Treatments for Hyperhidrosis

Thank you for your question JujuBeats143. Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common condition that affects 1.3 million people in the United States. Botox works well to treat hyperhidrosis. It can be used on the underarms, palms, or soles. People enjoy their results for 6-12 months, which is longer than when Botox is used on the face (3-4 months). The more treatments a person gets, the longer it lasts.
Miradry is an alternate treatment using microwave energy that is more permanent and requires one to two treatments. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

Remove sweaty armpits with MiraDry

Sweat and odor glands under the arms are removed safely with MiraDry® proprietary electromagnetic technology.

MiraDry® is the only FDA cleared aesthetic treatment for the permanent elimination of underarm sweat and odor glands. Considered a one-to- two treatment protocol, Miradry is a quick, in-office treatment providing immediate and permanent sweat and odor elimination with minimal to no downtime. Most patients have 50% reduction in sweat and odor after the first treatment, and another 30% reduction in a 2nd treatment, which can be performed 1-2 months later.     In our practice, treatments will always be individually customized.

MiraDry is great for underarm sweating

In the recent past, we used to do suction curettage, where sweat glands were removed. 

miraDry is a better procedure where underarm sweat glands are destroyed with microwave energy.

MiraDry destroys sweat glands

MiraDry is not a surgical procedure, so it does not "remove" the glands. It is an external treatment that destroys the sweat and odor glands of the axilla by microwave. The treatment is permanent. Most patients need only one treatment although some will need two treatments.

MiraDry Targets Sweat Glands

MiraDry is an economical system that uses energy to target and destroy the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are destroyed they do not grow back.  Most patients require 1-2 treatments, with  a minimum of 3 months between treatments.  Best wishes, Dr. Aldo:-)

How does Miradry work

Miradry utilizes a very focused pulse of microwave energy to destroy sweat glands in the underarm area.  Our patients have been extremely satisfied with results from the treatment.  Unlike Botox that only lasts a few months, Miradry is a permanent solution.
