No Sweat
No Stress™

What is
miraDry?

Is excessive underarm sweating interfering with your social life? Are sweat stains providing you with insecurities on a daily basis? At Toronto Cosmetic Clinic, we have the solution for you!

Introducing, miraDry a non-surgical treatment that permanently destroys sweat and odor glands. MiraDry uses thermal energy to destroy these glands in the underarm area in less than one hour!

Am I a Candidate
for miraDry?

miraDry is intended to treat axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating). Treatments to help with axillary hyperhidrosis and underarm odor, include prescription strength antiperspirants and sweat absorbing pads, however these are often found to be ineffective. If you are embarrassed by lifting your arm up or bothered by the feeling of wet underarms, miraDry can provide you with much relief. Even if you do not sweat excessively but you wanted to free yourself from wearing antiperspirant on a daily basis, miraDry can help!

How is miraDry
Performed?

First, the underarms are cleaned and then marked with a temporary grid to help guide the miraDry handpiece. Local anesthesia is injected into the treated area in order to numb the underarms and make the treatment comfortable. Next the miraDry handpiece is applied directly on the skin for approximately 20 minutes per underarm. During the process most patients do not feel pain, but do experience a slight suction sensation. Thermal energy is delivered from the handpiece and is targeted towards the sweat and odor glands, whereby the energy is absorbed and consequently, safely deactivates these glands. Cooling is applied to protect the skin.

After miraDry: No Sweat, No Stress!

The miraDry results are immediate, as during the treatment the sweat and odor glands are deactivated. Since the body can no longer use these glands they are safely eliminated as the glands do not regenerate, and thus no sweat and no odor are produced!

Most patients experience a degree of swelling, bruising, numbness and some soreness for a few days up to a couple weeks after. You can return to work the same day, however exercise is to be avoided for a few days after. Patients may need to ice the underarms for a few days after to help alleviate some soreness.

As a bonus, miraDry eliminates the hair follicles in the underarms a well! Most patients can see up to 70% reduction in underarm hair.

miraDry vs. Botox®

Botox® is an alternative to miraDry as it is also intended to treat axillary hyperhidrosis. Botox® however does not eliminate the odor glands, nor does it eliminate some of the hair follicles.

The results of Botox® last for approximately 6 months, whereas miraDry results are permanent, and patients only need 1-2 treatments. Botox® is administered through a needle, where it uses a neurotoxin to deactivate sweat glands temporarily.

miraDry uses thermal energy to permanently deactivate and eliminate sweat and odor glands. Botox® may be the solution for you though if you suffer from excessive sweating on your face, or hands!

Question & Answer

  • Will removing my sweat glands affect my body’s ability to regulate my temperature?

    Removing your sweat glands does not affect your body’s temperature regulation system, as only 2% of your body’s sweat glands are located in the underarms. Adults have 2-4 million sweat glands all over their bodies.

  • Is the miraDry treatment painful?

    Before the miraDry device is applied to the skin, local anesthesia is administered through a needle to freeze the underarm area. You will feel the initial poke of the needle, however you will not feel pain when the miraDry handpiece is activated on your skin.

  • How well does miraDry work?

    miraDry is FDA and Health Canada approved. With one treatment it has been proven that patients see an average 82% reduction in sweating and 89% reduction in odor. As a bonus, patients see 70% of hair reduction on their underarms.

  • Can miraDry be used on other parts of the body?

    Currently miraDry is only approved to be used on the underarms. If you suffer from excessive sweating on the hands or face, Botox® may be the right treatment for you.
