Forget your deodorant, leave the razor on the bathroom shelf and enjoy the summer in style with a simple hour-long treatment that can last a lifetime.
A revolutionary non-surgical treatment, MiraDry is proven to permanently reduce underarm sweat and hair growth in just one hour. You’ll feel immediate results in as little as one treatment.
Safe and effective, over 100,000 patients worldwide have undergone an FDA-approved miraDry treatment.
How does MiraDry work?
MiraDry uses thermal electromagnetic energy to create heat in the underarm area where sweat glands and hair glands reside. The energy emitted by the specialist handpiece safely eliminates the eccrine and apocrine glands, reducing and often eliminating both hair and sweat in one single treatment.
There are three steps to the procedure:
- Your underarm area is numbed with local anesthesia
- The MiraDry hand piece is placed on the underarm and a vacuum suction from the hand piece brings the sweat glands closer to the surface to protect deeper tissue. Non-invasive electromagnetic energy is delivered through the skin which penetrates the sweat glands
- A cooling system protects the skin and keeps the heat energy at the targeted area of the sweat glands during treatment. The glands are heated and then eliminated.
Is MiraDry safe?
MiraDry is perfectly safe, as your body does not solely rely on your underarm sweat glands to cool itself. You have between 2- 4 million sweat glands in your body, with only around 2% in the underarm area. Eliminating the sweat glands in this area does not reduce your body’s ability to cool itself through sweat, as you will continue to be able to sweat in other areas of your body.
Does MiraDry hurt?
Local anaesthetic is administered to the underarm area prior to treatment to reduce any discomfort. You may feel pressure or a light pulling or tugging sensation on your skin during the procedure, with a mild warmth.
Patients have describe the discomfort as a maximum of 2 out of 10.
Following a treatment mild pain relief and ice packs are advised to reduce any swelling.
What results can I expect from MiraDry?
You can expect immediate and lasting results from MiraDry. Once the sweat and hair glands have been treated, the results are permanent.
On average, patients can expect around 80% sweat reduction and a 70% reduction in underarm hair, although individual patient results may vary.
How many treatments will I need?
You can see noticeable results in as little as one non-invasive treatment, with many patients only requiring one single procedure. As with any treatment, we will determine the best course of treatment to achieve your desired results.
How long does a MiraDry procedure take?
A MiraDry treatment will usually take an hour to an hour and a half.
Are there any side effects or or downtime?
It is normal to experience swelling, numbness, bruising and sensitivity in the area for several days after a MiraDry treatment.
You should be able to continue with your day immediately after the procedure, but you must avoid exercise for 72 hours after treatment.
How much does MiraDry cost?
A single MiraDry treatment costs from £1760.
