How to Reduce Underarm Sweat With miraDry®

October 15, 2020Hyperhidrosis Treatment


Excessive underarm sweat, known as hyperhidrosis, does not often respond to antiperspirants. This condition, which impacts an estimated 7.8 million people, can create terrible discomfort, both physically and emotionally, impacting clothing choices, self-confidence, and self-esteem.

There are many treatments for hyperhidrosis. Certain medications, creams, and injections – including BOTOX® – may be effective at reducing sweat production, but these treatments are not 100% reliable. Surgical treatments such as sweat gland removal can be used to treat excessive sweating as well, but these are invasive and come with surgical risks.

At Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, we are pleased to offer miraDry® for the treatment of hyperhidrosis. Non-surgical and non-invasive, this option targets and destroys sweat glands, permanently reducing the amount of sweat you produce. In fact, clinical studies have found that most patients experience an immediate and substantial reduction in sweat production after just one treatment. In our patients, we notice anywhere from a 50 to 100% reduction in sweating and odor after one treatment. The best thing about miraDry is that it is not only for patients with hyperhidrosis. Anyone with any amount of sweat or odor can be a candidate for treatment, including those who are looking to eliminate the use of underarm chemicals found in antiperspirants and deodorants.

How Does miraDry® Work?

miraDry® uses electromagnetic energy to heat and eliminate sweat glands. During treatment, the handheld applicator gently vacuums underarm skin to bring the sweat glands closer to the surface. This process also helps protect surrounding skin and tissue from damage. Comfort is further protected by a cooling system that focuses heat on the sweat glands but keeps skin cool. At Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, we strive to create great results while keeping our patients as comfortable as possible. Prior to each miraDry treatment, we gently numb the area with an injectable anesthetic.

While the process is non-invasive, some swelling or bruising is possible following treatment. Proper aftercare will help address these issues. Tenderness in the underarms is possible for one to two weeks. We will provide you with information on reducing discomfort and speeding recovery during your time in our care.

Permanent Results After Just One Treatment

Sweat gland elimination with miraDry® is permanent. Once sweat glands are destroyed, they will not grow back. Most patients experience results after a single treatment, though it may take more than one to reach your goals. The best way to find out is through a one-on-one consultation at our Houston office.

This patient felt uncomfortable with the excess skin in her tummy and wanted to cinch her waistline. She underwent a Mini Tummy Tuck with Lipo360 to achieve her desired look! 

Considering a mini tummy tuck? This procedure involves a shorter incision, focusing on excess skin or laxity in the lower abdomen. Don't worry, your belly button remains untouched! But remember, it's not a one-size-fits-all solution – it's tailored to specific patients with unique needs.
