MiraDry Q&A

What is miraDry?

miraDry is a treatment that destroys the sweat and odor glands in the underarm area. After these glands are destroyed, they can’t grow back. The treatment prevents you from producing the sweat and odor that are disrupting your life, so it’s a permanent treatment for hyperhidrosis. 

One of the bonus benefits of miraDry is that it also affects underarm hair follicles, which can mean a significant reduction in the hair there.

Don’t I need my sweat glands to cool my body?

You need some sweat glands for cooling your body, but sweat glands in the underarms account for only 1% of the total sweat glands in the human body. So miraDry treatment won’t have any effect on your ability to cool your body.

Am I a good candidate for miraDry?

miraDry could be right for you if you experience:

  • Excessive sweating, even when you’re not being physically active
  • Heavy sweating that soaks through your shirts
  • Disruptions in your personal life or schedule due to excessive sweating

The Brooklyn Aesthetics team is glad to discuss your symptoms with you and help you decide whether miraDry is the best treatment for you. 

How does miraDry treatment work?

Before the treatment starts, the team applies a local anesthetic to numb your skin. Then, they apply a temporary tattoo under your arms. This tattoo is a small map of your sweat glands, which tells them exactly where to deliver the treatment. 

Next, the team administers miraDry treatment using a handheld device. It delivers targeted beams of microwave energy directly to your sweat glands, which destroys them. 

Most patients have a comfortable experience thanks to the local anesthetic. The total treatment time is around an hour. You can immediately return home afterward, and it’s OK to resume most normal activities right away. But you should avoid strenuous exercise for a few days.   

What are miraDry results like?

You’re likely to notice less sweating as soon as the next day. miraDry offers excellent results. On average, 93% of people who have the treatment no long experience excessive sweating after one month. Further, 80% of people no longer experience underarm odor. 

Most people notice a reduction in underarm hair within a few months.
