miraDry is treatment for underarm perspiration that delivers precisely controlled energy to the region where the underarm sweat glands reside and eliminates them non-invasively. Because the sweat glands do not regenerate following treatment, the results are long-lasting. Furthermore, patients can expect to see sweat reduction immediately after treatment, with minimal to no downtime.

The average waistline reduction after just a single one-hour treatment is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) – which typically means one dress or pant size.
