MiraDry in a non surgical procedure which leads to stop definitely sweat under armpits by using microwave energy. This medical device is approved by the Highest Health Autority of the USA : the FDA  (Food and Drug Administration)

Why using miraDry ?

Everybody is sweating, and it’s completly normal. However it could creat a discomfort :

Physical :

  • Unpleasant odor,
  • Sweat rings,
  • Stains on clothes.

Psychological :

  • The feeling of low self-esteem.

Obviously miraDry system can treat excess of sweat too (HYPERHIDROSIS). This medical device required in this case 2 sessions for being treated definitely unlike botox injections.

What does the science say  ?

Underarm sweat is produced by two types of sweat glands located just below the surface of the skin :

Ecrine glands :

  • which secrete a clear, odorless liquid
  • helping to lower the temperature of our body when it’s overheated,

Apocrine glands

  • which release a thicker liquid accompagnied by an odor

Our body is composed by more than 4 billion of sweat glands. miraDry will treat just 2% of the total of sweat glands. That’s why we are not changing the physiological sweat system of the body.


miraDry is an easy treatment because the procedure is done in 1 hour.
What goes on during the treatment is actually pretty simple. The miraDry system uses thermal energy thats targets and eliminates the sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are eliminated, they do not grow back.

Step 1

After your underarm is numbed, a temporary tatoo is applied to your underarm in order to treat each part with efficiently.

Step 2

The handpiece of miraDry is placed directly on your skin. You will feel slight suction as your skin and glands are brought closer to the surface for maximum results.

Step 3

Thermal energy is delivered and the sweat and odor glands are eliminated. All the while, the sytem is cooling to protect your skin and maximize your comfort.

One session is required if the secretion of sweat glands is low, 2 sessions for the hyperhidrosis and spaced from 3 months.


Immedialy after treatment :

· Swelling
· Redness

Few hours after :
· Swelling
· Redness
· Slightly painful
