Miradry is the only FDA approved device that permanently reduces underarm sweat and odor. You may have heard of botox for underarm sweating. While botox can work very well it is not permanent and only lasts 3-6 months. This means you will need 2-4 treatments per year. Therefore, the long term cumulative cost for botox is much higher than that for Miradry.Typically the cost of Miradry varies from one office to the next but on average, the cost is around 2,000$ for the first treatment. 80% of patients will need only one treatment. In 20 % cases a second treatment is needed. A secondary benefit of Miradry is thinning of the hair in the underarm, which is a great bonus! If a second treatment is needed the price is usually half of the first. The procedure takes about 1 hour to perform in the office. It is painless and there is no downtime. It is effective for anyone who has issues related to underarm sweat including odor, staining of garments etc. It also treats patients who have medically excessive sweating known as hyperhidrosis and odor (bromhidrosis).

What is MiraDry?
MiraDry uses microwave technology to eradicate the sweat glands in the underarm area. More than 50% of patients will need only one treatment which goes for about 1900.00 dollars in Scottsdale, AZ. Prices do vary from office to office and some patients will need a second treatment which usually is less then 1000.00 dollars. Best, Dr. ALDO
miraDry is a procedure that delivers microwave technology to permanently destroy the sweat and odor glands in your armpits. A patient can expect to get approximately 70-80% reductions of sweat and odor after one to two treatments. Our office charges $2000 for the first treatment and if a patient is desiring a second treatment it is $1000. I, personally am very happy with my results. I do not wear antiperspirant anymore since my treatment last month!
Hope this helps.
What is MiraDry
MiraDry is a device that deactivates sweat glands under the arms. It works by delivering thermal energy to the layer where they exist and uses cooling to protect the skin. Besides the oil glands in our skin there are three types of sweat glands: eccrine, apocrine, and holocrine. Eccrine glands produce sweat, apocrine glands produce odor, and holocrine glands produce ear wax. 2% of our eccrine glands are under the arms. You still sweat, just not under your arms. Apocrine glands produce odor. They only exist under the arms and in the groin. It's the gland that dogs sniff. People have tried to mask the odor for thousands of years. The cost varies depending upon the location.
