By achieving dryness, MiraDry treatment can help you feel the relief of stopping excessive underarm sweating.
MiraDry is a non-invasive, TGA-approved treatment for excessive underarm sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis. The treatment uses thermal energy to target and destroy the sweat glands in the underarm area, resulting in a significant reduction of sweat production. MiraDry treatment is a safe and effective way to reduce sweating and improve quality of life.
Every patient is seen for a thorough consultation to ensure suitability with our Vascular Surgeon Dr Roger Bell, the treatment is then performed by our gentle and expereinced practice nurse. We have performed over 1000 procedures.
What is the procedure for receiving miraDry treatment?
The procedure for miraDry treatment typically begins with the patient’s underarm area being numbed using a local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort during the procedure. The miraDry device is positioned over the patient’s underarm and uses microwave energy to heat and destroy the sweat glands in this area. This process is known as thermolysis, which heats the sweat glands, but the skin in this area remains cool.
The procedure is quick and efficient, only taking about one hour to fully complete. For optimal results, it is recommended to attend two sessions of miraDry treatment.
How long does full recovery take after miraDry?
After the miraDry procedure, it is completely normal for the patient to experience some swelling, tenderness, and numbness in the underarm area. These side effects are temporary and can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
You may be able to return to your normal activities easily, however, it is likely that your doctor may advise you to avoid any strenuous activity for a day or two.
What are the benefits of getting miraDry?
There are many reasons why someone who experiences excessive sweating in their armpits would opt for miraDry treatment. Firstly, it helps with the significant reduction in underarm sweating since it destroys sweat glands and therefore eliminates sweat production. The treatment also produces long-lasting results. The results of miraDry are typically permanent since sweat glands cannot regenerate. MiraDry is a non-invasive treatment, meaning it does not involve any incisions or surgical intervention to produce its results. The miraDry treatment also has minimal side effects, with the most common being temporary swelling, tenderness, and numbing of the underarm area.
Excessive sweating can greatly affect a person’s quality of life, by causing embarrassment, discomfort, and staining of clothes. By reducing excessive sweating, miraDry can greatly improve a person’s confidence and quality of life. The procedure is also quick as it only takes about an hour.
Not only does miraDry significantly reduce excessive sweating, but by doing so, allows the patient to feel confident, dry, and fresh, and free of the worry of sweaty clothes and embarrassment.
