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.
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.
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.
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.
You can see results in your first treatment. For ideal results, two of our miraDry in Austin treatments are usually necessary.
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.
Depending on the patient, treatment time can vary, but generally, your appointment will last about one hour.
Dr. Whitfield’s goal with all of his hyperhidrosis patients is to deliver a resolution to excessive sweating - and miraDry delivers. He will listen to your concerns to determine the best treatment plan for your needs to deliver results that exceed your expectations.More ABout Dr. Whitfield
