Why is miraSmooth only for armpits?

Doctor Answers 2

Only for underarms?

Thanks for this question. MiraDry and miraSmooth are only FDA approved for the underarm area. In this part o the anatomy, it has been proven to be safe and effective for hair reduction, sweat reduction, and smell reduction. For hair, it's nice that it works for all hair colors so light root folks can now be treated too. Best, Dr. ALDO :)

MiraDry and miraSmooth use is limited to the underarms


At the present time, given safety concerns, miraDry and miraSmooth is limited to the underarms. Studies are undergoing to evaluate miraDry for the hands and feet.
