Frequently Asked Questions


Question #1 iconDon’t I need sweat glands?
Answer #1 icon While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 2-4 million sweat glands - only about 2% are found in your underarms. Eliminating this 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself. With miraDry, you will experience the many benefits of reducing sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat in other areas of your body.
Question #1 iconHow does it work?
Answer #1 iconmiraDry uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat and odor glands, as well as hair follicles reside and safely eliminates them.
Question #1 icon What results can I expect?
Answer #1 icon You can expect immediate and lasting results.¹ Once the miraDry treatment eliminates the sweat and odor glands, they’re gone for good.
