Today, let’s dive into a topic that might not be as glamorous as our usual beauty secrets, but it’s something many of us deal with – hyperhidrosis! Are you tired of constantly battling with sweaty underarms that leave you feeling self-conscious and uncomfortable? Well, don’t worry, because we have the perfect solution for you – miraDry! Welcome to From Damp to Dry, your ultimate guide to conquering excessive sweating with this game-changing procedure. 


Picture a life where you can confidently raise your arms without worrying about unsightly sweat stains or unpleasant odors – sounds like a dream come true, right? Approximately 7.8 million people in the United States suffer from hyperhidrosis. Of those 7.8 million people, about 4 million of them suffer from axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating).


This step-by-step guide will walk you through the incredible journey of miraDry, a non-invasive procedure that promises to transform your life by keeping you dry and confident.

Understanding Excessive Sweating

There are two main types: primary and secondary, and they each come with their own set of causes. So, let’s break it down, shall we?


Primary Hyperhidrosis: The Unapologetic Sweater


This is the OG of excessive sweating, no underlying health drama – just your sweat glands throwing a party. While the exact cause isn’t crystal clear, it’s believed to be a combination of genetic factors, nerve overactivity, and your body decides it’s time to crank up the heat. Blame it on the genes and some nerve overstimulation – your body’s way of saying, “Let’s get this moisture party started!”



Genetics: If your family has a penchant for perspiration, you might be next in line.

Nerve Overstimulation: Sometimes, the nerves that control your sweat glands get a bit too excited, leading to a non-stop sweat-a-thon.


Secondary Hyperhidrosis: The Unexpected Guest


Unlike its primary counterpart, secondary hyperhidrosis crashes the party with some health-related drama. Hormones, medications, and underlying health issues are the puppet masters, orchestrating an unexpected sweat session.



Medical Conditions: Conditions like diabetes, thyroid problems, or infections can cause excessive sweating.

Medications: Some drugs can induce hyperhidrosis. 

Hormonal Changes: Pregnancy, menopause, or just regular hormonal shifts can give your sweat glands their marching orders.


Whether it’s primary or secondary, understanding the causes is the first step to finding what is the best course of treatment.

Living with Hyperhidrosis 

Imagine navigating your day constantly self-conscious about the sweat stains on your clothes, the dampness of your palms, and the way people might perceive you. This is the reality for individuals living with hyperhidrosis.


While it may seem trivial to some, those with hyperhidrosis know all too well the physical discomfort and emotional distress it can cause.


From avoiding social interactions to feeling perpetually uncomfortable in their own skin, those with hyperhidrosis often face daily challenges that can take a toll on their mental well-being.


It’s not just about dealing with inconvenient sweating; it’s also about feeling isolated, anxious, and sometimes even ashamed due to society’s unrealistic standards of beauty and perfection.


This is ultimately why Dr. Sanchez and our team have focused on finding innovative solutions beyond traditional treatments like Botox, prescribed antiperspirants, or surgery for this condition. miraDry – a non-invasive and FDA-cleared technology is the miracle we have all been looking for.

The staff was professional and polite. Reviewed all info regarding the miraDry procedure and thoroughly answered my questions. The procedure itself went as described. On 2nd day after the procedure, I was able to go to work with no problems.

Making the Choice: Why miraDry Stands Out Among Hyperhidrosis Treatments

miraDry stands out as a game-changer in the world of sweat reduction treatments thanks to its unparalleled effectiveness and minimal downtime. Unlike traditional methods such as antiperspirants or Botox injections, miraDry offers a permanent solution by targeting sweat glands directly with precision. This innovative approach not only stops excessive sweating at its source but also eliminates odor-producing bacteria, leaving you feeling fresh and confident all day long.


One of the key advantages of miraDry is its quick recovery time, allowing you to resume your daily activities almost immediately after treatment. Say goodbye to inconvenient follow-up appointments or constant reapplication of topical solutions—miraDry delivers long-lasting results with just one session. 


Additionally, this non-invasive procedure boasts high patient satisfaction rates, with many individuals reporting significant reductions in underarm sweat volume within days of treatment. Experience freedom from embarrassing sweat stains and overpowering body odors with MiraDry’s cutting-edge technology that puts your comfort and confidence first.

How Does miraDry Work

This non-invasive procedure utilizes a handheld device that uses electromagnetic energy to target and eliminate sweat glands in the underarm area. It penetrates the skin, reaching the sweat glands while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. Once the electromagnetic energy reaches the targeted sweat glands, it thermally disrupts and eliminates them. 


Simultaneously, miraDry provides a cooling system that ensures a comfortable procedure the whole time. As a result, you will experience a significant reduction in underarm sweating, providing a long-lasting solution that allows you to confidently embrace a sweat-free life.

The miraDry Procedure Unveiled

  • Shave your underarms 4 to 6 days before treatment.
  • Do not use antiperspirant the day before and the day of treatment. 
  • Wear comfortable clothes where your underarms are accessible. 


During the Procedure:


  1. We will start your treatment with numbing injections administered by one of our certified miraDry practitioners. This ensures you a painless and comfortable treatment.
  2. The underarm area is marked with a temporary tattoo in preparation for treatment.
  3. Time to treat. A handheld device is passed over the skin, eliminating sweat and odor glands while reducing hair (a bonus, we hadn’t mentioned yet)! 




Length of Treatment: at least 1 hour

Pain: Little no pain. Many describe it as some pressure with light pulling on the skin.

Recovery Process: The area will likely be red, tender, and swollen. An ice compress should be applied to reduce any swelling that may occur. Most symptoms should improve within a couple of days and be completely gone in two weeks. 

Downtime: The greatest thing about miraDry? You can jump right back into your day with no downtime. Compared to surgery that requires a week of recovery.

Feel free to head back to work or continue with your plans! Just keep in mind there will be some tenderness.
