STEPS TO SWEAT-REDUCED
The Science behind miraDry™
The treatment is pretty simple. The miraDry™ system targets and eliminates the odorous sweat glands in the underarms utilizing thermal energy. Once the glands are eradicated, they do not regrow, keeping you free from sweat, stains and stress!
Do not worry! You are not alone. There are approximately 37 million in the U.S and over 3 million in Canada who suffer from excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis. miraDry™ treatment is the most simple and painless method for a permanent solution.
Do I not need to sweat?
Not necessarily only from your underarms. The human body contains approximately 2 – 4 Million sweat glands across the body while only 2% are in the underarm. Eliminating 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. The miraDry™ treatment provides the best solution to eliminate these sweat glands for a dry, sweat-reduced underarm but will continue to perspire normally elsewhere in your body.
Stressing over sweat?
You are not alone. There are 37 million people in the United States who suffer from excessive sweat and/or hyperhidrosis. Fortunately, miraDry offers a permanent solution. Take a quick survey to see if miraDry is right for you.
Why Do I Have Body Odor?
Your body has eccrine glands and apocrine glands that produce sweat to cool the body. Your apocrine glands are usually the culprit of underarm body odor. These glands produce a thicker type of sweat with an oily consistency made up of proteins and lipids (fats). The sweat from your apocrine glands mixed with bacteria on your skin creates odor.
What results can I expect?
You will be able to experience immediate and long-lasting results. The sweat glands are eliminated forever with clinically proven 82% sweat reduction and 89% odour reduction on average. As with any aesthetic treatment, patient results and experiences may vary.
How many treatments will I need?
You can see clear results in just one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will suggest the best protocol for your desired results. Some may choose to get a second treatment within 3 – 6 months later.
How long does it take?
The treatment will take about an hour or two depending on every individual’s body type.
Is there any pain or downtime?
Most patients experience a painless procedure with little to no downtime. Local anaesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for patient comfort. Patients can return to their routine work life immediately while exercise can be resumed within several days. You may experience mild swelling, numbness, bruising, or sensitivity in your underarm for several days after the procedure.
Is it safe? ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Of course, miraDry is safe and has been used in over 140,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record. FDA and Health Canada approves miraDry to reduce underarm sweat in just one appointment.
Very mild soreness or swelling may occur and will typically clear within a few days. Some may have short-term altered sensations in their underarm skin or upper arm which gradually disappear.
Who is the miraDry™ treatment for?
miraDry is for anyone who is troubled by underarm sweat and/or has been diagnosed with axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating in the underarms).
WHAT IS THE MIRADRY® TREATMENT?
The miraDry system is the only FDA-cleared treatment that can dramatically reduce underarm sweat by addressing the root cause of excessive sweat and its accompanying odor- not the symptoms.
DON’T I NEED SWEAT GLANDS?
While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 2-4 million sweat glands – only about 2% are found in your underarms. Eliminating this 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. With miraDry, you will experience the many benefits of reducing sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat in other areas of your body
