Excessive Underarm Sweating

The miraDry treatment is a permanent solution for excessive underarm sweating.

How does it work?

The miraDry treatment is a procedure that uses non-invasive technology that is FDA and TGA cleared and is clinically proven to dramatically reduce sweat and provide long lasting results.

miraDry works by eliminating the sweat glands through the following steps:

Step 1 miraDrys unique microwave energy is focused in the region of the sweat glands.

Step 2 Differences in the fat and dermis causes a local area of energy, in turn causing reflection of energy,resulting in controlled heating.

Step 3 Upper layer of skin is cooled whilst sweat glands are eliminated via continued heating. Sweat glands do not grow back after they are destroyed resulting in permanent sweat reduction.

How many treatments do I require?

1+ treatments is required to give the best possible results for permanent sweat reduction.

How long does the treatment take and what is the recovery time?

You will have an initial consultation and then the miraDry treatment takes approximately 1 hour.

Most patients experience minimal downtime and return to normal activity right after treatment and typically resume excercise within several days.

Is the treatment painful?

This treatment is well tolerated by patients. Pain is minimal as we use a local anesthetic. During the procedure you may feel some hot spots that last a few seconds. Our medical aesthetic nurse Ange is certified and experienced in administering the miraDry treatment and will ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure.

Are there any side effects?

You may experience some localised swelling which typically clears within a few weeks. Some patients have short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms which gradually disappears.

How long does it last?

Unlike other sweat-control treatments miraDry can be considered permanent. This is because the sweat glands are markedly and permanently reduced and do not regenerate.

What is the cost?

The treatment is $2500. If underarm sweating is extremely excessive then a second treatment may be required, the cost of a second treatment is $1500.

Other sweat-control treatments are temporary and have to be repeated every 4 to 6 months guaranteeing continual, longterm costs unlike the miraDry treatment.

You can be sweat free forever.

The miraDry treatment is admistered by our trained nurse Haley in our Chatswood rooms.
