Want to stop telegraphing your nerves on that special date? Want to present your breakthrough idea to your boss without showing wet marks? MiraDry can help anyone feel more confident without bothersome underarm sweat, even after a long and tiring day. Kalia Dermatology and Laser Center in Los Gatos, California, offers this long-lasting solution for the reduction of underarm sweat to patients from the San Francisco Bay area.
The MiraDry procedure uses the only non-invasive technology that is FDA cleared and clinically proven to dramatically reduce underarm sweat without the use of chemicals, toxins or surgery. Because the sweat glands do not regenerate after the MiraDry treatment, the results are long-lasting. You can expect a reduction in sweating immediately after the procedure, with very little or no downtime.
The state-of-the-art MiraDry procedure is FDA-cleared to target underarm sweat and odor glands through the use of proprietary MiraWave energy. Once these glands are affected, they can’t grow back, making underarm sweat and odor relief a thing of the past.
MiraDry is for anyone who wants to feel more confident without the bothersome issues of underarm sweat. Feeling confident that your favorite silk blouse won’t show wet marks, giving away that you might be anxious or uncomfortable or just too warm on that special date. Being confident standing in front of the big boss—ready to present your breakthrough idea knowing your shirt won’t show wet marks when you take off your suit jacket. Feeling clean, confident even after a long and tiring day is a benefit of MiraDry.
MiraDry is for the average, everyday person right off the street. The only patients who shouldn’t use MiraDry are pregnant women. If you’re someone with insecurities about sweating and the undesirable odors that causes, Kalia physicians highly recommend undergoing a MiraDry treatment. However, it’s also useful for someone with hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes excessive and unwarranted sweating.
All around, this treatment is perfect for patients who want to feel more confident under stressful situations and experience less embarrassment due to perspiration.
The MiraDry ® system uses energy that targets and destroys the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are destroyed they do not grow back—so that means your treatment is permanent and lasts forever.
No. You have approximately two million sweat glands throughout your body, and your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. Once your MiraDry treatment is complete, you’ll experience the rewards of having dry underarms, and the rest of your body will continue to perspire normally.
First they will numb the area with a local anesthetic before performing the MiraDry treatment to ensure that you’re as comfortable as possible. The entire procedure lasts for about an hour. Afterward, you may experience mild swelling, soreness, tingling, or numbness in the treated area; these sensations typically subside within a few days.
You can expect a reduction in sweating immediately after the procedure, with very little or no downtime.
