Treatment for Bromhidrosis in underarms and groin area

MiraDry for odor?
Yes, MiraDry is FDA cleared for the reduction of sweat and smell in the underarm area. The technology targets the sweat glands and is safe and effective in this part of the body.
I would not use this technology in the groin as it is not proven to be safe and effective in the region.

Miradry for Bromhidrosis
Hi and thank you for your question!
Miradry does work for bromhidrosis in the axillary area. We have had many patients come in for this concern. We have found that most patients need 2 treatments at level 5 to resolve odor issues and rarely a 3rd treatment. We do not currently do any treatments to help with the groin area. However, I highly recommend miraDry for treatment of the underarm area.
