Short answer: yes!
Miradry is a very effective treatment for decreasing sweating underneath the arms. This treatment has been FDA approved in the United States since 2011, and we have had it at this office since it first came out. I have performed many treatments and have had the treatment myself. Miradry can literally be life changing for people who have problems with underarm sweating or odor.
The Miradry treatment actually microwaves the sweat glands underneath your arms. Since the glands are destroyed you will have a decrease in sweating and also a decrease in odor. The treatment takes about an hour and is easily tolerated since the entire area will be numbed before the treatment begins. Expect bruising and swelling, most of which will go away in a couple of weeks. The decrease in sweating and odor happens immediately.
Anyone who has true hyperhidrosis, or severe underarm sweating will need two treatments. People who just don’t want to wear deodorant or don’t sweat that much may be able to get away with one treatment.
The biggest limitation of Miradry is that we can only treat the underarm area. Many people have problems with hands and feet but, unfortunately, we cannot treat those areas with this technology.
