MIRADRY

The MiraDry system is a non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment that uses thermal energy that targets and eliminates the sweat and odour glands and hair follicle in your underarm. This is a permanent treatment as once the glands are destroyed they do not grow back.

MiraDry eliminates sweat glands thru controlled microwave energy  delivered precisely at the level of  your eccrine (sweat glands) in your underarms.  A special cooling system protects your overlying skin, whilst local anaesthetic makes this procedure pain free. Controlled elimination of your sweat glands is over in an hour, and the procedure is repeated 3 months later. Once your treatments are completed, your sweating stops- forever.

TREATMENT PROCESS

BENEFITS OF MIRADRY

  • Dramatic reduction of underarm sweat – Once treatment is completed, you will notice an average sweat reduction of 80-90%- PERMANENTLY

  • Toxin-free – miraDry does NOT use any harmful toxins, nor does it use radiation to treat your underarms
  • Minimal to no downtime – patient can resume rigorous exercise and activity in 3-5 days

RESULTS
