates the sweat and odor glands, they’re gone for good.
Does insurance cover it?
Not usually, but we recommend that patients with hyperhidrosis self-file to see if their plan will reimburse them. In addition, we do accept HSA card payments.
What is the cost?
Each treatment is $2700. Mention this article and receive the second treatment free.
