What is miraDry®?
M iraDry® is a safe, clinically proven, FDA-cleared answer for significantly reducing underarm sweat. It’s a simple 60-75 min outpatient non-surgical procedure performed in the office of Capizzi, M.D. Cosmetic Surgery and Skincare. There are no surgical incisions or cuts needed for the procedure. miraDry® delivers controlled electromagnetic energy to the underarm area to eliminate underarm sweat glands and provides permanent reduction of underarm sweat in a completely non-invasive way. Antiperspirants only temporarily disable the sweat glands for varying lengths of time and require repeated use to maintain effectiveness. Surgical options pose inherent risks.
Is miraDry® right for me?
miraDry® is great for those who are experiencing excessive underarm sweat, tired of stains in the underarm areas of their shirts, or want a more natural, toxic-free lifestyle, because they no longer need antiperspirants.
If you no longer want to be embarrassed to raise your arms, ruin your business shirts or blouses, or only wear dark clothing to hide underarm stains, then miraDry® is right for you!
What is the process?
The MiraDry® process begins with an informative conversation by phone or in person to discuss your concerns and if miraDry® is the right treatment for you. You’ll then meet with our Patient Care Coordinator to talk about scheduling.
At the time of your appointment, a temporary ink stencil is placed on the area to act as a guide for the hand piece, and the area is cleansed and numbed. Next, patients feel a slight pull as their skin and glands are brought closer to the surface of the hand piece, which helps give the patient the best results possible. The final step of the treatment is when miraWave TM energy is delivered destroying the sweat and odor glands. At the same time, a soothing cooling effect is delivered to protect the skin.

“I have had an issue with excessive underarm sweat for much of my adult life. It seemed to progressively get worse the older I got. I tried every solution possible: from home remedies to other procedures. Nothing worked! After having the Mira-Dry procedure done, I can say my life has truly changed. It is amazing how it has eliminated my sweat and odor problems. Completely erased them! I now feel more confident and never need to worry about my underarms again.
