Can miraDry be used for hyperhidrosis but in the armpit area like the back, the chest area, neck or scalp?

Please tell what is MiraDry and where are the areas it could be used on?

MiraDry what is it?

Greetings! MiraDry is a treatment that eradicates sweat glands using heat. It targets the water in the sweat glands and is safe for other tissues. It is only FDA approved for the underarms.

Warmest regards, Dr. ALDO

Miradry for other areas

For now, Miradry can only be used for the underarm area but hopefully in the future other areas can be treated as well. Like so many things with technology, Miradry too, will evolve and have advancements to accommodate other areas of concern. Stay tuned.

MiraDry for hyperhidrosis of the back, chest

Thank you for your question.

miraDry can be used off label for atypical areas such as the back.
