miraDry is a non-invasive, FDA-approved device designed to eliminate underarm sweat and odor. It targets sweat glands using microwave energy eliminating them. Additionally, once destroyed these glands do not regenerate, meaning they do not grow back.
So why should you even consider a process like this for something that everyone experiences, to some degree? The fact is some people do experience excessive underarm sweat at a level that can impede their social and business relationships. This condition is called hyperhidrosis. When that happens, miraDry is an effective and safe solution.

If you sweat a lot, you may fear going into social situations that might reveal your condition. This could include anything from crowded bars and backyard barbecues to networking events.
The appearance of hyperhidrosis can cause embarrassment for others as well as you and change how others perceive you as a person. On top of that, strong emotions, spicy foods, and stress stimulate sweat, so if you’re nervous, your sweating will get even worse.

Some people even use dress shields, which are pads they place in the underarm area to absorb the sweat. There are electrical stimulation methods such as iontophoresis, which can be painful and require many sessions to reduce the sweating or you can get Botox injections, which aren’t permanent.
Surgery is also an option. But miraDry is painless after you’ve been numbed, and requires just one, possibly two sessions of 1.5 hours or less, for up to 90 percent effectiveness. It’s also permanent.
