What is miraDry®?
miraDry® is the only non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment that will free you from the bothersome problems of underarm sweat. By eliminating the sweat and odor glands, you can feel confident that your underarms will remain dry in any situation.
Don’t I need to sweat?
While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 2-4 million sweat glands - only about 2% are found in your underarms. Eliminating this 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. With miraDry®, you will experience the many benefits of reducing sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat in other areas of your body.
How does it work?
miraDry uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat, odor, and hair glands reside and safely eliminates them.
You can expect immediate and lasting results. Once the miraDry® treatment eliminates the sweat, odor, and hair glands, they’re gone for good. Clinical studies show an average of 82% sweat reduction.
One of the reasons we were excited to get the miraDry machine is that it has one of the highest patient satisfaction ratings on RealSelf! 87% of patients on RealSelf say that miraDry® is worth it for treating underarm sweat, odor, and hair. You can read patient reviews here.
How many treatments?
You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your desired results.
Pain or downtime?
Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for patient comfort. Most patients experience little to no downtime and return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days post-treatment.
Pricing can vary depending on the treatment protocol to achieve your desired results and will be discussed during your consultation. You can expect to pay about $1950 per treatment.
Schedule a Consultation
Before your miraDry® treatment, you’ll need to come in for a consultation with Dr. Majewski to make sure that you’re a good candidate for the treatment. Dr. Majewski’s consultation fee is $100, which can be applied as a credit towards any treatment in the next 12 months.
