What to expect during miraDry?

What to expect during miraDry: You may have heard of miraDry – a non-invasive, FDA-approved and CE-certified treatment for excessive sweating for the underarm area. Here at CosmeSurge, Harley Street, we offer this treatment as a permanent solution to the annoying and in many cases, embarrassing issue of excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) under the arms.

So far, all our patients have been astounded at the life-changing results that miraDry can achieve and their everyday activities are no longer thwarted by this condition.

Excessive sweating can start during puberty, as the hormonal changes that take place can play havoc with our bodies. Usually, excessive sweating discontinues when we reach adulthood. Your body settles down into a normal state when it comes to perspiration for the regulation of body temperature. Sometimes, however, this excessive perspiration can continue into adulthood and can dictate social situations, personal relationships, choices of which type of clothing can be worn and the type of lifestyle we lead. This is not an acceptable way to live and at CosmeSurge, we have invested in miraDry as we empathise with those who experience excess sweating and are determined to help our patients eradicate this issue.

What is miraDry?

MiraDry is a hand-held device that can only be used by a qualified practitioner. It uses vacuum suction and microwave heat energy to lift the sweat glands closer to the surface of the skin and then destroy them using this energy.

It’s a fast procedure and many of our patients experience instant results in only one session.

What can I expect during a miraDry treatment?

Before any treatment can take place, you’ll be invited to a no-obligation, pre-treatment consultation with your specialist, so that they can discuss your requirements, your medical history and your suitability for the miraDry procedure. When both parties are satisfied that it would be both safe and beneficial for you to have the treatment, then the procedure can begin.

Firstly, the practitioner will apply a topical anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort. As miraDry is using a type of heat energy, this can be slightly uncomfortable, so at CosmeSurge, we aim to make the treatment as comfortable as possible for you. Once the topical anaesthetic has got to work (usually after around 30 minutes), your skin will be cleansed and the miraDry handpiece is placed on to your underarm.

The vacuum suction action brings the sweat glands closer to the surface of the skin. This helps to protect the underlying tissues and target the sweat and odour glands. The glands are eliminated whilst a targeted cooling system protects the surrounding skin and tissues as well as maintaining your comfort.

After your treatment, you will be able to return to your normal activities, adhering to any aftercare instructions that your practitioner offers you.

You may find that one treatment of miraDry is enough to significantly reduce your underarm sweating, or even eliminate it completely. However, it may be the case that you may need another treatment at a later stage to completely eradicate your underarm sweating completely.
