MiraDry® To Treat Underarm Sweat & Odor!

POSTED ON FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 2017 AT 11:50 AM  by Dr. Jody Levine

Say goodbye to underarm sweat and deodorant this summer! MiraDry® is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that targets excess sweat glands under the arms to eliminate sweating and odor. MiraDry® is designed to end unsightly sweat stains on clothing, as well as the need to apply antiperspirant. Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC is proud to offer this long-lasting sweat reduction treatment to help patients achieve results with virtually no recovery time.

The Science Behind MiraDry®

MiraDry® delivers specialized miraWave™ energy to sweat glands, effectively heating and eliminating them. During treatment, the MiraDry® hand-piece positions your sweat glands closer to the surface of your skin through suction. The hand-piece then sends heat energy to the underarm glands, while cooling technology is applied to the skin to reduce any discomfort.

What Types Of Sweat Glands Does MiraDry® Target?

MiraDry® treats eccrine glands (which cause sweating) and apocrine glands (which cause odor), addressing 2 common concerns in 1 procedure.

Who Are Ideal Candidates For MiraDry® Treatment?

Patients who suffer from axillary hyperhidrosis, (excessive sweating of the underarms) may be ideal candidates for MiraDry® treatment. Additionally, patients who would like to reduce the amount of underarm sweat they experience, as well as patients who are looking to reduce the amount of antiperspirant they must apply, may be candidates for MiraDry®.

What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?

MiraDry® is designed to achieve long-lasting results. Patients no longer need to wear antiperspirant after completing their MiraDry® procedure and can expect less underarm sweating post-treatment. Since MiraDry® is completely non-surgical, there is virtually no healing time required. You can typically resume your daily routine the same day as your MiraDry® procedure. As a side benefit, MiraDry® will decrease underarm hair too!
