MiraDry Q & A
What is miraDry?
miraDry is a non-surgical procedure designed to resolve normal and excessive levels of underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis). Idaho Skin Institute has helped many patients get relief from their embarrassing and irritating underarm sweat.
The unique benefits of miraDry include:
- Elimination of underarm sweat glands
- Zero incisions
- Little to no downtime
- Prevention of body odor
- Immediate and permanent results
- No compensatory sweating
- Reduced dependence on antiperspirants
- Boost in confidence
Underarm sweating is a common but embarrassing problem. With miraDry, Idaho Skin Institute provides a permanent solution for this common condition that may improve your quality of life.
How does miraDry work?
The innovative cosmetic dermatology tool miraDry uses thermal heat energy that targets the sweat and odor glands under your arms and eliminates them. The 2-4 million sweat glands located all over your body work to keep your body cool.
Your underarm sweat glands make up only 2-4% of the total sweat glands in your body. Eliminating them with miraDry stops the embarrassing underarm sweat, but doesn’t affect your body’s natural cooling system and your overall health and wellness.
What happens during treatment with miraDry?
Your miraDry treatments occur at Idaho Skin Institute and generally take about an hour. To ease discomfort, your specialist administers a local anesthetic to the treatment area. They then mark the treatment area with a temporary tattoo and apply the thermal device to eliminate your sweat glands.
You may experience some swelling, redness, and sensitivity after your miraDry session. However, you can go back to most of your usual activities after treatment, including work. But Idaho Skin Institute recommends you put off your usual exercise routine for a few days while your skin heals.
When does miraDry show results?
You should notice an improvement in your underarm sweating immediately after your first miraDry treatment. Though many patients only need one treatment to get optimal results, if you suffer from severe hyperhidrosis, your provider may suggest a series of treatments.
Once miraDry destroys your sweat glands, they don’t come back, which means your results are permanent. On average, miraDry reduces underarm sweating by as much as 82% and underarm odor by as much as 89%.
