How it Works

miraDry® is a safe, clinically proven, FDA-cleared solution for significantly reducing underarm sweat.

It’s an outpatient procedure performed in the physician’s office, and it doesn’t involve any surgical incisions or cuts. miraDry works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the underarm sweat glands.

If you answer YES to any of the following, the miraDry procedure may be right for you.

  • Are you bothered by your underarm sweat?
  • Would you rather not have to apply antiperspirant on a daily basis?
  • Would you like to wear white shirts and silk, but underarm sweat and antiperspirant stains your clothing?
  • Would you rather not have to think about unwanted underarm sweat in your daily routine?

The Results

The miraDry system eliminates the underarm sweat glands, and the sweat glands don’t grow back after treatment.

This results in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat. In a clinical study, patients experienced an average of 82% reduction in underarm sweat1. You should notice a reduction in sweat immediately after treatment. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person.

What To Expect

You can expect minimal to no downtime following the procedure.

You should be able to return to normal activities or work right away, and you can typically resume exercise within several days.

Localized soreness or swelling is normal, and usually clears within a few weeks. Some patients have temporary altered sensation in their underarm or upper arm skin, which gradually disappears. You should talk with your miraDry physician about any potential side effects.

 

Why do we sweat?

Our bodies produce sweat to help us cool down when we’re overheated.

How is sweat produced?

Underarm sweat is produced through two types of sweat glands located just below the surface of the skin. The eccrine secrete a clear, odorless fluid to help cool the body. The apocrine glands produce a thicker fluid that gives underarm sweat its distinctive odor.

Why do some people sweat more than others?

Some people have overactive sweat glands, meaning they frequently turn on when they should be at rest, and they produce much more sweat than what’s needed to cool the body. Some peoples’ glands can produce four or five times more sweat than normal.

Is it unusual to sweat a lot?

Not in the least. It’s a condition that affects millions of people. In fact, 1 in 5 Americans say they sweat excessively1. 1Data on file.

How do I know if I sweat too much?

If you answer YES to any of the following, the miraDry procedure may be right for you.
