When it comes to treating excessive underarm sweating:
1. miraDry is equally effective as Botox (both reduce excessive underarm sweating by 70-80%). Both miraDry and Botox are safe and non-to-minimally invasive procedures. miraDry does cause some bruising, swelling, and temporary numbness of the underarms that Botox does not.
2. The results from miraDry are much longer lasting and possibly permanent
3. miraDry is a much less costly long term solution for treating excessive underarm sweat.
Based on these factors, miraDry is generally considered a superior treatment to Botox for the treatment of excessive underarm sweating.
miraDry has been a godsend for many of my hyperhidrotic patients.
