What is MiraDry?

MiraDry is an easy non-surgical procedure that permanently reduces underarm sweat and odor. The miraDry system uses thermal energy that targets and eliminates sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once these glands are eliminated, they do not grow back!

MiraDry Treatment

Step One

Numb the area.

The first step of the miraDry treatment is numbing the area. Local anesthesia is administered to temporarily numb the area to ensure maximum comfort during treatment.

Step Two

Mark the area.

The second step in the treatment process is marking the area. A temporary tattoo is laid on the treatment area for your aesthetician to follow when completing your treatment.

Step Three


The last step of the process is treating the area to eliminate your sweat and odor glands. Say goodbye to those smelly sweat stains!

What is Recovery from MiraDry like?

Immediately after:

Immediately underarm swelling, numbness, bruising, and sensitivity may occur. In that case, these side effects can be easily remedied with cold compresses and ibuprofen.

One week:

Around the one-week mark, you should notice some hair falling out and reduced sweating and odor.

One to two months:

Throughout the next months, you should have continued progress. If after 6 months, you feel you desire more of a result, you can schedule your second treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

MiraDry uses thermal energy to penetrate the underarm area where sweat and odor glands are. This procedure targets these glands and eliminates them forever.

Is there any pain or downtime?

Most patients describe the procedure as painless or very little discomfort, with little downtime. We use a local anesthetic to numb the underarm area to ensure that patients remain comfortable throughout the treatment. Many return to regular activities immediately after, but we recommend avoiding strenuous activity for about a week post-treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Every patient’s results are specific. While most people see desired results after one treatment, a second treatment is often recommended especially for severe cases.

What is the cost of miraDry?

The price of a miraDry treatment, like most cosmetic procedures, can vary depending on a number of factors as each patient is different. A licensed, expertly trained practitioner at St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery Medical Spa will discuss the cost of the first treatment (which is typically under $2,000.00) during the consultation.

Does it hurt?

All patients tolerate pain differently but most patients describe the process as painless. Before the treatment starts, a local anesthetic will be injected into the underarms to numb and minimize discomfort.
