Finding yourself wearing extra layers of clothing to hide the sweat marks? Or undergoing multiple wardrobe changes a day? Excessive underarm sweating affects millions of Americans – but it doesn’t have to! Known as axillary hyperhidrosis, this condition can be successfully treated in a single, one-hour session with the new miraDry protocol.

MiraDRY is a new solution for frustrating and embarrassing underarm sweating. At the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York®, we remain at the forefront of technology and became one of the first centers in the world to offer miraDry® as a long-term solution for unwanted underarm sweating. We have also conducted clinical trials using the system. In addition, thanks to cutting-edge research conducted at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York, a significant reduction in underarm hair of any color can also be achieved – something never previously possible with laser hair removal.

How does miraDRY Work?

MiraDRY targets sweat glands under the arms, eliminating them to reduce sweat production in the area. After the area is numbed, a temporary tattoo is made to mark where the treatment will be administered. Microwave energy device is then applied to cover the length of the underarm. The procedure is virtually painless thanks to the application of local anesthetic prior to treatment.

Recovery is usually a matter of days in most cases, and many patients can return to work the next day. Improvement is immediate and permanent.

When Will I See Results?

You will notice a reduction in sweat immediately following your procedure. Many patients see full results after a single session. Others migh require a second session 3 months later to achieve an optimal outcome.

How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?

Most patients return to work and other activities on the same day or the day after treatment. Side effects after the procedure might include swelling, bruising and general soreness in the treatment area, which can persist for several days. However, the symptoms should not be severe enough to keep you from your daily routine.

Questions and Answers

Q: Is MiraDry Safe?

Q: Are There Any Side Effects?

Q: Is miraDRY Right For Me?

A: You may be a good candidate for miraDRY if you suffer from excessive underarm sweating and have not been able to find relief through other measures, like prescription antiperspirants. Our doctors are happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns and determine whether miraDRY is the right choice for you.
