What is miraDry for hyperhidrosis?
The innovative miraDry treatment system offers patients with hyperhidrosis the opportunity to reduce or prevent excessive sweating, body odor, and other disruptive symptoms by destroying sweat glands under the arms. During a miraDry treatment in, the underarms will be cleansed, and anesthetized. Once the patient is comfortable, the miraDry device will be set in place and will work to bring sweat glands toward the skin’s surface and destroy them.
Is there any recovery period after miraDry?
Almost immediately following miraDry treatment, patients may experience a mild to moderate amount of redness, swelling, and irritation under the arms. These symptoms usually resolve on their own in as little as a few days to weeks. Nevertheless, patients can return to their normal daily routines while experiencing an improvement in their symptoms.
How many miraDry sessions do you need?
For the majority of patients, a single miraDry session is all that is needed to achieve their desired results. In some cases, a repeat session may be needed. Keep in mind the original studies were done using two treatment sessions three months apart. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your symptoms, evaluate your overall health and other medical conditions, and determine if you are a candidate for treatment.
Is miraDry permanent?
Sweat glands that are destroyed with miraDry will not grow back. Most men and women enjoy years of relief from excessive sweating and odor after a single miraDry treatment. Should you begin to notice increased sweating after your initial miraDry treatment, a second treatment can be done in as little as three months after your first treatment.
Is there any age limit for hyperhidrosis?
Even thought the miraDry treatment is FDA cleared for 18 and over, if your teen suffers from excessive sweating or odor issues, please don't hesitate to schedule a consultation so we can discuss if miraDry is right for them.
