Frequently Asked Questions
What is the miraDry® procedure?
The miraDry procedure is quick, non-invasive, and provides a lasting solution for excessive underarm sweat. The handpiece from the miraDry System, when placed on the underarm, delivers precisely controlled thermal energy to the region where the sweat glands reside and eliminate sweat glands non-invasively. The sweat glands don’t grow back once eliminated, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.
What will my miraDry consultation be like?
During your consultation, the clinician will examine your underarms. Your goals for getting a miraDry treatment will be discussed. You will also go over your medical history so the clinician can assess if you are a viable candidate for this permanent non-surgical treatment option.
What is the procedure like?
The procedure involves no surgical incisions or cuts. The clinician customizes treatment for each underarm area with multiple placements of the miraDry handpiece. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the procedure to maintain comfort. Your underarms will be marked with a temporary tattoo as a guide for the treatment.
Your office visit appointment will generally last about an hour. Two procedures spaced three months apart are required to maximize the results and duration.
What happens after the procedure?
There is minimal to no downtime following the procedure. Your doctor will likely recommend mild over-the-counter pain medication and the use of ice packs for a few days. You should be able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure, and you can typically resume exercise within several days. Some localized soreness or swelling is normal and typically clears within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
There are also a few aftercare do’s and don’ts to remember. Put ice on the treated areas, clean them, and wear only loose tops, nothing tight. These can help post-treatment swelling and soreness go away.
You will need to avoid working out for a few days after the procedure. You should avoid shaving and applying deodorant or antiperspirant as well.
What results can I expect?
Most patients report a dramatic reduction of their sweat – in a recent clinical study1, the average sweat reduction was 82%. You should see a reduction in sweat immediately after treatment. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person.

How long will the results last?
The results are lasting because the sweat glands do not come back or regenerate after they have been eliminated. The miraDry procedure uses a safe, non-invasive technology that is FDA cleared to eliminate sweat glands in the underarm.
Don’t I need my underarm sweat glands?
Your body contains over 4 million sweat glands, with only about 2% located in the underarms. Eliminating this 2% will not affect the body’s ability to cool itself.
How is the miraDry procedure different from other treatment options?
Other treatment options are designed to temporarily disable the sweat glands, or involve surgery which contains inherent risks. Only the miraDry procedure provides a lasting solution with a non-invasive treatment.
Is the miraDry procedure right for me?
If embarrassing underarm sweat outbreaks, stained clothing, or frequent antiperspirant application interfere with your daily life, then you may be a good candidate for the miraDry procedure. It might also be ideal for you if you are embarrassed about underarm odor or have tried several other solutions without any success.
However, miraDry might not be suitable for you if you require supplemental oxygen or experience issues as a result of local anesthesia. The procedure is also not ideal for you if you have an electronic implant like a pacemaker.
How much does miraDry cost?
The typical cost of a miraDry treatment depends on several factors, including the severity of the underarm sweating, the number of treatments needed, and the experience of the treatment provider. You can get the full price details upon consultation.
