miraDry – Frequently Asked Questions

Laser Skin Solutions offers miraDry® as a solution for excessive sweating.  The treatment is known to be effective in correcting axillary hyperhidrosis through advanced technology, permanently eliminating sweat and odor glands causing the condition.  Microwave energy is harnessed to destroy unneeded glands.  The skin of the treatment area is protected by a cooling mechanism, merging comfort and efficiency.

Naturally, there are many questions surrounding miraDry®, like what can be expected or what level of results can be achieved.  We will answer some of those questions today, so you can decide if the treatment could be right for you.  If you have additional questions, we welcome you to contact our office.

What Happens During the Treatment?

When you come in for the treatment, the affected area will be numbed.  The length of your treatment may vary depending on your personal needs. Following treatment, you will be able to immediately return to your regular activities. The only restriction is that exercise or strenuous physical activity should be avoided for a set amount of time after your appointment.

How Soon After the Treatment Will I See Results?

Most patients see a significant change in their sweat production immediately.  Since the sweat glands destroyed do not regrow, you will have permanent relief from your symptoms.

Are There Permanent Side effects?

Any post-treatment symptoms you experience following your therapy will dissipate within just days. The only permanent side effect of miraDry® is a reduction in the excessive sweating you once had!

Do I Need My Sweat Glands?

The body uses sweat glands to regulate body temperature by cooling you with the sweat produced.  The sweat glands in your armpits are not essential to that function.  Only two percent of all the sweat glands on your body are found underneath your arms.

Is miraDry® Safe For All Skin Types?

The treatment is effective on men and women of all skin types and tones! Many people suffer from excessive sweating for years before they find out there is medical help to help stop the problem permanently.
