The miraDry® System uses microwave energy to eradicate the underarm sweat glands. Clinical Results indicate that the sweat glands that are targeted do not grow back after treatment.
In the axilla (underarm “armpit”) there are glands known as “eccrine” and “apocrine” glands. These are sweat and odor glands, respectively. The axilla has a very high concentration of eccrine and apocrine glands.
The miraDry® System focuses precise microwave energy to deliver temperatures in excess of 60°C throughout the entire region of target axilla tissue.
The focused energy is designed to target these glands specifically and is required for permanent destruction of the glands. It is the only FDA-cleared procedure for treating hyperhidrosis.
This results in significant and permanent reduction of underarm sweat and odor. Patients can expect an average of 82% reduction in underarm sweat according to clinical research.
