The miraDry Procedure provides a lasting solution for excessive underarm sweat
through non-invasive therapy.
For millions of Americans, excessive underarm sweating or “axillary hyperhidrosis” is a daily struggle that can interfere with nearly every aspect of life. Whether it’s anxiety at work, embarrassment in relationships and social settings, or frustration over constantly ruining clothes, excessive sweating can have devastating effects on a person’s emotional well-being and self-image.
Now, there is a lasting solution that can make embarrassing sweat a thing of the past.
The miraDry Procedure does not involve surgical incisions or cuts. The procedure non-invasively delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the region where the sweat glands reside, and eliminates the sweat glands. Because the sweat glands do not regenerate after treatment, you should see a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.
The outpatient procedure is performed in the physician’s office. The clinician customizes treatment for each underarm area with multiple placements of the miraDry Handpiece, delivering electromagnetic energy to the underarm.
Two procedures are typically recommended 3 months apart to maximize the results and duration. Each procedure appointment will generally last about an hour.
There is minimal to no downtime following the procedure. Most patients are able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure, and can typically resume exercise within several days. Localized soreness or swelling is normal, and typically clears within a few weeks.
If embarrassing underarm outbreaks, stained clothing and constant antiperspirant application are a part of your life, then you may be a good candidate for the miraDry Procedure.
With the miraDry Procedure you can get on with your life and leave the burden of underarm sweating behind!

Here is a story on ABC 7 news featuring Dr. Welsh and the miraDry procedure.
Please note that the cost of the miraDry Procedure (two treatments) is $3,000 and not $5,000 as the reporter states at the end of the story.
The miraDry System provides a lasting solution for excessive underarm sweat through
The miraDry System non-invasively delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the region where the sweat glands reside, and eliminates the sweat glands. The result is a dramatic and lasting reduction in underarm sweating.
The miraDry System uses a breakthrough technology based on microwave energy to safely and effectively treat excessive underarm sweating, and is the result of over 5 years of research and development, including a major long-term clinical study conducted by leading dermatologists across the United States.
The miraDry System non-invasively delivers precisely controlled microwave energy to the region where the sweat glands reside. Energy generates heat which results in thermolysis of the sweat glands. At the same time, a continuous hydro-ceramic cooling system protects the superficial dermis and keeps heat at the level of the sweat glands. Because sweat glands do not regenerate after treatment, the results are dramatic and lasting.
How miraDry® Works
The miraDry System uses a breakthrough technology based on microwave energy
for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis.
Microwave energy, which lies between radio-frequency (RF) and lasers in the electromagnetic spectrum,
is the ideal choice for treating axillary hyperhidrosis.
The miraDry System:
- efficiently reaches tissue depths of 2-5mm
- relies on non-invasive energy transmission (energy source does not need to be in direct contact with the skin)
- is optimized to automatically target the dermal-fat interface region
- accommodates a range of skin thicknesses
The miraDry System concentrates energy absorption along the dermal-fat interface (where virtually all of the
sweat glands reside) while minimizing absorption in the dermis and deeper tissue.
The miraDry System takes advantage of the difference in dielectric properties between the dermal and fat layers
to create standing wave absorption patterns that selectively target the region where the sweat glands reside
