The miraDry delivers precisely controlled electromagnetic energy to the armpits. This supplied energy generates heat, resulting in so-called thermolysis of the sweat glands. As a result, these sweat glands are switched off with high precision and a lasting result. At the same time, the skin is protected against overheating by means of a continuous water-cooled cooling system. Contact with the skin only takes place by means of a sterile packaged cooling element, the so-called BioTip, which is renewed before each treatment. The miraDry displays the treatment on the screen step by step.
Because the sweat glands are not re-created by the body after the miraDry treatment, not only good but also lasting results are achieved with this new treatment. Moreover, the results are noticeable immediately after the treatment while the side effects are minor.

ABOUT THE DOCTOR AND MIRADRY TREATMENT
Dr Van de Velde Stefaan
The doctor treats each armpit area with multiple insertions of the miraDry handpiece. Local anesthesia is administered to the armpits prior to the procedure. Your visit to the clinic usually takes about an hour. Two procedures with three months in between are required to achieve the best results.
Your doctor will probably recommend an over-the-counter painkiller for a few days and the use of ice packs. Immediately after the procedure you should be able to resume your normal activities or work and normally you can start exercising again within a few days. Some local discomfort or swelling is normal and disappears within a few weeks. Some patients have a short-term changed feeling in the skin of their armpits or upper arms, which gradually disappears.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MIRADRY
Excessive sweating can be a major burden in everyday life. Many of you will have already tried all possible deodorants and anti-perspirants. A few of you may already have had an expensive, painful or invasive treatment, with no lasting results.
If you are familiar with any of the situations below, we strongly recommend that you consider the miraDry treatment and seek non-binding advice:
- Do you use an anti-perspirant very frequently?
- Does armpit sweating interfere with your daily activities?
- Does your choice of clothing take your armpit sweating into account?
- Do you have to change your shirt several times a day?
- Are you ashamed of your armpit sweat?
- Are you tired of worrying about your excessive perspiration?
Other treatment options aim to temporarily eliminate the sweat glands or involve surgery with the associated risks. Only the miraDry procedure offers a permanent solution with non-invasive treatment.
If outbreaks of armpit sweat, stained clothing, or regular application of anti-perspirant interfere with your daily life, you may be a good candidate for the miraDry procedure. Talk to your doctor to find out if the miraDry procedure is right for you.
