miraDry® (Treatment for Hyperhidrosis, Excessive Sweating) –Morristown, NJ*

51 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Almost everyone has excessive underarm sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis) during the hot summer days, but some people suffer all year with this embarrassing problem. Excessive sweating and odor under the arms has typically been treated with botox. But this treatment is costly, repetive, and the results only last 2-3 months. Now sweating and odor can be greatly reduced or eliminated completely with a new nonsurgical treatment, miraDry. The miraDry system is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) to safely treat excessive underarm perspiration and odor. The controlled heat and energy pulses target the sweat glands and eliminates them without affecting the surrounding tissue.  miraDry also impacts the glands responsible for underarm odor,  significantly decreasing the noticeable and often distressing odor-causing secretions. As an added benefit, treatment with miraDry also decreases under arm hair by up to 75%! Once the sweat glands have been destroyed, they do not return, so you will have long-lasting results. In addition to saving you embarrassment, treatment with miraDry by the plastic surgeons of The Peer Group in Florham Park, for underarm sweating can save you money on deodorant, undershirts, and dry cleaning.

Procedure Process

The procedure for miraDry is non-invasive, non-surgical, and requires no recovery period. To improve patient comfort, one of our plastic surgeons will infuse a local anesthetic into the treatment areas. Administration of this anesthetic allows each under arm to be treated in the safest manner possible.. It usually takes about 1 hour in the office to have both underarms treated and many patients will only need 1 treatment. After the procedure, patients are able to return to work and their normal activities, but exercise should be avoided for a few days. Some patients may have temporary numbness, bruising, or swelling in the treated area for up to a week after the procedure.

What to Expect

For any pain, swelling, or bruising in the first days after the procedure, the patient can apply icepacks for 20 minutes at a time to minimize their discomfort. Most patients will see significant results immediately after their first treatment, however our board certified plastic surgeons will discuss treatment recommendations based on each patient's condition and goals. The other sweat glands in your body will continue to work normally and patients DO NOT see increased sweating in other areas as a result of this non-invasive procedure.

miraDry FAQs

Is It Safe?

Many patients are concerned that removing the sweat glands from the armpit will affect the rest of the body, but only 2% of your 2 million sweat glands are in the armpits, so you will be fine without them. The sweat glands in the body will continue to function as a cooling system for the skin. The only difference will be the lack of sweat stains under your arms.

Number of Treatments?

While the majority of patients will see full, immediate results after 1 treatment, some patients will need a second treatment 6-8 weeks laterfor complete eradication of their sweat.. While most patients will still have some sweat glands, clinical studies show that there is an 80% or more reduction in perspiration after the treatment.

Permanent Results?

The miraDry system safely targets and destroys sweat glands for long-lasting results. Since sweat glands do not regenerate, patients will not need to schedule follow up treatments once they get their best result. Anyone who is embarrassed, tired, or simply bothered by their excessive underarm sweating and odor should schedule a consultation to learn more about options to improve their condition.

 

People concerned about the safety of anti-perspirants are great candidates for this procedure.
