What is MiraDry
MiraDry is a non-invasive, FDA approved procedure that removes underarm sweat and odor glands. It is a quick procedure done in-office that has immediate and lasting results. MiraDry’s proprietary technology uses electromagnetic energy that targets the sweat glands in the underarm area. Sweat glands do not regenerate so results are lasting.
Results are immediate and permanent after MiraDry. The average result is 80% reduction in sweat and odor. Most patients need just one treatment while others might need two treatments for expected results. Contact the Institute for Anti-Aging for a free consultation and get all your questions answered.
Aren’t Sweat Glands Needed?
It is healthy to sweat. It keeps your body cool. People are born with 2-4 million sweat glands all over their body. The armpits contain about 2% of those glands. After the MiraDry procedure patients will continue to sweat normally over the rest of their body. If you are bothered by underarm sweat or have been diagnosed with axillary hyperhidrosis, then MiraDry is a lasting solution for you.
Is There Downtime or Pain with MiraDry?
A local anesthesia is administered in the underarm before the procedure. Most patients at the Institute of Anti-Aging report little or no pain during the process. After the procedure, soreness and/or swelling in the underarm is typical. This generally clears up within a couple weeks. Patients can take an non-prescription anti-inflammatory medication for swelling and apply an ice pack. The area maybe tender for up to two weeks. Normal activity can resume right after the procedure and exercise can resume within several days.
The MiraDry procedure lasts for about 1 hour. Multiple placements of the MiraDry hand piece creates a customized procedure to ensure maximum results. At your free consultation, the Institute of Anti-Aging will explain how to prepare for the procedure and what to expect the days following the treatment.
