Does miraDry® Really Work for Underarm Sweating?

2 Minute Read: 

Miracles do happen! 

Every year, thousands of people are forced to deal with the frustration of excessive underarm sweating, forcing men and women to try anything they can to mask the condition. 

The development of miraDry®, a non-surgical treatment that targets underarm sweating, has made summertime activities a little more joyful for thousands of patients. 

But does it really work?

According to its many fans, the answer is a resounding yes. 

What Are the Benefits of miraDry®?

Approved by the FDA in 2016, miraDry® uses a controlled heat device to reduce sweat glands and hair follicles in the underarm area. 

The major benefits include:
  • The elimination of sweating and its accompanying odor in the underarm area
  • Reduction of underarm hair (for many patients, hair is eliminated), equivalent to multiple laser hair removal treatments
  • The possibility for less toxic products, such as deodorants, in the sensitive underarm area (where lymph glands are also located) — expensive prescription antiperspirants will also be a thing of the past
  • Visible results after a single treatment
  • Permanent results

Most plastic surgeons and skin specialists will recommend one to two treatments to get the best results, but many patients experience a profound reduction in sweat and odor after just one. 

This is excellent news for anyone suffering from extreme underarm odor or hyperhidrosis — the medical name for sweating more than the body requires.

What Do Our Patients Say?

Who Will Benefit Most From miraDry® Treatments?

Many people struggle with excess underarm sweat. Sometimes the condition is hereditary, often it is stimulated by anxiety or nerves, and in times of extreme weather events, it can simply be a by-product of too much heat and humidity. 

Many patients turn to miraDry® treatments when even the strongest prescription antiperspirant isn’t effective. miraDry® has the advantage of being more or less permanent — follow-up treatments are not usually required after the initial one or two sessions

This treatment also improves the longevity of other sweat reduction treatments, such as BOTOX®, which tends to only last for a few months. 

For anyone who has suffered the self-consciousness, stained clothing, and low self-esteem that comes along with excessively sweaty armpits, miraDry® offers truly miraculous results.
