Excessive underarm sweating can come at the most inopportune times; during a date, a job interview, maybe even a presentation. Also known as hyperhidrosis, excessive underarm sweating can create considerable anxiety and worry over pit stains and body odor. If you suffer from it, you might find yourself shying away from after-work get togethers, or having to shower multiple times throughout day just to feel fresh.

How Does the miraDry treatment Work?
Your miraDry treatment should take about one hour complete, and you’ll be comfortably lying down for the duration of the procedure. MiraDry’s hyperhidrosis treatment works by delivering electromagnetic energy into the sweat and odor glands that reside in your underarms. While the electromagnetic energy and heat is being used to destroy the sweat glands, a coordinated cooling action will be delivered from the device at the same time in order to protect the top layers of the skin. Since local anesthesia will be administered before the treatment, it will be almost or even completely painless. Only 2% of your sweat glands reside in your underarms, so there’s no need to worry about how miraDry will affect your overall respiration.
Results from the Hyperhidrosis Treatment
Since miraDry eliminates sweat glands right there on the spot, you should be able to see an immediate reduction in sweating. While one treatment is usually enough, it’s important to talk to your surgeon about the possibility of multiple treatments. It will really depend on what you desire in terms of reducing excessive underarm sweating. Whatever results you want, the miraDry treatment is long-lasting.
Recovery from the Hyperhidrosis Treatment
There is minimal to no downtime after miraDry, although some patients might experience temporary redness and swelling. Most patients go back to work immediately after miraDry, and after a few days, they should be able to begin exercising and undergoing strenuous activity.
