Straightforward, in-office procedure provides lasting results
Treatment is customized for each underarm with multiple placements of the miraDry Handpiece. The miraDry procedure is non-invasive; it involves no surgical incisions or cuts. Prior to the procedure, temporary markings are placed on the skin to guide treatment, and local anesthesia is administered to the underarms to maintain patient comfort.
The total patient appointment time is generally 60 minutes, with treatment itself taking approximately 40 minutes. Custom software guides you or your staff through the process, making it easy to conduct the procedure.
Most patients notice sweat reduction immediately after the procedure. Two procedures are typically recommended three months apart to maximize the results and duration.
“Hyperhidrosis is a serious medical condition that significantly impacts the lives of millions of people. I did not fully appreciate the prevalence of the condition nor the high level of patient interest in a lasting solution until our practice started offering the procedure.”

Strong Safety Profile
Most patients are able to return to work on the same day of the procedure, and can typically resume exercise within several days. All patients will experience soreness under their arms for a few days after the procedure. Mild to moderate edema under the arms is typical post treatment and lasts about a week or two. Some patients have temporary, short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
