Miradry uses electromagnetic energy to reduce underarm sweat and odor permanently. The treatment involves using a handheld device to deliver electromagnetic energy to the sweat glands in the underarm area, which selectively damages and eliminates them. The procedure is FDA-approved and can provide long-lasting relief from excessive sweating and odor. You require several Alpharetta Miradry sessions spaced several months apart to see a significant reduction in sweat production.
Miradry evaluation and diagnosis
Miradry is typically performed by a dermatologist or a trained healthcare professional with experience. Before undergoing Miradry treatment, the healthcare professional will evaluate and diagnose to determine if the patient is a good candidate for the procedure.
The evaluation may include a physical examination of the underarm area, a review of the patient’s medical history, and a discussion of the patient’s goals and expectations for the treatment. The healthcare professional may also conduct tests to assess the patient’s sweat production and determine the extent of the problem.
Based on the evaluation and diagnosis, the healthcare professional can determine if Miradry is a suitable treatment option for the patient. Factors such as the patient’s age, overall health, and medical history may also be considered in the decision-making process.
What happens during and after Miradry?
During a Miradry treatment, the patient will be positioned comfortably, and the underarm area will be cleaned and marked for the procedure. The healthcare professional will then apply a numbing cream to the area to ensure a comfortable treatment. Once the area is numb, the handheld device is placed against the skin, and electromagnetic energy is delivered to the sweat glands in the underarm area. The entire treatment usually takes about an hour to complete.
After the Miradry treatment, patients can return to their normal activities immediately, although some may experience mild discomfort, swelling, or bruising in the treated area. The healthcare professional may recommend applying ice packs or over-the-counter pain medication to alleviate discomfort.
Patients should avoid vigorous exercise or activities that may cause excessive sweating for several days after the treatment. They should also prevent deodorant or antiperspirant for a few days after the procedure. The healthcare professional will provide specific instructions on how to care for the treated area and when to schedule follow-up appointments.
