miraDry is a permanent solution that eliminates sweat glands thru controlled microwave energy delivered precisely at the level of your eccrine (sweat glands) in your underarms. A special cooling system protects your overlying skin, whilst local anaesthetic makes this procedure pain free. Controlled elimination of your sweat glands is over in an hour, and the procedure is repeated 3 months later. Once your treatments are completed, your sweating stops- forever.

How does miraDry eliminate my sweat glands?
miraDry’s unique microwave energy is focused in the region of the sweat glands
Differences in the fat and dermis causes a local area of energy, in turn causing reflection of energy, resulting in controlled heating
Upper layer of skin is cooled, whilst sweat glands are eliminated via continued heating. Sweat glands do not grow back after they are destroyed, resulting in permanent sweat reduction.
How is miraDry different from anti-sweating injections?
miraDry is a permanent solution for sweating, and once treatments are complete, you will have sweat reduction of 80-90% - for life. Anti-sweating treatments utilise a toxin that temporarily blocks sweating for several months. These injections will need to be repeated for life.
Will my sweat glands grow back after miraDry?
No, once treated, your eccrine or sweat glands do not regenerate. This is why miraDry can be considered as a permanent treatment.
Hang on…don't I need underarm sweat glands?
Did you know your body contains over 3.8 million sweat glands? Your axillae, or armpits only contain 1.5% of these. Eliminating this 1.5% of sweat glands will not cause your body to overheat or over compensate by sweating elsewhere.
Does miraDry cause increased sweating in other areas?
No. miraDry does not cause other areas to sweat more, so there is no chance of ‘compensatory sweating’.
Can miraDry be used to treat excessive sweating elsewhere?
No. miraDry is only indicated for excessive axillary hyperhidrosis, or sweating in the underarms. It cannot be used to treat sweaty hands, feet or other areas.
Other treatments can be used to treat sweating in these areas.
