According to recent research, one in five adults are afflicted with excessive underarm sweat, with 75% of sufferers admitting to avoiding certain social situations due to their condition. Don’t suffer in silence, now there’s a solution that can help.

NEW! miraDry®

Lasting relief for Excessive Underarm Sweating
Stop excessive, unpredictable sweating and start living free from the debilitating condition known as hyperhidrosis. We are one of the first practices in the nation to offer new, miraDry treatments for excessive sweating under the arms. This life changing procedure is performed at our office and typically takes two noninvasive treatments.

miraDry advantages include:

  • FDA approved
  • Minimal to no downtime
  • Immediate and lasting results
  • A dramatic reduction in underarm sweat
  • Toxin-free relief

Before treatment, the underarms are numbed for patient comfort. During the miraDry procedure, precisely controlled electromagnetic energy is non-invasively delivered to eliminate the underarm sweat glands. Two, one hour procedures are typically recommended three months apart. The sweat glands don't grow back after treatment, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.

You should be able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure, and can typically resume exercise within several days. Localized soreness or swelling is normal, and usually clears within a few weeks. Some patients have temporary, short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.

After treatment, most patients report a dramatic reduction of underarm sweat – in a recent clinical study, the average reduction was 82%. Reduction in sweat is immediate with optimal results obtained after the second treatment. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person.
