Is MiraDry Really That Good?

Is MiraDry Really That Good | The Spa on Hignland

Tired of wet underarms or sweat soaking your shirt when you are out in the sun, exercising, or in a heated room? Afraid to take off your sweater or jacket in a meeting, fearing you will have sweat rings? A new miracle procedure takes away excessive underarm sweating for good. No, it’s not Botox, or injections, or even surgery, but a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis or excessive underarm sweat.

What is MiraDry?

MiraDry was developed by Miramar Labs and uses MiraWave Thermal Energy technology. This technology is highly effective and safe, non-surgical procedure using microwave technology to break down sweat and odor glands in the armpits. MiraDry can also destroy hair follicles in the underarms, which can be a nice bonus. Do I really need to sweat? Yes, sweat is a necessary cooling process for your body, but you need not sweat from your underarms. There are almost 44 million sweat glands throughout your body, and your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands.


The treatment is clinically proven to provide an 82% underarm sweat reduction and an 89% odor reduction with just one treatment. The technology is permanent and allows you to feel more confident and relief from embarrassing sweat and odor. You don’t have to try and find the right prescription antiperspirants or invest in other more painful procedures. Your results may vary, but we are pleased to let you know that all of our patients have had success.


MiraDry is a process that takes about an hour to perform. The treatment is done at The Spa on Highland’s facility. The Spa is a certified miraDry clinic which means the staff is trained to deliver the highest quality treatment. The treatment is almost painless, and only minimal soreness is felt after the treatment. You can get back to your busy day with little downtime and resume exercise within 3-5 days. Do note that you may experience numbness, bruising, swelling, and sensitivity in your underarm area for a few days to weeks after the treatment.


Most patients have excellent results after a single treatment and the best thing? They never worry about excessive underarm sweat. Be confident and stress-free! You may need a second treatment to reach your desired results. You are a suitable candidate if excessive underarm sweat impacts your daily life and makes you avoid extreme activities due to underarm sweat. In 2016, a study estimated that hyperhidrosis or excess sweating affects about 4.8% of the U.S population.


Insurance does not cover the treatment, unfortunately, but remember that it is the only treatment the FDA has cleared to reduce underarm sweat permanently. The Spa on Highland does offer Cherry, which is an interest-free monthly payment plan that can help with the cost of MiraDry.
