In order to provide her hyperhidrosis patients with a more permanent solution, Dr Welsh added the miraDry system in late 2012 and became The Bay Area Center for Excessive Sweating Treatments. A “miraDry Certified Partner,” our San Francisco based practice was the first in Northern California and one of the first 10 practices in the country to offer this treatment. Patients who have received the miraDry procedure have reported life changing results.
The latest upgrade means that miraDry isn’t just for hyperhidrosis patients anymore! Anyone who wants to reduce their sweating is now able to have the procedure. Stop wearing deoderant, run or bike to work, or give presentations without worrying about embarrassing sweat marks.

miraDry, I Love This Treatment!
“I highly recommend the miraDry Treatment. I used to suffer from over active sweating in my underarm area. I couldn’t wear gray, white, or anything besides dark colors. Now I am able to wear all clothing types and colors. The
procedure consisted of zero downtime and only minor swelling. After my treatment I also had a drastic decrease in hair growth in my underarm area and rarely have the need for deodorant. I am over all very pleased!”

What is the miraDry treatment?
miraDry is a new generation of technology that is only available in physician’s offices for the permanent elimination of sweat and odor glands on those people bothered by their underarm sweat. It’s a quick in-office treatment providing immediate and permanent results with minimal to no downtime.
• FDA cleared • Non-invasive • Minimal to no downtime • Immediate, permanent results
How long will it take and how many treatments are needed?
The treatment is complete in about one hour and you will see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any medical treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your desired results.
Is the treatment painful?
Since local anesthesia is administered to the underarm prior to treatment, most patients experience little to no pain. Patients rated treatment pain on an average score of 2 on a scale from 1 to 10 (1 = no pain, 10= worst pain).
Who needs to buy deodorant….I Don’t
“The prepping for the procedure (lidocaine injections) takes longer than the actual treatment. The injections prior to treatment were virtually painless. The treatment is over before you know it and you don’t feel a thing. The
swelling and mild bruising after the treatment is more of a nuisance than physical pain. This treatment is definitely worth never having to purchase deodorant, worrying about deodorant marks on my clothes, or sweating and
smelling after my regular workouts.”

Should I plan on any downtime?
Most patients experience minimal downtime and return to normal activity right after treatment and typically resume exercise within several days.
Are there any side effects?
The miraDry treatment has a strong safety record. You may experience some localized soreness or swelling which 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. Go to www.miraDry.com for more information about the procedure.
Don’t I need underarm sweat glands?
After the miraDry treatment, your underarm sweat and odor glands will be eliminated. While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body contains 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 over 30,000 treatments worldwide, you can feel confident and safe with your sweat-free underarms.
How the miraDry treatment works
miraDry uses microwave energy which is proven to be the ideal method for treating the sweat and odor glands in the underarm. It creates targeted heat in the area where glands reside and safely eliminates them. The advanced design of the miraDry system continuously cools your skin during treatment for added comfort and safety.
miraDry is for everyone!
miraDry is safe to use on everyone regardless of skin color. With miraDry, everyone can embrace life to the fullest – without fear or embarrassment of underarm issues getting in the way. Now, you can stop worrying about yellow stains in the armpit area of your favorite white shirt or chalky deodorant marks on the sides of your top. In as little as one easy treatment, miraDry can leave you feeling clean, confident and carefree forever!
