Cost comparison to Botox
MiraDry vs BOTOX in Australia
a Specialist. Typically patients are only out of pocket 400 plus dollars.
If Botox last 6-9 months (some patients it lasts upto 12 months), stick with BOTOX as miraDry typically cost over 3500 dollar. Hence it will take you 8 years to recover the treatment cost for miraDry. miraDry treatment, hopefully, over time will come down in price.
Flipside- if Botox only last 1-3 months, and you end up spending 1200 dollars per year- go the miraDry, because after year 3, you've broken even- PLUS the fact you don't have to anticipate sweating, nor have needles every few months.
This is my personal view point. Certainly if patients who have relief on Botox want miraDry, get it done. I think both treatments work equally well, its a matter of cost, and the psychology of when will sweating start.

Botox costs are variable around the country but miraDry is surely more cost effective but unfortunately, insurance companies don't cover the miraDry procedure but they may cover Botox injections for hyperhidrosis.
MiraDry, a New Treatment for Underarm Sweating, is Probably More Cost Effective Than Botox
For hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating), Botox costs about $1,000-$1,500 and typically lasts about six months.
MiraDry is a newer treatment for hyperhidrosis. MiraDry costs about $3,000 and typically lasts one to two years, possibly longer.
It is important to note that the costs of treatment may vary from geographic region to geographic region, and that treatment results may vary from person to person.

Miradry lasts a lifetime
What is great about miradry is that once the glands are destroyed by the treatment, then it will never grow back. Depending on the severity of your sweating, patients would need to get botox about 1 to 2 times a year every year to reduce sweating. At our office, we provide 2 treatments of miradry for $2900 and 1 treatment for $1600.
Best of luck,

You save money over time
Botox was the best option ot treat underarm sweating (hyperhydrosis ) before Miradry. However this is not cost effecting and you have to repeat it every 8-10 months. Costs add up quickly with Botox and although it is a few hundreds dollars cheaper per treatment you will very soon catch up. Miradry is a pernament solution

COST OF MIRADRY VERSUS BOTOX IN NEW JERSEY
However, as you may know, Miradry is essentially permanent after 1-2 sessions, whereas botox requires repeat visits for as long as underarm sweat reduction is desired (every 6-9 months, or more frequently).
Therefore, over the long term, Miradry provides for a far superior result and economic value.
Best of luck!
