miraDry - A Lasting Solution for Sweating- with less B.O. too!
Are you bothered by your underarm sweat? Do you frequently apply anti-perspirant? Are you embarrassed to lift your arms for fear of dreaded “pit stains” or find yourself avoiding certain colors when shopping? If this is a reality for you (or you would ljust like to be free of concerns about moisture and odor), as it is for millions of Americans, a new breakthrough technology can provide you with a lasting solution that will make embarrassing underarm sweat a thing of the past - miraDry.
Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery is proud to be the first practice in Central Florida to provide miraDry treatments. miraDry is a quick, safe, non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA to dramatically reduce sweating with lasting results, and with the added benefits of a couple of positive side effects- reduction in underarm odor, and reduction in underarm hair growth as well!
This state-of-the-art technology works by delivering controlled energy to sweat glands through a carefully positioned handpiece. Once treated, these glands will never regenerate again - giving you not only dry underarms, but peace of mind.
The procedure is done under local anesthesia, takes about an hour, and you can drive yourself to and from our state-of-the-art Orlando Plastic Surgery and Skincare Center, located in the heart of Orlando's beautiful Dr. Phillips neighborhood. For most patients, two procedures spaced three months apart are needed to achieve maximum results.
In clinical studies, miraDry was reported to reduce sweating, on average, by 82% over the long term, and is among the procedures associated with the very highest rates of patient satisfaction nationally.
You can expect to see an immediate reduction of sweat without the use of incisions and minimal to no downtime associated. Over-the-counter pain medication and ice packs will help minimize any soreness or swelling.
Frequently Asked miraDry Questions
- What is the miraDry® procedure? The miraDry procedure is quick, non-invasive and provides a lasting solution for underarm sweating. When placed on the armpit skin by Dr. Soto or Bridget Kelly PAC, the miraDry handpiece delivers precisely controlled energy to the region where the sweat glands reside and eliminates the sweat glands non-invasively. The sweat glands don’t grow back once eliminated, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat, with the side effects of diminished body odor and hair growth.
- What is the procedure like? The procedure involves no surgical incisions or cuts. Dr. Soto or Bridget will customize your treatment for each underarm area with multiple placements of the miraDry handpiece. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the procedure to maintain your comfort. Your office visit appointment will generally last about one to two hours. Two procedures spaced three months apart are required to maximize the results and duration of your benefit.
- What happens after the procedure? There is minimal to no downtime following the procedure. Dr. Soto or Bridget will likely recommend a mild over-the-counter pain medication and use of ice packs for a few days. You should be able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure, and you can typically resume exercise within several days. Some localized soreness or swelling is normal, and typically clears within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
What results can I expect? Most patients report a dramatic reduction of their sweat – in a recent clinical study1, the average sweat reduction was 82%. You should see a reduction in sweat immediately after treatment. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person.
