MiraDry Procedure for Excessive Sweating in Richmond Hill. What are the Benefits of MiraDry?

Excessive sweating in the armpits, legs, face, and head affects approximately one percent of the world population. This can cause distress and embarrassment to the sufferer. Hyperhidrosis is a medical word for a disorder in which the sympathetic nervous system over stimulates the sweat glands without regard for temperature regulation.

This issue has a direct impact on social life, careers, and the self-esteem of the person suffering from it. MiraDry works by delivering carefully controlled electromagnetic radiation beneath the underarm skin to the location where sweat glands are located, causing the sweat glands to thermolyze (decompose due to heat).

While electromagnetic technology eliminates sweat glands, the top layers of the skin are cooled and protected at the same time. Because sweat glands are not thought to regrow following treatment, the effect is visible nearly immediately and the consequences are long-lasting.

Some people may only require one treatment, however two treatments spaced three months apart are recommended for optimal results. Doctors have narrowed the problem down to two types of glands. The apocrine glands create odor-causing fluid, while the eccrine glands produce sweat. MiraDry destroys these glands, ensuring that the armpits are always dry.

Microwave energy is used by the MiraDry technology to target and destroy apocrine and eccrine glands in your underarm. Once these glands are eliminated, they are permanently lost. Humans don’t need to sweat from the glands in the armpit. MiraDry technology uses microwave energy to target and destroy eccrine  and apocrine glands in the underarm. This procedure destroys these glands permanently. 

What is the procedure like?

MiraDry involves no surgical cuts or any form of incision into the skin. The experienced physician will customize treatment for each underarm area with multiple placements of the MiraDry handpiece. Also, Local anesthesia is also administered to the underarms prior to the procedure to give the patient comfort and create a safe procedure. The office visit typically lasts about 90 minutes.



Usually, the best results are obtained with two procedures spaced three months apart from each other. The second procedure is not needed all the time but for some it gives the boost to finish the procedure successfully.


Other treatment options, for example Botox injections is made to only temporarily disable the sweat glands for an amount of time and it could also be a procedure which involves surgery with its inherent risks that are associated with it. It is only the MiraDry procedure can provide a long-lasting solution with a non-invasive treatment.


There are many benefits that come with choosing MiraDry. Here are a couple of them:

  1. IT IS NON-INVASIVE: Opting for a non-surgical treatment in removing sweat glands means that you avoid all the risks and anxiety associated with surgery. A lot of people are wary of getting under the knife to solve their problems of underarm over sweating. So, it comes as a boon to them to have the option of MiraDry which of course uses electromagnetic radiation beneath the underarm skin to the area of interest, causing the sweat glands to thermolyze. 

  2. IT STOPS UNDERARM ODOR: Sweating in the pits naturally produces a foul odor. So, for a person that suffers from excessive underarm sweating this means the odor is greatly increased. This represents the main reason most people choose the MiraDry sweat gland removal treatment. Removing the sweat glands eliminates the recurrence of the foul odor that is associated with sweating.

  3. CLOTHING WITH LESS PIT STAINS: Clothing are an expensive investment that is necessity, and most of us dislike wearing stained clothing as much as any other. The worst-case scenario is when a shirt is otherwise in perfect condition but has yellowing under the arms, rendering it unwearable. The ugly stains under the arms of garments are caused by a mix of sweating and antiperspirant chemicals. Because you’ll sweat less after getting sweat gland removal treatment, you’ll be able to say goodbye to pit stains.

  4. IT IS A VERY SAFE: MiraDry has been utilized in over 55,000 treatments worldwide and has a proven track record of safety. You will experience little to no pain as a result of the anesthesia, and you will be able to return to work immediately. After treatment, it’s best to avoid doing anything strenuous for a few days. You may experience temporary swelling, tingling, numbness or soreness in the treated area, but these symptoms fade quickly.

  5. IT REDUCES THE NEED FOR DEODORANTS AND ANTI-PERSPIRATION: Antiperspirants temporarily prevent the flow of sweat, and deodorants mask the foul smell. Most commercial antiperspirants include deodorizers, but deodorants don’t prevent the accumulation of sweat. After treatment, you’ll never have to spend time and money finding deodorants that work for you.

  1. PERMANENT RESULTS ARE A RESULT: If you have been using deodorants to manage excessive underarm sweat, you might know that it requires a lot of upkeep. To prevent sweating, you must reapply the product consistently throughout the day. Sometimes there isn’t a convenient time or place to reapply the deodorant which can cause embarrassment or more stress, thus more sweat. Unlike these temporary sweat solutions, this treatment provides permanent results. Miradry heats glands during this procedure to destroy them. Once this destruction process occurs, the glands do not ever return they are effectively removed forever. Sweat gland removal eliminates the source of the sweat instead of merely covering it up.

  2. LITTLE DOWNTIME: The great benefit of this treatment can be said to be the fact that many people can return to psychical activities like running, exercising, driving back from the procedure or any other activity in their daily routine. It is one of the advantages that comes with it being noninvasive by nature.

  3. IT IS APPROVED: MiraDry is approved and used by hundreds of thousands of people around the world as a tried and tested treatment. It has been studied and it passed the regulations by the US FDA as well other approval bodies around the world.

  4. RESULTS ARE INSTANTANEOUS:  Unlike other procedures that require a person to wait days or perhaps weeks for the procedure to visibly work, MiraDry’s results are you experienced immediately after the procedure is done. After as little as one treatment, you will experience a reduction in sweating and odor caused by the glands.
