The RejuvedermMD Aesthetic Center in Allen is proud to offer miraDry®. MiraDry® is a noninvasive, FDA approved treatment that helps patients eliminate the need for deodorants and antiperspirants. Underarm sweat while you’re exercising or nervous is normal, but if you are constantly having to worry about excess sweat that stains your clothes and causes embarrassing odor, then miraDry® might be a good option for you. Since humans are born with more than 2 million sweat glands in the body, only about 2% are in the armpits, which means that after a miraDry® treatment, you can easily live without them. Our team of experienced medical professionals recommend miraDry® therapy for patients who have tried other treatments, but have failed to overcome their excessive sweating.
miraDry® treatments can be very helpful for both men and women who want to eliminate their need for deodorants and antiperspirants. Patients who benefit from miraDry® may be using a lot of strong or prescription antiperspirants, but still have sweat stains on their clothing. Schedule a consultation to learn if you are a good candidate for a miraDry® treatment.
How it works
The miraDry® system uses proprietary miraWave™ energy that is directed to the underarm and targets and destroys sweat and odor glands in this area. Once those glands are destroyed they do not come back. For our patients, this means no more worrying about wet marks, antiperspirant marks, stickiness, and strong odors.
What to expect
miraDry® treatments are performed in our dermatology office and take approximately 2 hours from start to finish. While the procedure in not invasive, a numbing agent is applied to the underarms to make the process more comfortable for the patient. The miraDry® device is applied directly to the sweat glands in the armpits, and the energy pulses to immediately eliminate the glands. The heated energy works on the sweat and odor glands while the surface of the skin is kept cool by the miraDry® device. Both underarms are usually treated in one appointment and the patient is free to leave and resume their normal activities after their treatment.
After the treatment, the underarm area may have temporary swelling, soreness, numbness, or tingling for a few days to a few weeks, but you will have an immediate reduction in underarm sweat after the treatment. Once they are destroyed, sweat glands do not come back, so your results will be long lasting. You can resume normal activities right after your treatment, but it is best to avoid strenuous activity, like exercise, for a few days.
