I understand that MiraDry is suppose to last longer than Botox injections for sweating, but I'm wondering how much it should cost, roughly, for the two necessary treatments?

Cost comparison to Botox
MiraDry cost versus Botox
Botox costs are variable around the country but miraDry is surely more cost effective but unfortunately, insurance companies don't cover the miraDry procedure but they may cover Botox injections for hyperhidrosis.
MiraDry, a New Treatment for Underarm Sweating, is Probably More Cost Effective Than Botox
For hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating), Botox costs about $1,000-$1,500 and typically lasts about six months.
MiraDry is a newer treatment for hyperhidrosis. MiraDry costs about $3,000 and typically lasts one to two years, possibly longer.
It is important to note that the costs of treatment may vary from geographic region to geographic region, and that treatment results may vary from person to person.

However, as you may know, Miradry is essentially permanent after 1-2 sessions, whereas botox requires repeat visits for as long as underarm sweat reduction is desired (every 6-9 months, or more frequently).
Therefore, over the long term, Miradry provides for a far superior result and economic value.

MiraDry vs BOTOX in Australia
a Specialist. Typically patients are only out of pocket 400 plus dollars.
If Botox last 6-9 months (some patients it lasts upto 12 months), stick with BOTOX as miraDry typically cost over 3500 dollar. Hence it will take you 8 years to recover the treatment cost for miraDry. miraDry treatment, hopefully, over time will come down in price.
Flipside- if Botox only last 1-3 months, and you end up spending 1200 dollars per year- go the miraDry, because after year 3, you've broken even- PLUS the fact you don't have to anticipate sweating, nor have needles every few months.
This is my personal view point. Certainly if patients who have relief on Botox want miraDry, get it done. I think both treatments work equally well, its a matter of cost, and the psychology of when will sweating start.

MiraDry vs. Botox
MiraDry typically cost $3000 for a series of 2 treatments and is said to last 2+ years. However, since this technology destroys the sweat glands and they do not regenerate... it is most likely to be a permanent solution.
Botox on average costs $1100 every 6-9 months for the treatment of Hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis treatment - miraDry costs less than botox in the long run
Botox injections and miraDry are both out-of-pocket expenses. Botox will occasionally be approved through insurance with prior-authorization. We highly recommend miraDry if you're looking at long-term costs (and time). miraDry is typically $3,000 for two treatments for an average 86% reduction in sweating - the sweat glands are perminently destroyed and will not regenerate. Botox is typically $1,000 for injections but requires multiple injections each year. Once the botox wears off, you will begin sweating again.
