Do you shower frequently, and always keep a fresh shirt handy? Do you select clothing based on how obviously sweat rings will appear? Has excessive underarm sweating and odor impacted your career, social life, and fitness? Then miraDry could be the solution you’ve dreamed about. Using this noninvasive, drug-free treatment, Dr. Ariel Ostad has helped many patients in NYC overcome underarm hyperhidrosis.
Your body has two to four million sweat glands. Most are eccrine glands, which excrete clear, odorless perspiration to regulate body temperature through evaporation. Apocrine glands produce a thicker fluid that emits an unpleasant odor when it meets bacteria that live on skin. Eccrine glands are primarily found on the face, hands, and feet. Apocrine glands are in the genital region. Unfortunately, underarms have both sweat and odor glands. For those with hyperhidrosis, the condition is extreme.
MiraDry is designed specifically for underarm hyperhidrosis. Carefully controlled microwave energy targets moisture in sweat and odor glands, destroying them without harm to skin or other organs.
Simply lie back and relax for the procedure, which takes about an hour:
Improvement is immediate! Often just one miraDry treatment provides up to 82 percent reduction in sweating. (In some persistent cases, a follow-up treatment is beneficial.) Since the body does not make new sweat glands, once they are destroyed, results are permanent. Many people stop using anti-perspirant or deodorant. As an added benefit, treatment reduces underarm hair. The FDA-cleared procedure is very safe. Because your body has a multitude of other sweat glands, miraDry has no negative impact on healthy cooling.
With more than 55,000 procedures performed globally, miraDry is changing quality of life for individuals with excessive underarm sweating.
