MiraDry - Permanently Stops Underarm Sweating


What is Denver MiraDry?


MiraDry is the only non-invasive, FDA cleared aesthetic treatment that safely removes underarm sweat and odor glands. It's a quick in-office procedure that provides a permanent solution for underarm sweat.


Don't I need sweat glands?


Not in your armpits! You are born with approximately 2 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. With miraDry you will experience the many benefits of stopping sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat elsewhere.

What is the MiraDry procedure like? 


The majority of patients that go through the procedure experience very little pain and minimal down time.  Patients are treated with a local anesthesia to the underarm area prior to their treatment.  This will help patients feel more comfortable during the procedure and may be the only part of their MiraDry procedure where they experience some discomfort.  There are no incisions or cuts.  Treatments are customized to each underarm with multiple placements of the MiraDry hand piece.  The procedure lasts approximately 1 hour long.   

How does the MiraDry procedure work? 


MiraDry's proprietary mirawave technology is the ideal wavelength for eliminating sweat and odor glands in the underarm.  It non-invasively targets the area where the sweat glands reside and safely destroys them while simultaneously cooling your skin for added comfort. 

What results can I expect from MiraDry? 


You can expect immediate and lasting results- sweat glands don't come back after treatment.  The amount of sweat reduction you desire should be discussed with your miraDry Technician.  Recent clinical information confirms an average of 82% sweat reduction in most patients.  As with any aesthetic treatment results will vary by person.

How many MiraDry treatments will I need?


You can see results in as little as one MiraDry treatment at Happy Clinic Denver.  One MiraDry treatment typically eliminates 80% of underarm sweating and odor. The vast majority of patients are very happy with one Miradry treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, you and your technician will determine the best protocol for your expected results.


Is there any recovery post MiraDry treatment?

Most patients experience minimal downtime and return to regular activity immediately. The MiraDry treatment has a strong safety record.  Some localized soreness or swelling will occur, and typically clears within a few days.  Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears

Since local anesthesia is administered to the underarm prior to treatment, most patients experience little to no pain.  Patients rated treatment pain on an average score of 2 on a scale from 1-10 ( 1=no pain, 10= worst pain).
