Introducing: MiraDry

We are excited to announce the launch of a new treatment at York Laser Med Spa! MiraDry® is a new treatment that provides a safe and lasting solution to a very common problem – excessive underarm sweating. If you experience unwanted sweating or underarm sweat breakouts, then this is just the procedure for you!

How does it work?

MiraDry® is the latest in non-invasive technology that provides a significant reduction in underarm sweat. It is the only non-invasive technology approved by the FDA that has proven lasting results. The device uses controlled energy to eliminate sweat glands, providing lasting results, because the sweat glands do not grow back.

How is it done?

The treatment itself is relatively painless. Before the procedure, the underarms are numbed with local anesthetic for comfort. During the hour-long in-office procedure, the MiraDry® system delivers electromagnetic energy to the sweat glands through the handpiece. The device heats and destroys the underarm sweat glands while cooling and protecting the top layers of skin. Bonus: it also kills hair follicles!

 

What is recovery like?

When the local anesthetic wears off a few hours after the procedure, you will be a bit sore and swollen. The recovery period is usually one to two days, but it’s smart to give yourself
a few days of downtime to relax and heal. Try to avoid scheduling your appointment before an important work meeting or event.

How soon will I see results?

Patients will see a reduction in sweat immediately after the first treatment, and achieve an average underarm sweat reduction of 82% per treatment. For maximum effectiveness, you might require a second treatment about three months later. Rarely, three sessions are required.
