Frequently Asked Questions for MiraDry:
What is MiraDry?
MiraDry is the only non-invasive, FDA approved aesthetic treatment that removes underarm sweat and odor glands safely.
How is it performed?
A local anesthetic is administered to the under arms prior to the start of treatment to assist in comfort, with patients describing the initial injections as the only uncomfortable part of the procedure. Each treatment is customized to the patient's underarms, with the MiraDry handpick being placed in multiple areas to target sweat and odor glands. It takes only 1.5 hours hours in the office.
Don't I need sweat glands?

How many treatments will I need?
