What Is miraDry?
miraDry is a non-invasive procedure that permanently reduces excessive sweating. miraDry uses directed electromagnetic energy to destroy sweat glands for a permanent reduction in sweat production in the targeted area.
Sweat glands that are eliminated by miraDry don’t regenerate, and the procedure doesn’t interfere with your body’s abilities to cool itself. Although many patients who undergo miraDry have been clinically diagnosed with hyperhidrosis, a diagnosis isn’t a prerequisite for treatment. Any healthy adult who wants to sweat less is a good candidate.
miraDry at our Idaho Falls-based practice is performed in our office by a qualified member of our medical team. Using a handheld device, your practitioner directs electromagnetic energy to the treatment area — typically the underarms.
During the procedure, which typically lasts about an hour, you may feel some mild discomfort. Although general anesthesia isn’t necessary, we do offer localized pain relief to improve your comfort. Following your treatment, you can get back to your regular daily activities immediately, although some mild swelling and soreness may persist for a few days. These symptoms can be alleviated with cold compresses.
For the best results, we recommend a series of 2 treatments spaced about 3 months apart. Although you will likely notice an improvement in your sweating after the first treatment, undergoing a second treatment maximizes results.Back to Top
