How many miraDry treatments do I need to see results?

If you’re looking for an effective cure for excessive underarm sweating, miraDry may be the right solution for you. People that perspire a lot often find the condition uncomfortable and embarrassing, but miraDry is a safe, effective treatment that provides lasting relief. But just how many miraDry treatments do you need to see results.

Excessive underarm sweating
Excessive underarm sweating, also known as axillary hyperhidrosis is a common problem that affects about 3% of the US population. People with hyperhidrosis tend to sweat all year round and in any type of weather, and they often try a variety of treatment options, but experience very little success.

miraDry is a non-invasive treatment that uses microwave energy to destroy the sweat glands and odor glands. The device precisely targets the glands, without harming the surrounding structures. The glands that are destroyed do not grow back, so that’s the reason why miraDry can effectively reduce underarm sweating for the long term. Side-effects are minimal and include soreness, swelling, and tingling that typically last a few days.

How many miraDry treatments do I need to see results?
In most cases a single miraDry treatment is all that’s needed to achieve lasting results. Patients typically experience about an 80% reduction in sweating after the first treatment, and if sweating does occurit’s usually not enough to even need an antiperspirant, so most patients don’t require a second treatment.
