MiraDry is one of the most exciting and effective non-surgical devices available today. Its purpose is to eradicate underarm sweat and odor glands – permanently. The revolutionary device utilizes energy to zap the glands and destroy them, all in an office setting without a need for surgery. With 1-2 treatments, patients can get back to their life and never have to worry about deodorant or anti-perspirant ever again!
Dr. Robert Whitfield heavily vets non-surgical devices before purchasing and offering to his patients. If the technology doesn’t work and won’t achieve significant results, Dr. Whitfield wouldn’t suggest it to his patients. MiraDry is extremely effective and offers a truly life-changing procedure.
The treatment is an office-based procedure that doesn’t require surgery nor an operating room. The underarm is first numbed and a temporary treatment template is applied. Once numbing is complete, the MiraDry handpiece is placed directly onto the skin.
When the device is activated, the handpiece suctions the underarm skin closer to the surface to maximize results. The energy is then delivered to sweat and odor glands, destroying them. In order to make the procedure more comfortable, the handpiece provides a cooling element to protect your skin.
Following the procedure, the underarm area will be swollen for up to two days. Stinging sensations are possible once the local anesthesia wears off; patients are suggested to use ice packs to help with both. The swelling will mostly subside within 48 hours but will take about a week to go away completely. After treatment, patients can expect immediate results. The odor and sweat glands have been destroyed and are no longer operational. Patients can return to daily activity and exercise as soon as they’re comfortable post-swelling.
For ideal results, two MiraDry treatments are usually necessary.
