MiraDry Q & A
What is MiraDry?
MiraDry is an advanced system that uses thermal energy to treat overactive sweat glands. Once the treatment destroys your sweat glands, they permanently stop functioning. This means you can enjoy yourself without ruining your clothes, smelling, or displaying visible sweat stains throughout the day.
At the start of your MiraDry treatment, Dr. Forsha and his team numb your armpits. Then, they glide the MiraDry handpiece across the skin in your armpits to create and deliver heat to your sweat glands. The system also includes a cooling effect to help stop you from overheating and a suctioning effect to bring your sweat glands closer to your skin’s surface.
Most people only need one MiraDry treatment to successfully eliminate the sweat and odor glands from their armpits. A few people need two treatments to enjoy the full effect.
What does MiraDry treat?
MiraDry is designed to treat axillary hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes you to sweat excessively from your armpits. Even if you’re not exercising or standing in the sun all day, you might sweat so much that you soak through your clothes or feel your sweat dripping down your arms and sides.
A moderate amount of sweating during exertion or when you’re hot is completely normal. If you feel like you sweat too much, even without a hyperhidrosis diagnosis, MiraDry may be a treatment option for you.
While your sweat glands are responsible for regulating your temperature, losing the function of the 2% of sweat glands that are located in your armpits won’t affect your body’s ability to cool down.
Am I a good candidate for MiraDry?
MiraDry treatments are available for people who sweat excessively, whether or not they have hyperhidrosis. The treatments are gentle, noninvasive, and safe for anyone with this issue.
You might consider booking a consultation for MiraDry at Jordan Valley Dermatology Center because:

- You constantly have to change into dry clothes
- Deodorant and antiperspirant don’t work for you
- You’ve already tried other treatments for sweating
Before your treatment, Dr. Forsha and his team conduct a brief consultation with you. They ask about your sweating and might recommend lab tests to rule out other conditions related to excessive sweating.
