Sweat Reduction / MiraDry

MiraDry offers a permanent solution for those who suffer from excessive sweat and/or hyperhidrosis.

What is MiraDry?

Are you self-conscious about lifting your arms due to excess sweating? 

Have you ever been too embarrassed to give hugs, or be in a hot environment due to the sweat and odor coming from your underarms? 

You are not alone.

Nearly 40 million people in the United States suffer from excessive underarm sweating. Fortunately, you don’t have to deal with this inconvenient and embarrassing situation any longer. 

MiraDry is a revolutionary FDA-approved treatment that permanently decreases underarm sweat in as little as one treatment (two treatments may be necessary for maximum results).

Antiperspirants and Botox can be effective in temporarily blocking sweat glands, but they may not be a permanent fix. MiraDry is different because it lasts forever.

 If you are tired of suffering from excessive underarm sweat, give MiraDry a try.

Hyperhidrosis — What is it?

Hyperhidrosis is otherwise known as excessive sweating. Nearly 2%-3% of Americans suffer from excessive underarm sweating and/or excessive sweating of the palms and feet. This disorder commonly begins in adolescence, and if it is not treated, it can continue throughout a person’s life. 

Excessive sweating can negatively affect confidence, relationships, and your overall ability to interact in social situations comfortably.

Medicated deodorants are available over the counter or by prescription, but many people with this condition find little relief in theses antiperspirants. This can be especially true for people living in New York City since much of a New Yorkers’ life is spent walking outside or in a hot subway. 

This is why many people have made the decision to ask their doctor about MiraDry

What Causes Hyperhidrosis?

For some, sweating may be triggered by high temperatures or changes in mood, but excessive sweating during these conditions is rare.

People who have hyperhidrosis tend to sweat all the time, regardless of the temperature or how they feel.

This can lead to discomfort, embarrassment, and unwanted odor. In some cases, hyperhidrosis may be caused by an underlying issue, such as a neurologic or infectious disease. 

How MiraDry Stops Excessive Sweating 

Many people have been impressed with the results of MiraDry in NYC. In fact, a recent study has shown Mira Dry to be an effective long term treatment option for more than 90% of the people that have undergone the procedure. 

MiraDry works by destroying sweat glands located under the armpits and has been shown to reduce excessive underarm sweating and odor by more than 80%. Currently, it has not been approved for any other area on the body other than the underarms. 

Isn’t Sweating Good for You?

In short, yes. 

Sweating is absolutely necessary for your body as it helps to keep your body cool and comfortable by regulating your internal temperature.

However, your body has more than 4 million sweat glands that are used to achieve this goal. Your underarms have less than 2% of those sweat glands and will not negatively affect your body’s ability to sweat and regulate temperature.

MiraDry only helps to stop excessive underarm sweat. Furthermore, when you try MiraDry in New York City, you do not have to worry about it causing increased sweating in other parts of your body.

The procedure simply removes a small percentage of sweat glands under your arms. Your body doesn’t need to overcompensate for this.

How Does MiraDry Work?

Unlike other procedures that can be invasive, painful, and cause a plethora of side effects, MiraDry is a rather simple solution to excessive underarm sweating. When undergoing a procedure of MiraDay in New York City, thermal energy is used to target and destroy both odor and sweat glands that are in your underarms.

Within one to two treatments, these glands are permanently killed. This means that you do not have to worry about them growing back or becoming a problem again. This makes MiraDry a permanent solution to excessive underarm sweat.

Preparing for Your MiraDry Session

Preparing for your MiraDry appointment is easy. Three days before your procedure begins, it is recommended that you shave your underarms. When you arrive for your treatment, there should be a small amount of hair growth, which will help the MiraDry specialist identify the area that needs to be treated.

If you forget to shave before your appointment, you may want to speak with your doctor about your appointment. On the day of the procedure, you should wear a shirt with loose armholes that can be easily cleaned. 

During the treatment, it is advised that men wear a tank top or no shirt at all and for women to wear a tank top, sports bra, or camisole. 

What Will Your MiraDry Session Be Like?

You should expect your MiraDry appointment to last approximately 60 to 90 minutes. Many clients like to bring headphones and their phone to listen to music during the procedure to help pass the time. 

The MiraDry specialist will use a handheld device to apply electromagnetic energy to destroy most of the sweat and odor glands under your arms.

Before the procedure begins, your doctor will apply local anesthesia to your underarms so you will experience very little to no pain during the treatment. 

However, you may feel a slight pinching/pulling feeling and minor discomfort (occasional brief “hot spots”).

After the procedure has concluded, you may experience swelling, redness, and mild pain in the treated areas, but the overall your side effects should be minimal.

Tips for MiraDry Recovery

Recovering from a MiraDry treatment can take anywhere between a few days to two weeks. After your appointment for MiraDry has concluded, you should notice an immediate reduction in excessive underarm sweat. 

However, you may also notice that your underarms may be red and you might experience light to mild swelling. They may also be numb for a few hours following the treatment.

Numbness may also be experienced in your arms after the treatment. Listed below are some tips to follow a few days after your MiraDry procedure: 

  • Ice the treated area immediately after the procedure (ensure that the ice is wrapped to avoid frostbite). Use ice as long as there is swelling prevalent. 
  • Keep your underarms clean by washing them with gentle liquid soap and water. 
  • Wear loose-fitting shirts that allow your underarms to breath for a few days.
  • Do not shave or use deodorant and/or antiperspirant for a few days afterward.
  • Stay away from exercise or any other activity that would normally cause you to sweat.
  • Take all prescribed medications to reduce the amount of swelling and discomfort.
  • Apply prescribed or OTC antibiotic ointments regularly.

How Long Does MiraDry Last?

MiraDry is not a temporary solution to excessive underarm sweating. It is a permanent one. Since the procedure totally destroys targeted sweat and odor glands, they do not grow back.

You can expect to experience relief from overly sweaty underarms for a long time to come. Depending on the severity of your hypohidrosis, your doctor may recommend two appointments instead of one.
