What Will My Skin Feel Like After miraDry® Treatment?

Excessive underarm sweating is a problem that affects millions of people worldwide. It is a condition characterized by overactive sweat glands that produce more sweat than the body needs. This condition is also called hyperhidrosis and can lead to social discomfort and practical difficulties such as clothing stains. Thankfully, at Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic in Live Oak and San Antonio, TX, Dr. Jean-Denis Boucher offers an effective hyperhidrosis treatment option, miraDry.

What is miraDry?

miraDry is an innovative treatment option for those suffering from excessive underarm sweating. It uses electromagnetic energy to remove sweat glands in the underarm area. It's a noninvasive procedure that involves no incisions or cuts. The device targets and destroys sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Since these glands do not regenerate, the results are often long-lasting.

During miraDry treatment, local anesthesia is applied to the underarm area to ensure comfort. Then, the handheld miraDry device is held against your skin, emitting electromagnetic energy to the sweat and odor glands. The treatment session can take up to an hour, and most patients experience minimal discomfort.

The miraDry recovery process

After the miraDry procedure, you might experience some localized soreness or swelling, which is normal and should subside within a few weeks. Some patients also report altered sensations in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which should gradually disappear. During your miraDry recovery, it's crucial to keep the area clean and avoid strenuous activities that might cause excessive sweating or friction in the underarms for approximately a week.

The aftereffects of miraDry

So, what will your skin feel like after miraDry treatment? Your underarms will likely feel different — in a good way. Many patients report a dramatic reduction in underarm sweat after treatment. Since miraDry effectively removes the sweat glands in the underarm area, you can say goodbye to the concerns of excessive underarm sweating. It can give you the freedom to wear what you want without worrying about underarm stains or wet spots, and help you regain your confidence.
