NO SWEAT MIAMI – THE SWEAT STOPS HERE
miraDry® is for ANYONE tired of dealing with underarm sweat, deodorant, and odor.
How miraDry® works
It’s actually pretty simple. The miraDry ® system uses energy that targets and destroys the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are destroyed, they do not grow back—so once they are gone, they are gone for good.
Miami’s Premier miraDry® Practice for Underarm Sweat and Odor Treatment
Did you ever think you could confidently go “organic” with your deodorant? With miraDry®, you can finally ditch the harmful chemicals found in deodorants – there is no need to wear any at all! miraDry® leads to about an 82% reduction in underarm sweat and a 30% reduction of hair in that area.
miraDry® is for anyone who:
- Is tired of dealing with sweat stains and deodorant
- Feels sticky at the end of the day
- Suffers from hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Has an issue with “stress sweat”
- Desires a toxin-free lifestyle
- Is embarrassed by odor
miraDry® Works by Eliminating Overactive Sweat Glands
miraDry® safely eliminates sweat and odor glands, assuring that your underarms stay dry throughout the day. The treatment uses a proprietary energy to destroy your glands in the targeted area. You will continue to perspire normally elsewhere.
Your miraDry® Treatment Session
The treatment takes approximately one hour and is pain-free. A member of our medical team will apply a local anesthetic and then carefully outline the exact area being treated. The procedure begins with a slight suction that is applied to the area in order to bring the glands to the surface, ensuring maximum results. Then, energy is delivered to the targeted area through advanced technology as it is able to selectively eliminate the sweat glands while emitting a cooling energy. This prevents any discomfort or burning sensation throughout the procedure. Although you may experience soreness, tingling, swelling and numbness in the area after treatment, these symptoms should dissipate a few days later.
While considerable sweat reduction is often seen immediately, the number of sessions required depends on the person receiving the treatment. In most cases, one session is sufficient but in extreme cases can require an additional treatment. During your consultation, you can discuss your treatment goals, and our providers will develop a treatment plan that best fits your goals and needs. This treatment generally has a high success rate.
FAQs About miraDry®
What is the miraDry® treatment?
miraDry is a revolutionary FDA-cleared, non-surgical treatment that permanently reduces underarm sweat, odor, and hair – in just one hour. Over 100,000 miraDry® treatments have been performed worldwide.
Don’t I need sweat glands?
While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 2-4 million sweat glands – only about 2% are found in your underarms. Eliminating 2% of your sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. With miraDry®, you will experience the many benefits of reducing sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat in other areas of your body.
How does it work?
miraDry® uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat, odor, and hair glands reside and safely eliminates them.
What results can I expect?
You can expect immediate and lasting results. Once the miraDry® treatment eliminates the sweat, odor, and hair glands, they’re gone for good. Clinical studies show an average of 82% sweat reduction. As with any aesthetic treatment results, patient results and experience may vary.
How many treatments will I need?
You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your desired results.
How long does it take?
An office visit appointment will generally last about one hour.
Is there any pain or downtime?
Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for patient comfort. Most patients return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days post-treatment.
Are there any side effects?
Some localized soreness or swelling will occur, and typically clears within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
How much does it cost?
Pricing can vary depending on the treatment protocol to achieve your desired results and will be discussed during your consultation.
