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.
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
"Awesome Experince - After visiting just about every Surgeon in MS and LA, I saw Dr. Davidson, I knew right then he was my pick. In October 2016 I went in to the office and he drained my 450 each breast saline implants. No pain so simple, sent me home and said come back in 6 weeks. Mind you I still had the bags in. Thought this would be hard really never knew they were there. I had some pre-cancerous spots..."- A. / RealSelf / Jun 06, 2018
"I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Barraza and the entire Face and Body Center staff I have encountered! They’re all extremely professional and very helpful. Dr. Barraza takes plenty of time with his patients discussing procedures and explaining all options. I truly felt like he treated me as he would his own wife/daughter. Very thankful for him and his wonderful nurses!"- B.C. / Google / Mar 12, 2019

"From beginning to end, The Face and Body Center went above and beyond my expectations! I went in for a BA consult in April of 2018 and by March 2019 I was finally ready to take the plunge and have the surgery. Dr. Barraza and his staff were amazing and they made the process so EASY!!! I was a nervous wreck the day of my surgery, but they were so calm, collected and professional that it was hard to worry! It was seriously a breeze. I can't wait to see the final results, but I know they're going to be great! I highly recommend Dr. Barraza!!!"- L.A. / Google / Mar 12, 2019

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.
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.
