What Are the Benefits of miraDry?

Dealing with underarm sweat and odor is a part of being human. Unfortunately, the typical tools we have to keep things fresh and dry fall a little short. Antiperspirant products cost money and often contain chemicals we’re not thrilled to put on our skin. They leave marks on our favorite clothes and cake up into ugly little beads—and all too often, they just don’t work all day!

With miraDry, these hygienic woes can be out of your life. Unlike daily antiperspirants or even BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, which offer temporary sweat reduction, miraDry destroys sweat glands under the arms, so they no longer produce sweat, ever. It’s easy to see the benefits:

  • Dry, comfortable armpits all day and night long.
  • No worries about underarm odor.
  • No more deodorant marks (or perma-funk) ruining your favorite clothing.
  • You’ll feel a lot more confident at close-quarter meetings and parties.

miraDry can also help reduce unwanted hair under your arms! The energy in miraDry also affects hair follicles. In fact, a single treatment reduces underarm hair by up to 70% within a year—a pretty nice side effect!

What Are miraDry Treatments Like?

During your treatment, one of our experienced medical spa providers marks the treatment area with a special grid, numbs the area, and then applies a handheld device, which delivers the odor and sweat-destroying energy.

How Long Does it Take for miraDry to Work?

miraDry instantly destroys odor and sweat glands under the arms. The effects are nearly immediate, with many people noticing a dramatic reduction in sweat within hours. After 2 months or so, you’ll have a new sweat and odor baseline.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Most people are satisfied with their results after just a single miraDry treatment. However, some people may need (or want) a second treatment to achieve their desired results.

How Does miraDry Compare to BOTOX for Stopping Underarm Sweat?

Both BOTOX and miraDry are FDA-approved to reduce underarm sweating and are safe and effective when administered by a qualified provider. However, there are a few key differences:

  • BOTOX’s effects are temporary, lasting up to 6 months, while miraDry results will last for many years. 
  • BOTOX injections have not been shown to reduce odor, while miraDry has.
  • Finally, only miraDry can help reduce underarm hair at the same time it eliminates sweat and odor.

Is it Safe to Eliminate Sweat Glands Under My Arms?

Yes. While the ability to sweat is important for good health, there is no need to sweat specifically from your armpits. In fact, only about 2% of your body’s sweat glands are located under your arms, so stopping sweat here still allows for healthy sweat output and body temperature regulation.

Is miraDry Safe?

miraDry has been cleared by the FDA, thousands of treatments have been performed to date, and it has an excellent safety profile. As with any medical treatment, it is essential to choose an experienced, qualified provider to perform miraDry so you receive safe, effective treatment. In addition, miraDry is safe for all skin colors and skin types!
