miraDry FAQs

What is the miraDry procedure?

The miraDry procedure is a safe, clinically proven, FDA-cleared solution for significantly reducing underarm sweat. The procedure is quick, non-invasive, and performed in the privacy and comfort of our medical offices in Cool Springs (Franklin).

How does miraDry work?

The miraDry system delivers precisely controlled energy to the region where the underarm sweat glands reside, which heats the sweat glands and eliminates them for good.

Is miraDry the microwave procedure I keep hearing about?

Yes! You’ve seen the miraDry “microwave” procedure on Dr. Oz, The Doctors, and The Rachael Ray Show. The microwave energy used during the miraDry treatment is precisely controlled and delivered directly to the sweat glands, so it is safe and effective

What happens during the miraDry procedure?

Your physician customizes the treatment for each underarm, based on where your sweat glands reside. The underarms are numbed prior to the procedure for your comfort. Your physician then holds the miraDry hand piece up to the underarms, which delivers energy to the sweat glands.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure usually takes about an hour.

Does the procedure hurt?

Most patients experience very little pain because the procedure is performed under local anesthesia. During the procedure, most people experience some pressure and light pulling on the skin, with some sensations of warmth. There may be an occasional “hot spot” that lasts briefly but is usually well tolerated. On average, patients describe the discomfort as about a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the highest).

How is miraDry different from other treatment options?

Alternative options, including antiperspirants and BOTOX, aim to temporarily disable the sweat glands for varying lengths of time – requiring expensive repeat treatments to maintain effectiveness. Other options involve surgery, which poses its own risks. miraDry is the only treatment that provides lasting results in a non-invasive way.
