Before I describe MiraDry, I would like to say that I recently got this done. A month and half in and my armpits are completely dry. Its a fairly quick procedure. It last a little over an hour. The majority of the time is due to the doctor numbing the area. This is the only uncomfortable part of the procedure. Once this is done, the actual MiraDry procedure is pretty painless. So if you have axillary sweating. You should diffinetly consider this. I believe its worth the money.
miraDry is a safe, clinically proven, FDA-cleared solution for significantly reducing underarm sweat. It’s an outpatient procedure performed in your physician’s office, and it doesn’t involve any surgical incisions or cuts. miraDry works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the underarm sweat glands.
miraDry is the only FDA-cleared procedure that provides a lasting reduction of underarm sweat in a completely non-invasive way. Other treatment options, including antiperspirants and toxins, aim to temporarily disable the sweat glands for varying lengths of time – requiring repeat treatments to maintain effectiveness. Other options involve surgery, which poses inherent risks.
The miraDry procedure is an outpatient procedure performed at in office. It’s non-invasive, meaning it doesn’t involve surgery or any scalpels. Trained technicians customize the treatment for each patient, tailoring the procedure to the landscape of each individual underarm.
They begin by using a topical anesthetic on the treatment area for patient comfort. Then, they carefully place the miraDry device – a small, handheld piece of technology – across the area multiple times. The device uses a vacuum effect to lift the armpit’s loose skin and make it firm. Then, it sends electromagnetic pulses into the skin, targeting the area in the armpit where the sweat glands reside. A built-in cooling system prevents damage to skin, and the anesthetic prevents any patient discomfort.
$2400-$3000 for two separate treatments separated by 3 months. Sometimes only treatment is necessary, if your happy with the first treatments results.
*Currently this is not covered by insurances. To pay for this I applied for a CareCredit card. LIke I mentioned before, if you are an excessive sweater, than this procedure is worth the money
