miraDry for men: stressing over sweat?

21st February 2019

Sweating your way through a gym session is just a sign of a good workout, but what happens when you find yourself drenched in sweat or conscious of body odour when you’re trying to make a good impression at work, when you’re out with friends or on a date?

Sweating is the body’s way of keeping our temperature regulated but excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is a very common condition that can be highly embarrassing and even debilitating to some sufferers. And, it can be a bigger problem for men – although men have slightly fewer sweat glands than women, they produce more fluid and will start to perspire quicker.



If you’ve been suffering from excessive sweating, then you’re probably aware of the limited options you have for treating this condition. Prescription anti-perspirants or armpit shields are available but often fail to work effectively at that crucial moment. In recent years, injections of botulinum toxin have been used to temporarily ‘freeze’ the sweat-producing glands, but this can prove a costly treatment option and surgery for excessive sweating is a serious undertaking that should only be considered as a very last resort.


A lack of effective treatment options is why we’re so excited to introduce miraDry to our clinic. Approved by the FDA for the treatment of underarm sweating, miraDry is a minimally invasive procedure that significantly reduces sweating and underarm odour, producing long-lasting results after just one or two treatments.


miraDry for men: FAQs

How does miraDry work?

miraDry works by delivering thermal energy into the sweat-producing glands in the underarm area, safely eliminating them. On average, patients can see an 82% reduction in underarm sweating after just one or two sessions.


Is miraDry painful?

Most patients say there is a small amount of discomfort, but it is easily managed by local anaesthetic injections and numbing cream. The device also has a cooling system which will protect the skin and ensure that the heat energy is directed into the sweat glands.  

Is there any downtime after miraDry treatment?

You may experience some redness, swelling and general soreness under the arm after your miraDry treatment but patients are usually able to resume their normal activities immediately afterwards.


Is miraDry safe?

A common concern is that permanently eliminating sweat glands could be dangerous – only 2% of the body’s sweat glands are located in the underarm area so your body will still be able to regulate temperature whatever strenuous activity you throw yourself into. You also won’t start to increase sweating elsewhere.


How soon will I see a reduction in excessive sweating?

You should notice an immediate decrease in excessive sweating and odour in the underarm area. Once the sweat glands are eliminated, they can’t grow back so results should be permanent.


If you’re looking for a non-invasive, long-lasting solution to excessive sweating then find out what miraDry can do for you. Call 0203 553 9126 to arrange a free consultation with one of our nurses.
