Am I a Good Candidate for miraDry Treatments?

Do you keep your elbows glued to your side in public? Do you spot test shirts before purchasing to see how they respond to moisture? Are you always layering with a jacket? If you’ve got excessive underarm sweating, come see us at Beatitude Aesthetic Medicine & Acne Center. miraDry can help!

What is miraDry?

A safe and clinically proven procedure, miraDry is the only FDA cleared procedure that provides long term relief from excessive sweating and is completely non-invasive. The results are long lasting and don’t require repeat treatments like Botox for excessive sweating. Skip the expensive antiperspirants and try something that really works!

miraDry uses controlled electromagnetic energy to deactivate sweat glands under the arm. The procedure completely eliminates these sweat glands making the results very long lasting. No cuts or incisions are needed for treatment. We use a mild anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Treatment takes about an hour and we recommend two treatments for significant results. miraDry can only be used under the arm, not on other areas of the body.

If you suffer from excessive sweating, you’re likely a great candidate for miraDry. Excessive sweating affects an estimated 1 in 5 adults. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Chang to discuss the procedure and learn if you’d be a good candidate.

What’s Recovery Like?

miraDry patients typically experience low downtime post-procedure. Some patients experience a bit of swelling and soreness under and near the top of the arm, but this discomfort is typically very mild. We’ve found that ice packs can help reduce any discomfort that may occur. We typically recommend one day of recovery with non-stop 24 hours of icing. Most normal activities can typically be resumed following this recovery. Some patients also experience altered feelings of sensation, which should fade in time.

When Will I See Results?

With miraDry you won’t have to wait around to see the effects of treatment. Patients usually see positive effects almost immediately. Studies have found that the treatment has a 90% patient satisfaction rate.

Patient Stories Dr. Chang has an eye for symmetry and aesthetics. I went in for a consultation to have fillers under my eyes. Instead I was educated on my facial anatomy. I agreed to some fillers in my forehead and cheeks instead and could not be more pleased with the outcome.
