The results achieved with miraDry are permanent, because the sweat glands that are destroyed during treatment will not grow back.
There are two types of hyperhidrosis. Primary hyperhidrosis is the type of excessive sweating which occurs without a specific cause and can appear at times when you least want it to. Whereas, secondary hyperhidrosis is generally due to temporary circumstances such as pregnancy. However, as this type of sweating is temporary, we advise that you should not treat this unless the symptoms continue afterwards.
Whilst your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 2 - 4 million sweat glands and only around 2% of them are found in your underarms. Eliminating this 2% of sweat glands does not affect your body's ability to cool itself.
The majority of patients describe the procedure as painless with little to no downtime. Local anaesthesia is administered to the underarms prior to the treatment for the patient's comfort. Some localised soreness or swelling may occur as well as swelling, numbness, bruising and sensitivity in the underarm for several days post-treatment.
MiraDry is unique in the fact that it does not require a course of treatments which is spread over either weeks or months. Pricing can vary depending on the treatment protocol to achieve your desired results and will be discussed during your consultation. Also, it does not require further 'top-up' treatments in the future. Once the sweat and odour glands have been destroyed, they do not regenerate.
First Treatment: Starting from £1495
Second Treatment (If Required): Starting from £900
miraDry treatment typically takes around an hour.
The results are both immediate and permanent. The sweat glands destroyed by miraDry will never come back. On average, clinical studies reported an 82% decrease in sweat following treatment.
