What is miraDry?
Underarm sweat is very normal when you exercise or feel nervous. However, if you experience excessive sweating that stains your clothing and causes an embarrassing odor, you may have a medical condition called hyperhidrosis. At Ageless Grace in Murrieta, CA, Dr. Lily Phillips offers miraDry treatments to help with excessive underarm sweating. Made by Miramar Labs, miraDry is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely target perspiration and odor glands in the underarms. Since you have roughly two million sweat glands throughout your body with only 2% in the underarms, you can easily live without these. Often, after undergoing miraDry treatments, patients can live more comfortably without having to worry about sweat marks, deodorant streaks, stickiness, and odor. miraDry is a fast, nonsurgical procedure that can help patients feel more confident by reducing excessive underarm perspiration.
What are the benefits?
No one enjoys the feeling of dampness or self-consciousness from overactive sweating. At Ageless Grace, our miraDry treatments are designed to provide you with many benefits, including:
- Nonsurgical, simple treatment
- Reduced moisture and dampness from perspiration
- Boosted confidence and trust in your body
- Long-lasting results you can enjoy for months to come
"I had the miradry done by Robert, PA and Jennifer, NP. They explained the procedure, side effects, and recovery thoroughly. The actual procedure was painless and I was in and out in about an hour. I iced and took NSAIDs as Robert advised and I felt ok after a few days. I stayed swollen for a few weeks but I no longer sweat and don’t have to use deodorant anymore. Miradry definitely works wonders."- K.A. / Google / Oct 03, 2019
"Had a great experience with Ageless Grace and would highly recommend them to others. I received the Miradry treatment about 2 weeks ago and I'm so happy with the results and the entire process. The staff there is so nice and helpful and the recovery time was minimal. So happy to no longer need clinical strength deodorant and wear colorful shifts, thank you Ageless Grace!"- T.S. / Google / Nov 14, 2019
Am I A Good Candidate for miraDry?
miraDry can help anybody who wants to take control of the sweat and odor from their underarms. miraDry is a excellent option if you:
- Have consistent problems with excessive underarm perspiration
- Regularly have stains in the underarm area of your shirts
- Wish to avoid the harsh chemicals and toxins in deodorants
- Are embarrassed by the odor from your armpits
- Want to feel cleaner and fresher
What to Expect From miraDry Treatments
At the beginning of your treatment, Dr. Phillips will clean your underarms, mark the area, and apply a topical anesthetic. Next, we pass the miraDry device over the underarms, which uses light suction to bring the sweat glands near the top layer of the skin. To reduce sweat glands, the device emits thermal energy while a cooling sensation is applied to the skin. Typically, your session takes about one hour. Following the procedure, your underarm area may have temporary swelling, soreness, numbness, or tingling for a few days, but you will have an immediate reduction in underarm perspiration. For optimal results, we recommend two treatments at approximately 2 – 3 months apart. You can resume your normal routine right after your procedure, but you should avoid strenuous activities for about a week.
Is miraDry safe?
Yes, miraDry has been proven to be safe when administered by a professional. This treatment uses proven technology to target the sweat and odor glands in your underarms, with little to no collateral damage. Our team members at Ageless Grace take every measure to ensure your safety and comfort during this process.
How long does it take to see results from miraDry?
Many patients see a significant reduction in underarm sweating and odor after just one treatment with miraDry. However, we may recommend a second session with our staff to achieve optimal outcomes. Once the sweat and odor glands are destroyed, they do not grow back, so you can enjoy long-lasting results.
How do you speed up recovery from miraDry?
Recovery from miraDry is typically very short, but we can provide detailed instructions for taking care of the treated areas at home. We recommend cool compresses and over-the-counter pain medication to help with any discomfort you may experience. Most patients can return to their normal activities on the same day as their treatment.
