Underarm sweat can be embarrassing for anyone. But, when your sweat leaves stains on everything you wear, it can start taking over your everyday life. Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a common condition that most people don’t talk about. At Harold E. Beam, MD Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer sweat reduction treatments with miraDry®. Let’s go over everything you need to know about this cutting-edge treatment.
What is miraDry®?
miraDry® is an advanced non-surgical sweat reduction treatment that reduces excessive sweating caused by hyperhidrosis. Unlike outdated treatments like Botox® injections, miraDry® is a permanent solution to body odor and excessive sweating. This cutting-edge treatment allows patients to reduce their sweat by up to 82 percent and reduce body odor by up to 89 percent with just a few quick treatments.
How miraDry® Works
The secret behind miraDry® is its use of thermal energy to effectively heat up and eliminate the sweat glands under the arms. During your treatment, a stencil will be placed under your arm. Once the stencil is laid out properly, the miraDry® device will be placed over the stencil. A gentle suction will pull the skin up to the surface of the device and warm thermal energy will be applied to the entire area. This warmth will eliminate the sweat glands under the arm so they do not produce sweat again. The entire treatment process typically takes about an hour to complete and results can be seen immediately.

Is miraDry® Safe?
Yes, miraDry® is a completely safe and effective treatment for hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. While some patients get concerned about eliminating sweat glands under the arms, it’s important to remember that only about 2 percent of your sweat glands are found in your treated areas. After miraDry®, you can expect to feel the benefits of your treatment while leading a normal and healthy life.
