miraDry


The miraDry® System is the only FDA-cleared treatment that can dramatically reduce underarm sweat by addressing the root cause of excessive sweat and its accompanying odor – not the symptoms. It’s an outpatient procedure performed at our Beverly Hills office. This innovative solution doesn’t involve any surgical incisions or cuts. miraDry® works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the underarm sweat glands.

miraDry® is the only FDA-cleared procedure that provides a lasting reduction of underarm sweat in a completely non-surgical way. Other treatment options, including antiperspirants and toxins, aim to temporarily disable the sweat glands for varying lengths of time – requiring repeat treatments to maintain effectiveness. Other options involve surgery, which poses inherent risks.

How The miraDry® System Works

The miraDry® system permanently reduces the underarm sweat glands, and the sweat glands don’t grow back after treatment. This results in a dramatic and lasting reduction of embarrassing underarm sweat. In a clinical study, patients experienced an average of 82% reduction in underarm sweat. You should notice a reduction in sweat immediately after a single miraDry® treatment. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person. Secondary effects include underarm hair and odor reduction. Ask your miraDry® physician if this procedure is right for you.

What to Expect on the Day of Your MiraDry Procedure?

We need full access to your underarm area, so we will ask you to remove your shirt and women will need to remove their bra. A drape will be given to cover you up. In a reclined position with your arms over your head, numbing medication will be administered. You may feel a stinging sensation with the first injection of numbing medication. After that, you should not have any discomfort throughout your procedure. Once you are numbed, tattoo treatment guides will be placed. These guides are similar to a temporary tattoo and will wash off after your procedure. The miraDry applicator will be applied over the treatment guide. The applicator looks like a suction cup and delivers microwave energy to eliminate underarm sweat and odor glands. These glands contain water, and miraDry will only directly attack water. This means no nerves or lymph nodes will be harmed during your procedure. The treatment takes about an hour, and you will be able to resume a normal routine. After one treatment, sweat and odor glands are about 80% eliminated. This is typically enough to never have to worry about wearing deodorant again. However, a second treatment can be given in two months if needed.

Localized soreness or swelling is normal, and usually clears within a few weeks. Some patients have temporary altered sensation in their underarm or upper arm skin, which gradually disappears.
