How MiraDry Drastically Reduces Underarm Sweating
Aug 15, 2015

MiraDry for underarm sweatingIs underarm sweating causing you undue embarrassment and shame?
Are anti-perspirants and deodorants useless on your skin?
Have you tried Botox injections to temporarily stop sweating, but want permanent results?

If you repeatedly stain the armpits of your favorite shirts, or end every day feeling sticky or smelly, the Breslow Center has a solution for you. Drs. Gary Breslow and Jordan Farkas are pleased to introduce MiraDry treatment, available now at our New Jersey plastic surgery practice. MiraDry is a revolutionary FDA-approved system that uses energy to permanently destroy sweat and odor glands in the underarms. Since the glands never grow back, the results are permanent.

How MiraDry Works

MiraDry is non-surgical and non-invasive. Patients tolerate treatment exceedingly well, with very few side effects.

First, the underarms are numbed and prepped. The skin is marked to indicate where treatment should be administered. The handpiece is placed directly on the skin and gentle suction brings the skin and sweat glands closer to the surface of the handpiece. The handpiece emits short pulses of energy that target and destroy the sweat and odor glands. Soothing cooling is simultaneously applied to protect the skin and prevent discomfort.

Treatment is performed at the Breslow Center’s Paramus office and takes about an hour. No downtime is necessary; most patients return to work almost immediately and resume exercise within one week. Sweating is noticeably reduced within a few weeks.

Some patients see results in one treatment. Others may need an additional treatment, several months later, for optimal results.

Is It Safe?

Sweating is our body’s natural cooling mechanism, and you might worry that destroying these sweat glands is dangerous. However, keep in mind that only 2 percent of the body’s 2 million sweat glands are located in the underarms. Eliminating these glands will not hinder your body’s natural ability to cool down. You will continue to sweat normally in other areas of your body.
