miraDry Q & A

What is miraDry?

MiraDry is an FDA-cleared treatment to quickly and permanently reduce underarm sweat, odor, and hair. The non-surgical technology uses thermal energy to minimize unwanted odor, sweat, and hair in as little as one treatment. 

The procedure is popular, with more than 100,000 miraDry treatments performed worldwide. Selah MediSpa offers the treatment in a quick office visit.

How does miraDry work?

The miraDry System uses thermal energy to target and eliminate the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are removed, they don’t return. The result is drier underarms with less hair and a fresher smell. 

Is it safe to eliminate sweat glands? 

Your body houses about 2-4 million sweat glands, and only about 2% are found in your underarms. Eliminating just a small percentage of sweat glands doesn’t inhibit your body’s ability to cool off. 

After your miraDry treatment, you’ll continue to sweat as you usually did in other areas of your body, but your underarms will sweat less.

What happens during miraDry?

Your Selah MediSpa provider numbs your underarm with a local anesthetic. They mark your underarm with a temporary tattoo to define your treatment area, then apply the handheld miraDry device directly to your skin. 

Once they activate the miraDry handpiece, you feel a slight suction as sweat and odor glands are pulled closer to your skin’s surface for maximum results. Thermal energy penetrates below your skin, destroying the glands. 

At the same time, a continuous stream of cooling protects your skin and keeps you comfortable. After your glands are eliminated, they don’t return. A typical treatment takes just one hour. 

What results can I expect?

You can expect immediate and lasting results, although results vary. Clinical results show miraDry reduces underarm sweating by 82% on average. As with any aesthetic treatment, patient results vary.

How many miraDry treatments do I need?

Your Selah MediSpa provider discusses a treatment plan to achieve your desired results. You may notice an improvement in just one session. 

Is there any pain or downtime with miraDry? 

Most patients describe miraDry treatment as painless. You may notice bruising, swelling, numbness, and sensitivity in your underarm area for several days after your treatment session. You typically need to skip exercising for several days.
