Are you sick of hyperhidrosis or have an abundance of underarm sweat and odor? We can help with our miraDry system, which uses thermal energy that targets and eliminates the sweat glands in your underarm. Once eliminated, they do not grow back. Goodbye, sweat and stains. No need to suffer from excessive sweating. Our revolutionary noninvasive procedure delivers a permanent solution for hyperhidrosis.
What is miraDry?
If you feel self-conscious about excessive sweating or how it smells, don’t hesitate to make an appointment at A Beautiful You Medical Spa. They offer miraDry in Memphis to help people just like you go through life without having to worry about what’s happening under their arms.
With miraDry, a groundbreaking treatment, the team at A Beautiful You Medical Spa has a way to help people put sweaty armpits and odor behind them permanently.
During treatment, your provider uses the innovative handheld miraDry device to send thermal energy safely through your skin into your sweat, odor, and hair glands. As this thermal energy reaches those glands, it destroys them — for good. Clinical studies show that patients enjoy an average of an 82% reduction in sweat after miraDry treatment.
Although your body does rely on your sweat glands to cool itself, miraDry only treats 2% of your body’s total glands.
How do I prepare for miraDry treatment?
To get ready for your treatment, shave your underarms four to six days before your appointment at A Beautiful You Medical Spa. On the day of your treatment, wear loose clothing that exposes your underarms, and don’t apply any deodorant or antiperspirant.
Your A Beautiful You Medical Spa provider applies a local anesthetic to your underarms before starting, and most patients say the treatment is completely painless.
To give you the absolute best results possible, the A Beautiful You Medical Spa team usually recommends a second miraDry treatment. This way, you get the dramatic, permanent reduction in sweat and odor you want.
What should I expect after miraDry treatment?
The vast majority of people go back to their usual routine, including work, immediately after treatment. You can even start exercising again in a few days.
You might feel some sensitivity in your underarm area for a few days after treatment, but most people can comfortably manage it with ibuprofen and ice packs.
miraDry in Memphis delivers instant results, too. You leave your appointment already enjoying your dramatically decreased sweat and odor production.
Don’t I need sweat glands?
While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 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 miraDry in Memphis, you will experience the many benefits of reducing sweat in the underarm area, but you will continue to sweat in other areas of your body.
How does it work?
miraDry uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat and odor glands, as well as hair follicles reside and safely eliminates them.
What results can I expect?
You can expect immediate and lasting results. Once the miraDry treatment eliminates the sweat and odor glands, they’re gone for good. The treatment is clinically proven to have an average of 82% sweat reduction and 89% odor reduction.1,3 As with any aesthetic treatment, patient results and experiences may vary
How many treatments will I need?
You can see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best protocol for your desired results.
Is there any pain or downtime?
Most patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime. Local anesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for patient comfort. Most patients return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise is typically resumed within several days. You may experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity in the underarm area for several days after treatment.
Is it safe?
Yes, miraDry has been used in over 150,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record. It’s also been cleared by the FDA to dramatically reduce underarm sweat in as little as one appointment.
Are there any side effects?
Some localized soreness or swelling will occur, and typically clear within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
Is miraDry covered by insurance?
miraDry in Memphis typically is not covered by insurance, but it is the first and only treatment FDA-cleared to permanently reduce underarm sweat in as little as one appointment. However, you may be able to use your HSA/FSA funds toward miraDry. Please contact your HSA/FSA manager to find out.
