Permanently Stop Underarm Sweat Now
Looking and feeling your best shouldn’t include the potential embarrassment caused by underarm sweat and odor. Imagine a lifetime of freedom from the worries of visible sweat stains, ruining your favorite clothes with deodorants or antiperspirants, or having that sweat breakout in personal or professional encounters.
Live a life of confidence, cleanliness and freedom with miraDry®! miraDry is an effective FDA-cleared treatment to permanently eliminate sweat and odor glands in the underarm area.
Why should you have your miraDry performed by a Coolspa plastic surgeon?
The first stage of the procedure is numbing of the area to be treated. As plastic surgeons, we are experts in this technique (it is the same as the one we use for liposuction!) and it is critical to a successful outcome.
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, Dr. Rapaport or Dr. Smith 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).
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.
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 electromagnetic 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 in our NYC plastic surgery office, 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!
