What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis refers to excessive sweating not necessarily related to exertion or body temperature. The condition can affect the entire body. It can also be localized to one area. Millions of adults suffer from “axillary hyperhidrosis” – excessive underarm sweating. While scientists believe hyperhidrosis has a genetic element, the exact cause is unknown. Excessive sweating does not present a threat to physical health. However, people who struggle with hyperhidrosis often find the condition embarrassing and stress-inducing.
How Does miraDry Work?
miraDry reduces excessive sweating by destroying the sweat and odor glands in the armpit. During treatment, precisely controlled microwave energy is focused on the dermal-fat interface.¹ This is the region of skin where sweat glands are located. The thermal energy heats up the sweat gland, effectively destroying it.²
Once sweat glands are destroyed, they do not grow back. This leads to the long-term reduction of excessive sweating.¹
In addition to decreasing sweat volume, miraDry destroys the glands that cause odor (apocrine glands) and hair follicles.²
miraDry Reviews in Scientific Literature
Numerous studies have published their clinical miraDry reviews in scientific literature. The consensus finding miraDry to be safe and very effective at eliminating excessive underarm sweating.¹
One study published in Dermatological Surgery followed up with patients one year after their miraDry treatment. The data reported a reduction in excessive swelling in 90% of participants. Similarly, patient satisfaction was also rated at 90%. The average reduction in sweat among participants was 82%. This led the researchers to conclude:
“The miraDry system is a novel microwave energy device that can be used to treat axillary hyperhidrosis through selective heating of the lower layer of skin, where the eccrine and apocrine glands are located. Patient satisfaction with the procedure is high, and adverse events are typically transient and well-tolerated. This system provides a durable, noninvasive alternative therapeutic modality for patients with this common and frustrating problem.”¹
As with any cosmetic procedure, individual experiences may vary.* However, many patients see an immediate reduction in underarm sweat after a single treatment. Additional treatments may be performed to achieve optimal results.
