What Is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by excessive sweating that exceeds the body’s typical needs for temperature regulation. This can occur in specific areas or across the entire body, leading to discomfort and often, social anxiety. Despite being a common issue, it can severely impact the quality of life, making everyday activities more challenging due to the unpredictability of sweat episodes.

Hyperhidrosis Causes

Hyperhidrosis causes vary, but it often stems from an overactive sympathetic nervous system. Genetics may play a role, as many individuals with this condition have a family history of excessive sweating. Other factors include certain medical conditions or medications that can exacerbate the body’s normal sweat-production mechanisms.

Finding the Right Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Until miraDry, most sweat treatments were temporary fixes. Many patients have tried hyperhidrosis treatment with Botox and found periodic reduction in sweat and odor. The problem with Botox? It doesn’t last. After the effects of the medication wear off (usually between 4-6 months), you’ll be back where you started, and feeling obligated to continue costly and time-consuming treatment sessions.

The other option for hyperhidrosis patients is surgery, which removes sweat glands from the skin. This is invasive, expensive, and accompanied by significant downtime. While excessive sweating is oppressive, many patients are unable to take the surgical steps necessary to fix the problem for good.

With miraDry, sweat glands are permanently destroyed – without making you uncomfortable or bringing you into the office again and again.

What Is miraDry?

miraDry is a treatment designed to significantly reduce excessive sweating by targeting the sweat glands under the skin using a special device. This FDA-cleared technology provides a permanent way to manage the symptoms of hyperhidrosis.

How Does miraDry Work?

The miraDry system utilizes thermal energy to carefully eliminate sweat glands in targeted areas. This process is non-invasive and selectively destroys the glands responsible for excessive sweating with minimal impact on surrounding tissues.

Why We Love miraDry

  • Permanent Results: After the miraDry treatment sessions (usually 2 appointments), there will be up to an 82% reduction of your sweat glands. They will not regenerate, and you’ll continue to see lowered sweat levels.
  • Only One or Two Treatment Sessions: miraDry is complete in only two treatment sessions, and you won’t need to return to the office afterward. This hyperhidrosis treatment minimizes disruption to your daily life while effectively managing symptoms.
  • Fast Treatments: Each treatment for hyperhidrosis lasts about an hour, allowing you to return to most of your routine activities shortly after.
  • Can Also Reduce Underarm Hair: In addition to mitigating sweat, miraDry has a beneficial side effect of reducing underarm hair. This enhances the aesthetic benefits for many while addressing the discomfort associated with hyperhidrosis.
  • Non-Invasive Treatment: The miraDry treatment is completed with a handheld laser, which gently heats the sweat glands in your underarms. There are no incisions or surgical procedures, but you get many of the same benefits as with surgery. How cool is that?

Frequently Asked Questions About miraDry

Is miraDry Painful?

During the miraDry session, most patients experience little to no pain due to the local anesthesia that is applied. After treatment, some may feel temporary soreness or swelling, which resolves within a few weeks. These sensations are mild for most people and are a manageable aspect of the hyperhidrosis treatment.

What Is Recovery Like After miraDry?

After a miraDry treatment, you can go right back to work or other activities, but you may be advised to avoid antiperspirants or other products in the area for a couple of days. If you have any swelling or soreness, you can use ice packs or over-the-counter medication to help. You should notice a reduction in sweating very soon after the treatment. We are always here to answer any questions you may have about the process.

How Should I Prepare for miraDry?

To prepare for your miraDry treatment, it’s recommended to shave your underarms about two to three days prior to your session. Avoiding antiperspirants or deodorants on the day of treatment is also advised.

Can miraDry Be Used in Other Areas?

Currently, miraDry is FDA approved only for use under the arms. It targets these specific sweat glands to reduce underarm sweating but has not been cleared for use in other areas of the body.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

Ideal candidates for miraDry are individuals who struggle with excessive underarm sweating and are looking for a long-term solution. It is particularly beneficial for those who have not found adequate relief from antiperspirants, Botox, or other treatments.
