FDA-approved MiraDry® is a leading non-invasive treatment for excessive underarm sweat, also called hyperhidrosis. If you are one of the many men and women considering MiraDry to help you feel cooler and more comfortable with reduced underarm sweat, take a look at the answers to these frequently asked questions about MiraDry and its results.
How Effective Is MiraDry?
Clinical studies have found that, on average, MiraDry effectively reduces underarm sweat by 82%. MiraDry works by emitting electromagnetic energy directly into the sweat glands in your underarm area. The controlled heat from this process destroys targeted sweat glands, which are then eliminated through your body’s natural metabolic process. Once these sweat glands are gone, they are gone for good and can longer produce excess sweat and odor.
How Soon Will I See MiraDry Results?
Most people notice a significant reduction in sweat and odor immediately after their MiraDry treatment, though it can take a day or so to see full sweat reduction results.
Additionally, most people need only a single MiraDry treatment session to see (or smell!) optimal results.
Will I Still Be Able to Sweat after MiraDry?
Yes, your body will still be able to sweat and cool down after getting MiraDry. You have anywhere from 2 to 4 million sweat glands located throughout your body, with only around 2 percent of those glands in your underarm area. Thus, you will still have plenty left through which your body can perspire.
