What is the miraDry Procedure?
Using a FDA approved microwave system, electromagnetic waves can dissolve sweat glands in the underarm with precision, effectively eliminating the issue of excessive underarm sweating for good. The procedure is relatively painless when administered with a cooling agent, causing only a warm sensation or mild discomfort. Typically, a patient will undergo a series of two to three treatments to achieve full results, however, patients can expect a dramatic reduction in underarm sweating following a single treatment.
One session only takes about one hour and can be administered with local anesthesia if a patient is particularly concerned about discomfort. There is also no recovery time needed as patients may leave a procedure with only mild tenderness, swelling, or redness in the armpit or upper arm, which can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers.
Is miraDry Safe?
At Ava MD, patient safety is a top priority for our team of expert cosmetic dermatologists. MiraDry is a safe, non-invasive treatment for hyperhidrosis that is not only effective, but provides permanent results. The sweat glands in the underarms can be safely eliminated without damaging the layers of skin and tissue surrounding them.
Sweating is an essential bodily function that helps regulate body temperature and prevent over-heating. Typically, an individual has about two to four million sweat glands in the body, so eliminating those in the underarm does not impair the body’s ability to temperature control.
Hyperhidrosis is a disorder that affects roughly two to three percent of Americans, and causes significant discomfort and embarrassment, interfering with one’s professional and personal life, not to mention staining clothing. If you suffer from this condition, there is a safe solution available from Ava MD!
