Are you looking for an effective way to banish underarm sweating? You may want to ask your doctor about the innovative treatment known as miraDry. miraDry is clinically proven to reduce underarm sweating, but are miraDry results permanent.

miraDry is an FDA cleared non-surgical treatment for underarm sweating. It is a minimally invasive technology that uses microwave energy to destroy the sweat glands under the armpit.

Excessive underarm sweating, also known as axillary hyperhidrosis, is usually the result of overactive sweat glands. Since miraDry destroys the sweat glands, once those glands are gone they don’t grow back, so the results seen after miraDry treatment are permanent.

How does it work?

miraDry treatment takes about 1 hour to complete, and a single treatment is all most patients need to get the results they want.

If you are tired of underarm sweating, and are interested in a non-invasive treatment that can permanently resolve your problem, you may be a good candidate for miraDry. miraDry is approved for patients 18 years of age and older.
