Is One MiraDry Treatment Enough?

If you sweat excessively, you may have already read up about the miraDry treatment. It effectively destroys the sweat and odor glands from your underarms so that you can be saved from the embarrassment of constant sweating. Even though the procedure has been around for several years, one question has remained. Can you achieve lasting results with just one treatment or do you require a second treatment to ensure your results are permanent?

What is miraDry?

It is a non-invasive treatment that has been cleared by the FDA to deal with underarm sweat. During the treatment, you will remain in a reclined position for about an hour. Since your underarms are numbed before the procedure, you will not feel anything during your procedure. Once your treatment is over, you may feel some soreness, swelling, numbness or tingling. These sensations resolve within a few days or weeks.

How many treatments will it take?

Most patients see results within one treatment of miraDry. Almost 80 to 85 percent of the sweat glands are killed with the first treatment, it is not really a permanent sweat reduction. There might be a slight sweating which is noticeable after the first treatment, but this will not be enough to require an antiperspirant. Only about 10 percent patients ask for a second treatment to get completely dry.

However, just like any other cosmetic treatment, your doctor will determine the best treatment plan for you so that you can achieve your desired results.

Is there a downtime with the procedure?

The downtime from miraDry can be minimal to none. Most patients return to their normal routine immediately. You must wait a few days before resuming exercise and any vigorous activities. There might be some discomfort in your armpits for some days after the treatment.

Don’t I need my sweat glands?

Humans have close to 2 million sweat glands throughout the body and only about 2 percent of these are in your armpits. You can certainly live without these! After your treatment, you should enjoy the benefits of dry armpits and you will continue to sweat normally elsewhere on your body.
