The Basics of the miraDry Procedure

Published by Marketing Team

The Basics of the miraDry ProcedureExcessive underarm sweating can cause embarrassment and stress. Sweat also ruins clothing and may negatively affect your work and social life due to decreased confidence. Fortunately there is a non-surgical solution to combating excessive sweating that offers permanent results.

How miraDry® Works:

The miraDry procedure available from your dermatologist uses specially targeted electromagnetic energy to destroy the sweat glands under your arms. Because these glands do not regenerate, they will no longer be able to produce sweat, making this procedure ideal for permanent relief from underarm sweating. Only 2% of your body’s sweat glands are located beneath your arms, so you will notice no increase in sweating from other areas of the body and no drop in your ability to cool yourself.

What You Can Expect from Your miraDry Procedure:

Before your miraDry procedure, your underarm area will be examined and marked by your dermatologist to identify the areas that will be treated. You will be asked to lie back and relax, and your dermatologist will apply the miraDry to your underarms. The procedure itself is painless and lasts for about an hour. After your miraDry treatment; no exercising the upper extremities for 3 days. You will expect mild swelling that is controlled with ice and ibuprofen. Call Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology for additional aftercare instructions following your procedure.

What Results miraDry Offers:

Because miraDry eliminates the sweat glands beneath your arms, it is a permanent solution to excessive underarm sweating. For maximum coverage and efficacy, dermatologists recommend two miraDry treatments scheduled three months apart. Studies report that on average, underarm sweating is reduced in those who undergo two miraDry procedures by up to 90%.

Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology was one of the first practices in the United States to offer the miraDry procedure to their patients. To learn more about miraDry, read our miraDry page and contact our office at 316-245-9965 to schedule a consultation with one of our providers.
