  1. Focused energy delivery to the dermal fat interface region
    • Virtually all the sweat glands reside there
  2. Energy becomes concentrated along interface and creates a focal energy zone
    • Differences in electromagnetic properties in the interface create reflection of energy
    • Energy intensified from constructive interference
  3. Continuous hydro-ceramic cooling system keeps heat zone at level of sweat glands
    • Cellular thermolysis occurs at 55 to 60 degrees Celsius
    • No regeneration of sweat glands results in a lasting solution
    • Cooling protects epidermis and upper dermis, while deeper tissue not affected

Sweat free. Odor free. Deodorant free. Forever!

The MiraDry system eradicates the underarm sweat glands, and the sweat glands don’t grow back after treatment. This results in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat. In a clinical study, patients experienced an average of 82% reduction in underarm sweat.

You should notice a reduction in sweat immediately after treatment. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person. Secondary effects include underarm hair and odor reduction. Ask Dr. Gill if her Naples, FL MiraDry procedure is right for you.

What to expect

You can expect minimal to no downtime following the procedure.

You should be able to return to normal activities or work right away, and you can typically resume exercise within several days.

Localized soreness or swelling is normal, and usually clears within a few weeks. Some patients have temporary altered sensation in their underarm or upper arm skin, which gradually disappears.

MiraDry FAQS


Why do we sweat?

Our bodies produce sweat to help cool us down when we’re overheated.

So it's not unusual to sweat a lot?

Not in the least. It’s a condition that affects millions of people. In fact, 1 in 5 Americans says they sweat excessively.

Why do some people sweat more than others?

Some people have overactive sweat glands, meaning they frequently turn on when they should be at rest, and they produce much more sweat than what’s needed to cool the body. Some people’s sweat glands can produce four or five times more sweat than normal.

How is sweat produced?

Underarm sweat is produced through two types of sweat glands located just below the surface of the skin. The eccrine glands secrete a clear, odorless fluid to help cool the body. The apocrine glands produce a thicker fluid that gives underarm sweat its distinctive odor.

Is MiraDry for everyone?

Miradry is for everyone and anyone suffering from any of the following:

  • Visible underarm wetness during a business or social situation
  • Stains/streaks in clothing due to sweat and use of deodorants or antiperspirants
  • Lingering odor in clothing
  • Frequent dry cleaning due to odor or stains
  • Dislike daily use of chemicals / deodorants / antiperspirants
  • That not-so-fresh feeling during the day

What happens during the MiraDry procedure?

Your physician customizes the treatment for each underarm, based on where your sweat glands reside. The underarms are numbed prior to the procedure for your comfort. Your physician then holds the MiraDry hand piece up to the underarms, which delivers energy to the sweat glands.

How long does the procedure last?

The procedure usually takes about an hour.

Do the underarm sweat glands ever grow back?

No. The underarm sweat glands don’t grow back or regenerate once they’ve been removed.

How is MiraDry different from other treatment options?

Alternative options, including antiperspirants and toxins, aim to temporarily disable the sweat glands for varying lengths of time – requiring repeat treatments to maintain effectiveness. Other options involve surgery, which poses inherent risks. MiraDry is the only treatment that provides lasting results in a non-invasive way.

Does the procedure hurt?

Most patients experience little pain because the procedure is performed under local anesthesia. During the procedure, most people experience some pressure and light pulling on the skin, with some sensations of warmth. There may be an occasional “hot spot” that lasts briefly but is usually well tolerated. On average, patients describe the discomfort as about a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the highest).

But wait, don't I need my underarm sweat glands?

Actually, no. Your body contains over four million sweat glands, and only about 2% of them are in your underarms. Removing this 2% does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself.

Does MiraDry cause increased sweating in other parts of the body?

No. When sweat glands are removed from the underarms, you simply stop sweating in that area. So don’t worry – your body won’t start sweating more in other areas to “compensate” or anything like that.

Can MiraDry remove sweat glands elsewhere on the body?

No. MiraDry cannot be used to treat excessive sweating in other areas of the body, such as hands, feet, forehead, or knees.

Is MiraDry safe?

Yes! The MiraDry procedure is FDA-cleared and has been performed successfully on thousands of patients, and it’s been proven to be highly safe and effective.
