How Long Does MiraDry Last?

Is underarm sweating affecting your life and making you feel insecure?  If it is, and solutions like prescription strength anti-perspirants don’t work, you may be interested in learning about miraDry.  miraDry is a non-invasive treatment for underarm sweating that requires little downtime.  But how long does miraDry last.

Understanding underarm sweating

Sweating is a completely normal function that the body uses to regulate temperature.  However, people with axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating) sweat even on the coldest of days, because their sweat glands are working overtime.   Hyperhidrosis is primarily caused by overactive sweat glands. 

What is miraDry?

miraDry is a noninvasive treatment for underarm sweating that uses microwave technology to eliminate sweat and odor glands in the armpits. miraDry has been clinically proven to reduce sweat in the underarms by an average of 82%.

How miraDry works

miraDry is a simple treatment that takes less than one hour to complete.  The handheld device delivers electromagnetic energy to specific sweat glands in the armpits.  The resulting heat kills the sweat glands, while cooling the upper layers of the skin.

How long does miraDry last?

The results of miraDry are long-lasting, because it treats the root cause of underarm sweating, by shutting down the overactive sweat glands.  The treated sweat glands will not grow back, so sweat production will decrease significantly, as there are fewer sweat glands in the underarms.  

How many treatments do you need?

Patients may need 1-2 treatments for optimal results.

When will you see results with miraDry?

Most patients notice a reduction in underarm sweating immediately after the procedure.
