MiraDry – a lasting solution for unwanted underarm sweat

miradry-nj-sweat-stops-here-1024x474No one likes to sweat from their armpits – the sweat marks, the odor, the staining of clothes – and now you no longer have to.

MiraDry allows people across New Jersey to get rid of annoying underarm sweating (and odor) once and for all, usually in a single treatment session. You’ll be left feeling fresh, clean and ready for anything!

MiraDry is an FDA-cleared device that uses controlled electromagnetic energy to safely eliminate underarm sweat glands.  A typical course of treatment consists of one 60-minute session for people with average perspiration, and two treatments for those with more severe underarm sweating, including those who suffer from hyperhidrosis.

The results are lasting, with an average sweat reduction of 82 percent, and a patient satisfaction rating of over 90 percent in both clinical studies and online patient reviews.

As with any medical procedure, results vary from patient to patient, but MiraDry offers real hope for people in New Jersey who are suffering every day from excessive underarm sweating.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the MiraDry procedure?

The miraDry procedure is quick, non-invasive treatment that provides a lasting solution for underarm sweat. The MiraDry handpiece delivers precisely controlled energy to the underarms where the sweat glands reside and eliminates them non-invasively. The sweat glands don’t grow back once eliminated, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.

What is the procedure like?

First local anesthesia is administered to make the procedure comfortable, and then the clinician makes multiple applications of the MiraDry handpiece.  Each treatment session lasts about an hour.  If a patient requires two sessions, treatments are spaced about three months apart to provide the maximum benefit.

What happens after the procedure?

There is little to no downtime following the MiraDry procedure. A mild over-the-counter pain medication and the use of ice packs may be needed for a few days after the treatment. You should be able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure, and you can typically resume exercise within several days. Some localized soreness or swelling is normal, 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.

What results can I expect?

Most patients report a dramatic reduction of their sweat immediately after treatment – in a recent clinical study, the average sweat reduction was 82%. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person.

How long will the results last?

The results are lasting because the sweat glands do not come back or regenerate after they have been eliminated. The MiraDry procedure uses a safe, non-invasive technology that is FDA cleared to eliminate sweat glands in the underarm.

Don’t I need my underarm sweat glands?

Your body contains over 4 million sweat glands, with only about 2% located in the underarms. Eliminating this 2% will not affect the body’s ability to cool itself.

How is the MiraDry procedure different from other treatment options?

Other treatment options are designed to temporarily disable the sweat glands, or involve surgery which contains inherent risks. Only the MiraDry procedure provides a lasting solution from a non-invasive treatment.

Is the MiraDry procedure right for me?

If embarrassing underarm sweat outbreaks, stained clothing or frequent antiperspirant application interfere with your daily life, then you may be a good candidate for the MiraDry procedure.

What does the MiraDry procedure cost?

Each treatment costs $1,500 (this covers both underarms), a price many men and women find to be worthwhile for the effective control of their overactive sweat glands.
