How to Prepare for miraDry®

miradry Philadelphia

Excessive sweating or odor can significantly impact your quality of life and even discourage you from participating in social activities out of fear of stress or embarrassment. If you struggle with excessive sweating that affects your confidence and daily life and desire a lifelong and non-toxic solution, miraDry® may be the treatment for you.

What is miraDry®?

miraDry® is the first FDA-cleared non-invasive treatment for hyperhidrosis, a condition linked to excessive sweating and overactive sweat glands. miraDry® is a handheld device that applies heat to sweat glands in the treatment area to deactivate them, so they no longer produce sweat. The body will absorb these deactivated glands, and no new glands will take their place, meaning you can enjoy the results from your miraDry® treatment for a lifetime.

How to Prepare for miraDry®

To prepare for your miraDry® treatment, we may ask that you shave for the last time about three to six days before your appointment. You may be permitted to shave once again after your treatment. 

We recommend you have some over-the-counter pain relievers and ice packs ready before your procedure since you will likely experience some swelling and discomfort after treatment. The best clothing to wear for your appointment will be a dark-colored tank top, as lighter colors may stain during your procedure. 

What are the Benefits of miraDry®?

miraDry® is non-invasive and provides an excellent long-term solution for excessive sweating and odor caused by hyperhidrosis. miraDry® can help significantly improve your quality of life and confidence in just one to two treatments. With miraDry®, you can experience up to 82% less sweat and 89% less odor in the treatment area. Some of the benefits of miraDry® can include the following:

  • Permanent and Immediate results 
  • Desired results in just one to two sessions
  • No downtime
  • Alternative to chemical-based treatments
