miraDry vs. Botox for Excessive Sweating: Which Is Best?
Jun 9, 2017

miraDry is a permanent non-invasive treatment for the reduction of underarm sweat, odor and hair. While Botox remains a popular option to address excessive sweating, miraDry offers several advantages. The differences between the two are outlined below.


How miraDry works

Electromagnetic energy neutralizes the glands that cause sweat and odor with an accompanying cooling agent to keep you comfortable during the process.

How Botox Works

Botox is a toxin produced by the bacterum Clostridium botulinum that is injected into sweat muscles to control their relaxation.

During the procedure 10-15 injections are administered to the underarm, temporarily blocking the secretion of the chemical that controls sweat glands.

Why miraDry over Botox?

miraDry offers lifelong results in as little as one treatment, and delivers superior results with little to no side effects. And since several Botox treatments are required to produce noticeable results, miraDry remains the most cost-effective option.

The Breslow Center is among the first and busiest practices to offer miraDry in New Jersey. Feedback from our patients following the procedure is overwhelmingly positive — some even call it a “life-changing experience.”
