About miradry

If you're suffering from consistent, excessive sweating in the underarms that causes embarrassment, stains on your clothes, and a strong odor that is resistant to antiperspirant, then our team of board-certified surgeons strongly encourages you to learn more about miraDry. The body contains millions of sweat glands, with the underarms only making up 2% of these glands. Therefore, it is not medically necessary for these sweat glands to be present. The treatment works by targeting these glands and reducing their function so the sweating can cease. If you're in the Flowood and Jackson, MS area, then we invite you to schedule a consultation with us at The Face & Body Center so you can find out more about this FDA-approved, noninvasive treatment.

Best Candidates

miraDry can help anyone who wants to control the sweat and odor from their underarms. It's a great solution if you:

  • Have consistent problems with excessive underarm sweat
  • Get frequent stains in the underarm area of your shirts
  • Want to avoid the harsh chemicals and toxins in deodorant
  • Are embarrassed by the odor caused by your armpits
  • Want to feel cleaner and fresher
  • Desire a long-term solution

what to expect

miraDry is an outpatient procedure. One of our team members will first clean the areas being treated and offer you a topical anesthetic for more comfort during the treatment. The miraDry device will be passed over the underarms, where the suction in the handpiece will draw out the sweat and odor glands. The miraWave™ technology will heat up and reduce the function of the sweat glands while the surface of your skin should remain cool. Overall, this should be a comfortable procedure that typically lasts about one hour. You may experience some temporary swelling, redness, or discomfort in the underarms after your session.

anticipated results

You should have a reduction in underarm sweat right after the treatment. Once the sweat glands are destroyed, they are unable to come back, so your results should be long lasting. For best results, it is usually recommended that you receive two treatments spaced out over a period of a few weeks.
