MiraDry – The Permanent Excessive Sweating Solution
Introducing MiraDry - A permanent solution to the excessive sweating of your underarms.*
MiraDry is the only FDA-cleared treatment that can dramatically reduce underarm sweat in as little as one appointment! Almost 37 million people in the United States (130,000 in Arizona) suffer from profuse sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis. It affects several aspects of their daily life from work, school and social settings, to even their clothing choices.
Phoenix Skin Dermatology is pleased to offer a permanent resolution to axillary hyperhidrosis (the excessive sweating of your underarms) with the MiraDry procedure. Can you imagine not wearing deodorant anymore and being done with underarm sweat AND smell? Plus the benefit of saving money and time on daily cost and application of deodorants filled with chemicals!What is the MiraDry procedure?
The MiraDry procedure is an FDA cleared non-invasive method to eliminate the sweat glands in your underarms. It uses microwave energy to destroy the sweat glands, eliminating the excessive sweating problems of people with axillary hyperhidrosis. After application of a local anesthesia for comfort, the MiraDry hand piece is placed where the sweat glands reside and applies the energy that eliminates them. The treatment will take about an hour.*What are the expectations with MiraDry?
An immediate reduction in sweat will be noticed after the procedure is complete. Some localized soreness or swelling will occur and is normal, treated with a mild over-the counter pain reliever and ice packs. Downtime is minimal but we do recommend that you not exercise for a few days after treatment. As with any medical procedure, results vary from person to person.
The eliminated sweat glands do not grow back or regenerate. A recent clinical study indicated an 86% reduction in underarm sweating. The procedure requires 2 treatments, 3 months apart for maximum results.Aren’t sweat glands used to naturally cool my body?
The human body contains over 4,000,000 sweat glands as part of its cooling system. Only 2% reside in the underarms. The remaining 98% is still more than sufficient to cool your body.What about sweating from the hands and feet?
Presently, MiraDry is available for just the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis). If MiraDry is not an option for you, a separate appointment can be made for hyperhidrosis. The cost of a regular office visit will be applied. Phoenix Skin Dermatology can treat hyperhidrosis symptoms such as sweaty palms (plantar) and feet (palmar) with a variety of medical options. Those options include aluminum chloride based products (Drysol, Certain Dri, etc), iontophoresis, and Botox injections.Patient Testimonial
"I have to say the MiraDry was definitely an experience. The entire procedure in itself was painless and quick. I have experienced nothing but a positive outcome due to this procedure. For the first time in 25 years I am not embarrassed about my profuse sweating, which since the procedure has been non-existent! There was hardly any down time needed after the procedure, as stated there is severe swelling, however tolerable if rules are followed with keeping a cool compress on to minimize swelling.* Aside from that, the MiraDry procedure went well and I am truly pleased with my results thus far. I recommend this procedure to anyone who suffers from excessive sweating. It has definitely changed my life."*
