Our miraDry® in Seattle treatment is increasing in popularity for both men and women who want to control underarm perspiration. It is the only non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment designed to reduce excessive underarm sweating and odors. At Egrari Non-Invasive Center (ENIC) in Bellevue, we serve the Seattle area with miraDry® treatments in the privacy and comfort of our world-class, state-of-the-art facility.
For some people, excessive underarm sweating is an embarrassing and stressful problem. Men and women living with this issue may be tired of worrying about underarm stains on clothing and the need to apply deodorant and change clothes frequently. More people also have concerns about the health effects of the aluminum in over-the-counter and prescription deodorants.
miraDry® is not only for people who suffer with excessive sweating. Whether you sweat a lot or a little, miraDry® is a long-term solution to minimize underarm sweating and odors. This treatment produces immediate, long-lasting results. It dramatically reduces underarm sweating, helps control underarm odors, and makes it possible to avoid using underarm deodorants and antiperspirants.
miraDry® uses their innovative miraWave technology that consistently delivers a heat energy to the targeted area, the eccrine and apocrine glands (the glands responsible for sweat and odor), destroying the glands ability to excrete sweat and odor. Hair follicles are also destroyed.
To permanently reduce underarm sweat and odors.
Our Seattle miraDry® procedure lasts approximately one hour. You will be reclining during treatment, and your underarms will be numbed prior to the procedure. Most patients experience little or no pain or discomfort.
Downtime after the procedure is little or none. Most patients are able to return to work and normal activities immediately. Typically, vigorous activity and exercise can be resumed within several days. You may experience some minor discomfort and soreness in the armpits for several days after treatment.
Results are achieved in as little as one treatment. However, you may need more than one treatment to achieve optimal results. After a one-on-one consultation and careful evaluation, our knowledgeable plastic surgeon can tailor a miraDry® treatment plan for you based on the degree of sweat reduction you want to achieve.
After the first treatment, you can expect an immediate reduction in underarm sweating. Once destroyed, sweat glands do not grow back, so you can expect results to be long-lasting. Although results vary from person to person, most patients experience an average of 83% sweat reduction with miraDry® treatment. This means no more underarm deodorant and no more worry about wet spots, sweat stains on your clothing, and embarrassment.
