MiraDry is $3000, out-of-pocket

miraDry is $3000 for two treatments, spaced 3 months apart.  It is not covered by insurance.  Our practice offers financing through care credit.

MiraDry costs are offset by priceless results!

MiraDry is not covered by insurance despite working very well for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

Actual costs of the procedure have some variability, but usually ranges from $1950 to $2100 for the fist treatment. Packages area available, but 80% of patients only need one treatment. Second treatment can be purchased separately for $900 to $1050.

But! After your first treatment will you will receive permanent sweat and hair reduction. One treatment may reduce sweating by as much as 82%.

Each treatment lasts about 1 hour. There was minimal discomfort associated with numbing the 4-5 areas prior to administering tumescent anesthesia (large volume of dilute numbing solution that minimizes the number of shots you have to receive to be completely numbed for the procedure).

The cost of Miradry is....priceless

Hi, Miradry results in a permanent reduction in sweating from the underarms in a single visit. Because it is a permanent reduction in your underarm sweating, you will not have to worry about ruining clothes, embarrassing situations (such as important presentations at the office, or dates). You know these situations can cost you not only the price of the clothing but also cause you to hang back- costing you the promotion!  There is variability in pricing these days as the procedure has been modified in some offices. This modification is called "High Volume Anesthesia"or "HVA".  Because this modification makes the treatment very safe, we have found that we can increase the energy delivered and the results are quite good with a single treatment.  We have been doing Miradry with HVA for a about a year and the satisfaction rate is extremely high.   Typically the series of two treatments costs about $3000 and it is not covered by insurance. If you are able to find a physician that can offer you the high volume technique, you may be satisfied with one treatment. This is great because you only have to recover once.

Miradry is not currently covered by insurance plans.  Significant permanent results can be achieved in one treatment, although many patients elect for a second treatment session for optimal results.  The cost of the entire treatment ranges from 2000-3000 dollars.

Best of luck!

Miradry coverage by insurance company

MiraDry is indicated for treatment of resistant underarm excessive sweating. Unfortunately, this procedure is not covered by health insurance carriers given fact that there is no CPT code availabe to submit for billing. However, most of my patients with Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account have no difficulty using these pre-tax accounts to pay for medically necessary hyperhidrosis or bromohidrosis (distinct body odor). The out of pocket expense varies from $3000 to $4000 depending on your area but the key is to select a MiraDry physician who can maximize medical therapy for hyperhidrosis as well as one who is competent and committed to take care of uncommon but possible post-treatment complication.

Cost of MiraDry. Is it covered insurance

MiraDry is not covered by insurance.  It is a longer lasting compared to Botox for hyperhidrosis  so it is possible that in the future insurance carriers as  a better option because over the long haul it is less expensive than Botox.

it typically costs around $3000 for 2 treatments.  Individual treatments usually are sold for somewhere between $1500 and $2000 if the patient decides to get only a single treatment.

In some cases for severe hyperhidrosis patients have been known to go for a third treatment.

Best of luck

MiraDry Costs-Be sure to Ask whether one or two treatments are covered.

MiraDry costs vary from practice to practice but an average price in my area is around $3000 for two treatments. Ask if the price quoted covers two treatments.   Some practices may offer one treatment so the price quoted may be less but doesn't cover both treatments.  Most patients with true hyperhidrosis will need two treatments.  Some patients who are sweat-bothered but don't have hyperhidrosis will benefit from only one treatment.
