What is miraDry®?
miraDry® is a permanent solution to hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and body odor caused by excessive sweating. This treatment can eliminate the need to use chemicals on the body, like antiperspirants and deodorants. As little as one treatment can give you permanent results, unlike Botox® or other temporary treatments.
How Much Does miraDry® Cost in Glastonbury, CT?
Because your treatment or number of treatments will vary depending on your body and the extent of your hyperhidrosis, the cost of miraDry® will widely vary. Dr. Beam and his staff will discuss your treatment plan and the cost of your treatment plan with you during your consultation. If you are concerned about paying for your procedure, consider one of the financing options offered by Dr. Beam.
How is miraDry® Performed?
Because miraDry® is a non-invasive procedure, it is performed in-office. A local anesthetic is injected into the treatment area to numb it prior to using the device. Then, Dr. Beam and our team of skilled nurse practitioners place the device directly on the skin. You may feel a light suction and cooling sensation as your skin adheres to the device. Thermal energy is delivered through the device to heat and eliminate the sweat and odor glands in the underarm. Once the glands are eliminated, they do not grow back.
What Results Can I Expect From miraDry®?
Once you are done with your miraDry® treatment, you will notice up to an 80 percent reduction of underarm sweat and underarm odor. The eliminated sweat and odor glands will never grow back, causing a permanent solution to your hyperhidrosis. This will most likely eliminate the need to use harsh chemicals such as antiperspirants and deodorants on the body. Seventy percent of patients have also seen a reduction in the growth of underarm hair after just one treatment.
What is the Recovery From miraDry® Like?
Because this is a non-invasive procedure, recovery time is minimal. The treated area will remain numb for the duration of the local anesthesia. After, it is normal to feel some tenderness, bruising or swelling. You will be able to return to your normal daily activities in as little as one day.
