What is miraDry®?
miraDry® is a non-invasive procedure where precisely controlled energy is emitted to the underarm region essentially eliminating sweat glands.
How does miraDry® work?
The procedure is done in our office and involves applying the miraDry® handpiece to multiple areas. The handpiece delivers controlled electromagnetic energy to the region where the underarm sweat glands are located. This heats the sweat glands which are eliminated for good.
What are the benefits of miraDry®?
There are several benefits to the miraDry® treatment including:
- Dramatic sweat reduction
- Immediate and lasting results
- Minimal to no downtime
- Quick in-office procedure
How long does this procedure take?
Each miraDry® procedure takes about an hour. Two treatments performed three to four months apart usually ensure completion of the procedure.
Is miraDry® painful?
Most people report mild to moderate discomfort, but to alleviate any discomfort you will receive local anesthesia to the underarm area.
What is the recovery like with miraDry®?
Immediately following the miraDry® procedure, we recommend an over-the-counter pain reliever and ice. There may also be some localized pain and swelling, but that goes away within a few weeks following the procedure. You can return to work immediately with exercise following within a few days.
When will I see results from miraDry®?
You should see a reduction in sweat immediately. Clinical studies show that the average sweat reduction is 86 percent. Most patients will see results after just two miraDry treatment sessions at Sanctuary Medical Center. As with any procedure, results always vary from patient to patient.
Is miraDry® a safe procedure?
Yes – miraDry® is a very safe, non-invasive procedure. Even though it eliminates sweat glands, it does not affect the body’s ability to cool itself. The human body has more than four million sweat glands and only two percent are located in the underarms.
What is the cost of miraDry® in Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, FL?
The cost for miraDry®depends on the extent of the procedure–each patient is different and has varying degrees of excessive sweating. Most patients receive two treatments three to four months apart. We are happy to discuss your financial options for miraDry® and other cosmetic treatments during your initial consultation.
How do I know if miraDry® is right for me?
miraDry® is recommended for patients who suffer from excessive sweating, which causes unsightly underarm stains and repeated applications of deodorant. If you suffer from such issues, we recommend you speak with one of our providers to discuss whether miraDry® is right for you.
