Does miraDry work?

What is miraDry? miraDry is one of the most exciting and effective non-surgical devices available today. Its purpose is to eradicate underarm sweat and odor glands.

The revolutionary device utilizes energy to zap the glands and destroy them, all in an office setting without a need for surgery. With one to two treatments of our miraDry in Austin, patients can get back to their life and never have to worry about excessive underarm sweat again! Our Austin plastic surgeon heavily vets non-surgical devices before purchasing and offering to his patients. If the technology doesn’t work and won’t achieve significant results, Dr. Whitfield wouldn’t suggest it to his patients. miraDry is extremely effective and offers a truly life-changing procedure.

What can I expect during a miraDry treatment?

During your miraDry treatment, miraDry’s noninvasive microwave technology targets the region of your body where you have overactive sweat glands or unwanted hair. This technology targets the glands that produce odor and hair, halting their production. The procedure itself takes about an hour and patients can resume normal function immediately after the procedure in most cases.

Is miraDry safe?

miraDry is an FDA-approved non-invasive treatment to safely reduce your body’s ability to excessively produce sweat. Using microwave technology, miraDry delivers heat waves as hot as 140 degrees Fahrenheit below the skin. The cooling device protects the upper layer of skin, keeping it from burning.

How long will recovery take after a miraDry treatment?

Following the procedure, the underarm area will be swollen for up to two days. Stinging sensations are possible once the local anesthesia wears off; patients should use ice packs to help with both. The swelling will mostly subside within 48 hours but will take about a week to go away completely. After treatment, patients can expect immediate results. The odor and sweat glands have been destroyed and are no longer operational. Patients can return to daily activity and exercise as soon as they’re comfortable post-swelling.

How many treatments will I need?

You can see results in your first treatment. For ideal results, two of our miraDry in Austin treatments are usually necessary.

Is miraDry covered by insurance?

Typically, a miraDry treatment is not covered by insurance, but it is important to verify it with your provider. You may be able to use your HSA/FSA funds toward miraDry.

How long does one treatment take?

Depending on the patient, treatment time can vary, but generally, your appointment will last about one hour.
