Is MiraDry permanent?

Is excessive, uncontrollable underarm sweating a problem for you? If it is, and you’re looking for a simple fix, miraDry may be the answer for you. miraDry is a quick, non-invasive solution for underarm sweating, but is miraDry permanent.

Excessive underarm sweating
Although sweating is a good and necessary mechanism that the body uses to regulate temperature, excessive underarm sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis) is a serious medical condition.

People with axillary hyperhidrosis often feel insecure, self-conscious, and anxious about their sweaty underarms, and anti-perspirants are often little help. That’s why the revolutionary miraDry has become so popular since being released.

What is miraDry?
miraDry is an FDA cleared procedure for the reduction of underarm sweating. The device delivers electromagnetic energy that targets the sweat and odor glands in the underarms. The resulting heat damages the glands, so after treatment patients will notice a significant reduction in sweat and odor. miraDry typically reduces sweating by up to 80%.

Is miraDry permanent?
miraDry uses electromagnetic energy to eradicate the sweat glands, and since the sweat glands are gone for good, the results are long-lasting.Preliminary studies indicate that the results of miraDry last for 2 years, but since the sweat glands do not redevelop; these outcomes are expected to be permanent.

Most patients will see results after under going just one miraDry treatment, but some may benefit from an additional treatment.

The procedure takes about one hour, and there is no downtime, so patients can resume daily activities right after treatment.
