Excessive underarm sweating may not seem like a life-threatening medical condition, but it can affect a person in many ways, especially during social situations. Here at Procerus Skin Care, Dr. Kathleen Gilmore has provided an innovative treatment that can effectively address this problem.

What Is The miraDry Treatment?

Dr. Gilmore introduces an FDA-approved aesthetic solution to underarm sweating: the miraDry treatment. It is a non-invasive, safe approach to removing the underarm glands that cause sweat and odor in the area. Many of our patients in Ann Arbor, Michigan have gained satisfying results from this quick and easy in-office procedure, providing a permanent answer to your underarm sweating problems. Sweat glands are known to have no use under the armpits, making it more convenient to have them removed through miraDry. However, patients will still be able to sweat elsewhere.

What Can I Expect From A miraDry Procedure?

A lot of Dr. Gilmore’s patients have found comfort throughout the procedure, as it is painless with minimal to no downtime. Before the start of the treatment, local anesthesia is applied to the underarm area to increase patient comfort during the procedure. In fact, most patients report minimal pain only during the administration of anesthetic injections. The miraDry treatment does not require any cuts or incisions. A specialized handpiece will be placed in multiple areas in each underarm. Normally, a miraDry treatment will take up to an hour and can be done in a single doctor’s appointment.

How Does It Work?

The procedure uses the miraWave technology, which provides the ideal wavelength that eliminates sweat and odor glands in the armpit. This painless procedure is non-invasive, producing a cooling effect for increased comfort while targeting and destroying the affected glands.

What Can I Expect From miraDry Results?

Before anything else, an initial consultation with your physician is a must. It is during this time that your healthcare provider will determine the amount of sweat reduction possible in a miraDry session, taking your preference into consideration. As with any other aesthetic treatment, specific results may vary from patient to patient, yet the average sweat reduction in miraDry patients reach up to 82%.

Most patients who have undergone the procedure experience only minimal downtime, which means they can easily return to their daily activities right after the procedure. However, exercise may have to be resumed only after several days from the day of treatment. Side effects may include numbness, bruising, swelling and increased sensitivity in the area for several days after treatment. Ice and ibuprofen are advised to help alleviate swelling and sensitivity after treatment.
