How miraDry Works

Lasting relief for Excessive Underarm Sweating

Until now, managing your underarm issues and the negative impact on your body, clothing, and self-confidence has been messy, time consuming, and costly. Now there is a solution!

miraDry® is the first and only non-invasive treatment to permanently eliminate your underarm sweat and odor glands. FDA-cleared and CE marked, the miraDry treatment is done in the comfort of your doctor's office and is quick-taking only about one hour. After your treatment, you can expect to see immediate and lasting results.

miraDry is for you*, if you are:

*miraDry is indicated for the treatment of primary axillary hyperhidrosis, or those bothered by their sweat.
miraDry is not indicated for use for those under 18 years of age.

miraDry advantages include:

Before treatment, the underarms are numbed for patient comfort. During the miraDry procedure, precisely controlled electromagnetic energy is non-invasively delivered to eliminate the underarm sweat glands. Two, one hour procedures are typically recommended three months apart. The sweat glands don't grow back after treatment, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.

You should be able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure, and can typically resume exercise within several days. Localized soreness or swelling is normal, and usually clears within a few weeks. Some patients have temporary, short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.

After treatment, most patients report a dramatic reduction of underarm sweat – in a recent clinical study, the average reduction was 82%. Reduction in sweat is immediate with optimal results obtained after the second treatment. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person.

Vein Therapy

Weʼll Help You Eliminate Unsightly Veins

Facial Capillaries

Damaged facial capillaries are small red or bluish lines visible just under the skin which can create a reddish, blotchy look. We have several options that eliminate redness and produce exceptional results for a wide range of patients.

Leg Veins

Today’s options can produce exceptional results.

We offer a combination of safe and effective treatments to gently remove unsightly veins. Many of our patients take advantage of both laser and sclerotherapy (injection therapy). Our laser features a cooling hand piece for better comfort and selected delivery of light energy. The laser delivers a targeted beam of light to destroy unwanted vessels. Sclerotherapy uses a microscopic needle to inject a solution into the unwanted vein, which causes the vein to gradually disappear.

Individual patient results may vary.
