Overview

Are you bothered by your underarm sweat? Now there is a lasting treatment that can make embarrassing sweat a thing of the past. The miraDry procedure is safe and clinically proven to provide a significant reduction of underarm sweat. It uses the only noninvasive technology that is FDA cleared to eliminate sweat glands. This cosmetic procedure utilizes pulsed energy to specifically target sweat glands without disturbing the surrounding tissue. To schedule an appointment with one of our licensed estheticians to see if miraDry is right for you, call Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA today. 

Procedure Process

The miraDry system delivers electromagnetic energy noninvasively to the area where the sweat glands reside. However, to provide extra comfort, local anesthesia is injected into the underarm area prior to the procedure. Typically, two procedures are recommended three months apart to maximize the results and duration. Each procedure appointment generally lasts about an hour. Since miraDry uses precisely controlled energy to eliminate underarm sweat glands, these structures don’t typically grow back after treatment, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.

What to Expect

You can expect minimal to no downtime following your miraDry procedure and should be able to return to normal activities or work right after your session. Typically, strenuous exercise should be avoided but can resume within several days. Localized soreness or swelling is common and usually clears within a few weeks. These symptoms may also be eased with ice packs or over-the-counter pain medication. Some patients have short-term, altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
