MiraDry Can Help Eliminate Underarm Sweat *and* Odor
miraDry is typically very effective for both reducing underarm sweat as well as underarm odor.
There are two main types of sweat glands, the watery sweat producing eccrine glands and the odor-related apocrine glands. miraDry is effective against both types of sweat glands. In a recent clinical study of 31 patients, 87% of the patients reported noticeable underarm odor before miraDry and only 26% nine months after treatment.
As it turns out, the elimination of underarm odor is one of the main reasons that many people in Japan are turning to miraDry.
If you are bothered by underarm sweat and/or odor, miraDry can be an excellent treatment option.

Miradry and Sweat Odor
You'll be happy to know that Miradry is very effective in eliminating body odor in the axillary area. This is because if there is little or no sweating, the bacteria on the skin don't have a substrate to break down into malodorous products. Even if you don't think you are sweating excessively, any sweat at all has the potential to create a bad scent. Deodorant only masks the odor, but Miradry can prevent it completely!

MiraDry Treats Odor, Sweat and Hair
The miraDry procedure is an effective treatment to reduce sweating, odor and reduce hair in the underarm area. In our experience most patients stop wearing antiperspirants and many no longer wear deodorants as well. The added benefit of reduced hair also means less shaving. We recommend a series of two treatments for the most effective results, but our patients report a dramatic difference with just one treatment and many feel the do not need a second.
MiraDry Reduces Underarm and Sweating Odor
Apocrine glands are also sweat glands, but they are different - they are located in the underarms and genital area. They produce a thicker fluid which comes in contact with the bacteria on the skin's surface and this causes the body odor.
Most patients do not need antiperspirant or deodorant after just one MiraDry treatment. Some patients need two treatments to get the desired dryness and odor reduction.

Miradry correct Odor as well as Sweat problems
Yes it can..
Eccrine glands produce sweat, this can lead to a rich pool of nutrients for bacteria to breed, in turn worsening odour and smell. Apocrine glands also contribute to bromohidrosis- these glands are also reduced with miraDry.
Sometime a combination of BOTOX, miraDry, diet and deodorants gives the best outcomes.
