With miraDry® treatment at Suburban Surgical Care Specialists, you may never have to worry about sweat stains, deodorant marks, or odors emanating from the armpits ever again. Our practice makes it a priority to invest in some of the latest technologies so patients can achieve the best possible treatment results – and miraDry® is one of the most innovative procedures to come along in quite some time. FDA-approved to treat hyperhidrosis in the underarms, miraDry® is unique in that it offers a non-surgical way to reduce, and even eliminate, underarm sweating… permanently.
Using electromagnetic energy, miraDry® delivers heat through a special handpiece to target the sweat glands in the underarms. The treatment is designed to eliminate the sweat glands entirely, leading to consistent dryness in the armpits. Although sweat glands are the body’s natural way of cooling itself, only two percent of sweat glands are located in the underarms, and therefore should not have an effect on overall body cooling.
The miraDry® procedure is different from other non-surgical hyperhidrosis treatments in that it is designed to be permanent. Many patients achieve immediate results after only one miraDry® treatment; however, some patients may require at least two treatments to resolve the problem. The miraDry® procedure does not require incisions and is performed on an outpatient basis. The entire treatment usually takes only about one hour to complete, and there is typically little to no downtime required.
miraDry® can ultimately make your concerns about excessive, noticeable sweating in the underarms completely disappear!
