For anyone who is tired of dealing with underarm sweat, odor, and hair, a new solution is available at Duet: miraDry®. A non-invasive, FDA approved, in-office procedure that can take care of underarm issues in as little as one treatment, miraDry® is now available at Duet Plastic Surgery.
Regular antiperspirants typically only reduce sweat by 20%; "clinical" antiperspirants are not significantly drier at 30% reduction. MiraDry® has been clinically shown to reduce sweating by up to 82%, permanently.
The typical human body has over 2 million sweat glands, and each underarm contains only 1% of those sweat glands. After treatment with miraDry®, your underarms will be significantly drier - many patients are able to throw away their old antiperspirants and deodorants. You will continue to sweat normally everywhere else. The miraDry® procedure has been performed over 55,000 times throughout the world, with an excellent safety record and very satisfied patients.
The miraDry® procedure is performed in the office, using numbing medication to keep you comfortable throughout. It takes about an hour, and many patients bring earbuds to listen to music or take care of work on their mobile during their procedures. Most patients are able to return to work right away, and the effects of miraDry® are immediate.
