Preliminary study results show effects lasting for two years. However, results should be permanent, as sweat glands do not regenerate.
How Long Will MiraDry Last?

Long lasting results after miraDry treatments
MiraDry is the only FDA-approved procedure that offers long-lasting results for excessive sweating. Studies demonstrate that results last up to 2 years and are likely permanent as sweat glands do not regenerate. Botox injections also work to help decrease sweating, but results are most temporary as injections need to be repeated every 4-6 months with Botox effects wearing off near the end of that time frame.
MiraDry is durable
miraDry is a durable procedure but remember that outcome studies to date last 2 years, not longer. There is no reason why you should start sweating again after 2 years. The technology behind miraDry for excessive underarm sweating is FDA approved.

The preliminary studies showed that MiraDry results lasted 2 years however, since sweat glands can not regenerate themselves, the results should be permanent.

Reduction in sweating from miraDry should be long-lasting
miraDry works by physically disrupting your sweat glands. The sweat glands, which originate in the fat, no longer have a communication with the surface of the skin. Therefore, results should be very long-lasting (permanent).
MiraDry - How long does it last
This a great question. Botox for the armpits usually lasts between 4-6 months. I have traditionally performed surgery to physically remove the sweat glands using a small incision in the axilla and shaving off the sweat glands, thereby dramatically reducing the ability to sweat in the armpits. MiraDry uses microwave technology to destroy the sweat glands as well. Thus this is a long-term solution for sweaty armpits. Hope this helps.
Most likely forever
The MiraDry system utilizes microwave energy to specifically heat the region of skin containing sweat glands to the point of causing thermolysis of the glands.
Since sweat glands do not grow back or regenerate, there is a dramatic and lasting reduction of sweat. After 2 treatments results should be permanent
The effective of Miradry should be long lasting because histologic studies have shown that the sweat glands in those areas are effectively eliminated.
Miradry and Retrograde suction curettage for underarm and axillary hyperhidrosis
The initial studies on Miradry longevity are about two years. In my practice, I perform retrograde suction curretage of the axillary sweat glands which has demonstrated long term efficacy. The procedure is well tolerated and has a quick recovery.
