miraDry for Excessive Sweating Launches at Karidis

miraDry for Excessive Sweating Launches at Karidis image
31st May 2016

We’re delighted to launch miraDry at Karidis clinic London - a revolutionary treatment for long-lasting reduction of underarm sweat. More than 40,000 people have been treated with miraDry since its launch in 2011 and now it’s available at Karidis London. If you suffer from excessive sweating or simply want to live life without sweat then book a free consultation now to find out more.


What is miraDry?

miraDry is a clinically proven, non-invasive procedure recommended by industry professionals and FDA-approved as a safe, effective and permanent treatment for managing sweat. miraDry uses electromagnetic energy which is delivered to the skin using a specially designed hand piece.

The energy is carefully targeted to the area where sweat glands are found and eliminates them. Sweat glands don’t grow back, so the procedure gives a long-lasting reduction in sweat.

If you feel underarm sweating is an inconvenience to you, consider miraDry's advantages:

• The procedure is safe. miraDry has been through clinical trials and is the first and only device cleared for underarm sweating by the US Food and Drug Administration.

• Since 2011 over 40,000 people have been treated worldwide, so experience of the treatment is extensive.

• The procedure is quick with little to no downtime after treatment. 

• The reduction in sweating is immediate.

• Procedure results are long-lasting. Only one or two treatments are required.


Who is miraDry for?

miraDry is safe to use on everyone. If you want to stop worrying about underarm sweat and want to stop feeling fearful or embarrassed by sweat then this treatment will give you one less thing to worry about.

It is the only non-surgical solution clinically proven to reduce underarm sweat and odour, compared to Botox for excessive sweating which is only a temporary solution and requires top up every four to six months. 

miraDry is for EVERYONE who…

  • is inconvenienced by underarm sweat
  • suffers from the condition of excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis (read more about hyperhidrosis here)
  • is tired of underarm stains and lingering odour in clothing
  • wants to be rid of the toxins in deodorants
  • is tired of feeling unclean at the end of the day
  • suffers from rashes when using antiperspirant
  • wants to be liberated from underarm sweat forever


How does miraDry work?

miraDry targets two key glands with miraWave™ electromagnetic energy for optimum results.

The eccrine glands – these are located all over the body and secrete an odourless, clear fluid that helps the body control its temperature.

The apocrine glands - located in the armpits and genitals, these produce a thick fluid which produces body odour when it comes into contact with bacteria on the skin’s surface.

miraWave energy is delivered through a handpiece to the targeted area where these two glands reside, just below the surface. The handpiece continuously cools the area to keep surrounding tissue safe.


What are expected miraDry results?

Most people will experience a significant reduction in underarm sweat and odour after just one treatment with miraDry. In clinical studies, 90% of patients are satisfied with the results after one or two treatments.

Predicting exact final results for each person can be difficult however, as levels of sweat and odour vary enormously between individuals.

If you suffer from the condition of excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis, miraDry will help to reduce sweat production to more normal levels so that it no longer has a significant impact on their daily routine.

If you have normal levels of sweating, and use antiperspirant, the levels of sweat production after miraDry treatment will be similar or less than when wearing antiperspirant, which means you may no longer need to apply it on a daily basis.

In addition, you will notice some underarm hair loss (around 70% has been reported in clinical studies) – which is thought to be permanent. For most people, this is seen as an additional benefit of treatment.

Please note that miraDry will not result in a total cessation of sweating. Similar to laser hair removal, which results in around 80% permanent hair reduction, miraDry will cause, on average, an 80% permanent reduction in sweating from baseline levels.

If you do not get the results that you were hoping for after one treatment, a second treatment can be undertaken at any point in the future (but generally after three months has elapsed from your first treatment).

Thank you for working your magic and making me look years younger! Also a big thank you to your team for all their help and support. I love my new face!

Karolina is always a joy to work with - kind, considerate and very professional and creating an aura of trust. She makes the Ulthera treatment painless and that's not an easy task!

I have my Botox with Karolina. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and advises me on what would look good and not so good on my face. She is a person I can trust!

"I was very happy with my treatment experience. Mr Karidis , staff and facilities were excellent. I am very pleased with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Mr Karidis and his clinic."

"I am only three days into the recovery of my gynecomastia procedure, and already it has changed my life. I travelled from Cardiff to London to have this procedure and it was by far cheaper than having it done in my local area. Furthermore, Karidis' reputation exceeds expectations. I look forward to my follow up consultation so Karidis can see how he has changed my life. Communication from Karidis and his team - 5 star Professionalism - 5 star Results - 5 star."

For my first Velashape III treatment, Maxine made me feel really comfortable and explained exactly how the treatment would go and any after-effects I might have (I have had none). The process was smooth and painless and actually kind of relaxing. Most importantly, I can already see a MAJOR difference on the cellulite on my legs and butt. I am seriously impressed!

"My entire experience for an abdominoplasty and breast augmentation operation was faultless from a professional and caring team. I cannot recommend Mr Karidis enough from the consultation, in establishing what I wanted, to his skilled work. I am absolutely delighted with the results."

"A seven week recovery journey with a couple of little detours, but navigated with care by Mr Karidis, Suzi & Martina. Explanations, reassurance & advice given from first consultation, day of operation, day one post op. and at all subsequent clinic visits, along with a good dose of friendly chit chat & laughter, (Always a good medicine!). Thank you Mr Karidis & team. No regrets here."

Brilliant consultation... I was very impressed with my consultation with Mr Karidis. Mr Karidis made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions.

Outstanding in every way This is my second breast augmentation with Mr Karidis - my first experience was amazing as were the results! Second time around and once again my experience was faultless. The whole team are amazing from front of desk and Rose, to the lovely nurses pre and post-op! The after care given, which is also important, is second to none and I cannot recommend Mr Karidis enough. Thank you so much for all you have done for me and giving me back my confidence!
