miraSmooth™ is a revolutionary new treatment that is helping people achieve permanently smooth and dry underarms. The innovative solution has been cleared by the FDA to reduce hair and eliminate sweat and odor in the underarm area. It has proven effective through its use of microwave energy that damages hair follicles and sweat glands.
In addition to offering relief from excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), similar to the miraDry® procedure, miraSmooth™ is the first treatment of its kind to provide permanent hair removal for all hair colors and skin types. Unlike laser treatments that cannot address light or white hair, the new microwave technology allows our team at Suburban Surgical Care Specialists to offer a “color-blind” solution, which treats any targeted hair down to its roots.
Benefits of miraSmooth™
This state-of-the-art treatment holds numerous benefits and can be truly life-changing for some individuals. Advantages of undergoing the miraSmooth™ procedure include:
- Effective on all hair colors, even light hair
- Can permanently reduce hair growth on all complexions
- Stops underarm sweat, often associated with hyperhidrosis
- Prevents odor in the armpits
- Significant results after only one treatment session
- Non-invasive solution that is virtually painless
The miraSmooth™ Procedure
Before your miraSmooth™ treatment, your doctor will apply a local anesthetic to the target area to minimize any potential discomfort. Using a temporary marking system on your armpit, the device will then be slowly guided across your skin. This delivers heat deep under the skin, targeting the area where the hair follicles and sweat glands are located. The electromagnetic waves heat the water in the sweat and odor glands, which damages them permanently.
You may feel slight suction and a warm sensation from the handpiece, but patients typically report minimal discomfort because of the pre-treatment numbing. The entire miraSmooth™ process takes approximately one hour.
Recovery and Results
Immediately after your treatment, you will most likely experience mild swelling, soreness, and redness, though most patients feel fine to return to work right away. These side effects usually subsides within a few days to a few weeks.
miraSmooth™ offers a 70% reduction in hair growth after just one treatment. While many patients are happy with their results after one appointment, you may wish to return after three months for a follow-up visit to achieve optimal results. It is important to note that since only 2% of sweat glands are located in the underarm area, the miraSmooth™ procedure can safely destroy these without affecting your body’s ability to cool down.
