Excessive sweating can be socially debilitating for those who have it. People with hyperhidrosis often are forced to avoid certain social situations and clothing choices because of their condition. Prescription medication may be temporarily helpful for many, but side effects and irritation from topicals can limit use. MiraDry finally offers a permanent solution to this condition.

This device is a game-changer for those with hyperhidrosis, but is also very effective for those patients who are bothered by sweating for other reasons, such as an intolerance to deodorant, rashes from sweat and friction, and for those who wish to avoid the chemicals found in antiperspirants.

The Procedure

The MiraDry procedure is essentially pain-free, takes approximately one hour to perform and there is minimal to no “down time”. Results are immediate and permanent. Most patients with average sweating require one treatment, and those with hyperhidrosis may require a second treatment. Patients who prefer a more natural solution to sweating and underarm odor chose Miradry to eliminate the need for aluminum-based antiperspirants. MiraDry uses energy to reduce or eliminate sweat, odor, and hair safely and effectively, often with just one treatment.

Why miraDry non-surgical treatments in Washington, DC are ideal for reducing sweat

MiraDry targets sweat glands with thermal energy that targets water in the tissue. Because underarm sweat glands contain more water than surrounding tissues, they absorb the energy readily and are destroyed without collateral harm to skin, muscles, or bone. However, hair follicles in the treatment area are affected, so hair growth is greatly reduced.

Only local numbing is needed for a well-tolerated treatment session that takes less than two hours. Then you may return to work or regular activities right away. Residual tenderness or swelling typically resolves in a few days and can be managed with ice packs or over-the-counter analgesics.

Results are immediate and dramatic – on average an 82 percent reduction in sweating with one treatment. Sweat glands do not regenerate, so the improvement is permanent. Many miraDry patients never need to use underarm deodorant or antiperspirant again.

Is miraDry safe?

miradry machine imageYES! miraDry is cleared by the FDA, and the clinicians at Braun Dermatology are trained and experienced in the technique.

The number of sweat glands eliminated with miraDry represents only a small percentage of those throughout the body. There is no detrimental health effect, and sweat does not re-route to other glands. You simply have little or no perspiration and odor, and reduced hair growth under your arms.

MiraDry is minimally-invasive, non-surgical, and the only medication involved is numbing injections. Thus, most people can be good candidates for treatment, without post-surgical risk of infection or chance of drug interaction.

Individuals who do not suffer from clinical hyperhidrosis may also consider treatment. miraDry can be a good choice for athletes, those for whom sweating is a side effect of necessary medications or anyone who wants to feel dry and fresh 24/7/365.
