How Does It Work?

Unlike a botox treatment that lasts 2-6 months, miraDry® is permanent

Don't We Need Sweat Glands to Cool the Body?

This is actually a common misconception, which is easily explained and backed by years of research on hyperhidrosis. Our bodies contain an astounding 4,000,000 sweat glands which help expel sweat and toxins from our systems. With only a slight 2% of sweat glands present underneath the arms, there is no harm in removing glands associated with profuse sweating.

What to Expect During your miraDry® Procedure

This non-invasive procedure generally takes around one hour. Prior to your procedure, our clinical staff will prepare you with a thorough cleansing and administer a local anesthetic to numb the target area. We will precisely outline the treatment area with temporary marks to prepare you for miraDry®. Next, you'll undergo advanced microwave technology, where electromagnetic energy is delivered to the underarm region to selectively destroy sweat-glands. Throughout the treatment, the miraDry® system emits waves of cooling energy to prevent burning and increase comfort.

Is the treatment painful?

Because you are locally numbed in the area prior to treatment, the miraDry procedure itself should be painless. If anything, the very most you will feel would be a slight warm sensation.

How many treatments will I need?

Most people who are doing the treatment for strictly cosmetic purposes will usually only need 1 treatment. For somebody with hyperhidrosis, 1-2 treatments, minimally 3 months apart is typical. Occasionally, a third treatment is needed for some cases.

What is the success rate of miraDry?

The success rate is extremely high. As with any treatment, the results may vary from person to person. There is reportedly a 75-95% reduction in sweat and body odor in the underarm area.

Recovery and Post Procedural Care

Following the FDA-approved treatment, individuals normally experience slight swelling, soreness and tingling sensations underneath the arms. These side-effects usually subside within one week following your procedure. We're excited to say patients will notice an immediate reduction in the amount of sweat they produce. Thankfully, sweat-glands cannot regenerate so results are long-lasting once the glands are eliminated. Since miraDry® is non-surgical, most individuals are able to return to work and their schedules immediately following a procedure.

Our dedicated staff and team of medical assistants will walk you through every step of the miraDry® process. We recommend swelling to be treated with mild pain relievers and ice compresses throughout the days following miraDry®. Though you can resume light activities right after you leave our office, please refrain from heavy exercise for a few days to promote healing.

Candidates for the miraDry® Procedure

Healthy individuals who would like to experience the relief and comfort of dry underarms are exceptional candidates for this sweat-reduction treatment. Our dermatological team will consult with each patient to explain potential treatment options based on your lifestyle, body-type and age. Please consult with our dermatologists at Ringpgfeil Dermatology if you would like to learn more about the miraDry® procedure.

miraDry® review

I have been suffering from excessive sweating for as long as I can remember. I tried off-the counter wipes, wearing dark colors, and always having a dark cardigan in my bag in order to wear when sweat stains become too visible. I researched permanent solutions and found out about miraDry®. I then went to miraDry®'s website and looked for dermatologists who offer the procedure.

My experience with Dr Ringpfeil has been phenomenal. I am from DC and I looked for dermatologists that accept my insurance. I knew miraDry® would probably not be covered by insurance but I preferred to be insured in the unlikely case of a side complication. Dr Ringpfeil's staff, especially Emily and Martha, were extremely helpful and accommodating in explaining the procedure to me and letting me know what my options were. I decided, after my positive phone experience, to rent a car and drive from DC to Pennsylvania for a day to perform the procedure. I wasn't able to have the procedure during the normal work week since I was working in DC but Dr Ringpfeil accommodated me by having the procedure on a Saturday morning. Dr Ringpfeil also accommodated my requests for the procedure's intensity level explaining the pros and cons. After the procedure, Emily patiently explained how to reduce the discomfort and answered all my requests and questions.

It has been two months since my procedure and my sweating level has decreased significantly. I recommend miraDry® to those who suffer from excessive sweating and I most definitely recommend Dr Ringpfeil's office overall. They are helpful, knowledgeable and extremely friendly and accommodating.

I've never been in a medical office that was so warm and inviting. The decor and overall appearance has the feel of your living room but also reminds you that you are in a clinical environment as well. This practice surpasses my expectations in every way, from the staff, dress code, advances in technology and overall care of the patient. I was made to feel that my care is your number one priority.

#82011-04-29 11:02:03

This was my very first visit; as a result, some of the questions above jump the gun a bit. However, the initial visit was a pleasant experience.
