Stained clothing. A persistent odor. Excessive sweat. If that's the norm, freedom from those problems is simpler than you think. Nonsurgical, noninvasive miraDry helps our San Mateo and Palo Alto-area patients conquer excessive underarm sweating in just 2 treatment sessions, typically with permanent results.
Because miraDry is noninvasive, it's well-tolerated by a wide array of people. miraDry works equally well on male and female patients. In general, good candidates for miraDry are people who identify with one or more of these statements:
miraDry is a noninvasive, energy-based treatment that permanently reduces underarm sweat glands.
During your appointment, your practitioner first prepares your underarms by cleansing and marking the treatment areas. Your practitioner will then inject a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable. Using the marks on your underarm as a guide, your practitioner applies the handpiece and releases a burst of electromagnetic energy. During this time, you may feel a brief sensation of warmth or stinging. The total treatment takes less than two hours and has minimal downtime or side effects, and results are permanent.
Immediately after your appointment, your practitioner gives you a cold compress to hold under your arms. Patients can return to normal activities the following day. We recommend taking a few days off from strenuous activities, such as vigorous exercise.
You should notice a decrease in sweating shortly after your first treatment. Some patients require two treatments, spaced several months apart, for the best possible results.
Yes. miraDry permanently deactivates sweat glands, so a reduction in underarm sweat is long term. Most patients can stop using anti-perspirant products after one to two miraDry treatments.
Say hello to the body you once had with this clinically proven, FDA-cleared, totally non-surgical treatment.
