Don’t Sweat the Holidays, try miraDry!

It’s about that time where some start to stress the holidays and all that they entail, but WDC has the sweat free solution for the season. miraDry ® is our permanent sweat and odor reduction device for the underarm area, exclusively at WDC.

miraDry ® is the only noninvasive, FDA-cleared treatment that will free you from the bothersome problems of underarm sweat. By eliminating the sweat and odor glands, you can feel confident that your underarms will remain dry in any situation. We know that this may seem too good to be true, so here are some frequently asked questions about miraDry ® to give you a better understanding of the treatment.

  1. Don’t I need sweat glands? Not in your armpits! You are born with approximately 2 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. After your miraDry ® treatment you will experience the many benefits of dry underarms, and you will continue to perspire normally elsewhere.
  2. How does it work? The miraDry system uses proprietary miraWave energy that targets and destroys sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are destroyed they do not grow back so that means once they are gone, they are gone for good.
  3. Is it safe? Yes, miraDry has been used in over 55,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record.
  4. Is there downtime? Depending on what your typical day is like, downtime can be minimal to none. Most patients return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise and vigorous activity is typically resumed within several days. You may experience discomfort in your armpits up to a week.
