What is miraDry?
miraDry is an FDA-cleared procedure for significantly reducing underarm sweat. It is a non-invasive outpatient procedure performed in our office. miraDry works by delivering precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area, eliminating the underarm sweat glands.
Two procedures are typically recommended, 3 months apart, to maximize the quality and duration of results. Each appointment generally lasts about an hour.
miraDry is the only FDA-cleared procedure that provides a lasting reduction of underarm sweat in a completely non-invasive way. Other treatment options, including antiperspirants and Botox, aim to temporarily disable the sweat glands for varying lengths of time and require repeat treatments to maintain effectiveness.
What are the results of miraDry?
The miraDry system eliminates the underarm sweat glands, and the sweat glands do not grow back after treatment. This results in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat. In a clinical study, patients experienced an average of 82% reduction in underarm sweat. You should notice a reduction in sweat immediately after treatment. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person.
So stop worrying about buying underarm sweat pads or underarm deoderants for excessive perspiration. Stop worrying about armpit stains. Stop sweating with miraDry.

Frequently Asked Questions about miraDry for Hyperhidrosis in New Jersey (NJ)
What is the miraDry procedure?
The miraDry procedure is quick, non-invasive and provides a lasting solution for excessive underarm sweat. The handpiece from the miraDry System, when placed on the underarm, delivers precisely controlled energy to the region where the sweat glands reside and eliminates sweat glands non-invasively. The sweat glands don’t grow back once eliminated, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.
What happens during the miraDry procedure?
The miraDry procedure is performed in our office. You will be asked to shave both underarms prior to a procedure visit. If you have not shaved, your hair may be clipped or shaved. This allows for ease of treatment.
You will be lying down on your back for the procedure, with your arms positioned above your head on a special support. At the start of each miraDry procedure, the staff will mark the skin of your underarm with markers or temporary ink. Injectable anesthetic will be used to numb the area prior to the procedure. When the anesthetic is injected, you may feel a pinch or stinging sensation with each injection. Multiple injections into the skin are used in each underarm to make the procedure more comfortable.
Once your skin is numb, the staff will place the miraDry device on your underarm skin on the marked area. Once the device is positioned, the miraDry System will be turned on. You will feel suction of the skin and you will hear tones and beeps that indicate to the operator that the energy is being delivered. This will be repeated multiple times. If you begin to feel significant discomfort or pain during the procedure either in the treatment area or your arm, please alert the operator immediately.
After the procedure is complete, the staff will clean the treated area. You should apply an ice pack to the underarm area after the procedure to reduce potential swelling. You can then return to your normal activities, although we recommend avoiding any vigorous activity with your arms for several days.
