MiraDry for the Hands Coming Soon
MiraDry for the hands is supposedly being investigated by the company and they are working on an applicator and the treatment protocols. It should be available by the end of 2016 or early 2017.
MiraDry for hands and feet
MiraDry has been shown to be safe and effective for axillary sweating only.
It has not been proven for hands and feet, and one should not assume safety in those regions. At this stage, we would not recommend its use for hands and feet.
MIRADRY IN NEW JERSEY - HANDS AND FEET?
At this time, Miradry is not safe for use in the hands and feet. Representatives from the company have informed our practice that this may come at a later date when the technology has been developed for that indication.
We routinely perform Miradry in our office and have been amazed at the permanent reduction / elimination of underarm sweating in just 1-2 treatments.
Best of luck!
Miradry gives lasting results to stop underarm sweating
it works using microwave technology to heat the area where the sweat glands reside. A vacuum action is applied to bring the skin away from the underlying structures. Currently that is the barrier to using it on the hands and feet. However, technology always improves over time, so we will see what will happen in the next few years. You can also try topical robinul/glycopyrrholate, or pills, or iontophoresis treatments at home to decrease the sweating. See your board certified dermatologist for options. Best to you, Dr. Jacob
Hands and Feet with miraDry?
miraDry is only FDA approved
for treating underarm sweating. miraDry is constantly improving technology to find other ways to satisfy patients and their concerns.
Treatment for Excessive Sweat for Hands and Feet
MiraDry is a new generation of technology that
is only available in medical practices for the permanent elimination of sweat
and odor glands for men and women bothered by their underarm sweat. It’s a
quick in-office treatment providing immediate and permanent results with
minimal to no downtime. miraDry® is FDA cleared for eliminating only underarm sweat at this time.

MiraDry : A Permanent Solution for Underarm Sweating
MiraDry® is FDA cleared for eliminating underarm
sweat. It is non-invasive, requires minimal to no downtime, with permanent
results. MiraDry uses electromagnetic energy which is proven to be the ideal
method for treating the sweat and odor glands in the underarm. It creates
targeted heat in the area where glands reside and safely eliminates them. At this time , the safety of treating hands and feet has not been studied.

Although miraDry is getting
a lot of attention recently, it has actually been around for a while. It has
been extensively studied and there is no cancer association. The FDA has
cleared it for safe use as well. The microwave energy only penetrates 4-5mm in
depth and heats up and destroys the sweat and odor glands. The energy does not
reach lymph nodes or deeper structures and it in non-ionizing radiation (the
safe kind, like radiowaves). I have had the procedure done myself and it has
truly been a gift. One and done for 80% of people! In the long term, much more
cost-effective than Botox which has to be repeated every 3-6 months. Let us
know if we can help in any way.
Botox can be a good
alternative while miradry is being approved for use in those areas. Botox
prevents the nerves from telling the sweat glands to produce sweat and odor.
Hope that helps!
Miradry for armpit sweating
I have co-authored a book on Miradry and continue to see very positive results with treatment. I am aware of several studies evaluating non-armpit treatment. Until the treatments are FDA approved, I would consider using Botox injections.
MiraDry and miraSmooth treatment outside of the underarms
At this point in time, miraDry and miraSmooth are only indicated for treatment in the axillae, or underarm area.
This is because the hand piece, specifically, and system in general were designed with the anatomy of this body area in mind. To adapt this to other parts of the body requires modifications to both, to make sure the energy is delivered safely and effectively. So it's not so much a question of whether or not the technology will work, but how to use it in such a way that it works safely.
